Need Help With Sharp VCR

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My friend gave me a Sharp Sharp VC-H992U VCR for my mom since she's been wanting one for a while to play her old VHS tapes. There wasn't a remote included but I knew we had an old universal one laying around somewhere. Which we did & it supposedly can work with Sharp VCRs according to it's code list. Unfortunately that's all the documentation we have for the Emerson VT1322/VT1922 remote. I've tried looking online for a user manual on how to program this thing but no luck so far. I'm not dead set on getting it working though, so if any of you know of a good cheap remote that can work with this VCR she might just buy that. Local stores don't carry remotes that work with VCR's anymore or we'd just grab one of those. So yeah if y'all know where I can find the manual to this remote or just a new one all together that'd work we'd appreciate it, thanks.

Yeah, I was trying to find a manual for it but all of them are paywalled... for some reason.

I encountered the same, I guess because it's considered a vintage/legacy electronic device. They see it in the sense of, this is something richer people with nothing better to do use & not an old lady like my mom who has nothing but VHS tapes lol.

Honestly, I'd just get rid of that VCR and find one with a remote. The manual for the VCR isn't worth that kind of money.

Well I found some cheap universal remotes that claim to work with VCR's. I'm in progress finding out if they will specifically work with this model Sharp VCR. If not then yeah I'll just try thrift stores again for a VCR with remote.

Most of them are $40 on up, we can't spend that much for something that just might end up eating all her tapes or if the tapes simply fall apart from being so old. The $10 or less remotes I found are the most promising option yet, hopefully the sellers on Amazon get back to me with compatibility.

Thats true. I would also look into making backups of the tapes, or streaming the movies if a VCR with a remote is N/A

Well what would be ideal is to simply get digital copies of all her old shows. Andy Griffith, I Love Lucy, Leave It To Beaver, My 3 Sons & Gilligan's Island. Even if we could afford that though then we'd also need a new TV & a new stand to put it on. Currently an old CRT in a entertainment center with a square cutout for such so a flat, widescreen wouldn't fit in there. Not to mention she absolutely refuses to have a TV more than 30", so we'd need to pay more for a smaller one that's of lesser quality because not many good brands make em that small.

I would just go on some "less than ideal sites" and download them all to DVDs and run them off a combo VCR

How much space do you think that'd take up? I only have 90 something GB free on my solitary SSD

Most of those old shows are in shit quality like 360p

A DVD is 4 gigs ish, so just delete all the files after each burn i guess

Thanks, I might do that we'll see.
