Question about JVC HR-VP650 VHS VCR

Seinfeld DVD episodes won't play

I have a JVC HR-XVC26U DVD/VCR combo. I've had it for about 4 years. I've been able to play DVD movies, The Simpsons DVDs, Family Guy DVDs, etc. with no problems. But lately I've been borrowing my brother's Seindeld DVDs. They are store-bought region 1 and I've had problems with every DVD I've tried watching (Seasons 1-6 so far). In "play all" mode, I can play the first 2 or 3 episodes on each disc with no problems, but usually somewhere during the 4th episode, the video just freezes and then either kicks me back to the main menu or just goes to the blue "JVC" screen. I can't manually play the last few episodes, either; it'll go through the copyright warning screens and then kick me back to the menu for that episode. Why just the Seinfeld DVDs? Is it time for a new VCR?

    The same thing happens to me when I play Seinfeld DVDs on my laptop, although I can play every episode on my regular DVD player, but on my laptop I cannot play the last 2 or 3 episodes of each disc. It is REALLY frustrating. Does anyone else have this problem or have a solution?

I fixed this by using a dvd head cleaner. Worked like a charm. Hope it fixes yours too!

It is probably not your VCR. If it is only the Seinfeld DVD's then the format that the production company wrote on those few episodes are incompatible with your vcr. I know I'm not solving your problem much, but don't go waste money on a brand new Vcr when not needed.

Video tape gets eaten on rewind


Does the machine play tapes well? Clear steady picture and all? No tracking bars? wavering sound? Tape chewing is generally a problem with a bad Capstan Pinch Roller, Associated symptoms are as above. Please do recheck or confirm if any of the above problems are also present.
