Re: Code F13

It's sounds like the vcr's tape mechinisum is malfunctioning to me. Try unpluging it for a while. It will correct itself. Or it might have
dew sensors if the room is too cold the vcr wont work until the dew it gone off the heads. If it don't have dew sensors
and plays the tape with dew on it might eat the tape.
also if a timer is overlaping or is set to come on right now it might do this.

It might be that you are trying to capture a signal, when the software is set to capture another form of signal. Try switching the format of the capture on Adobe.

Error 32 on br-s800U

I'm assuming your display reads "Er32 1" which is actually error code 321. This code simply means "Error in loading" and can be caused by many things such as an obstruction, a problem with the loading carriage, or even failure of the machine to enter one of the function modes. On these machines, the error code only describes the "effect", and you have to determine the cause.

After watching and recording, it displayed F 04 and did not eject

This fault means that a new motor coupler and mode switch need to be fitted to your VCR.
This won't be a cheap job and it's up to you if you want it done. Personally, it will be a bit cheaper to get another VCR!

VCR shuts down automatically after displaying the error code F06

Your vcr seems to use the K Mech. F06 Means that the mechanism locks after unload.
The cause of which might be the loading motor or the carriage alignment.

Pro-Tect Plus™ Locking Feature
To disable VCR usage or to protect set timer recordings, the unit can be locked so that the
buttons on the VCR or remote control don’t work.
• To Lock: Press and hold either the remote control’s ON•OFF or VCR button until SAFE
appears in the display to indicate Pro-Tect Plus is active. SAFE also appears if the VCR is
turned on while the feature is activated.
To Unlock: Press and hold either the remote control’s ON•OFF or VCR button until SAFE
disappears from the front panel display. Unlocking is the only way to use the VCR.

E2 is not an error code. It means that the video tuner is set to EXT2 (Scart input 2)

Press the VCR button on the remote control, and try again.

Programming panasonic vcr

First, check in the VCR setup and see if it set for cable or off-air/broadcast/antenna (not always named the same).  If it is set for off-air... then it won't tune cable channels beyond 13.  It must be set for cable mode in order to tune those upper channels (mid-band, superband etc.).

I assume you have the VCR hooked up correctly- cable into VCR antenna/RF input, VCR RF/to TV output to the RF/Ant input of the TV.

Mitsubishi HS-U447 VCR in Lock or "Loc" mode

Hopefully you still the VCR. Your's is stuck in "CHILDLOCK" mode. To release the lock you have to have the remote and press the DISPLAY for 8 to 10 seconds.

The purpose of the CHILDLOCK is to prevent others from using your VCR. If you want to set the VCR back on Lock you again press the DISPLAY for 8 to 10 seconds.

This solution is from the owner manual for HS-U448, so I figure your model is the same.
