Re: Taping shows on a jvc vcr.

Well from memory... you have to Plug in the Antenna to the Video, then from Video to TV, then ya Tune in the "Tuner" section of the Unit.. that outputs on ya TV, then you can simply press the record button(s).. also there is the option of Timer Recording... There was also a TV/VCR switch that had to be toggled on some models... But ya really need a manual I believe the manual is at the below link...

I purchase the above DVD/VCR (wanted the tuner for watching and taping a diff. channel) about two years ago now. It works well for about 6 months. I than had physical problems that made this problem mute...

You could try giving the mechanism a good clean. Use cotton buds and Servisol Video 40 (you should be able to get this online).
Pay attention to the rubber roller area, main tape head, tracking and control heads. But anywhere the tape touches.
If it works remember to clean it every so-often. At least every 6 months, depending on use. More often if someone smokes where the vcr lives, as you will find out when you first clean it if this is the case!

My jvc has developed a tracking problem when viewing tapes recorded on other recorders. I cant seem to correct the problem. It shows old tapes without a problem

VCR tracking has to be set up right, but even then many machines have problems with tracking other vcr's tapes. Generally a good quality commercial tape should track well. If it doesn't then either there's a fault with the tracking on your machine or the tracking is not set up right. Most tracking problems are caused by dirt, or wear on the heads or surfaces. Give your VCR a good clean up, every surface the tape comes into contact with, using Servisol Video 40. If that doesn't solve it you might have to look into the cost of replacing heads, maybe the control/audio head first. Or you should look at having the tracking set up by a proffessional (at a JVC service center). However if the tracking was off, after resetting any tapes the machine has done, may now have problems tracking, whilst other machines tapes and commercial will track normal.

My jvc HR D170 ES vcr used to work fine when suddenly the picture ( snow ) is very bad but sound is ok ...tried to retune to my tv ...tried changing the rf at back ...tried tuning to my other tv and...

The vcr is fine. buy a cleaning tape. people say dry cleaner tapes wear out the heads, but it fixed my problem when my vcr only showed snow. but try a wet tape first. follow the instructions that came with the tape and run it a few times.

Will not release the cassette when ejected and breaks the tape.

there is a spring attached to the tape release gear that will eventuall wear out through time, also, sometimes the rubber belts wear out and throws the timing off.
That would be the first two things to check. Make sure spring is not stretched. Try testing with cover off and watch to see if the part holding the back of the tape releases.

How do I get my VCR to tape programs

Two things to check here. Lets verify the basic functioning of the unit. Have you tried playing back a pre-recorded tape? If so, please post the results here. I suspect that a pre-recorded tape will fail as well. If so, I'll post instructions on how to resolve the problem.

Please keep me posted.

If there is no coaxial cable input on VCR, then it should work by RCA cables. Which is the Yellow , red/white cables. On the back of the VCR. Take a set of RCA cables Yellow for video, red/white for audio to the VCR output.Then do the same to the Television input. Next use the television remote to turn the TV to Video input this will allow you to view what's playing on VCR. Then take another set of RCA cables and reverse the first setup. Attached Cables to VCR input and cables to TV Output. This will allow you record what's on television. Now make sure the cable is screwed to coaxial cable input on television. This will able you to access cable programming on television, view vhs tapes, and record programming directly from television.Good Luck

Can not tape from cable, blue screen

If you have a cable box connected now, leave the VCR on channel 3 all the time and use the channels from the cable box.
The way this should be connected is cable in to cable box and cable out to VCR, VCR output to TV IN.
Hope this works for you.

Vcr taping using rca

Connect the VCR's audio/video outputs to the TV's audio/video inputs. These are the red,white,yellow connectors. get the same colored type cables and it is real easy. Switch the TV to the corresponding input selection. Of course, the signal source needs to be connected to the VCR's input
