The static you are seeing is the lack of capstan servo lock. Notice if you adjust the tracking the condition does not change. If it is an old mechanical switch VCR, it could be as simple as a dirty record/play switch. If it has belts replace the capstan belt. Other than that, you are looking at an open capacitor between the control head and the capstan motor servo. Much more difficult to troubleshoot without service information.

Awa dvd vcr player


The VCR may need a head cleaning. All it takes is a little oxide from a worn tape to clog up the heads and cause the trouble. You can try a head cleaning cassette (if you can still find one), but it's better to open the case and clean the entire tape path with the proper cleaning fluid and swabs. You used to be able to buy all the supplies and instructions in a kit at Radio Shack and other stores. If you can't find what you need locally, there are certainly online sources.

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.

Some tapes will start and immediately shut down


the vcr is on threshold of belt life. try replacing (or cleaning with alcohol) the take-up reel belt. The vcr has a built-in time-out feature to protect the video tape. if it takes too long for things to happen, shut-down occurs.
