Question about Goldstar GVR-E435 VHS VCR
We had a power outage and since can record but nothing plays back. When I play any tape back, I get the same response: tape has black, white, scratchy images. I reset the channels and checked that everything was adjusted but to no avail. I cleaned the head with wet cleaner but it still won't playback any tapes....please help.
First check how good / bad are your recordings. Take a current / recent recording done after this problem cropped up, and play it back on another VCR - maybe a friend's. If the recording plays back badly- showing the symptoms you described, then the problem is still dirty or worn out Video Heads. If the Recording plays back perfectly on the friend's machine, but plays back badly on your machine, I still suggest that you try cleaning the Heads one more time, and if the problem is not resolved, it is time to trash the VCR. One last question, you say that you have reset the channels. Are the reception channels' images clear? I may be able to give some more suggestions, based on this response.
