    There is no picture and no sound when the VHS tape is inserted.

    Despite checking I have connected the cables correctly, I am unable to play or record VHS tapes on my Samsung DVDV6800. When I insert a tape, there is no picture and the VCR stops and ejects the tape.

    There is nothing wrong with the tapes as I have been able to play them on other VHS recorder. I think the problem is with the Samsung DVDV6800.

There should be a button that changes the player from dvd to vcr. DVD/VCR
If you've pressed this button and you still are unable to play,fastforward,or rewind the tape; Then the player's motor is shot.

If the tape is faulty to make it proper just try this Take a good tape of little value. For instance a promotional tape. Open both the good and bad tape. Discard the actual tape of the VHS cass. that works. Transplant the tape from the defective cass. in the working housing. And presto, one restored VHS cass. (if the actual tape is damaged byond repair this will not solve your problem).

    You are right, problem i with Samsung DVDV6800 VHS Mechanism and it looks like that VHS tape is not being loaded completely due to some mechanical misalignment. System control chip waits for a while for loading of tape and then unload it to eject due to error.
    Samsung DVDV6800 should be checked by local qualified tech or if it is under warranty then call Samsung guys to fix it.
    This is not user level repair.

8mm JVC tapes put into a VHS tape that will play on a combined TV and VCR. Please, please, I need your help! Found tapes from 15 years ago.


You need an 8mm player or the camera that recorded the tapes. Connect the video and audio from the 8mm player/camera to a VHS recorder. Put the 8mm on play and the VHS on record.

I've been unable to play several bought VHS tapes of films, though oddly,...


Vcr's commonly get dirty heads that cause a blue or snowy screen and no sound in some cases. In my experience the rental tapes were common point of trouble especially when you consider the amount of machines that were deployed in use back in those days. Today people run into less issues because they have there own collection and put them to good use. In order to deal with some people's problems there are three approaches to cleaning heads, the first option is to use a wet tape with the provided fluid usually two or three drops will do and run it for ten to twenty seconds. The second approach is use a dry tape with same amount of time as outlined above. The third approach is get a blank store bought tape "T120 2hours" set the vcr to sp and run the tape from beginning to end, this is a good way if you want do more of a deep clean to remove difficult dirty particles that refuse give way. I find the dry tape will give less problems when cleaning and less chance of shredding and easier for people who don't like taking vcr's apart.

Toshiba dvr670ku - vhs tape won't play, shuts recorder off


look to see if tape will fully load and if FF or REWIND work, if not a transport problem, drive mechanism not moving the tape, unit will sense this and shut unit off----even a problem in the loading mechanism for the VHS tape not loading the tape all the way will do the same thing.

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?


Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.

My JVC DR-MV150B plays prerecorded VHS tapes fine.


Try opening the front hatch of the tape by pressing the small, square button on the right or left (short) side of the tape. Check the black tape inside for any marks, dirt, scratches, tears, etc. If the tape is fine then your unit needs to be cleaned with a tape cleaner available at any electronics specialty or retail store. Good luck to you!

Tapes not playing


Hey do the tapes play at all? sometimes some tapes recorded
on other machines won't play on others. maybe you need to adjust the tracking on the VCR you are playing it on. If the tape
was recorded on a VCR that is misaligned it might not play back
on another VCR. Also the tape may have been recorded on a
super VHS VCR in et (extended definition) mode if so they won't play on just any VCR. If the picture looks scrambled like a
premium channel on analog cable then it's probably recorded in et.
and if its recorded on super VHS tape it may eject out of your VCR.
They don't make these S-VHS vcrs anymore but people still
have them around. There is also Digital VHS they're not
compatible with VHS either. A VHS recorded in et mode will
play on some more expensive vcrs it should say so on the box
or instructions.

Adapter question


There are no such adapters that would allow 8mm, Hi8 and Mini DV tapes to be played in a VHS VCR. Only the old VHS-C tapes can fit and play in an adapter. There are several reasons why 8mm (or Hi8 and miniDV tapes) cannot be physically played in a VHS VCR: 1. 8mm (Hi8, miniDV) is a different format with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with current VHS technology. 2. 8mm/Hi8 tapes are 8mm wide (miniDV is 6mm wide), while VHS tape is 1/2" wide, making it impossible for a VHS video head to read the taped information correctly. 3. 8mm/Hi8/miniDV tapes are recorded and played at different speeds than VHS, so even if the tapes could physically fit into a standard VHS VCR, the VCR still couldn't play back the tapes at their correct speeds. 4. 8mm/Hi8/minDV audio is recorded differently than VHS. 8mm/Hi8 audio is recorded in AFM HiFi mode, while miniDV audio is recording in 12-Bit or 16-Bit PCM digital audio format. So, even if the video could be played back in a VHS VCR, the audio could not be read properly. 5. 8mm/Hi8 video is of higher resolution than VHS and is recorded in a different bandwidth length (miniDV video is recorded digitally), so once again, a standard VCR still could not read the information correctly, even if the tape could fit into a VCR.
