Question about JVC HR-S9500 S-VHS VCR

1 Answer

JVC 48WP55 Colour is a bit off and I cannot seem to get it right even though I have spent much time adjusting and re adjusting all the colour controls on the menu. I believe that I'm not getting the greens properly. Is there something dramatically that I'm missing.

    There must have been an initial misunderstanding on my part.  I don't have a vcr plugged into the TV.  I have a reciever, dvd player, and a satellite.  None of these components appear to be the cause b/c I have the same problem regardless of what device I'm using.  As well, I am using component cables to connenct everything.  I'm not sure if one of the instruments within the tv are out of align or not functioning to not see green in the picture.

    I did hook the dvd to another tv and it works fine.  The components are all plugged into the reciever and the reciever into the tv.  I tried playing around with all the different settings but it seems that I'm not getting the greens which puts off the rest of the picture.  Initially I thought it might have been because I have a 48" screen but I don't have HD cable but looking at sets that friends have it shouldn't make that much of a difference ( or should it?)

The 1st step is to determine if this is a problem with the vcr or your tv/monitor. Does the problem occur when the vcr is plugged into ANY tv or monitor?

Have you tried a different input? For example, if you now use the S video input on your TV, try the video input (RCA jacks), or the RF input (coax cable input).

Please reply in order to continue the troubleshooting process.

    Good to have that more clear :)
    It's sounding  like a TV problem, which is common to everything here.

    If I am correct in assuming that your multiple components are connected in various ways and to various inputs. If they are common in their input method, I will still suggest to take one of your components and connect it to a different type of input to see if you have the same problem.

    For the sake of deciding, take your DVD player and connect it through the S-video or regular video input as a test.

    I am trying to narrow this down. Let's isolate the TV to find out if it's a TV problem.

    Sounds like it's indeed a TV problem. You didnt say what type that is so is it a LCD or plasma? If you can, try a different input with one of your components to eliminate the possibility of the problem being with the input you're using.

    If the color problem remains, you have a TV problem. If it's on warranty, call for service. If not then it's looking like you need a technician to repair it. There may be an adjustment internally and if you've tried all the controls you have access to, thats all you can do.

    The HD cable wont make a difference in the color but if your TV and receiver are HDMI cable capable, that's the best way to hook it up.

    ** Please re-comment if the suggestion did not work for you, there may be several other possibilities.

Esp 7 printer is eating colour ink cartridges

Navigate to the Windows control panel and double click Printers and Faxes.

Right click on your printer and select properties.

Now find the colour options, set it to either normal or draft. That will ensure your printer uses less ink. Inkjet printers though are prone to really gulping down ink. A laser printer is a bit more economical, however not all laser printers are able to print in colour.

Try refilling your existing cartridges when they dry, it is cheaper but some-times it can give problems. The Micro processor within the cartridge needs to be told that the ink has been replaced.

Take Care!

I have a lg w2234s monitor and the colour seems to have gone funny, it has a green shadow where black should be. Its not my video card because i have tried a diffrent monitor and it works fine

Sounds like the colour balance is out of adjustment. There maybe adjustment controls accessible through holes in the rear of the monitor, if not, new monitor time.

I have done the color convergence and the picture still seems to be a bit off and now the whole screen seems to lean down on the right side.

Is the static colour bent also? It shouldn't be.
It takes hours some times top set these things up.
Cover one colour up with a piece of card whilst setting another to the donor colour. Usually Green stays static for this purpose.
Hope that helps.

My jvc tv is showing everything more green than it should be, the colour settings dont help, even with colour reduced to zero it still is green

A common problem with older sets that have weak tubes. The auto colour tracking runs out of tollerance and cannot cope anymore.
Not a lot can be done, maybe turn the green A1 down or cathode voltage up a bit, perhaps that will get a bit more life out of it.

Hi. The colour on my HP/Compaq 6820s laptop is a bit dull in comparison to my second extended Samsung monitor. I want to adjust the colour settings on the laptop, but all I can find on the keyboard is...

If you right hand mouse click on your desktop picture, a menu will become available. Click on Screen resolution and then Advanced settings. There will be options inside that window to allow you adjustment of the display.
Hope that helps.

Epson sx200 printer, wont print black ink only

Many printers especially Photo ones also use colour even when printing Black. so you do need to replace the spent colour cartridge.

If you only need to print in black get a B&W printer not a colour one.

Possible to print only black when colour cartridges are empty?

This printer does not let you print if even one of the cartidges is out of ink. I suggest you replace them and then in the printer properties change your settings to the way you want color to be spent.

RM computer-

be sure you downloaded the graphic driver for your computer. you can find it from the manufacturer website or if you know the model of your mainboard you can also find it from the mainboard manufacturer website. also, try changing your display settings by right click your desktop and choose properties then choose display adjust the screen resolution on higher pixel. but my best guess is you need the graphic driver of your computer.
