Philips DVP 3200V/37

Hi,
This unit won't play VHS tapes without a bunch of static...The tapes play perfectly on another unit in our basement. We have just cleaned the head with a tape cleaner, to no avail... Any ideas?

Hey there, Here are some ideas; I would clean it one more time to make sure that its nice and clean try playing a different tape on your VCR and check the channel on your VCR, and thats if you are using a channel 3 or 4 on your VCR, concur with each other. Meaning if you have Channel 3 on your TV you should have Channel 3 on your VCR. Thats a really old method. If you use a coxial cable unplug it and replug it in again sometimes there is no contact at one of the ends therefore disconnecting or connecting it again would help. Just see if that works and usually that was the problem when i use to have problems with my VCR. Let me know if that works out for you alright.

I have a Mitsubishi HS-U448 VCR. It plays my VHS tapes fine, but I can't get a blue screen when I turn it on. When I press 'play', the movie looks great. Once I hit 'stop', it'


It sounds like it is set to a TV station and since all the analogue stations have now gone you will only get static. Without a remote you wan't be able to switch it. I suggest you either shop around for a replacement (try Curry's partmaster) or use a universal one.

Error Message on display


The alarm message usually means that the tape didn't load properly.  Instead of trying to play the tape and destroy it, the unit will just stop.  A common problem is that the tape heads don't spin.  Without a cushion of air between the heads and the tape, the tape will get ruined.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this is a repair that needs to be done by a tech.  The positions of the tape and heads are very touchy and have to be perfect.  I would try to find a repair center that can give you a good estimate and then determine for yourself if repairing the unit is cost effective.


Hope this helps :)

Toshiba dvr670ku - vhs tape won't play, shuts recorder off


look to see if tape will fully load and if FF or REWIND work, if not a transport problem, drive mechanism not moving the tape, unit will sense this and shut unit off----even a problem in the loading mechanism for the VHS tape not loading the tape all the way will do the same thing.

TV is on channel. VHS player has tape for playback loaded. Player is on but when PLAY is pressed 5 seconds later it turns off by itself. Model number is DVP3200V/37. Can anyone help, please.


Dirty magnetic head. Run a commercial tape head cleaner through it. You can get one at the box stores. Also, put your tape in a tape rewinder and rewind and fast forward the tape for about 30 seconds. Sometimes the tape ribbon gets wound too tight or is loose. If these fail, then you have to open the unit up and clean the magnetic head manually with some isopropyl alcohol and cotton q-tips. Also, look for capacitors on the power inboard chip that look burned and replace them.

No sound Problem - Philips VR550 VHS VCR


If your pre-recorded tapes also play without sound, then check the scart lead is in straight.

If not, then it's more likely to be a dirty audio head.

Try a VHS head cleaner tape.

The VHS cleaning cassette possibly deposited fiber in the heads in the drum. You may need to open the cabin and examine the heads and the mechanism for foreign matterial.
