Question about JVC HR-A592U S-VHS VCR

1 Answer

Playback problem EP

I have a problem when playing back recording in EP. It plays back briefly okay, then there is interference on the screen and noise as well, the briefly okay again, etc. It plays back perfectly when it records in SP. I have checked the same tape on another VCR, also a JVC, and it plays back fine, both EP and SP. I also have played back a tape recorded in EP on another VCR. The interference on the screen disappears and the sound is fine, but the picture is very jittery. Hope you have some suggestions to correct this.

    No, there is no tracking device. Guess I will have to take it in for repair adjustments. Thanks for your response.

Do you have a tracking control on the
vcr if you do it should be centered during
record It can be adjusted during playback
to clear up the picture adjust it for the best
picture

If you dont have a tracking control on the
vcr then it may require a mechanical adjustment
of the backtension or guidepost which requires
special tools to perform

Changing sp mode to ep


Are you asking how to change the record speed to extended play? This is usually given as a choice when programming a recording. You use your remote to scroll through various options on the input screen and you should find that you can choose between sp/ep/lp (standard, extended and long play)

Video on my Sony VCR (SLV-780HF) goes gray after playing a tape a few seconds. What could be the problem?


The only real cure will be to clean the video head. If that doesn't work then I'm afraid that whatever recorded you EP mode tape was not set up well tracking wise. So other machines struggle to track the tape. Some VCR's will only playback SP or LP tapes and don't have EP mode. In which case you should check to see if these VCR's can play the EP tape and if they can't find one that can.

SONY keeps switching to EP at beginning of playing SP tapes


You may have dirty heads in the vcr---most 4 head machines use two for sp and the other two for lp and or ep.

Tape residue will usually be seen on the drum where the heads are when this happens--also look for the black residue on the tape guides that hold the tape in position against the drum-------

I am trying to record a program in EP mode but when it records it returns back to SP mode. How can I set the tape for EP without it returning to SP?


Most VCR's have a default recording setting for recording speed or other settings. It's just a question of finding the right menu. Have a good look around the menus. However the VCR might default to SP after recording in EP, however the playback should switch to EP when playing.

What does sp and ep stand for when setting the record timer on the vcr


SP = Single Play (normal 1:1 recording)
EP = Extended Play (normally allows two, four or even eight times the normal or Single Play length to be recorded, according to make/model.) Picture quality in EP will not be as good as SP.

Vcr recording speeds


Yes. SP is "Standard Play" and LP is "Long Play", while EP/SLP are short for Extended Play/Super Long Play respectively.

Camera plays in fast forward-like speed


Though I don't know the details of your camera and the tape you are playing, one explanation could be that the tape was recorded in "extended play" EP rather than "standard play" SP. Some VCRs and some cameras are incapable of playing back in EP, a mode where the tape moves at half speed so you can record more on the same tape. The result is that the tape playing back at regular speed appears twice as fast and fast forward will be even faster.

Unfortunately, unless your machine can be manually set to play back in EP (usually it is automatic) the solution is to play it back in a machine that can handle EP.

Poor EP playback


hi sir
the speed in EP is differ from sp ,EP it is much slow then all quality would be less cause you are using less magnetic particles on the tape so here are many reasons for bad recording
first may be you have to clean video heads
or ,you have to clean the path of the tape in the recorder there are some metal guides that turnes with the tape to get it rounds the heads they may be dirty
or clean the capstain pinch roller and its metal roller that makes it run ( the capstain roller )
or you should have new heasd drum sir
