Changing the Recording Speed without manual or remote

I just want to know how to change the recording speed from SP without a remote. I do not have the remote or the manual. I bought it used and cannot figure out how to change the speeds. Also after playing a tape and the tape stops, the sound is really static. Any help would be greatly appreciated. How do I fix the sound problem and how do I change the recording speed.

Thank You very much.

Re: Changing the Recording Speed without manual or remote

When you are programing the shows and you highlight the tape speed use your channel up and down button to change tape speed.

Are you asking how to change the record speed to extended play? This is usually given as a choice when programming a recording. You use your remote to scroll through various options on the input screen and you should find that you can choose between sp/ep/lp (standard, extended and long play)

Mitsubishi U54 VCR Recording Speed

If you have a remote, there should be a button labeled "SP/EP" or "RECORDING SPEED." Otherwise, I might try looking in the VCR's main menu.

Changing from sp to ep

it will automatically play at the speed the tape was recorded at. but if you want to change record speeds here's how: you should be able to access menu functions from the front of the vcr, if so, put a tape to be recorded into the unit and then set the timer for a couple of minutes.while you are on the timer menu it will ask you for recording speed. set the timer record speed to ep and let it record for two minutes and let it record for the full time untill it stops recording. the record speed will automatically change settings to whatever you used last on timer record.

Change recording speed

The only solution to this problem is to buy a new remote from the manufacturer. Aftermarket remotes that I have looked at: RCA, PHILLIPS, SONY, etc do not have a speed select button for the VCR. (which IMHO is stupid) Come on aftermarket people- it cant be that hard to program a speed select button!
