Re: EarPhones

Several ways.....Wirless headphones that have a small transmitter that you attached to RCA jacks coming out of audio of VCR. You can walk around or sit as far away as you need.
2nd. CONVERTER:: A RCA male plug [ again you conect to back of VCR audio plug] to audio [female] jack [you connect earphones]

Hi ridic.

It sounds like you have a defective Mode-Switch. This is a rotary switch that tells the microcontroller chip what position the loading mechanism is in. It's a very common fault in many brands of vcr and is usually fixable without replacing the switch. The switch can be taken apart and the contacts inside can be cleaned, don't panic, it splits in half and can be easily clipped back together.

You need to locate the switch, it will either be on the bottom of the mechanism itself or located on the motherboard underneath the mechanism. The mode-switch is circular, about the same size as 2-pence coin (UK Currency) and has 1 moving dial. Look carefully at the switch as it should have a timing mark on it, this will be needed to place the switch back in the right position when cleaning is complete.

Look at the centre of the switch. There should be 4 little clips holding the dial on the switch. Carefully prize the dial away from the rest of the switch using you fingernail to gently un-clip the clips. After some teasing the dial should separate. On the dial you have removed there will be eye-lash type contacts, treat these as if they were made of eggshells, Very delecate. Put the dial to one side for a moment. On the remainder of the switch you should see circular tracks which will be tarnished. Using a cotton bud of cue-tip ( those sticks you clean your ears out with) and some alcahol based cleaning solution, remove any contaminents from the tracks until they shine. Once done return to the dial you removed ealier.

Carefully wipe the tips of the metal lashes with the same solution but Do Not go 'against the grain' clean from the bottom of the lash, going up. Finally before you clip the dial back onto the switch, use your finger to elevate the lashes slightly to give a better contact with the switch once clipped back together, but maintain the angle of the lashes, do not bend them straight up. After clipping the switch back together, allign dial with timing position you noted earlier. Put the vcr back together and give it a try. Post back results and good luck.

I have the same preoblem...need manual

Manuals are available for printout in PDF format from the manufacturer, or with a password through
As I said in a post to another person, make sure that you're routing the TV signal into or through the VCR. If it's from Cable/Satellite or Digital Converter box, it will simply need to be routed with a coaxial cable, it's a simple fiberoptic cable with a copper or gold prong that you screw onto the back. If you're unable to do this, the box for your broadcast/satellite/cable should have a three-way output, color-coded white, red, and yellow. The red and white are for stereo sound, and the yellow is for the video signal. You can route that output into the three-way input on the back or front of the VCR. This can be technically more challenging, depending on how it needs to have the input setup, for instance needing to be on a specific channel, but routing the cable through the input and output for the VCR is the simple way, and should give you no trouble.

If you can get a picture on your TV when you watch a video tape you are half way there. On the back of the VCR there are two coax connections, you may need a flashlight but one will be labeled IN and the other OUT. The one that is labeled Out will be connected to the TV. The other one (IN) is where the Cable from the wall connects into. After you have the connections made turn your TV to either Channel 3 or 4. You will now use your VCR remote to change channels.

These are the basic instructions without knowing what model VCR you have. If the TV will not stay on channel 3 or 4 then you will either need to get it repaired or get a new TV.

Hook up analog vcr to hd tv

You must have a converter box for the tv and for the vcr. Set the vcr to receive chanel 3 and set the converter box to the digital chanel you want to record. Put a splitter on the antenae out and route one to the tv converter box and one to the vcr converter box. GOOD TO GO.

Need a new remote control for Rio Go Video DDV9300 VCR

I do not know what cable provider you have in your area. The best solution that I have used over and over again with replacing a remote since getting an original one is difficult but not impossible. Use remote controls that the cable company provides for its users. There is a small brochure that comes with it to help you program in the correct code. Most of these codes are brand specific and not necessarily model specific. I have always had success going this route in solving remote control problems. Give it a try. Those remotes enable you to program up to five or more units. Very good. God bless.

Wind noise on vhs

Hi Claire

Wind noise is very common when recording outside.

Firstly, make sure the microphone you use is uni-directional. This means it will work in the same way that a television antenna does, in that it will pick up sound from the direction it points in, but sounds from other directions will be attenuated. These mics are often used by broadcasters and those in noisy situations, football matches etc.

Secondly, make sure your microphone is fitted with a good foam wind cover. If it already has one, fit a thicker one. This is the single most important thing you can do to cut down on wind noise. You can always get yourself some foam and wrap it around the microphone, right over the top, and tie it with a piece of string.
It sounds a bit wacky, but even pro broadcasters do this from time to time.

Finally, consider using an extension mic cable and positioning it closer to the signal source. Be careful though. If the neighbours are that bad, make sure you are not on your own.

Good luck and best wishes
