If you're experiencing problems with a Funai-manufactured VCR, before dropping it off at a service centre or discarding it, try a few troubleshooting measures to resolve the issues yourself.
Problems with a Funai VCR can cover a wide range of issues, including power problems, poor video quality, recording problems or remote control problems..
For power problems, check the VCR's power cord to make sure it's plugged in properly. Press the "Power" button on the device itself instead of from the remote control to see if the VCR turns on. For video problems, check your cable connections. Verify that everything is hooked up properly and that there are no damaged or loose cables. Make sure the TV is set to the proper broadcast channel and video input channel. Check the channel switch on the back of the Funai VCR to verify that it is set properly. If you're able to hear sound from tape playback but not see the video, use a VCR cleaning tape to clean the VCR head. If you're unable to record to a tape, check to make certain that the safety tab on the cassette is intact. For remote control problems, put fresh batteries in the remote and make sure they are inserted using the proper orientation. Make sure there is nothing blocking the IR sensor on the VCR unit.
If all else fails, call 800-968-3429 to locate the nearest Funia Authorized Service Center.
