Question about Televison & Video
I need to access the onscreen menu for an Hitachi SVHS recorder without the remote.
I have an Hitatchi SVHS recorder that I bought used. The remote was working fine but then stopped. After changing batteries and trying all universal remote codes with separate remote, the unit stopped receiving the IR signal.
I sort of know why. I was in the menu trying to figure setting out and on option 4 it changed from VCR 1 to VCR 2
After that the remote stopped working.
The manual I downloaded mentions that if the remote does not function the VCR number was changed in the menu. It states to go to the menu to change it. However this unit does not seem to have ANY menu buttons on the unit itself.
I have left the unit unplugged for 12 hours but that did not reset it.
SO if the remote was the only way to get the on screen to come up, then how can I reset back to VCR1?
Thanks for the input. But come one, you really saying they designed it so poorly that the only way to reset the menu settings is by a remote? If my remote is locked out, how would hitting the button I do not have (VCR1/VCR2) work? There is a hole in the front right that you can stick a little rod in and a it will turn the machine on and off, Why wouldn't this reset the machine settings?

Afraid only the original remote will fix this. All universals and aftermarket remotes will not have the function you need. try going here www.vancebaldwin.com and use there remote finder and see if they have the one you need
