Re: VCR will not go to date 2009
I wish you luck on your search for an answer, but vcr's are programmed for a possible life expectancy. So ur vcr was expecting to be in a landfill by january 2009 and according to its programming there is not a 2009. Combo units at walmart are realativly cheap now a days I would recommend picking up a new one.

This is because something is jamming either in the adaptor mechanism (nightmare devices at best!) or in the tape cassette. If you can afford to, escape from this dinosaur technology and enjoy a digital camcorder with a hard drive and/or recording on cards. No moving parts! No tape tangles, jams or breaks! HD quality! Well worth considering.
You can usually apply a couple of drops on the tape itself as it will not harm. The tape itself might have a hole located on the cassette itself close to the see through cover. We normal tell people to drop a couple of drops into the tape area
You don't specify the adapter you have, but most load from the top. The main thing here is that VHS and VHS-C are both the same size of tape. Whether they are recorded in SVHS mode or not will not affect the adapter, just whether or not you get a picture. Theadapter only allows you to put a compact cassette (VHS-C) into a standard VHS VCR. The adapter will require batteries to allow it to place the VHS-C cassette tape into the proper position for use in the VCR.
You can get a cassette adaptor that will except any VHS-C tapes and play them back on any standard VCR from Maplin www.maplin.co.uk.
They are £14.99 plus post! It's unlikely that you just have to have the Panasonic one!
Take one scart from the digi-box & connect the other end to the TV, & the second scart on the digi-box can connect to the VCR. To record from the digi-box, the VCR must be set to the AUX input (or AV ). The TV will also be set to the AV input, this set up will let you watch digital channels & to record a digital source. Be aware depending on your type of digi-box, you may not be able to record & watch two different digital channels at the same time.
You need to hook up your vcr to a video capture device, they have them for around $100 at your local Circuit Shack, it takes the rca jacks from your vcr's output, and puts it to usb, it may also come with the software to do it, if not windows mover maker is set up to, good luck mantin
As with all tape related recording equiptment, the path the tape follows in your machine will collect debris which will interfere with the synchronizing playback signals originally recorded on our tape when first recorded. The "ROLLING" is the loss of those synchronizing signals and the "skewing" of the tape where the heads are now reading between the recorded information causing noise at the top or bottom or throughout the entire screen.
SOLUTION for about 85% of machines exhibiting this problem is CLEANING and inspection of tape path alignment best done with a calibrated playback tape for accuracy.
HOPE this helps . . .
