if your vcr is a multisystem, select the proper system in your vcr for the video to be played. but if not, you cannot play your PAL in your NTSC vcr. good luck!

Just Clean the Video heads with a Wet Type Head Cleaner. Do 2 or 3 runs. Should clear up the problem.

SOURCE: Pal to NTSC

Hi, 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.

Trouble recording and playing NTSC tapes on NTSC TV!!


Sounds like the video head is dirty. Take the top cover off VCR, locate the video head, which is the rotating shiny aluminum cylindrical piece. At the lower edge of this drum are the actual heads. Use a lint free cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol or product specifically designed for such cleaning, and carefully wipe the heads and drum. Just hold cloth over a finger, and rotate the drum. Sometimes you will need to do this a couple of times.

If VCR has alot of hours or an abrasive cleaning tape has been used excessively, the head could be worn out and a candidate for the trash, unless it is a high dollar unit.

Picture gets bad after playing a while


Just the usual problem of needing the rubber belts replaced.
They last about 6 years normally so you are overdue.
Buy a kit of belts for your model from all kinds of sites on the net and install them yourself if you are handy with delicate mechanisms.
Hope ya fix it!

NTSC to PAL


You have to buy first a VHS player that can play NTSC, might not be available locally in Ireland so you have to probably buy online (US). The DVD recorder is fairly comnon nowadays and all of them are capable of recording and playing NTSC and PAL. You can then connect the AV out of VHS player to the AV In of the recorder. Or you can use a VHS-DVD combi. You can google in UK, here is an example: Toshiba RD-XV45, according to the specs, it can play NTSC on the VHS and you can record to DVD on any format that yoou want You can go to this link to view other product: http://audiovisual.kelkoo.co.uk/b/a/sbs/100304323/16875665.html My father died of cancer 6 years ago and I am also transferring the Hi-8 videos to digital format using PC.

VCR not working for some cassettes


What do you mean by "not able to play my VCR with some cassettes. " Is it that some tapes do not display images? No Video? From your name it seems that you are from India, Assuming that to be so, I also presume that you must be possesing a Multi-System VCR, to play back PAL Tapes from India, and NTSC tapes from the US. And if that is the case, I guess it is a simple problem of resetting the System standards. Please go to the Main menu of your VCR using the Remote, and select AUTO in System (You will be given choices of AUTO, PAL, NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.43 and NTSC PB PAL. Likewise, it is entirely possible that your Television SYSTEm Standard has been accidentally changed. If it is Multi System TV, Then, again, using the Remote of the TV, select Menu, and then select AUTO in System. In all likelihood your problem should get solved.
