    the picture is snowy.

  • roeyb Nov 14, 2008

    when you say "hit play, then scan in the reverse mode" do you mean - hit rewind and watch the blank screen as it is rewinding? not sure what you mean by scan in the reverse mode,

    I have the same problem. I have a DVD/VCR combo player. It doesn't matter whether it is a PAL or NTSC VHS tape, but I am not getting picture from VHS tapes (Sound is Ok) while playing.

    DVD discs play without any problem on the same Combo Player.

    DVD works fine on S-Video, but no video signal on VHS -screen is blank not snowy. VHS audio is fine. Composite output works with VHS, the heads are not dirty.

Is the picturejust snow or no picture at all? Most cleaning tapes won't work if the heads have been clogged up because of a bad tape. A professional cleaning and alignment may be in order here. Can you clarify the lack of picture please?

    The snowy picture is an indication that there is no signal from the video heads. The audio comes from a different head. The heads are clogged up. Try taking a blank tape and "playing" it from beginning to end. Then rewind it just enough to start playing again. Hit play then scan in the reverse mode for a few minutes. That might clean up the heads enough to work. If not, then you will need to have the unit professionally cleaned.


  • ABRsvcs Nov 14, 2008

    Some machines will allow you to "preview" by hitting either FF or REW when in play mode. This will force the tape to go in reverse mode and hopefully "clean" the heads.

No picture but has sound in VHS, Both work in DVD play

The main cause of this is a dirty video head. You can get a head cleaning tape that will clean the head. Or you can do it manually. But you have to take off the top cover and spray the video head with Servisol Video 40. Allow it to dry and test the machine. If it doesn't do it the first time or the picture is breaking up, clean again.

Insert a VHS tape, hear sound, no picture? DVD working fine, both sound & picture. What am I doing wrong?

Likely a damaged video tape got in the unit and blocked the video heads--once blocked no picture but sound will be the case---the heads can be manually cleaned if you know how---The real issue will be to locate which tape was in the unit when this happened--clear the heads and put it back and right back to no image......

Cleaning tapes are only slightly effective--most shops (if you can find one who even works on this gear) will not charge much to clean the heads.

Dear Zepp,

Firstly, video is not a clear as DVD.

Do the video heads need cleaning?
Is the video tape a bit worn?, Try another video tape.
Do the video tracking controls needs tweaking?

On some of the DVD/VCR combo units, the VCR output is only available through the RF jack (channel 3), standard video1.gif (yellow) RCA jack and S-VIDEO jack. If you are using the Component jacks, the DVD side will work but the VCR will not. This is because the quality of video recorded on VHS tapes is so much lower than component quality video.
Thank you for rating this solution.

Video no audio

If the DVD works with a picture and sound then it is not a hook up problem.. Its the VCR tape heads need cleaning so follow the insert im attaching here. CLEANING THE VIDEO HEADS - in the event of a head clog, the first thing professionals try to accomplish on a cleaning job is to restore the picture. Cleaning the video heads is the most critical part of the process. Use extreme caution. Never use cotton swabs. Cotton tends to grab, get caught or leave fibers in the heads. It can also break them. Using chamois sticks is by far the safest method. Soak a chamois stick with head cleaning fluid and place it directly on a video head with light pressure. For beginners, the safest method involves holding the chamois stick stationary in one hand and rotating the drum clockwise with the other. You want all scrubbing action to be in a horizontal direction. Never use any vertical motion; it's very risky for head tip breakage. When finished, allow a minute or two for the heads to dry and your ready to try it out. Pop in a tape and press PLAY. Confirm the picture is now clear. If not, you might want to repeat the above process once again. Ninety eight percent of the time, cleaning the video heads solves this symptom. Most of the remaining two percent is caused by a defective video head somewhere on the upper drum. Hope this helps Ps Dont forget to rate this.
