    8287 suggestion fit the bill. I used the Phillips Wet Head Cleaner. I had to repeat the instructions about 5 times before the tracking came back. I put 3 drop in each time I put it in the VCR. After each time I put the TAPE back in and it was clearer. After the 4th Time I could make out what was on the VIDEO and the 5th time it was crystal clear.



    $6.00 fix. Thanks 8287.

Try a video head cleaner, usually the wet-type cleaners are better since the dont scratch against the VCR's heads.

Blank VHS tapes work; Movie VHS tapes don't


Hello statman_4

I have an important question; Are you watching a VHS tape you recorded of another VHS movie? In other words did You rent Ben Hur and record it and then tried to watch the recording? If you did that's your problem. VCRs in the late 1990's (1997-1999) began to employ MacroVision circuitry in all VCRs, and DTR. MacroVision Circuitry makes the VCR record tapes with MacroVision in such a way that the horizontal and vertical sync pulses are not at the proper amplitude, and the AGC (Automatic Gain Control) is tricked into over compensating thus creating the scrambled picture. There is a way around this. You need to buy a video stabilizer SIMA makes such devices and some other companies do to. You feed the signal from your VCR into the unit and it corrects the video image by readjusting the video signal.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Movie tapes have snow but not home video tapes can i fix it my self


I assume you have had this player a while and I assume that all the programs that work without snow are ones that you recorded using that VCR to do it. Right?

If so, it is a compatibility issue where the last time you had it fixed, the repair guy did not check for VCR to VCR compatibility. I had a shop for 15 years and this is common.

Do you have a Tracking control? try adjusting that. It is either a physical control or part of the menu, depending on that specific model.

Last...last is to open the unit and you must be very very careful. Put in a tape that is from another player that plays snow and identify the shinny rotating head if you can physically see it. It sits at an angle and the RCA is typically in the back middle, about an inch in a half in diameter. While playing press your finger very very lightly in the middle of the shinny exposed video tape for like 4-10 seconds and maybe the snow will go away.

Your video head may be worn or dirty. Do not attempt to clean the heads the are verrrry delicate.

3. Try finding an old VCR cleaning tape. It does the same thing as your finger.

if it was a metallic object, he has more than likely shorted something out inside the tv.. If you can open the tv, remove the object and check (and probably replace) the fuse (it will be right by where the cord goes into the tv...) then you MAY get lucky and it may work again.

VCR acting strange with audio and playing


It sounds like the audio control head is at fault.
If all prerecorded tapes (movies) play with audio level jumping up and down, is is likely that the audio head is dirty. The audio head in the VCR looks very similar to a head of an old audio cassette player.
First, try to clean the audio head by running a VHS head cleanning tape. The cleanning tape will usually clean the path of all tape mechanisms..

Good Luck
