E2 indicates that the loading motor is locked in the unload direction. I am not sure if this applies to the actual Mitsubishi model you have, but have you tried holding the power button on for more than 8 seconds, as that resets the error code on some models.
If the power button suggestion doesn't work I would unplug the unit, then take the top cover off and (carefully!) wiggle the arm that wraps the tape around the head, as if the problem is caused by an iffy sensor that could get it moving. (also generally shake the cogs in the mechanism)
If your feeling competent at taking things apart and putting them together again take the top of the machine (after removing mains power) and look towards the RHS of the deck mechanism and you will see a "Helter-Skelter" shaped piece of plastic which is part of the loading mechanism. Remove the "Pinch Roller" first.
If you carefully remove this taking care to note its orientation (note the position of the small index holes at its base) and that of the gears around it (A closeup pic taken with a digital camera comes in handy here) you can clean/degrease its inner shaft with isopropyl alcohol and a pipe cleaner, regrease it and re-assemble...it sticks due to hardened grease and causes error messages. Or you just replace the machine as it is older and who knows what could go bad next. It's up to you. I hope this helps and good luck!

I cant operate my vcr there's a code on it L2 I can't change the channel or record nothing it's theL2


Haveing looked around the web I can only find results for the E2 code for this model.
E2 indicates that the loading motor is locked in the unload direction.
This means that when the tape was in the machine it tried to unload the tape and got stuck. There could be numorous causes for this that would require investigate. Till the fault is cleared the machine will be unoperational.

Getting E2 error flashing on vcr and can't rewind tape or anything.Don't have user manual to see what that error means.


E2 means: Loading motor locked in the unload direction. Usually(not always) happens with a going bad VCR tape on the rewind. Tape is becoming too difficult to rewind and/or VCR is getting tired. Eject tape. Discard tape as soon as practical, new tapes are cheap. To clear: Hold power on/off button for 8 seconds.

Doesn't give me the option to change the channel when timer recording


If you are recording something on the VCR, it won't let you change the channel. If not, you need to make sure the RC is set to the vcr in question (mine has VCR1 and VCR2)

You can set it up the way I've done for years...put cable line into VCR first, the VCR to TV..you then can watch and record 2 separate channels.

E2 error


Just had the same E2 come up on my HSU-445. The only thing we could figure out was to try a different tape than the one that was in there when the error came up. That seemed to do the trick. Not sure how long that will work. Good luck.

Record one channel while watchign another


Ouirkygirl, a TV\VCR combo can only watch TV on a channel & record THAT channel. If the monitor is connected directly to the VCR then u should be able to RECORD what u see. Do you have a separate channel changer [buttons that say up\down channel ?] on the face of the VCR portion? If so, then u should be able to change the channel ON the VCR, record that channel, then change the channel ON the TV, .... I don't think so,.........any thing is possable

please explain your words :: "but when I record something it jumps to tha channel evern if I am watching something else at the time."
