I stripped the tape mechanism and remover the recording (drum) head and underneath was a small piece of plastic - looked like it was from a tape housing. after removing plastic bit and reassembling camera it has been perfect ever since (now 3 years

    Here
    are some common JVC Error codes:



    E01

    Tape load / unload time-out



    Generally it's a mechanical
    problem, with defective gears in the tape loading mechanism.
    You can expect to pay major labor for this type of repair.
    Parts are nominal.


    E02 Supply reel error


    E03 Take-up error




    Most common in the Mini-DV models. This problem
    can be defective reel tables, and it can also be a defective
    rotary encoder. You can expect to pay
    intermediate to major labor for this type of repair. Parts
    are nominal.


    E04 Cylinder error


    Very common. Problem is due to
    cold solder on the cylinder drive PC board. Re-flowing the
    solder solves this problem. Labor is typically intermediate,
    to repair this problem.


    E06 Capstan error


    ·Generally either a defective
    capstan motor, or cold solder connections. Since the soldering
    process is surface mount technology, both tedious and time
    consuming, labor can be intermediate to major.


    No Picture in Camera mode (All models)




    Defective CCD imager. The CCD imager is the device that 'sees',

    directly behind the lens. Labor is minor to intermediate,

    model dependent.

I have a Toshiba dvr 7 vcr dvd recorder. It occasionally gives an error message 85 when I am trying to copy a VHS tape to DVD. What does this mean and is there a way around it?


Commercial movie VHS tapes have copyright protection added to the tape. There is hardware in the recorder (mandated by law) that will sense this signal and not allow copying of these tapes to another tape or any other media. There are hackers that have built devices and modified equipment to circumvent this, but you risk legal action if caught.

Will not dub from VHS to DVD. I am getting an error message that says I have made a change with my video source.


You didn't give us a model number, always include this since it can have a big influence on the value of any response.
Missing this, we have to assume that you have a DVD player "Toshiba DVD Players"
This is how your message is labeled.
If this is the case, you never will record a DVD, only to VHS tapes.

Record Commercial Tape to DVR for personal use


Put tape in. Make sure the plastic tap isn't broke on front of vhs tape, if so, put tape over it.
Put tape and vhs in player, turn vcr channel to 04 I believe. Then hit the copy button. Otherwise put on dvd/ hit copy button

Recording from vhs to dvd


Direct copy VCR to DVD:
- Insert VHS tape you want to copy
- Insert a recordable DVD disc
- Press DVD copy button on front panel or remote control (to DVD).
- To stop recording press the stop button.

IMPORTANT: If attempting to copy copyrighted material the Samsung DVD-VR320 will detect the encoding and will not allow the copy to be made.

Backup my vhs tapes


First hook up the VR357 to the TV with any cable ..
Then put a VCR tape into the VHS player.. get the tape to where you want to start the recording and press stop.
Then put a blank DVD in (-r or -rw is the best)
Then press VCR on the remote
Then press TO DVD on remote
you will see the word COPY come up on the DVD player and the VHS tape will start to play.
When you are done just press stop twice. and you will get a message that says "updating information to disk"

Sylvania SRDV495 DVD-VHS


I have the same unit, a SRDv495 and have also been having
a bad time getting dvd's that will work in my machine. I also
bought mine from Sears. I have found one that works every
time and that is a MAXWELL DVD-RW. The trick I think is
the speed of the DVD, so you need to use the ones that have
Up to Max 2X, 4.7 GBgo, 2 Hrs. I find these work every time.
Hope this helps.
