Question about JVC Televison & Video
I have a JVC HM-DH3000U D-VHS recorder/player.
It places D-VHS just great! But will not play S-VHS or VHS personal recorded or rental tapes. It stays gray & the error code 201 - wait a minute calibrating...
The tape seems to be transporting fine.
I have never recorded analog S-VHS or VHS on this deck yet. Just the digial HD D-VHS tapes.
How can I resolve this problem. I would even be happy to purchase the repair documentation for repair this myself. Since I am new to D-VHS. This was purchased as a refurbish unit, not new.
Appreciate any help.

Yes, if the camera is a US camera then it is NTSC. That would be your problem, you are trying to record an NTSC signal to a PAL video. THe frame rates and resolutions are all wrong. I am even surprised that it is playing back on your TV okay...

The VHS cleaning cassette possibly deposited fiber in the heads in the drum. You may need to open the cabin and examine the heads and the mechanism for foreign matterial.

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?
Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.
Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played
