What is the bias control's function?


The Bias control is used during recording. If you turn down the bias, you will get more highs, but the distortion will increase, and then start to increase dramatically if you back off the bias more.

As far as playing tapes from different decks goes.......

1..Does the tape that you recorded on your deck sound OK on your deck ?
2..Does the tape that you recorded on your deck sound OK on other decks ?

If 1 and 2 are true, then your deck is OK.

If the tapes recorded on a specific deck sound bar on yours, but 1 and 2 are true, then the other deck is faulty.

When a deck leaves the factory, the head is aligned to a " standard " tape. By standard tape I mean a very special tape recorded in such a way, that a tech can tell if the head is out of align and "tweek " the physical alignment of the tape head..

All decks are aligned just a little differently, but fairly close to each other.

first do the mechanicals....is the head of your deck spotlessly clean ?. Use 99% pure isopropanol alcohol and a cotton swab. Never use anything metal to clean the tape head. If you scratch the head, its toast.

If your deck is clean, plays its own recordings well, and those recordings play well on other decks, then your deck is not the problem.

Hope this helps,
Rob

Videotape dubbing deck dead


Hi,

1. Check to see if a tape is jammed inside (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape).
2. Try changing the video input and/or output source. Many VCRs have two ways to receive and send a video signal (coaxial and video direct). If that works, try changing the cable for the other method to see whether you need a new cable.
3. Clean tape heads (see How to Clean VCR Heads).
4. Open VCR and inspect any belts that are accessible (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape). A drive belt may be broken or loose.


If tapes are getting stuck / enmeshed inside the machine, itis 90% probability) a mechanical problem. Change the Belts, clean all rollers, idlers, and braking pads.
I would suggest that you also replace the Capstan Pinch Roller.

Goodluck..

VCR audio works but no pictureSound has static but no picture on my recording or on a movie


The heads probably need to be cleaned. You can clean it with acetone. Use a foam swab,do not use a cotton swab,because the fibers get caught it the head. Its the chrome cylinder that spins. It has little windows on it that are the actual heads. Sometimes it takes 2 to 3 cleanings before results. Let it dry 5 to 10 Min's before you put ub a tape. Hope this helpful.

The message :"clean the heads" is displayed when trying to play. Attempted to clean heads with alkohol soaked cotton swab - no effect. When the message iss displayed the "Audio" sounds perfectly fine.


Could be because the video head is worn, however, in some LG/NEC VCR's from a few years ago had a problem with the video head plug not fitting into it's socket correctly... So try disconnecting, and reconnecting the vid head... Does the picture look OK before the message appears? You need to make sure you remove any dirt inside the 3-4mm holes on the side of the head cylinder, just be careful not to copper windings inside.

Sony TC-WE475 problem when taping A to B, B is not recording. Heads turn but no sound.


Hey there,
Next time you have a few minutes, open the B side of the tape deck and look at the actual tape head- if it is dirty, you can clean it using cotton swabs and 80% isopropyl alcohol. (Higher than 80% is actually better, because it has less water in it)
Let me know if this helps your problem,
HortonA!

Sound but no picture


Most likely the VCR needs a head cleaning. This is common when playing older or rented tapes as the oxide recording surface can flake off and clog the video heads. You can try a head cleaning cassette. Make sure to get a wet-type cassette which you moisten with the included cleaning fluid.

Unfortunately this is not always successful for severely clogged heads. It may be necessary to remove the cover and clean the heads with a chamois cleaning swab moistened with head cleaner. Hold the swab flat against the round drum that holds the heads and move the drum back and forth while holding the swab steady. Repeat this for each of the heads. The heads are fragile and can be damaged by incorrect cleaning, so you might want to see what a shop in your area charges. (The shop I worked in used to charge $20, but that was several years ago.)

There's also the chance there's been head failure or some other problem has developed, but dirty heads are very common.

SANSUI SC-2100 RECORDING PROBLEM


First try cleaning the heads with some electronics grade alcohol and a static free cleaning swab...although it sounds like the head may need alignment...if those two things do not work out for you, the capstan motor might be the culprit.
