  1. 1

I have a Panasonic vcr that has recently has gone awry.and is making a very high pitched noise and will not power on

It sounds like either a mechanical failure shutting the machine down or the switch mode power supply just gave out. Repairing VCR's is not worth the charges these days BUT head to your local Goodwill store. There you'll find a stack of good VCR's for less than $10 each.

I have a Sharp VC-H982 VCR. Went to turn on today and it is not getting any power. Worked fine last night. I have moved the power cord to a different receptical, still nothing. Is there a fuse that may...

If the unit is totally dead meaning no standbye light of or nothing on the display its dark, then you may of blown the AC line fuse. This is the first thing to check the fuse is inside the unit you can trace its location by taking off the top of the VCR and tracing the pwr cord to the point where it connects to the power supply, here is where you will find the AC line fuse use a ohm meter set on continunity to check the fuse for open condintion. If open or blown replace with same voltage and Amperage rating as indicated on the board or the fuse itself. If you find the fuse is good then you have a power supply standbye voltage missing and is related to the power supply. In which case it may be cheaper to just purchase another.

VHS tape is stuck in the machine. How do I remove it?

This is often a frustrating problem but if you feel you can handle it go ahead with the following, otherwise get professional electronics help. If you have tried to eject the tape and tried other obvious ways to extract the tape and nothing has worked then you can remove the top cover and manually remove the tape. It is not that hard to do most of the time. First unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. You do not want to get a short or get shocked or zapped. Just unscrew the screws holding the cover in place and set the cover aside. Look at the tape to see where it is hung up. If you need to push the tape around so you get it off the posts or otherwise free up the tape, then gently do so until you free the tape from the tape transport. Sometimes this is all you need to do to extract the tape. You may be able to push out the tape from the VCR at this point. If you can get all the magnetic video tape back into the cassette but the tape simply will not come out then place the cover back onto the VCR, plug the VCR into the wall outlet, power on and try to eject the tape now. Sometimes this works. If all else fails, take the VCR into a electronics repair shop and have them remove the tape for you. They may tell you the VCR needs repairs also so this does not happen again.

Power wont come on but clock is light up.

One of the voltages in the power supply has gone bad. These unts have multiple voltage levels out of the power supply and one of those has developed a problem. In a case like this it is best to try and find parts on ebay and swap them in. In some cases soldering is required to replace the power supply so the repair is above the novice level. You can take it to a repair shop or if you just want the tape out-remove the top cover and spin the motor or the gears that spin when the tape ejects untill the tape is pulled back into the cartridge and forced out the front. - the bad news is that your repair is more of a replacement scenerio. buy a used vcr unit and repalce the vhs tape. Back up and running :) good luck. Dan

Same problem with my HR-3911U after a power spike. Cracked open the box and as I suspected the fuse had blown. Removed fuse, plugged in and tested across connectors, 115v ac good reading. Replaced fuse (1.25a 250v) plugged in and nothing. The deck electronics had fried. Keeping for spare parts such as head and transport mech.

Time to get a new one and a better surge protector. My UPS logs show a 1200+v spike the day it died. We had storms all around us and thunder in the distance, but nothing close by and no rain, but the spike still made it to our inadequate surge protector.

I've read a lot of forums where other JVC owners have experienced the same problem. It appears to be inherent to these JVC Vcrs.

No power

I assume you unplugged the unit for several minutes and tried plugging it back in to reset it. Is the outlet ok? Did you try plugging something else into the same outlet and it worked?

If the cord is ok and the fuse isn't blown and the VCR is completely dead, I would say that you have a problem in the power supply section. This could be a bad transformer, rectifier or regulator module. Unfortunately you'll need to take it to be serviced.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Power light is on, but nothing happens.

Two questions, Are you able to load a cassette?, and are you able to watch TV through your VCR? These two questions are vital to further analysis. if the answer to both is no then you will have to take the VCR to a TV repair shop because it will require internal repairs that you may not have the equipment to perform. Please get back to me with the answers to these two questions Thank you,
