Aiwa mx100 (al system vcr)

We've been having problems trying to play our pal system tapes. The regular NTSC tapes play perfectly while with the pal system ones we can only get the audio well. The image is black and white and very bad Thank you for all your insight on this troubleshooting matter M. Serrano worldtran1@aol.com

    The AIWA MX100 plays pal, secam and regular ntsc. We had this vcr player for 6 years and never experience this problem before. It is not an issue of selecting the proper player since we do it all the time. We would like to know what the real problem is.
    Thank you

It is being the same TV system. Everything has been the same. It is the VCR which is not playing our pal-system videos. I honestly think the VCR IS failing. What part could need replacement? Thank you

Have you given thought to the TV on which you guys play your PAL tapes? Did you change your TV? Or perhaps the system seleceted on the TV is not PAL? I am sure you realise that both TV and VCR should be on PAL System for correct colour? Again, PAL has various variations - PAL - I, PAL B/G, PAL D/K, etc. PAL -I is the Broadcast system in the UK and Hong Kong, B/G in most of Europe except France, and D/K in the Middle East and some African Nations. I still feel that it is a System compatibility issue, and not a 'problem' in the VCR, as your NTSC tapes play perfectly.

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!

    according to the specs of your vcr its a multi system, therefore, you can select the right system from your vcr.

Is your VCR fixed?
From what you have written, I understand that you have not used the VCR for many months. And since you are hearing a whirring noise, the eject motor is working, but the belts are spoilt, and are slipping. Hence your problem. I suggest you open the top cover of the VCR and observe the eject mechanism. As suggested, you will - in all likelihood, observe that the belt driving the eject gears is slipping.

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.

PAL to NTSC conversion


This is not a converting unit, it will play the format of the tape inside. To convert the signal you need one of the following:

1) A converting VHS player; they are fairly expensive.
2) A separate video converter (hardware); they run for about $200-$500; just put this between your VCR and the TV.
3) Capture the PAL on your computer using a software like Movie Maker via a Firewire cable. Than convert it to NTSC on your machine using software like Nero... do a search on Google for converting software. Or just watch it on our computer in PAL format, most computers do that... For this step I use a separate camcoder that has a passthrough feature. The VCR connects to it and the camcorder connects to the computer via Firewire.
4) send the PAL tape to a specialized shop for conversion. They normally charge $30-$40 for a regular 2h VHS tape.

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.

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.
