JVC HR-D337MS Multisystem VCR - NO SIGNAL The only information I could find on the internet was it was worth $450.00 in 1991. i hooked up the RF out to RF on the TV in. Pushed play on the VCR. No signal....

Connect RF out of VCR to Antenna IN of TV. There should be a Test Signal switch at rear of VCR. Push it to ON. JVC VCRs generally generate a RF signal in the UHF band, around channel 36. Scan all channels on your TV, you should gete a Test signal of 2 parrallel black bars around channel 36. That is the Channel on which you can view tapes. Switch off 'Test signal' at rear of VCR, and press play. you should be able to watch your tape.

JVC HR -J655EK Video Stuck

Hi hannah. The simplest way to remove stuck tapes is to remove the top cover. Usually just a couple of screws. Then remove the stuck tape and put the cover back into place. You can also look for emergency eject hole and insert a snall pin into the hole and attempt to eject the disc while repeatedly twisting the pin inside the hole.

Good luck!

Taping shows on a jvc vcr.

Well from memory... you have to Plug in the Antenna to the Video, then from Video to TV, then ya Tune in the "Tuner" section of the Unit.. that outputs on ya TV, then you can simply press the record button(s).. also there is the option of Timer Recording... There was also a TV/VCR switch that had to be toggled on some models... But ya really need a manual I believe the manual is at the below link...

How to hook-up my VCR to NTSC TV?

Zohar, You must remember that various regions in the world have different Broadcast systems. TVs and VCRs are manufactured for playback and Recording in different regions. But, while the JVC HR - J 437MS is a Multi System VCR as far as Playback is concerned, It has only a PAL Tuner. So , while you can watch NTSC Tapes, you cannot tune a NTSC Broadcast through its tuner, and watch on your TV. You will only get a B&W picture. To atleast view NTSC Tapes, use the Remote of the VCR, and set System to AUTO or NTSC. Again, there are 2 versions of NTSC - the 3.58 and the 4.43 ones. Certain regions of the US broadcast in NTSC 3.58, and some in NTSC 4.43. So select carefully, Similarly, bring up the TV menu, and select AUTO or NTSC for TV reception. Now you will be able to view American broadcasts in color.But I suggest you set System to AUTO, as then you can watch your earlier Tapes collection from Europe also. As for connections, it is fairly simple. I am uncertain if your VCR has a 21 pin euroconnector (SCART)but it is unlikely. You will be having Audio L and Audio R out ockets at the rear of the VCR, alongwith Video Out socket. Just connect suitable RCA cables from these OUT sockets to the Video and Audio IN (L) and Audio IN (R) siockets on the TV. select AV input, and you are ready. check it out. 99% it will be work out.
