VCR automatically goes into standby mode

I have a JVC HR-S9900U VCR and it automatically goes into standby mode after 3 second after I power it on. It stays in standby mode unless I power it up again, but it only stays on for 3 seconds. I have reset it multiple times; unplugged it, waited plugged it in... But it keeps on doing the same thing. Can anyone help?

If this unit shuts down after you turn it on, it is going into stanby because the microprocessor is not seeing the proper pulses from the mode switch. this could be due to an out of time mechanism because of a broken gear, bad mode switch, the loading basket is out of time or broken, or the capstain motor or the cylinlinder motor is not sending the PG and FG pulses to the microprocessor. These can also be due to a power supply voltage missing. You can check the voltages with a service manual and make sure they are not low. You will also need to get the mechanism manual and check the timing of the mechanism. Then check the mode switch you can get a manual from here http://www.servicemanuals.net/results.aspx?brand=15&model=HRS&type=SM&pos=281 Good Luck

Lost manual. Cannot get HR A591U JVC VCR program to record a future cable tv program. Seems I have tried everything but it does not record as I set up. It will record an existing show by pressing...

Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U
Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with
the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic
unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1
month.

EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day,
channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program
number 1 (Tape speed: EP).

When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the
TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the
TV.


• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off
automatically.
• You can program the timer recording while a regular
recording is in progress; the menu screens will not be
recorded.
• The timer recording will start at 20 seconds before the time
you predetermined.

Press MENU on the Remote.
Check the “TIMER REC SET”
option is selected, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select one of
the program lines, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select the
date, then press ENTER.

Set the start time, end time,
channel and tape speed as in
step 3.
NOTE: To record from external
source, press SET –/+
and set the channel to
"L". "L" will appear next
to CH 125 (or 69).

To enter other programs,
repeat step 2 through 4. Or,
press MENU twice to return
to the normal screen.

Press TIMER on the Remote.
The power will go off, the
TIMER REC indicator ( ) will
light and the VCR stands by
for recording.

To cancel a program:

Press the SET –/+ to select the
“TIMER REC SET” option in the
MENU. Then press SET –/+ to
select the unnecessary program,
and press CANCEL to cancel the
program.

Seinfeld DVD episodes won't play

It is probably not your VCR. If it is only the Seinfeld DVD's then the format that the production company wrote on those few episodes are incompatible with your vcr. I know I'm not solving your problem much, but don't go waste money on a brand new Vcr when not needed.

Unit won't turn on, goes into standby, flashing "auto"

The mechanism is not "shutting" when power is applied. This step is necessary for the unit to operate. Would suggest a complete belt replacement and cleaning....accordianman
