Question about JVC SR-VS20 Mini DV/S-VHS VCR
I've had this VCR for a few years and it's always work great. Recently I changed from 12 Bit Mode to 16 bit Mode and while in this menu I went into the Output Settings mode, and when I clicked on "Output 1", I must have changed it from "Auto" to something else because the screen on my Sony NTSC monitor went static, and I can no longer access my Program button or Menu button on my remote, They are both non-responsive. All other buttons seems to responded fine. Please advise.
Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. Check it by pressing all the keys. You can detect the presence of infra-red emission from the remote control, using a cell-phone camera. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. In some cases, the remote control might need to clean.

SOURCE: Can't see menu to programme VCR
Try unpluging the unit from the wall for about 5 minutes then plug back in and turn it on,this will reset the brain and go back to normal.

Zohar, You must remember that various regions in the world have different Broadcast systems. TVs and VCRs are manufactured for playback and Recording in different regions. But, while the JVC HR - J 437MS is a Multi System VCR as far as Playback is concerned, It has only a PAL Tuner. So , while you can watch NTSC Tapes, you cannot tune a NTSC Broadcast through its tuner, and watch on your TV. You will only get a B&W picture. To atleast view NTSC Tapes, use the Remote of the VCR, and set System to AUTO or NTSC. Again, there are 2 versions of NTSC - the 3.58 and the 4.43 ones. Certain regions of the US broadcast in NTSC 3.58, and some in NTSC 4.43. So select carefully, Similarly, bring up the TV menu, and select AUTO or NTSC for TV reception. Now you will be able to view American broadcasts in color.But I suggest you set System to AUTO, as then you can watch your earlier Tapes collection from Europe also. As for connections, it is fairly simple. I am uncertain if your VCR has a 21 pin euroconnector (SCART)but it is unlikely. You will be having Audio L and Audio R out ockets at the rear of the VCR, alongwith Video Out socket. Just connect suitable RCA cables from these OUT sockets to the Video and Audio IN (L) and Audio IN (R) siockets on the TV. select AV input, and you are ready. check it out. 99% it will be work out.

You will not know from looking at the VCR if it is in VCR mode or TV
mode. This is more likely a TV issue of whether the TV is
monitoring the VCR or not. Make sure you have the TV selected so
that it is monitoring the VCR.
That VCR/TV button has caused more confusion for the average person than anything else.
Hope Ya Fix It!
