Question about Daewoo DV-T8DN VHS VCR

2 Answers

No video playback

I have a Daewoo DV-T8DN that just stopped playing the video on the tapes in the middle of playing a movie. The sound seems to play just fine, but no picture. I have adjusted the tracking, but that didn't help. I have tried other tapes with the same result. I have also tried a different connection, but did not get better. Please help if you can. Thank you

Re: No video playback

I agree totally with Fixtips. Get a Wet type Cleaning Casette, and play it on the machine.

Re: No video playback

Maybe the video heads have become clogged. Try using a commercial head cleaning tape to solve the problem. I would recommend the one that uses the fluid.

My zenith 4head vcr works, then stops

When a VCR encounters a mechanical problem, the electronics will stop playback and shut it down. I suspect that fault has developed in the mechanism and that the tape becomes jammed. The only way to find out it to take off the top cover and watch what happens when the video tape is played.

I'm trying to transfer VHS film from my Daewoo VCR into my computer to copy it onto a DVD. HI FI flashes on the screen a couple of times and stays for about 10 seconds. How do I get rid of this?

It's an screen display for the Hi-Fi sound playing. However it should only come on when first starting. If it keeps popping up during playback it means that the Hi-Fi sound is dropping out then coming back on. This is often caused by poor tracking or the result of dirt on the video head. Clean the head and see if that solves the problem. If you are doing a lot of tapes keep cleaning it. Few video's have the option to remove on-screen displays. However if they do it will be on the menu somewhere.

My VCR is playing too fast

try recording on a blank tape and setting the tape speed to SP (standard play). you should also see options for (LP-long play) and SLP (super long play). I think your machine is stuck on SLP option. if no-go, look for a manual on the web.
