Your playback heads might be clogged. I am not sure if this camera with give you a RF warning if your record heads get clogged. Also most professional machines drums are rated at 1000 - 1500 hours before they need to be replaced. If you are at 500 and never cleaned the heads it is time to. Run a cleaning tape a few times.
If you are recording the tapes in a slow speed, then I would suspect that the tracking pulse is not being recorded properly. Since this is a new VCR, return it for an exchange. One of the recording heads is bad.
there are guide posts that the tape goes around, they need to be adjusted if your good at that stuff take off cover and while playing tape be careful you could damage video head.with flat srew drive . adjust right post buy turning clockwise or counter clockwise. this could be hard i hope i helped , When i first started ny video shop 1987 we started doing only vcrs.
The video head also could be bad. thanks doctor video
It sounds like the taped program was recorded on a different speed. The other VCR that you are playing the taped program may not have the speed needed to play it correctly.
Next time when you record a program try to make sure you use a speed that will be compatible on both VCRs.
For example a tape that last 120 minutes, using the different speeds will give the following recording times.
SP means "Standard Play" >>>> 2 hours
LP means " Long Play" >>>>> 4 hours ELP means " Extra Long Play" 8 hours
Older VCRs have all the 3 speeds but newer ones only have SP and ELP.
Hope this helps.
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!
Hey do the tapes play at all? sometimes some tapes recorded
on other machines won't play on others. maybe you need to adjust the tracking on the VCR you are playing it on. If the tape
was recorded on a VCR that is misaligned it might not play back
on another VCR. Also the tape may have been recorded on a
super VHS VCR in et (extended definition) mode if so they won't play on just any VCR. If the picture looks scrambled like a
premium channel on analog cable then it's probably recorded in et.
and if its recorded on super VHS tape it may eject out of your VCR.
They don't make these S-VHS vcrs anymore but people still
have them around. There is also Digital VHS they're not
compatible with VHS either. A VHS recorded in et mode will
play on some more expensive vcrs it should say so on the box
Sounds like you have either a problem with the CCD block or on the mainboard where the encode/decode section is. If it is the CCD block it is defective or you have a loose or dirty connection on the ribbon cable from the CCD block. In record mode you are seeing the video E/E, which means you are looking at the video from the CCD block which has passed through the mainboard. That would explain the lines on the viewfinder. When you playback a tape you are looking at the recorded signal, but it also passes through the mainboard. It is not clear whether the tapes you are talking about playing were pre-recorded previously (prior to this problem) and played previously, with no lines present. If they were recorde previously, played back previously with no lines, and not re-recorded. They should be OK provided the problem is not tape damage. Since you say that all tapes do it, I would think it is not tape damage. The best place to start, to sort out the problem, would be to locate a known good camcorder and try your tapes in it. If they play fine the problem is on the mainboard but after the record circuitry, ie. only in the playback circuitry. If they have the lines the problem could still be on the mainboard but also could be the CCD issue I talked about. This is a tough problem to isolate and will take a good repair tech. If you are not familiar with troubleshooting camcorders you will need to locate a reputable and experienced repair facility. First you should do the test I mentioned on a known good camcorder as this will help a repair tech make a diagnosis. If there are no repair shops in your area here are several which offer free estimates: http://www.camcorderrepair.com or http://www.videotech.com or http://www.videoonerepair.com Good luck.
Tapes may be played back by the camera itself. If the tape was shot in the 720P (HD) or 480P (SD) modes, it cannot be played back on a standard DV VCR or camera. Tapes shot in the 480i (DV) mode are completely compatible and can be played back on any DV VCR/camera. In addition, tapes can be dubbed to a JVC HD DVHS VCR via the firewire connector.
