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.

Re: vcr does not respond to tv/vcr button on remote

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!

I have the remote the date etc. programmed OK but how do I set up the actual recorder with undefined

Panasonic are very good at having free PDF copies of user manuals. However if you just want to playback old tapes then all you need do is connect the vcr to a TV and press play. You might need to adjust the tracking using the controls on the remote. But the picture should play. If you see snow on the screen, but can hear sound, then the tape heads will need to be cleaned. You can get a VCR cleaning tape for that.

JVC HR-S9500 S-VHS VCR. all functions work except the eject on the vcr. there is no eject on the plays, ff, rew, stops etc. I can't get the tape out.

the eject button is a plastic piece that turns and pushes down on the board and is more then likely broken open the vcr take off the front face plate and check the button, it will propaply fall out. you can use super glue and glue the button back in place

My emerson EWV603 vcr. When I turn it on or when I insert a videocasette, the screen is blue. How do I get to the menu stuff so that I can program my vcr?

Sounds like your VCR & TV are on different channels.
The VCR's ouput is channel 3 or 4. Try turning your TV to either channel and see if you get a picture. OR try playing the tape and after 2 or 3 seconds, push the play button again for a few seconds to change the VCR's ouput channel.
