Question about Panasonic Projection Televisions
I get sound but only static (snowstorm) for the picture on my NV-VP31EB VCR
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.
