20 Most Recent Mitsubishi HS-U448 VCR Questions & Answers

I had this problem with this specific machine. These answers have all been general to any VCR. The Mitsubishi HS-U448 has its motor underneath the machine. You don't have to remove the top cover at all. Just remove the bottom plate and spin the motor (the correct direction) to completely eject the tape.

It sounds like it is set to a TV station and since all the analogue stations have now gone you will only get static. Without a remote you wan't be able to switch it. I suggest you either shop around for a replacement (try Curry's partmaster) or use a universal one.

The manual is available from the Mitsubishi Support site: http://support.mitsubishi-tv.com/documents/HS-U448 . The direct link to the manual is http://support.mitsubishi-tv.com/files/oguide/HS-U448.pdf .

The original remote is no longer available. However, remotes.com has a substitute remote: http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=HS-U448&uuid=13065385902780 .

A number of universal remotes will probably also work. The codes will be in any remote that still controls a VCR if the remote was programmed after the HS-U448 was released.

I hope this helps.

Can't be done without a remote. Most universal remotes won't change the input to L1 or L2. Logitech Harmony One works, though. It's not cheap, unfortunately.

Take a scart cable & connect it from the VCR to AV1 on the DVD recorder. Then when you want to record from the VCR select either AV1 /EXT.1/ AUX1 on the DVD recorder as your choice of input source.It depends on the make of your DVD as to determine how the manufacturer has named this inout.

tracking is due to rubber belts and tires being worn, look inside and replace. PRB BELTS.com google it. this can be a tricky problem if you haven't done it before.

Hi Jaco, Have you fed in your Antenna / cable into the Rear of the VCR? And if your VCR has a Input selection switch, just check input to Tuner. You will get Blue screen if input selction is not Tuner but Camera / External source. If this does not solve your problem, then there is no Input selection happening.

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size

The main problem is that you have an antique dinosaur that is well past its sell by date.

Here is an answer, but the age is the problem. An 86" Ultra HD 4K flat screen set would greatly improve your viewing enjoyment, though not the effect on your pocket!
