Here are replacement parts for the RT660A/60 available through time-lapse supply: http://www.timelapsesupply.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=VAR_VCR_PARTS

I hope it helps as I could not find a new VCR of the same model for sale on auction sites.

You just have a dirty main video head. You can get a head cleaner tape or you can buy a tin of Servisol Video 40.
To clean with the Servisol, remove the top cover of the VCR. You will see a big shiny video head. Spray that head with the cleaner. You can also wipe it over with a cotton bud if it is very dirty. It's a good idea to clean all the surfaces that the video tape touches. If you don't know which, when you first take off the cover with the VCR on power, put a video tape in a press play then watch where the tape runs. Eject the tape, then clean with the spray and a cotton bud. You can even spray the cotton bud and then clean with that if you are not happy just spraying into the unit.
Make certain that the sprayed areas are dry before trying a video. It dries very quick anyway.

Where can i get help for my Sharp VHS Model VC-AA350, needs a new head,want new spares


I'm sorry to say this but many video heads are more expensive than buying a new machine. But you might get lucky. I did see some parts for sharp at Curry's Partmaster. And you can also try Grandata.
Also try CPC, Willow Vale Electronics.

I have a Sony VCR. Model SLV-N51. I record a lot of television shows on new Sony VHS tapes and when I play back the tape the picture scrambles every so often. When I rewind it back to where the...


First of all I want you to check the tape inside it's case as soon as the problem occurs. Stop it and eject. You'll find a button on the side of the VHS tape, press it and you should be able to lift the flap. Look at the tape it should be smooth and shiny. If it is there's nothing causing damage. If you see any damage then the mechnism is causing it.
If that is good (which I think it will be) I want you to take off the top cover of the VCR and with some Servisol Video 40 spray, blast all the surfaces that the tape comes into contact with. You can wipe them too with cotton buds. Give the heads special attention. Once done leave for 30 mins and try it out.
I think the problem might be dirt that the head cleaner tape couldn't shift. The sound dipping being the hi-fi sound dropping out reverting back to the mono sound head. When you rewind the video tape acts like a cloth for an instance, hence the better performance.

PHILIPS VCR WILL NOT RECORD PICTURE, BUT SOUND QUALITY EXCELLENT


Provided that you have given a good confirmed signal into the VCR or is using the tuner to record. If so then the fault is within the VCR recording biasing of the signal. The rrecorrded signals ahve to eb written to the tapes after mixing up the spectrum of information that comes along. failure of theprocessing IC must be the fault to this and will require expert testing within the VCR for signal trace before we can pinpoint. I hope you will need expert help to confirm onthe head amp section/ video processing stages preferably with the manual in hand. Helpful to decide? Good day

Just pick up an old used VCR that has a tuner built in. Only the very new ones don't have them (due to the DTV switch coming up in February).

Error 2 and error 3 and error 4 are tech codes.
and if your unit won't reset, you can take it to your local
electronic repair shop. I had error 3 on my Phillips,
and he went to the PM webpage,researched it, and fixed it perfectly for $39.00 total. STILL WORKING!
He said it was some little thing to replace that took him 15 minutes.
If you don't want to buy one of the REALLY cheaply made vcrs or DVD/vcr combos that are out now, it worth a little phone time to find
an electronics repair shop. Or the new DVD recorders with vcr combos are very good, but sturdy ones are expensive.

Philips VR540 video cylinder motor slowly go round. Why ?


Nope, the only thing you can do is make sure the cylinder motor has the proper B+ on it and replace the cylinder motor if the voltage is correct, but to tell you the truth a new unit would most likely be less expensive the a nes cylinder motor. hope this helps. Good Luck
