Question about Emerson EWV603 VHS VCR

1 Answer

VCR will not work

We had a brownout over the summer and ever since then we can't seem to get our Emerson EWV603 VCR to power up any more. I was wondering if perhaps it was a power supply issue or if it just needed reset somehow? Our television needed unplugged overnight and it started working again just fine. Is it a similar issue or is our VCR just toast?

If you have tryed this with your VCR then Im guessing that there is a power supply issue. In most cases, a VCR would not be worth the repair or the diagnostic fee to inform you on how much the vcr will cost to repair. If you really want to playback VCR format buy a new one with a built in DVD recorder, buy some inexpensive DVD blanks, and put those Video tape onto the DVD format and they will never ever fade.

I have recently moved to another state and need to change my channel that receives signals from 4 to 3. how do i do that? thanks.

My Emerson EWV603 VCR came up on channel 3.
My manual says to put a tape in, push play at the VCR.
After 2 or 3 seconds, push play again AT THE VCR. This
changed my default channel to 4. Maybe you can do the
same to go from 4 to 3.

My emerson EWV603 vcr. When I turn it on or when I insert a videocasette, the screen is blue. How do I get to the menu stuff so that I can program my vcr?

Sounds like your VCR & TV are on different channels.
The VCR's ouput is channel 3 or 4. Try turning your TV to either channel and see if you get a picture. OR try playing the tape and after 2 or 3 seconds, push the play button again for a few seconds to change the VCR's ouput channel.

Change TV viewing channel to 3 or 4. If this works your VCR's output channel got changed during storm. If this is the case, review previous answers to prblems with this VCR.

Most VCRs of the last 10+ years are programmed via the remote box. If you have the matching remote, there should be a button which brings up an on-screen menu where you can select various functions such as setting the time/date, tape speed, channel programming, and the unattended recording you desire. Take a look here for an online manual:
