If you can hear sound thru TV tuner or thru the Audio - video inputs, in all probability it is a case of Dirty Video heads. Get yourself a good 'Wet type' Head cleaning Tape, and clean the Video heads. It should do the trick!

Cannot view tapes. Picture fuzzy, interference lines on screen.

Well I have heard that sometimes the tape inside of the videocastettes that show the pictures on the screen wears out over time periods and from rewinding and fastforwarding so many times or the old age and useage so you could get the video castette tapes fixed but its not worth it now you should buy a DVD player because they are better and have less problems and most VHS tapes are on DVD too. Or check to see if any other devices are on at the same time.

Why won't older Sanyo VCR playback VHS tape on new HD-LCD TV?

The problem is not with your TV. I have had this problem as well and the older the VCR gets the harder it is for it to turn the tape. Does your VCR react the same way with other tapes? Try Fastforwarding the tape about halfway and then test it again.

No video out

Hi, All I get is a blue screen.  It does accept the tape, and I do get normal audio from the tape. I believe that I do get the words "play"  "fast", etc..., displayed on the t.v. screen  So I guess you could say there is that for a video signal - otherwise I would just get a static screen - I just get no video signal from the tape. Not sure what kind of soda (i.e. coke, pepsi, etc). Thanks again, Frank

I don't recognize your first problem.  The "light to dark" issue I believe is intentionally engineered (mine does it too); it prevents recording DVDs on to tape.  Try running the DVD player directly to the TV.  Radio Shack used to have a box that would correct this issue too, you might check there.

one way is to connect an antenna to INPUT of VHS, place a tape, press play, STOP and switch VCR\TV switch to TV. u should be able to change the channels from the VHS. If that don't work, u may have switch problems.
If this works, tell the
P.S. The 'blue screen' means that you don't have a signal to the antenna inpur\TV protion of VHS.

Poor playback

Because the cable signal is OK, this eliminates the tuner as your problem and leaves the power supply which is a common problem. It is a switch mode type which often have trouble maintaining control of its output voltages and produce trouble downstream in the video circuitry. Either the power supply is failing which can be wholesale replaced for about a $150, or something somewhere else is failing and loading down the supply causing it to overwork. Usually in this case, you can hear a whine noise if you listen close.

Refering to my last post

Screen will be blue. It Is known as video mute What happens when you play a cassette now? If you are still getting sound, and no picture, then the video heads are dirty. Get a good Wet Type Cleaning cassete and clean the Video heads. Do 2-3 runs of the tape, and check if picture is now visible.
