JVC HR S8000U S-VHS VCR switch from stereo to mono during playing.

I got a JVC HR S8000U S-VHS VCR used to make transfers from pre-recorded VHS to DVD-R, it is working well but with somes VHS the sound is switching from stereo to mono during playing.It play well on mono if i press the AUDIO MONITOR button.I try to adjust the tracking but most of the time it didn't help. I have this problem with somes VHS who play flawlessly on a cheaper Sony stereo VCR. I try many used VCR over the years and had similar experiences. Thanks for yours advices.

    I cleaned the heads using the tips from these pageshttp://www.hometheaterhifi.com/volume_5_... and experience the same problem. Sound using hi-fi tracks go out occasionally or switch to mono.

    Head cleaning didn't help, i remove the glazed from the pitch roller too.I have this problem with about 50% of my VHS used or new, maybe they are not recorded with the correct azimut or it's the limitation of this technology because i experience the same problem with others VCR. Adjusting the azimut seems a tricky task.

Here I suggest one thing, Just clean Stationary Audio/ Control head and see the results. This Audio/ Control head is situated just before Pinch-Roller at Capstan motor.

    Well, either the CTL signal is weak in playback or Video signal has distortion, you will get noisy Hi-Fi audio or VCR will switch to Mono Audio. Please observe the tape path to get better and nosie free (tracking error) video and see any error at CTL when tape is running on it. If tape has wrinkels on edge, it might not give correct Hi-Fi audio. Hope this info will help you to rectify the problem.

Usually you get this from dirty VHS heads, use an head cleaner VHS tape to clean it.

    If it switch to mono in the meaning that you have same sound on two channels and no stereo effects, then it depends on the heads. If cleaning did not fix you will need to adjust the azimuth, as the heads are not well positioned on tracks.
    Check also that some of the tractors are not pulling the tape up or down after a while.
    If one channel lose suddenly sound, instead it can be a problem in the amp board

I lost my manual i would like to know how would i record from vhs to dvd on my device on my jvc combo modle # hr-xvc25u


The HR-XVC25U is a DVD player and VCR recorder. Unfortunately, you can only copy a non-copy protected disc to VHS with the unit.

JVC has the manual for the hr-xvc25u on their product page: http://support.jvc.com/consumer/product.jsp?modelId=MODL027079&pathId=10&page=1&archive=true . The direct link to the manual is: http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/96/82970ien.pdf .

I wish that I had better news for you.

I would like simple steps to transfer VHS to DVD on my Toshiba DVR620KY. I want to copy with the unit alone. Would appreciate your help. Thanks.


Hi ,

Please follow the instructions below to record from VHS to DVD. You may not be able to record from some pre-recorded VHS cassettes due to copyight protection embedded into the recording. You should stick some tape over the copy-protection tab on cassettes prior to recording if the tab has been removed. On some cassettes, there may be a slide switch which needs to be moved to the record/rec position. All pre-recorded cassettes will have the copy-protection tab removed.

1. Switch on the TV and DVD/VCR and select the correct input on the TV for the player.
2. Set the player for the recording direction, i.e. VCR to DVD . . .

- Press the SETUP key on the Toshiba remote to open the on-screen menu
- Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight GENERAL SETTING then press ENTER
- Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight RECORDING then press ENTER
- Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight DUBBING MODE then press ENTER
- Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to highlight VCR > DVD then press ENTER
- Press the SETUP key again to close the on-screen menu

3. Press VCR to select VCR mode.
4. Insert the cassette you wish to record and fast-forward or rewind it to the position where you want to start recording from. Allow at least 5 seconds extra if not starting the recording from the beginning of a cassette.
5. Press PLAY then press PAUSE immediately.
6. Press DVD to select DVD mode
7. Insert a blank DVD
8. Press the REC MODE button to select the recording mode (XP / SP / LP, etc)
9. Press the DUBBING key to start the recording.

You can watch the VCR while it's recording. When you reach the point where you want the recording to end, press the STOP key. You do not need to repeat step 2 every time you record. The player will stay in VCR > DVD recording mode unless you change it.

Hopefully, you will now be able to record from VCR to DVD. If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Regards,
BElectric

VHS won't work


Had the same problem on my JVC vcr/dvd combo unit.
You need to turn off the timer function. I did this by making sure my remote was in the "VHS" mode...turn the swith from TV to the right (found on the remote in the upper left corner...an then hit the "vcr" button. Then point the remote at the VCR unit and hit the No. 4 button (timer turns off). Your unit should not have the red timer displayed and you should be able to play your tapes okay.

Hope this helps.
