Unit won't turn on, goes into standby, flashing "auto"

Hello - unplugging my unit for several hours yielded no results. Can you offer any other suggestion to remedy the problem. The VCR will turn on only long enough to accept a cassette. Thanks.

The mechanism is not "shutting" when power is applied. This step is necessary for the unit to operate. Would suggest a complete belt replacement and cleaning....accordianman

TWO VCRs stopped working.


Yes, try to look inside (not in play) when you hit fast forward or rewind--are the reels turning too slow or jerking etc?

It indicates a problem with the transport part of the unit---bad drive idler or even a slipping or bad belt or belts if used.

Can't get my vcr off auto. It keeps flashing and vcr won't shut off. Can't get to the menu long enough to see how to shut it off


Try unplugging the VCR for 20 seconds and plugging it back in. It probably will still flash because the clock needs to be reset but you should be able to turn it on and off.

I HAVE A TOSHIBA VCR/DVD COMBINATION MACINE. THERE IS NO TRACKING BUTTON. iS THERE A WAY TO AUTOMATICALLY ADJUST THE TRACKING??


Usually VCRs do not offer specifically labelled tracking buttons as such, however they may incorporate tracking into their channel UP/DOWN buttons, both on the front of the main unit and/or remote. Some brands also offer V-LOCK (vertical lock or still image adjustment) (in pause mode during playback) to stabilise the image, reducing vertical jitter, which again can be adjusted as required using the same buttons as used for tracking. In most cases, pressing both CH UP and CH DOWN together while the tape is playing should centre track (revert back to auto tracking) the unit.

I am sure if your VCR has channel buttons on it, try pressing either one while a tape is playing. See if it affects the tracking at all. If it does, press both buttons together for 5 seconds or so, then release - auto/centre tracking takes over.

It costs nothing to try this, and it won't hurt your machine or your tapes.

No. Sound like the Switch mode power supply is or has failed, to repair this would involve replacing capacitor and or some componets, Many repair shops these days have discontinude repairing VCR's becuse most of the time you can replace the entire unit for the cost of repairing it

VCR automatically goes into standby mode


If this unit shuts down after you turn it on, it is going into stanby because the microprocessor is not seeing the proper pulses from the mode switch. this could be due to an out of time mechanism because of a broken gear, bad mode switch, the loading basket is out of time or broken, or the capstain motor or the cylinlinder motor is not sending the PG and FG pulses to the microprocessor. These can also be due to a power supply voltage missing. You can check the voltages with a service manual and make sure they are not low. You will also need to get the mechanism manual and check the timing of the mechanism. Then check the mode switch you can get a manual from here http://www.servicemanuals.net/results.aspx?brand=15&model=HRS&type=SM&pos=281 Good Luck

JVC HR-S9500U


OK, found the problem. Another website had the same question on the HR-S9600U, the 9500's replacement:

http://www.cippico.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?p=528&sid=ce3dfc944e4539181195720b836021f4

I checked my vcr, and, sure enough, there was a sort of clicking sound coming from the drum area immediately before the unit would go into "Auto" mode. I removed the complete drum assembly, and tore into the little gearbox, and found the two black, plastic gears with inside pinions that drive the metal screws to change the video head position had each cracked and were slipping on the shafts. This caused the gearbox to bind up.

Using a jeweler's screwdriver, I roughed up the metal shaft and the inside of the gears where they slip onto the shafts, and glued them on using a two-part epoxy. I then re-assembled it all, sorta setting the screws about two turns after their contact with the base of the upper drum. Now, upon power-up, the drum adjusting motor toggles one direction, then the other, and the unit stays on. Playback seems OK.

So, there you go. Yay me....

No Signal


Unplug the unit for 24 hours or more, you should be fine after that. No not just turn off, UNPLUG from the wall. Then reset the time and all the stuff should come bacK fine. If it does not then buy a new VCR because to fix this one would require a new microprocessor IC, and that would cost you double on what the VCR cost.
