Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I have a 13" TV/VCR combo and when playing back the tape there is a lot of snow. We have cleaned the player with the cleaning tape on the market, but this does not improve it. Thought it would be cehaper to buy one then to try and get it fixed, but stores no longer sell this type of TV. Thanks

THe video heads are clogged. The cleaning tapes are useless. This unit needs to be cleaned by a professional. You need direct access to the heads which means that the set must be dis-assembled. There is high voltage inside the set even when off and unplugged. Figure on $50 or so for a cleaning.

Barb..be sure you run a TV signal through the VCR first. And then a coaxial from the VCR to the TV. This is the easiest solution for now. And set the vcr to tv/video {channel your movie is on}hit record and hit tv/video and watch your tv for another movie!

My rca has no picture the screen has a snowy picture is if it was on the wrong channel through my cable box.


More information would help. What are you running the signal into the TV with? Coax? Separate video/audio? To test the set if you have a vcr hooked up or available to hook up, input it into the tuner input and play a tape. Set the tv to either channel 3 or 4 (whichever channel the output of the vcr is set for, this can be determined by checking the menu or a switch on the back if it is an older vcr). If your TV is ok you should be able to see the tape which is playing. If not, and you still have snow you probably need a new tuner in the set. Let me know if you need more help.

VCR Sound but no picture


If the picture is only "snow" then the problem is the head(s) on the spinning drum have become clogged with video tape emulsion which greatly affects the spinning video head(s) reducing the video level down to only noise. This usually will happen instantly and is caused by the particular tape you were watching. The head(s) can be cleaned with a lint free cotton cloth and some alcohol by wetting a portion of the cloth with the alcohol (not to much) and with your finger hold the cloth with slight pressure against the horizontal slightly slanted slot which is on the outside surface of the drum about half way down. While applying the slight pressure spin the top of the drum around counter clockwise. do this for about 15 seconds. then when you are sure the alcohol as evaporated from the drum turn it on and try to play a tape (not the one you were watching when the problem occurred) and if the picture is still just snow repeat the procedure but this time use a little more force on the cloth. Or find and use a special VHS head cleaning tape. The cleaning tape will reduce the life of the heads because it is abrasive in nature.

I hope this helps you!

Cheers

I can play DVD's but not VHS tapes. I hav checked all connections and several tapes to no avail. Thank you ! Ol' Fred


Hey Ol' Fred...
One of my good friends is an ol Fred so I felt compelled to stop in and help!
I'm not sure of your setup, but if you've got a combo DVD/VHS unit, make sure that you have out puts to the TV for Both parts separately... You can designate by accessing the TV's onscreen menu and setting up a separate source for DVD and one for VHS. I've found on my projection TV that it's best to use the Coax cable connections for the VHS to TV.
Then once it's setup with separate hookups to the Tv, you should have audio and video for VHS...

Is this a HiFi stereo vcr? When you cleaned the heads, did you only do the heads on the rotating cylinder or only the fixed tracking/audio heads between the cylinder and the pich roller?

Does a prerecorded tape ( not a self recorded from that machine play ok?

HiFi vcrs default to the audio head(s) on the tracking/audio head if the HiFi heads on the rotating cylinder are dirty or damaged.

If a prerecorded tap palys fine, then the erase head circuit has failed.

If sound is weak and warbles, worse on SLP than SP, a weak VCR power supply.

I broght a 32 Sharp T.V. 1080P (LC-32D62U)wroks fine. Attached is VCR(RCA) & DVD(GE) works fine except when I record on the VCR. Play back is just snow?


try channel Line 1 or Line 2 on your TV and or VCR... not channel "3" if  you're using "RCA cords".  Also, make sure your VCR and TV are "SETUP" to look for composite input's rather than coaxial.
good luck!
