Question about Mitsubishi HS-U778 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Everything's in black & white

I'm attempting to transfer VHS tapes to DVD using a Mitsubishi HS-U778 I bought new but hadn't used before now. Even after adjusting the tracking, I can only get a clear black & white picture, never color. I've tried this on several commercial VHS tapes as well with the same result. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Mitsubishi HS-U540 VHS VCR How do you connect the red, white, and yellow cables?


The RED is Right Speaker the WHITE is Left Speaker and the YELLOW is for
Video. They connect with RCA Cables to the same color coded inputs on yout TV.

You may find it easlier to just use a CoAxial Cable; Use a CoAxial for the CABLE IN to the Cable Box then 1 CoAxial from the Cable Box OUT to the VCR IN then use 1 OUT from VCR to TV IN. That is much easlier then using RCA Cables.

We just bought a new 32" panasonic led tv. Hooked everything up and works fine with normal television broadcast. However, we have a Sony DVD/VHS combo hooked up that doesn't perform well. When we play...


If you are using the composite cables (RWY) make sure the red and white are plugged into the audio jacks and NOT the component cable plugs (RGB.) If you have the red audio cable plugged into the red component plug this will cause issues, especially with the sound.

E2 error


Just had the same E2 come up on my HSU-445. The only thing we could figure out was to try a different tape than the one that was in there when the error came up. That seemed to do the trick. Not sure how long that will work. Good luck.

VHS tapes are black and white


The tapes are B/W or one of the playback video heads is not making contact with the tape. The video head may need to be adjusted. You can take it in to get it fixed or buy a new one. The unit today is worth around $25-$30.

E2 error


Something might've been broken in the forced tape removal. VCR tape carriage (the cassette unit) assemblies are rather delicate, easily broken, in contrast to the units in early VCRs (from the '80s or early '90s). Use of force in tape removal... can break stuff, or perhaps get the gear timing fouled up. Take the top cover off, look for broken pieces of this assembly. If this assembly has gears on the right side, this obviously means it is gear driven. Timing is set by lining up marks on the gears, in most cases. Setting this might be tricky- service literature will tell you how to set this, and in what mode the marks line up.
