Sharp VC-A582 I need a little help adjusting the tracking on my VCR, model Sharp VC-A582. I just acquired this unit and did successfully watch one tape for hours, then must have touch a wrong button by mistake. Have tried unsuccessfully to use the controller, ie. tape speed/DPSS buttons -- but i can't figure it out. I don't have manual; searched online but didn't find my model. Please help me in whatever way you can. thank you. Tom [email protected]

I couldn't find anything on your VCR either. But from personal experience I know that a lot of manufacturers use the channel up/down buttons on the face of the VCR as tracking controls while a tape is running.

My suggestion is to start a tape and then press the channel up or down button on the frnt of the VCR for a few seconds and see if it adjusts the tracking.

Hope this helps you out.

Why does my vcr keep blowing fuses?

Always in the power supply section. Anything with a heat sink on it. Transformers, diodes all the usual suspects.
You have answered the first part of your question yourself - a short circuited device. Ohm meters are good for looking for them. The needle will act like you have touched the probes together. Watch out for capacitors that could store a high charge though. Most repair people will replace the big capacitors anyway as they are troublemakers, even if they are not the cause of the fault.

Tracking is set by pressing + and - on "tracking" or possibly "volume" or "channel" repeatedly.

I need watch my vcr tape on vc a556

Most likely you will need a scan converter to change your signal from a Video to a VGA. The signals are mismatched.

I still need the owner's manual for the Sharp VC-A41OU VCR. If it can be downloaded--will they say how many sheets of paper will be needed, or can it be downloaded into a folder? I am new on a computer and...

Right here :

Says it's free to download, although it may end up costing a little bit, not too sure.

Whirlpool Side by Side American style Fridge Freezer too hot and too cold! I have model S20D FSS10-A/D Service number 8586 161 15000 Side By side FF - and after replacing many components on the rear board 13 years ago it has been running well. However.... with a new fault I am hoping that the symptoms may allow someone to point me in the right direction. Not having a circuit diagram has been a hindrance. Over last few years the front panel inside in the fridge in my model has been developing a display fault - it started with the LED display winking out briefly about twice a second. The mark/space of time for the 'winking out' changed slowly to 50% on 50% off twice a second to eventually become just flashing on briefly twice a second and finally off all the time. However, the default settings/functioning of the FF has been working fine so didn't need to use the panel. However, can't read any fault codes that might be there I don't think that the buttons are doing anything on the panel. It has 15v supply but I don't know what supply voltage from the rear PCB should be. Then... A few weeks ago the house RCD tripped once and the fridge bulb had blown ********* stain on bulb interior and Relay RL3 was chattering randomly - I took the board out and noticed a fried circuit track where it looped thinly either side of component hole that was unused. I soldered in a bridge over the gap. Restarted the FF. From then the freezer cools to -32c and warms up to -2c and down to -32 etc.. The fridge varies in temp but does go as low as 0c and high as +9c. Alongside this, when the compressor is not running we can heard a ticking noise and identified that the compressor fan was turning slowly about ?100 rpm There's no ice build up, the freezer to fridge air louvres are opening and closing when you switch the FF on, and do seem to open and close at different times. The evapourator fan seems fine as does the compressor fan, the bottom of the fridge is dust free and the rear panels are all on to allow proper cooling of the condensor motor. I pulled the board again, checked all the capacitors I have a slightly different board to many and all the capacitors I had used from one brand have failed again. I took all the caps out and measured them. C6, C16 should have been 0.68uF and were in the order of a few nF C14, 26, 27,28 should have been 0.1uF and were 0,.6nF, 2nF, 10nF and 38nF respectively. All other film and electrolytic capacitors were within tolerance. I replaced all the faulty caps thinking that I had found the display problem because you had told me in the past that C6 and C16 relate to the front panel and the cooling issues and fan issues but NONE had been cured :- I checked the continuity to the front panel of all connectiions and they're fine. Also checked the 2 electrolytics on the front board. So I am at a bit of a loss. I have checked the zener diodes in situ and all have about 6v forward voltage drop I cannot find a replacement board due to different connectors on my unit - so unless I can fix we will have to fork out for a new FF :-
