20 Most Recent Emerson EWV601B VCR Questions & Answers

You have got yourself into a tricky mess there. The mechanism was set up in a certain way. When you extracted the tape, it sent the mechanism into the wrong position. There is also a switch called a mode switch that is linked to the mechanism and the electronics of the video. This switch tells the electronics what mode the video is in - IE: fast forward etc. This is now out of position and the whole mechanism needs to be set up in the correct position, assuming there is no faults, and so does the mode switch.
However the bad news is that unless you have the service manual you have little chance of setting it up right. Most video's for example are NOT set up in the eject position for a start, so unless you have the instructions, you will never get it to work right.

If you have the instruction book that came with your remote you may find your VCR listed in it. If not, the book should give you the procedure to put the remote in the "search mode" which should help you make it operate the VCR.

The applicable code would be found in a compatible remote control.

Try to unplug everything from the TV. Yes, wires and everything. Plug it back and turn back on. Also make sure that you are plugging it to the correct input and are fitted well.

Universal remote is no good for accessing menus and you need an original replacement or a compatible remote. I bought a compatible from Amazon or ebay for not much more than a universal.

Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. It has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. One among it has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.
