Question about JVC HR-XVC27U DVD Player/VCR

2 Answers

I have a large, heavy entertainment cabinet, so it is very difficult following the wires to setup my new HDTV. I have a JVC HR_XVC27U that has yellow, red and white cables in the VCR/DVD Out going to TV. I also have a red and white pair in the DVD Audio Out, but I can't identify where this audio feed is going. In addition, I have a Red and While pair laying in the TV section and I can't identify where that audio feed in coming from. I thought they were both ends of the same cables, but I'm now convinced that they are separate cables. The JVC manual doesn't even show the DVD Audio Out being used, so I'm really confused. Any ideas on the use of the two unidentified audio pairs. Thanks.

    Thanks for the quick response and info.

    Why would I have originally used the audio feed without the S Video to match? Would it have had anything to do with the entertainment system's surround sound, maybe?

    Also, any ideas on the unused Red and White pair of cables in the TV/Cable Box area?

Hello Jimcmay,

*Basically your DVD/VCR Combo has a basic Audio / Video Out jacks that you can run the yellow, white, and red cables to your TV's Audio/Video IN jacks.

*Then you have your Component Audio/Video out that runs into your TV's Audio/Video in jacks for your dvd player.The audio cables maybe used for surround sound.

---- If your TV has two sets of IN jacks then hook both sets of audio/video cables up and try it.I looked at the manual as well it appears they run both sets of audio/video cables to the tv. I know my LCD TV has two sets and is hooked up in the same way.

S-Video is for video only it does not utilize sound. This is just a different option rather than using the yellow video component cable.

Post back with any additional questions and I will assist you further.

The yellow, red and white connectors are for the following in order => Video out for DVD/VCR, L&R Audio out for DVD/VCR output. The second set of red and white cables would be used if you wanted to use the S Video connection on the back of your unit for just the DVD part of the machine. Since you would be sending your video signal to a different video input, you would need to supply that input it's own audio. The S VIdeo would give you a much better picture on your new TV. They don't bother to give you that type of a connection for the VCR because unless you had the old SUPER VHS type of a player, you wouldn't need that type of a connection. To get the very best connection from your unit to your new TV you should actually use the COMPONENT VIDEO connections from your unit. Then also connect the yellow, red, and white connections to the new TV. There is a major improvement in picture quality when using that connection.

Good luck and I hope it goes well for you.

How to find a manual for JVC LP21036-039

There isn't a standalone manual for this remote. It is not a programmable remote. It is the basic operation remote supplied with JVC VCR models:

HR-XVC27U Learn More HR-XVC29UJ Learn More HR-XVC37U Learn More
You could go download the manual for one of these VCR and read through the relevant sections. All they'll do though is tell you how the VCR operates from the remote.

Is ther an HDMI cable for JVC xvc27u

There is no HDMI OUT socket on this player. I don't enjoy giving negative answers, so if you could explain why you want to use an HDMI cable with this player, I can possibly make some suggestions which will help you to achieve whatever it is you are trying to do.

If you were simply looking to buy this or any other player and want one with an HDMI output, you should look for something else ;)

Hope this helps.

I have a JVC DVD Player & VCR Model HR-XVC27U. It is hooked up to a Panasonic TV CT-32SL14J. I have Cable. With the JVC, I have lost any audio. If I record a VHS, I get picture, no audio. If I...

Shifting a heavy item, or anything really, can cause damage to either the cable or the port the cable is plugged into very easily.

I recommend replacing the audio cable, or trying an alternate audio output (you may be able to choose between RCA-style stereo audio output, digital PCM and digital optical.)

Similarly, the dvd player may be setup to output audio in a format that isn't matching what your AV receiver is expecting - again a variation of either stereo, digital rca or digital optical.

I hope that helps.

DVD will not eject from JVC HR-XVC27U

Disconnect the Power Cord. Open the Case and go to the DVD unit. On the right side of the unit you will see an indentation which is the mechanical portion of the DVD Unit.

Push the indentatation in, it is the eject switch. The DVD unit door opens remove the DVD stuck in the unit.

Put cover back on plug the unit in, insert a workable DVD and all should be OK.

The problem was the unit could not read a Defective DVD which I made and the unit was locked in to reading the DVD.

I hope this helps
