Re: Vcr recocognizing my remote.

Here is the few steps I would like you to try.

If you have individual remote control for the VCR, check that remote control if its working. You may ask how to check remote control whether its functioning. There is a very accurate method that you can understand if remote control works. You can use a AM radio (Medium Wave), turn on the radio keep the remote closer to radio while turning the tuning dial press the buttons of the remote control. If you hear a patterned sound it will prove you that remote working. you can try known working remote of other devices to understand the method. If you find the remote control not functioning you can change it. If its universal remote control you may need to enter the code that matches with VCR. After perform the simple diagnostic please inform the result for further conclusion.

Good Luck

The remote isn't working (and, yes, I tried new batteries--a couple of times). I need to hit the "TV/VCR" switch. I don't see that same button on the VCR. How can I switch from TV to VCR (and back) when...

I ran into a very similar problem with a TV that I had that did not have a TV/VCR button on it. You HAD to have a remote to change it and the remote for the TV had been LONG lost. The solution was to go to Target or Walmart, and pick up a cheap universal remote. Make sure that the universal remote has a TV/VCR button on it and when you get the right code plugged into the remote it will function just like the original remote.

Can't use VCR

There's nothing wrong with your VCR. Your remote probably set to control your TV. To fix that, simply press the VCR button on the remote, and you should be fine. The "T-U" really means "TV," but the designers at Panasonic wanted to use the standard seven-segment display to cut costs, hence "T-U" instead of "TV."

Remote operation ( remote will not activate vcr )

Sounds dumb, but had the same problem. I removed the batteries and double-checked that I had placed them in their respective slots correctly. If in doubt, use a completely NEW set of bats. Use the best bats you can afford. Also make sure you are pointing/aiming at the VCR sensor straight on; possibly the front of your VCR case is dusty/dirty? Just lightly dust off. No detergents. Good luck.

VCR/Cable TV Connection

I guess you are using the cable TV feed looped through the VCR to the TV set.

Make sure you did not confuse the in and out loop of the VCR.

In the VCR menu, or on the remote there is usually a button called TV/VCR (Video). Make sure it is in the TV mode to watch the cable. In the VCR (Video) mode, the TV must be on the VCR's designated channel to watch the VCR, and the VCR tuner is used to watch the cable channels.

JVC HR-S3901 S-VHS / Switching from TV to VCR no longer works . . .

Ifyou do not see the VCR/TV button switch on the front panel, then its a problem most likly with the firmware in the microprocessor. If you do see the VCR/TV indicator switching in or on the front panel display, most likly a defective RF modulator/switcher or RF antenna pack. You may still be able to get one from like MCM or tritronics or PTS corp can rebuild it for you. I have seen this type of break down many times with VCR's as we used to do hundreds of VCR repairs a day as we did factory service for several companies in the NY/NJ area. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.
