    Is this a static or a buzzing sound. If a buzzing sound, make sure your AV cables are plugged in correctly.

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.

TV Snow and Static Sound


Sound like its all cabled wrong So its from the source, (wall satalight Whatever ) to VCR in then VCR out to TV, Now when the VCR fires up it tunes the RF output to Chanel 4 and has a strong signal, that over rides just about every thing. Simply way to stop this is one of two ways, press the TV/VCR button on the VCR, or simply turn off the VCR to let the signal pass through.
