Re: Vcr setup menu

You could have a separate record head that is working & a separat pay head that is misaligned or damaged.
What u are talking about is [OSD] On Screen Display, did you always have it?, Did it suddenly go away?

VHS tape is running at high speed when insert it to VCR. no playback..buttons doesnot work.

Check if the fast forward button is more inside than the rest of the buttons. May be its stuck in the ff position. After all they were just micro switches below the plastic buttons strip. The specific ff micro switch may be stuck, if I were you I would try some switch cleaning spray to loosen it. But be prepared that the control ic is busted.

Err on display when insert tape, no functions work.

Two things. First there is some damage to the tape transport mechanism. Only a good look around will confirm this. Secondly a faulty mode switch.

GE VG4270 vcr power turns off quickly when recording or playing a tape

Have someone look inside---if tape is not loading all the way against the video heads or tape does not move in play-rewind-FF then there is a problem with the transport mechanism which is what performs these functions.

There appears to be no 'menu' button on the remote

First make sure the cables are truly in the right places. The antenna or cable goes to the VCR's antenna input connector, and there should be a cable from the output connector to the TV's antenna input. Sometimes people get the input and output cables reversed.

The VCR's output to the TV will either be on channel 3 or 4. Those are the only choices, so you should be getting the signal on one of them. On some Sanyo models there is a switch on the back near the "out to TV" connector to select the channel. On others you need the remote to select through the VCR setup menu. Check the remote for a button labeled "TV/VCR" and press that while a tape is playing. That button controls whether the signal from the VCR goes to the TV, or if it just passes the antenna signal through to the TV. Try both channels 3 and 4 on the TV.

If you are never able to get a picture from the VCR on either channel, its RF output section may be bad. This can happen. You can get around this if your TV has a/v inputs available. Connect the red and white audio (red is right channel and white is the left) output jacks and yellow video output jack on the VCR to the corresponding inputs on the TV. Then switch the TV to the a/v input to watch the VCR.

VCR to TV setup needed

Doreen, it is a simple job. At the back of the VCR you will find two sockets mentioned Video Out and Audio Out. Put the yellow plug in Video Out of VCR and the other end of this cable will have another yellow plug, which you put in the Video IN (PUT) of the TV. Take the White plug of the cable and put it in AUDIO OUT of the VCR and put the other end in RED AUDIO IN(PUT) of the TV, (Older VCRs like yours did not have stereo sound capability, and so there is only ONE Audio OUT from the VCR. )
Now, put a tape in the VCR and hit PLAY. Switch onthe TV and select AV1 or AV2. You should be able to get Picture and sound.

Akai VSG285 video - I can't tune any TV stations thru to the VCR?

This sounds like a hookup or programming problem.

The typical hookup is cable/satellite box output to VCR antenna/RF input, then VCR antenna/RF output to television input. Since you are able to watch pre-recorded tapes, the latter is already correct. There are other ways to connect, using the audio/video outputs of VCR to audio/video inputs of the TV. Older or low end TV sets may not have these connections.

If by chance you are using an outdoor antenna (not cable or satellite) then the antenna connects to VCR antenna/RF input and VCR output as above. You will also need to program the VCR into the stations- most late VCRs will scan for active channels, and program themselves to those channels.

I'm not sure of the capabilities of newer cable & sat boxes, but generally, you had to tune that box to the channel you wanted to record. The VCR is set to channel 3 or 4 depending on the output of the cable box.

Lastly, most VCRs of the last 10+ years require the remote to setup advanced functions, such as timed record, date & channel setup functions. The buttons on the VCR itself only do very basic functions, Stop/Play/Rewind/F-forward/Eject etc.

If you don't have the orig. remote, some universal remotes may be able to do advanced programming functions.

How to set clock on Orion VCR VR0419

Most late VCRs require the remote box to set the clock, timed recording etc. Assuming you have the Orion remote, it should have a programming or menu button, and the function you need can be selected from a list of options. If the remote is an aftermarket unit (non-Orion), it must have the capability to do the advanced setup (clock set etc.). Many aftermarket remotes only do basic channel selection, and tape functions (play, rewind, stop, etc.).
