Re: VCR Help

SP means Standard Play. Generally that is the Normal speed at which a VCR Records or Plays back a tape. SP is automatic, as it is the Standard setting. If you wish to record more picture than the normal 120 mins on a tape, then you choose LP (Lond Play) oe EP (Extended Play).

What does SAP stand for on the VCR and how do I remove it?

SAP stands for [Second Audio Programme]. In some tapes, audio will be recorded more than one language, where the listener can select his option. It can be removed from entering into its menu, according to its manual. There will be options for that. Refer to its operatin manual, go to the sound adjustment section, and find the option; set it to OFF. OK.

Sony - SLV-685HF -vcr using universal remote one for all 3021 can't change recording from sp to ep so I can record more on tape. vcr says auto, or 180 in speed setting always records sp. I just want to pop...

I solved it myself by selecting guide on the remote, then the tv screen said enter plus code. ijust type in all 0's for each space given (0000000) then the setting instantly changrd to EP from SP. I pushed set on the universal remote , that was it.
It was necessary to use the power button to turn vcr off like tthe TV screen said because I was just setting the timer. You can just go to menu or whatever next.
I didn't appreciate FixYa trying to sell me a membership before even
attempting to offer a solution. They could have at least faked trying to find a solution. Instant response we would like to offer our premium services ....

Change VCR settings from SP to LP or EP

I have a Panasonic VCR with a different, but I know how to 'fix' your problem on my m/c. The remote for my m/c has a "REC MODE" button; operating that button changes from SP to EP etc. Check it with the "Program" button on your TV screen.

I have a Sony SLV-EZ717

It sounds like the taped program was recorded on a different speed. The other VCR that you are playing the taped program may not have the speed needed to play it correctly.
Next time when you record a program try to make sure you use a speed that will be compatible on both VCRs.
For example a tape that last 120 minutes, using the different speeds will give the following recording times.
SP means "Standard Play" >>>> 2 hours
LP means " Long Play" >>>>> 4 hours
ELP means " Extra Long Play" 8 hours

Older VCRs have all the 3 speeds but newer ones only have SP and ELP.
Hope this helps.

You may have your SAP settings turned on in your VCR. Check your setup menu and turn SAP off SAP stands for Secondary Audio Program, it allows for bilingual sound if the station is transmitting a SAP signal. Thank you,

VCR not working for some cassettes

What do you mean by "not able to play my VCR with some cassettes. " Is it that some tapes do not display images? No Video? From your name it seems that you are from India, Assuming that to be so, I also presume that you must be possesing a Multi-System VCR, to play back PAL Tapes from India, and NTSC tapes from the US. And if that is the case, I guess it is a simple problem of resetting the System standards. Please go to the Main menu of your VCR using the Remote, and select AUTO in System (You will be given choices of AUTO, PAL, NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.43 and NTSC PB PAL. Likewise, it is entirely possible that your Television SYSTEm Standard has been accidentally changed. If it is Multi System TV, Then, again, using the Remote of the TV, select Menu, and then select AUTO in System. In all likelihood your problem should get solved.
