My VCR/DVD HR-XVC40B is less than one week old. When I first set it up it both recorded and played tapes uneventfully. Now I get a good picture on both the TV and the VCR line but when I press Play i get noisy snow only. Can you help?

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.

My vcr tapes play too fast


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.

While playing a vhs tape, I only get sound, no picture. No problem with a dvd.


You may have a dirty video head, try a wet or dry cleaning tape (I recommend the dry tape) the other option is to use a brand new store bought tape T120, set vcr to sp "2hrs" and let it play the full time.

Everytime I record a programme and try to play it, the picture jumps throught. I cannot find a tracking button, is there one?


No, it's auto tracking on that model. Check the condition of the tape you are recording on.
If its old it will record in poor quality, also try running a tape head cleaner, a wet one is best.
If that solves the problem for a while, say 3 or 4 plays, then it returns then the tapes are old and probably not usable.
I hope this helps.

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.
