Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have an LXI VCR which last year it worked without any problems. Today I went to tape a program and noticed it went back to the year 1994. The VCR will not allow me to put in 2009. Does this mean I need to get a new VCR?

Just forget it. I thought this was free advice. I found out that my VCR was only programmed to 2008 so I will just have to get a new one.

Vhs SP tapes


It sounds like the tapes may be physically damaged, wrinkled or creased. This may have been done when they were played in whatever machine you used 5 years ago. Tapes can also be damaged in storage by heat or humidity. Tapes should also be stored on end in their boxes, not flat. If these tapes were stored flat, the bottom edge might have gotten wrinkled. This can damage the control track and cause playback issues.

Movie tapes have snow but not home video tapes can i fix it my self


I assume you have had this player a while and I assume that all the programs that work without snow are ones that you recorded using that VCR to do it. Right?

If so, it is a compatibility issue where the last time you had it fixed, the repair guy did not check for VCR to VCR compatibility. I had a shop for 15 years and this is common.

Do you have a Tracking control? try adjusting that. It is either a physical control or part of the menu, depending on that specific model.

Last...last is to open the unit and you must be very very careful. Put in a tape that is from another player that plays snow and identify the shinny rotating head if you can physically see it. It sits at an angle and the RCA is typically in the back middle, about an inch in a half in diameter. While playing press your finger very very lightly in the middle of the shinny exposed video tape for like 4-10 seconds and maybe the snow will go away.

Your video head may be worn or dirty. Do not attempt to clean the heads the are verrrry delicate.

3. Try finding an old VCR cleaning tape. It does the same thing as your finger.

Magnavox VCR U095 39760450-can not put in 2009 YR to record


I called Magavox and Matt told me they had no information for my very very old vcr. He suggested that I trick the machine and use a date similar to the current calendar. For instance, today is Monday, January 5th. I went back to 2004 and found the same day and date. I programmed my vcr for 30 minutes to test it out and it worked. If you can't beat it, join it. Hope your vcr works too. Happy new year!

It needs Belts/Idler/Pinch roller.. If you UNPLUG IT, remove the cover you can wind the tape back manually....When you can get a DVD player.

No sound Problem - Philips VR550 VHS VCR


If your pre-recorded tapes also play without sound, then check the scart lead is in straight.

If not, then it's more likely to be a dirty audio head.

Try a VHS head cleaner tape.

Tv vcr combo


The best way I can think of is to REMOVE the rubber band that loads the tape into the transport unit.Be KILLFULL (careful) the band is right next to the B+ (power supply) or the A\C 120volt
( and if u can find the replacement rubber bands, buy 2 kits)

SERIES LXI TV & vhS


I'm guessing the "black thing in side" is referring to the actual tape itself- ribbon like which can be spooled out of the tape case. If so, then your VCR may have a mechanical problem of some sort, which results in a "no tape transport" or "no tape takeup" problem. If the latter, the right reel (takeup reel) is not being driven. Older VCRs often used a small rubber rimmed drive mechanism to drive this reel. Newer VCRs (10 years old or less) pretty much use a gear drive. Something may be broken here, or perhaps the gear is stuck. This gear assembly has to swivel back and forth, from left for rewind, to right for takeup or fast-forward. Unfortunately, you can't see the gear once the tape is in the machine, at least not from the topside. Suggestion: Take the top cover of VCR off, look for this gear, and see if it swivels freely, look for broken gear teeth.

VCR tape stuck


Yes, it is a mechanical problem. While the tape is in fast forward the gears are engaged and locked to provide drive to the spindel on the right, however when you press the rewind button without hitting stop, the gears try to engage the spindel on the left without stoping and reversing (changing rotational positioning), this causes the motor to stop (this emulates a tape jam)the tope is left in and the unload mechanism never spools the tape back in because the motor has stopped. To free the tape, what I do is open up the unit and find the main motor check to see if the belt has slipped, if it has not try to manually spin the motor to engage the unload mechanism and eject the tape.
