20 Most Recent Samsung VR3607 VHS VCR Questions & Answers

There is a problem with the loading basket, or the VHS tape is stuck inside and the eject mechanism can not cycle the tape out. To check this, open the lid so you can see the tape, if it is wrapped around the head and roller, hit the eject button to see if the tape is being pulled or jammed, cut the tape with scissors to free it up to see if it will pop out. If the tape is okay, it means you have a faulty loading basket.

following is pasted from SV-7000W manual: 1 To lock the VCR, hold down the P/STILL (II) button for approximately five seconds. Result: The lock indicator (LOCK) is displayed. If a cassette is in the VCR when you lock it, the cassette will first be ejected. 2 To unlock the VCR, hold down the P/STILL (II) button again for approximately five seconds. Result: The lock indicator (LOCK) is no longer displayed. If that fails, try the same thing using the play/stop button. Cheers

Do you have your operation manual? It will tell you how to set up a timed recording. Recording options are set via the remote. Look for an option as "Scheduled recording" or similiar. Date, start & end time, channel, recording speed are all set. If you are missing your manual do a google search with your model number. A quick look at the Samsung website was not fruitful.

The power light should be off when the TV is on.

If you are sure the TV is the issue and not the remote then yes changing the board is the only option.

Sounds like either corrupted firmware or something went bang in a memory or controller chip, you could try a factory reset if you can find your model number on the samsung website. If you haven't tried this yet: unplug the power plug to the TV for about 10 minutes and then try again. Sometimes this will allow the caps to drain and clear any temporary faults.
Usually a factory reset involves holding buttons on the remote while pressing the power button etc. You should be able to find instructions on how to do this with your model number. Samsung generally is pretty good about this stuff being available.

Try it, what is the worst that can happen. :>D You just blow every component and IC in the set. You can't use it in SA anyway as it is.

It may be that the board itself can take 250 volts as far as track separation on the board is concerned, but the components on the board are 110 only.

Here is a replacement board.


This says it does work on either voltage


and so does this

A modern tv is as much computer as tv and isn't electronically robust having much delicate circuitry that is vulnerable to surges, spikes or transients.

A direct lightning strike isn't necessary to cause damage and lightning activity in the area is all that is necessary. A surge protector could provide some protection but in reality disconnecting the tv from the mains and the antenna is the best protection.
In the early days of radio when circuits were more robust, an external antenna and a good ground was often necessary for good signal reception, there would be a knife switch provided to disconnect the antenna and ground it whenever there was thunder around - a worthwhile precaution that unfortunately isn't practical today.

A tv that has failed during an electrical storm might be economically repairable or might not - only the repair guy could tell you this. My limited experience with this tells me although such a tv can be fixed it never seems to achieve the same quality.

Check and see if you have power going to the fan, before replacing the fan. It could be a power board problem.

If you had sound, the power board was fine. The 'let's try changing this' method of television repair never works. You need the test equipment and knowledge at component level. Take it to an engineer, it is much cheaper.

That indicates a problem with the power supply. If your TV is under warranty, I suggest to contact the manufacturer for a repair or replacement.
