Question, do you have sound? I would venture to think that the power hit would have taken out the power supply thus killing the whole unit. So lets deal with this as though the power hit may have killed part of the unit. The first thing I would do is to determine if the RF stages are bad. I would inject a know good signal into the Antenna in of the VCR this can be done by using a modulator and a analog video camera to create the video signal, better yet use a VA62A universal video analyzer (I know I say use this a lot, but it cuts down on so much of the guess work). After you inject the signal use your schematic to trace down the point where the video signal stops. If I where to take a guess at this I would say that the Video Processor is bad. This has happend to me on two occations troubleshoot a loss of video only to find out that the entire Video processing stage was in one chip and a power spike killed the unit and this processor. So you might have a bad video processor. Make sure you are using a schematic when working on this problem, because I thin that is what the issue is a bad video processor IC. I hope it is something like the Tuner module or the video detector, but I am getting the video processor feeling from this problem.

Picture gets fuzzy especially the writting on 2000 Sansui tv

This could be multiple things. If the fuzzy picture is on your regular cable channels and the tv is hooked up directly to the cable then it is a signal issue. Your cable signal is probably too low because it is either split too many times, a splitter went bad, a piece of cable went bad, you have RG-59 cable rather than the much better RG-6 cable. Another solution is if there is a vcr hooked up, the cable jack on the vcr could have gone bad, the vcr power could be on which will cause a fuzzy screen. If you have a vcr try to bypass it and hook directly to tv. If that fixes you problem then it may be the vcr or the wire from the vcr to the tv. If you have no vcr then I recommend buying a cable amplifier and hooking it up. This is a band-aid solution but it could work long term if it's just a matter of weak signal. If that does not fix your problem I would recommend calling a cable professional to evaluate your problem. Could be the line from the pole to your house or any of the wiring in your home.

VCR will not show picture or menu on TV after power outage.

Hate to say this, but when power outages occur, things like vcr's are the first thing to fry. But if you feel that the vcr is fine as far as powering up, then unplug it from the wall socket for 30 minutes or so, plug back in and see results.

You or someone may have press record and the set is in record mode. that way whatever time it's set for it will come on. Or you have to unplug to reset. Leave off for atleast 1hour then plug back in.

Jvc vcr

First try unplugging the unit for about 20 or 30 seconds, to do a reset on the logic circuitry. Beyond this, the rig has an internal electronic problem. The power supply circuitry would be where to look next. If you have a voltmeter and some tech savvy, check the output voltages. There should be a +5, +12-15, & a -40 volt or so. The +5volt line must be very close tolerance, within about .2 volt. This supplies the logic circuits, and if it is wrong, operation is compromised. If by chance voltages are off, such is likely caused by one or more bad electrolytic capacitors. Digi-Key Corp. has Panasonic FC series capacitors which I generally use for replacements. Mouser electronics is another source also. Perhaps another contributor has seen this specific problem and has a better diagnosis.
