Question about Sony SLV-SE240 VHS VCR

Open Question

No image, but some sound

Hi, I just bought a Sony SLV-SE240 on sale because it didn't come with an instruction manuel. Now I'm having trouble connecting it to the TV (also a Sony). I've hoooked up the scart cable (correctly, I think). When I go to the corresponding input setting on the TV, I can hear the tape playing, but there is no image and the sound is on fast forward. I am in Europe, in case that is relevant. I've tried both European and US tapes and got the same problems. If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it! blue

SOURCE: loads tape then stops - won't play rewind fast

Way to go. Usually if you use anisotropic Alcohol with a few Q-tips works well I've found.
Try cleaning the other tap path items like the capstan that the pinch roller get's pushed up to also with this Alcohol. The cleaner the better the tape goes through. Much better picture.

Look around the menus on the VCR and see if you can find "sound/audio" or something like it. Make certain it says NIACAM, that should solve the problem.

I have a Sony SLV-SE240 VHS. I am currently able to record TV programmes in mono but not in stereo. How do I arrange it so that I can record programmes in stereo?

Sony SlV-SE730 VCR video inserted wrong way

Unplug the VCR.
Take the cover off by taking out the small screws on the sides and on the back that hold the cover on.
With the cover off you should be able to gently move the tape back out.
Things could be damaged......after the tape is out, you should try it first with a tape that could possibly be damaged during testing and do not touch anything inside while plugged in to power during testing with the cover off!
Now......if it is not a working VCR are in luck.
There are garage sales every weekend...and almost every one has a VCR for almost nothing....some like new.....and boxes and boxes of tapes/movies for very little money too.

Hi! I'm looking for a user manual for my newly acquired Sony SLV-2000 VCR. I've Googled and gotten nowhere. Lots of dead-ends. HELP!

Problem solved. I went online and found a pdf file for the Sony SLV-R1000 manual. This manual works just as well for the Sony SLV-2000. I'm a happy camper...
