    Not sure if the vtr image is the problem. It just will not record or play for me. I can hear the tape going but all I get is snow.

Pravin is right,there has to be a certain signal level present before switching from vtr to picture.This could be caused by either the control head or the play heads being dirty.try a cleaning tape firstly.,

When I fast forward I can't view the video.

Some VCR's can't view tapes recorded on other machines. However you could try cleaning the video heads to see if that makes any differrance.

I need the video head for a sony slv 815

The parts you are looking won't be easy to find, go online to sony, contact customer support, and the technical department to see if they can help, if not! try and find a repairman that still repairs vcr's, because he would have access to part suppliers that may still carry what you need.

Have Sony VCR model SLV-N80/N70 . Cannot get it to record using Samsung TV model SLV-N80,N70.

The television has nothing to do with recording. It is only required for playback. There are a number of possibilities depending on what equipment you have. Do you have cable, satellite, antenna? Your signal source has to be connected to the VCR either through the cable connector, or RCA video jacks.
If you have straight cable, connect the cable to the "ant in" connector on the VCR. The VCRs tuner will select the channel you want to record. If you are on antenna, you will need a Digital set top box (STB) to receive any channels.
If you have a satellite, cable box or digital STB, you must go from the output of the box to the input of the VCR. You can use the standard coax cable,but I would recommend using the audio/video cables for better quality. If using coax, the VCR will have to be set to either channel 3 or 4, depending on the boxes output setting. Using A/V jacks, the VCR will be set to "Line" or "Video" input.
