Re: emerson vcr #vcr755

Have you tryed to clean the ace head??? The ace head means audio-control-erase. and is on the right side of the mechanism. this head looks like a big cassette type head and is statioary. This head can be cleaned just like an 8-track{remember those??}or cassette head by applying rubbing alcohol to a q-tip and clean the head from top to bottom. this head also may need cleaning if your tapes seem to speed up and slow down for no reason and at random. Thats because the lower part of the head is the control head and that gives the machine pulses to tell the machine what speed the tape is recorded in then the capstain motor has an fg sensor(freqency generator} and they all go thru a comparitor and the sum of both pulses gives the machine the proper speed setting. Hope this was laid out in understandable english. Good Luck

There is something wrong with the tape running. It will be due to the mechanism itsef. Chang all the belts of the mechanism. The belts can be get in kit form, in most of the electronic spare part shops at your town, just give them the molde number of your VCR. They will give it to you the belt kit. OK.

What is the purpose of the front audio/video jacks on an Emerson Vcr Ev818. My cord is too short to reach the jacks on the back of the Sharp tv. Can I record on the vcr using those front jacks on both...

The front jacks on all VCR's are for video cameras etc. Generally VCR's have one or two scart sockets on the back for connection to TV's. If only one, or you haven't enough scarts on the back of your TV, I suggest you get a switching box like the one in the picture below (found on Amazon). It will solve any connection problems and recording issues.
