Re: VCR Samsung SV-5000W
You should take off the top cover with the set unplugged and see if there is a main fuse that popped. If there is, put in another fuse,. If that blows, then your going to need to have the power supply in this unit repaired. Good Luck

Your chassis ground is intermittant. Remove the VCR cover and look just behind the head drum. You will see two copper tangs sticking out, these supply the ground to the grey chassis and are a pressure fit. Remove the 7 screws from the grey chassis, two are underneath the VCR, two on top near the VHS tape opening, and three larger screws are on top of the chassis (2 near back and 1 near front). This will allow you to lift the grey chassis about a 1/2" and you can then reach below the copper tangs and gently pry them up. Reinstall the 7 screws and the VCR cover and the snow will disappear.
I looked at the link provided and there was no cure mentioned. From my experience with VCRs in general, I would suspect a flaw in the video pre-amp circuit used for playback. This could be distortion. Without seeing the actual unit and examining the signals on an oscilloscope, I can't be sure where the problem exists. It should be fixable however. Something as simple as a bad filter cap at the heads could cause this as well. The signal levels at the heads are extremely low. This unit requires test equipment that the homeowner is nit likely to posess. I would take this to a service shop.
Based on your post/description, you need to get a multi-system TV to go with your multi system VCR if you are going to playback VHS tapes from different regions.
You are quite correct "Plays NTSC tapes to NTSC,
Will not Play Pal to NTSC" to play PAL (even Secam) you would need a PAL/Secam TV. They have a different system for color and audio. In some cases, you can still play PAL but you get it in black & white and picture squeezed from top & bottom.
Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and kind regards.
This may indicate power supply problems, or perhaps an overload condition, causing the power supply to go into overload protection.
If you have a voltmeter, schematic (helpful but not 100% necessary), you could check voltages. You should see at +5 volts, +12 volts, and one or two others.
A frequent power supply problem is one or more electrolytic capacitors go wacky, and cause the voltages to be way off, and a non-operational unit.
If this is one of the newer low cost rigs, then taking it to a service center isn't cost effective. Toss it and purchase a new one.
following is pasted from SV-7000W manual:
1 To lock the VCR, hold down the P/STILL (II) button for
approximately five seconds.
Result: The lock indicator (LOCK) is displayed.
If a cassette is in the VCR when you lock it, the cassette will
first be ejected.
2 To unlock the VCR, hold down the P/STILL (II) button again for
approximately five seconds.
Result: The lock indicator (LOCK) is no longer displayed.
If that fails, try the same thing using the play/stop button.
