Question about Mitsubishi HS-U778 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Everything's in black & white

I'm attempting to transfer VHS tapes to DVD using a Mitsubishi HS-U778 I bought new but hadn't used before now. Even after adjusting the tracking, I can only get a clear black & white picture, never color. I've tried this on several commercial VHS tapes as well with the same result. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

TAPE KEEP SKIPING. CANNOT CONTROL TRACKING


Try cleaning the heads with Servisol Video 40. It's best to take the top cover off and give it a good clean. Use cotton buds, spray and wipe anywhere the tape comes into contact with. If that doesn't cure it you might have a worn video head.

Tracking


the video heads are probably dirty. it only takes one tape with one little spot of cola or juice or something on it to gum up the heads. a vcr cleaning tape may or may not clear it up. otherwise it needs to be cleaned by a proffessional, by hand, to clear it up.

VHS to DVD


I just bought at Best Buy the Samsung DVD Recorder & VCR. You can copy your VHS tapes right to DVD and or hook up an external source into the deck and copy them to DVD.  I find it working well but many of my tapes have tracking issues which is becoming a hurdle for myself.

Blue Screen


Could be dirty heads if you have a dry head cleaner tape try it (Maxell and RCA make ok tapes to try for ~:30-1min) ALSO:
There is a delay in the time you adjust the tracking and
the results being visable on the screen on this unit,
I suspect the tracking is adjusted off center. It takes some getting used to the way this deck's tracking adjustment works as the VHS video is upconverted to be captured onto the dvd and that is what you see, the upconverted video, fed out to your TV, analog or digital, this unit upconverts everthing to digital even analog channels, there needs to be a noise/blue screen off feature in the menu like my old hitachi VHS deck and my JVC ~$60 deck has now. On analog TV or old tapes it comes in handy for adjusting the tracking/antenna.

E2 error


Something might've been broken in the forced tape removal. VCR tape carriage (the cassette unit) assemblies are rather delicate, easily broken, in contrast to the units in early VCRs (from the '80s or early '90s). Use of force in tape removal... can break stuff, or perhaps get the gear timing fouled up. Take the top cover off, look for broken pieces of this assembly. If this assembly has gears on the right side, this obviously means it is gear driven. Timing is set by lining up marks on the gears, in most cases. Setting this might be tricky- service literature will tell you how to set this, and in what mode the marks line up.
