    I cleaned the heads with special wipes and alcohol by holding the wipes against the heads and turning the reel counter clockwise. Still to many white streaks across the screen during playback at fast forward. Tried the same tape in another older Samsung vcr and there are no white streaks on fast forward. I believe the headsa may be damaged on this vcr which I purchased second hand. Thanks. P.S. Tried to reply to your suggestion on the "Reply Form" but there is very little space (characters) to leave a proper reply.

    I should have mentioned that the picture is perfect on regular play.

    Before righting off the heads try cleaning them with Servisol Video 40. You might have to do this several times. Also don't forget to clean all the places where the tape touches inside the unit. Another issue could be the fast forward drive wheels. If these have tyres or belts connected to them to you might need to replace them.

If these have just appeared then it could be dirt on the video head, but most videos have noise lines on video tapes during FF and RW and there's nothing wrong with them.

SAmsung has two white lines across screen with no picture


If the 2 white lines are in the centre of the screen it sounds like you have a fault called 'field collapse' . The 'x' or horizontal circuit on the tv deflects the beam across the screen which in your case is ok because the line runs across the screen ok. The 'y' or field circuit on the tv deflects the beam down the screen. Without a circuit diagram for your tv i cannot point to individual components.

The following solution was posted on Whirpool.

Turn on the unit with no disc in the unit. The No Disc message should be visible
Press the following keys in this sequence
Repeat (not the A-B Repeat, just the plain Repeat)
Fast rewind button (just below the Disc Menu button)
Play button
Down button
Down button
Right Button

The number 9 should now appear towards the left of the screen.

Open then close the disc draw

Turn off the unit and then on again. You should now be able to play DVDs from any region

VCR problems on my new Hannspree HDTV


It is unlikely that you will be able to solve this issue. This is due to the way a digital TV works.

The output from your VCR is an analogue signal - a constantly varying electrical signal carrying information about the picture. This is interspersed with a synchronisation signal that tells the TV where the start of each frame begins within the stream. With me so far?

When you fast-forward a tape, two things happen: the sync signals appear faster than expected and bars of static noise appear across the picture (I won't go into the technical details as to why!)

On an old analogue TV this isn't an issue - The way they work means that they will display some sort of picture. In other words, whatever signal is coming in (no matter how corrupted) it will show it on the screen.

Digital TVs are different. They have to read all the information for each frame and process it before it is displayed. When you fast-forward the tape (and the sync signals are at the wrong speed and interspersed with noise) a digital TV gets 'confused' - It cannot make sense of the signal, so ignores it, acting as if there is no signal at all (hence the blue screen).

Most VCRs are designed to retain enough of the signal that some sort of picture can be displayed while fast-forwarding. However, because you are recording in LP mode (which effectively halves the normal speed of the tape and also reduces the quality of the recording) there just isn't enough information in what is left for a digital TV to recognise as a 'proper' signal.

Your only option is to revert back to SP mode, or treat yourself to a new digital recorder :-)

Hope this helps,

Matt.
