I can't keep writeing out of recordings and during playback.
When recording a video or during playback i see the battery life, tape speed and other things on the recorded video. i do not want these to show on the image i'm trying to record. all i want is a clear image of what i'm recording nothing more. i do not know how to either turn these off or reset them so this won't happen. i would also like to change the tape speed from sp to extra long play mode if thats possable.
i have lost the manual to this jvc camcorder so your help would be appreciated. i wrote to jvc support at least two other times and got no responce to my problem. i'm trying to work on a video prodject for youtube.com so a speedy responce would greatly be appreciated.. thank you.

Set the M, A, Off, and Play switch to M with a loaded tape. DO NOT touch the Refresh button. Press the Vol switch down one time, this will get you a Top Menu Page on the display screen. Use the Vol wheel to move about in this Menu page. Press the Vol switch again will let you into the different settings.

You don't state the manufacturer or model number in your question, thus we cannot answer. I will say that many do, but there is a caveat. If the the VHS tape is a commercially made movie, chances are it has copy protection on it. Most machines will sense this copy protection and will refuse to copy the protected VHS tape to DVD. This was done to prevent piracy. Home recorded tapes and non-protected tapes will usually work ok. Do not confuse write protection with copy protection however. Write protection is merely the tab on the tape that prevents re-recording of the tape. Copy protection is recorded right onto the tape itself and is read by the machine during playback.
If this brand of media is new to you and the symptom is unique to it, I'd try a different brand.
Monitoring during record would never reveal media problems as there is no immediate playback after record as on old-school 3-head tape recorders.
I've had similar intermittent problems and I never could find a pattern to it except that it always seemed to be on low-end media. My best advice would be to try to find a pattern in your instance and make a change that avoids it. Then publish what you learned for us.
I'm afraid, VHS tape have to be playback on standard speed for good picture and sound and dvd would also burn accordingly.
Noo way for fast dubbing because VHS tape video is analog signal that changed into digital signal in circuits to write on dvd disc.
I hope you understand how this dubbing works.
are those old videos recorded from the same camera? you might need a head cleaner for your camera. Try to play the tapes in different camera for comparison test. caution: make sure that the camera's mechanism does not destroy the tape or put a line or dent on the tape's edges. I suggest you convert those videos to digital format before it's too late.
It is very common when the magnetic heads got dirty. Buy a Mini DV cleaning tape, follow the instruction clean the heads by playing the cleaning tape for a while. Record NEW video and playback to test.
Please know if you play the old video recorded buy the dirty heads, you may not get clear picture, because here is not correct data recorded on the tape.
The monitor you view while recording does not read from the tape where the problem is located, that's why you are not seeing them during recording.
Since they are not visible while recording, the video section is healthy, only the recording is faulty and it is unlikely you can do anything at home to correct it.
This may be a common problem and perhaps Canon is familiar with it.
I recommend you call their service line directly:
Power up camera on Camera mode, go to menu, select camera settings, go to Record Mode and select SP or LP there. Now your camera is ready to record as per selection.
You can not change speed SP/LP during playback mode because its properties of signal set during recording.
What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.
Some possible cause of lines, noise or pixelation during playback are:
1. Dirty heads on the recording machine. If the heads were dirty at the time of recording, the dirty heads didn't record a strong enough signal on the tape. The damage is done for this tape and recovery is unlikely. Best advice here is to use only premium grade new tapes and keep your camcorder clean by occasionally running a cleaning tape.
2. Physical tape damage. Any distortion of the tape will result in mistracking and subsequent loss of data.
3. Built up oxide deposits or other debris in the guidepost corners can also result in tape edge damage. Keep your machine clean!
4. Improper tape storage - Even short term exposure to high temperatures over 130 deg f. can permanently damage the tape. The black cassette housing readily absorbs the sun's infrared rays and internal cassette temperatures can soar even if left in direct sunlight on just a warm day. It doesn't take much heat to slightly distort the plastic shell or ruin the tape contained within.
* Try other tapes to ensure the problem lies within the tape and not the camcorder.
* If the problem becomes apparent on all tapes, try a head cleaner. After cleaning the heads, the tapes may not play cleaner if the recording was done while the heads were dirty.
