Question about JVC HR-J692U S-VHS VCR

1 Answer

Vcr does not respond to tv/vcr button on remote

When a vhs tape is played, the vcr does not respond to the tv/vcr button being pushed on the remote, so I can not see what is playing on the tape.I know all the buttons on the remote work (I tested them on my other j692u unit). Is there something that could be checked on the inside of the machine?

Thanking you in advance for your assistance.

    The same condition just surfaced on my HR-J692U unit. All the remote buttons work except the tv/vcr button. This has never been an issue before. As a result, we cannot watch tapes or any other device that is connected to the TV through this VCR. Any other solutions would be appreciated.

You will not know from looking at the VCR if it is in VCR mode or TV mode. This is more likely a TV issue of whether the TV is monitoring the VCR or not. Make sure you have the TV selected so that it is monitoring the VCR.
That VCR/TV button has caused more confusion for the average person than anything else.
Hope Ya Fix It!

If the entire VHS is full then you can easily transfer the VHS contents to the DVD. The video will play while it is recording onto the DVD, but you don't have to have it hooked up to any TV for it to record. Now if you don't know how long the VHS content is that you want to record to DVD, then you will have to hook up the player to a TV so that you can press stop when you reach the end of the content you want recorded. At least this is true in the way that I use to transfer VHS to DVD:

1) Turn on the unit
2) Insert VHS tape
3) Insert DVD-+R or DVD-+ RW
4) Using remote, press VCR
5)Using remote, press play then pause the tape where you want to start recording.
6)Using remote, press DVD
7) Using the remote, press DUBBING. The VHS should start to play and the DVD should start recording

When using this method, don't hit the RECORD button!

I hope this helps!

I cannot get it to record a vhs tape to a dvd. The vcr will play tapes and the dvd player will play dvds. I need some one to walk me through what buttons to push to record.

You need a remote to setup the dvd record and vcr record. Then you have to do dvd initialization perhaps before you can dub from tape to dvd?

Recording Snow

If you hook your VCR up to the RCA jacks on the front of the DVD recorder, push 002 on the remote to use the front input jacks. (001 if you hook your VCR up to the rear input jacks)

Push record on the DVD recorder, and push Play on the VCR.
(Pg. 35 in the manual)

When you push play on the VCR, you should be able to see the movie being played on your TV. If you cannot, make sure your RCA cables are good and hooked up correctly.

That's all you have to do, so if it's not recording I would try to take the unit back for an exchange.
