My vcr plays commercially-recorded tapes fine, but tapes recorded on it or another VCR play with the sound distorted. The picture seems fine.


Sounds like its mechanism need some alignment. Guide pole alignment. Contact any service technician. This is technically skilled work. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Video on my Sony VCR (SLV-780HF) goes gray after playing a tape a few seconds. What could be the problem?


The only real cure will be to clean the video head. If that doesn't work then I'm afraid that whatever recorded you EP mode tape was not set up well tracking wise. So other machines struggle to track the tape. Some VCR's will only playback SP or LP tapes and don't have EP mode. In which case you should check to see if these VCR's can play the EP tape and if they can't find one that can.

Orion VCR 213 will not record with converter box


The chain of cabling that you have should go like this; First in line should be the wall supplying the cable box. Then, the cable box connects to the VCR, then the out of the VCR should go to the TV. Select whatever channel you desire, make sure that the VCR is on Channel 3 or 4, (Whichever the back of the cable box is set) then select 3,4 or line/AUX to see the results....accordianman

Manually setting vcr


I'm sorry but, there is no way to set the speed without the remote. Last time I checked a remote for a VR213 was less than $15.00 delivered. Just FYI. If you change your mind call the number on the unit. Sorry. No magic bullits.

VCR ejects blank tape only


It sounds like the cassette is not releasing the tape so the machine can put it around the heads. This could damage the machine. Don't use it. A two dollar tape is not worth damaging your vcr. Throw it away.

Dubbing from VCR to VCR


you should just have to plug the first vcr using the RCA jacks,(yellow,red,white). into the second vcr. so the output from the first vcr to the input of the other. then if you want to watch it while its recording though its not necassary you just plug the video/audio out of the second vcr into the tv. So the first vcr you play the tape in and the second you put the blank tape in and press record.
Thats all there is to it.
Let me know how it goes.
Thanks,
Lee

NOTE:: some VCRs use PAUSE 2nd time to release and continue recording, while some machines you must press RECORD button again to release PAUSE. you must expirement before begining your project.

How to set clock on Orion VCR VR0419


Most late VCRs require the remote box to set the clock, timed recording etc. Assuming you have the Orion remote, it should have a programming or menu button, and the function you need can be selected from a list of options. If the remote is an aftermarket unit (non-Orion), it must have the capability to do the advanced setup (clock set etc.). Many aftermarket remotes only do basic channel selection, and tape functions (play, rewind, stop, etc.).
