My vcr tapes play too fast

That's it. I just got it in the mail. The DVD plays OK, but the VCR plays at about twice the correct speed.

If I remember correctly, VCR players had three speed settings. SP-short play, LP-Long play, and SLP- Super long play. The vcr is supposed to be able to tell what speed the tape was recorded at, thus playing it back at the correct speed. If your unit has lost the ability to sense the speed the tape was recorded then you will have to set the speed manually, if possible. Other than that I would have to say it's time to get a new vcr.

SOURCE: VCR tape loads and runs about 5-10 sec; then ejects

you need to clean the vcr with a cleaner that you can buy at a store. If that doesnt work then you need to take the 4 or 5 skrews out that hold the top on and look at the motor and gears move while you put a tape in and you should spot the problem pretty quick. It'll be with the round metal wheel that turns the tape.

SOURCE: I can't play any VCR tapes or DVD's in my Magnavox. Shows E1

Hi All, I realize this post may be a bit late for some but I just bought this unit myself on 12-22-08. After reading the pdf manual I downloaded from an earlier post the description of "E1" and "E2" is on page 20 and more details are on pages 35 & 36.

"E1" is the display indicator the unit is looking for a External input signal or Line Mode. "E1" External input on the rear, "E2" External input on the front. No signal present so the unit shuts off.

I suggest changing/setting your record channel or source before starting any record mode steps. Hope this helps.

You will need a technical person to open the unit. This problem can be as simple as a dirty sensor, or bad tape drive parts, or burned out computer chip.

SOURCE: vcr won't stay on

Okay, I don't know if this will help you or not, but I unplugged the unit and left it unplugged over night. This morning I plugged it in and it is working just fine. I did not have to reset anything or run setup again.

Good luck.

Yes, you can, I have this unit and have actually copied a dvd to a vhs and then copied back to a dvd as I wanted a dvd copy to give a friend. The directions in the book are really quite simple. They tell you how to set the vhs to the spot where you want to start copying, etc.

I have not yet tried copying my family vhs tapes, but don't see a problem, just a big project. Good luck.

If this is a DVD Recorder, you must be sure that DVD -/+ discs are FINALIZED. The discs you've recorded should also be checked on another DVD player other than the one they were recorded on. If not finalized, they will play nowhere else but the recorder they were recorded on.

Sansui DVD/VCR remote control issue, VCR works/DVD does not-black


There should be a DVD/VCR button on the remote control which will toggle the machine from one playback source to another. If she has pressed the VCR button then the machine will only playback tapes & not show DVD's. Press this button & the DVD's should play. If you look closely at the front window of the machine it will show what mode it is in ie VCR or DVD, set this for the DVD to get it to play.

RE: My VCR & DVD Video Recorder The vcr part of it only plays in black n white ( there is a picture but not that great) and there is no sound. What could be wrong with it? Thank you so much!


Depending upon the make and model, bad capacitors on the head/drum assembly can cause this. If the heads do not lock at the correct speed, the picture may appear OK, but have no color. Please post the make and model so I can confirm this or attempt to provice more details.

Thanks,
