Hi,

If the cleaning, reconnection and channel settings would not correct the issue and if at all possible, bring it back to point of purchase and demand a replacement. Alternately, the unit has to be opened up for a look & see voiding warranty.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

If this is when you are playing a video tape it may just need the video tape head cleaned. Have you tried that yet?

    You can buy a head cleaning tape at most retailers who sell VCR's, put it in and run it for about a minute and see if it clears up the snow. One bad tape put into the VCR can clog the heads. This happens most often when the video tape is several years old, the tape starts to degrade and clogs the head very quickly. When you are hearing the audio but getting snow on the video it is a symptom of a dirty video head or even a defective video head. Since this is just a week old, you should take it to be serviced under warranty if the head cleaning doesn't help. Any type of repair you may try to do yourself to this machine may void your warranty. Better to be safe than sorry.

    You should also check to make sure that the TV is properly set. if you are using the RF connector you may need the tV set to channel 3 or 4, if it is not on the right channel this can also happen.

    if the connections get loose from any of the jacks and sockets it gives such problem.so try reconnecting it properly and firmly.

    also get the tape checked in any other device or any other tape in the device to locate the exact problem is in the tape or the device.

  • mmechanics Nov 13, 2008

    if still the problem exists then it is quite possible the internal head is fauty and needs cleaning.as u stated the device is just a week old calling service center is much advisable to make it proper.

    thanks/.

The VCR has at least four "heads" two are for 2 hr and two for 6 hour (sp and slp)

It is most likely one of the heads used in the SLP mode is slightly blocked with tape debris--heads need to be manually cleaned in the right way.

Do you have a tracking control on the

record It can be adjusted during playback
to clear up the picture adjust it for the best

If you dont have a tracking control on the

Jvc a 55u plays a movie from the store but I cant get it to tape a regular tape,it's a nice vcr and I have never seen this problem, the moves from the store are played great but when I put in my own tape...


Hi Diane,
Just downloaded the manual for your vcr it says:

1 Press menu

2 press up/down arrows to Function Set then press ok

3 press channel up/down arrows to Auto picture then press Ok or shuttle plus right arrow to set to on or off when using rental tapes set either to on or off to give the best picture

4 to return to normal press menu

For recording

1 load a cassette make sure the tab on the cassette is intact if not put some cellotape over the hole

2 set channel press up/down arrows then press enter

3 select tape speed sp/ep

4 press and hold rec and press play on remote or just press record on unit

5 to pause recording (cut out ads) press pause on remote to continue again press play

6 to stop recording just press the stop button

hope this helps and reflects in my feedback lol all the best

Too fast playback of video cassette


Hi,

Initially, I am inclined to think that nothing is wrong. It is just most likely that that particular tape was recorded in a different speed other than what your VCR is capable of playing. This is a form of compression wherein a longer recording/playing time is squeezed into the same type/kind of tape. The various settings are SP, LP, EP or even an XP. Pls click here to give you an idea of the recording time/speed at different settings.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

VCR tape playback not good


Check your "tracking" If the tape played fine in the old machine, then tracking is the answer, provided that the new machine records good.

Poor EP playback


hi sir
the speed in EP is differ from sp ,EP it is much slow then all quality would be less cause you are using less magnetic particles on the tape so here are many reasons for bad recording
first may be you have to clean video heads
or ,you have to clean the path of the tape in the recorder there are some metal guides that turnes with the tape to get it rounds the heads they may be dirty
or clean the capstain pinch roller and its metal roller that makes it run ( the capstain roller )
or you should have new heasd drum sir
