Question about Emerson EWD2202 DVD Player/VCR
I've had this unit for a few years and it's never done this before. Whenever I try to play a VHS tape it's in black and white. I've tried adjusting the unit, my TV, everything. The dvd player and tv are still in color but the VHS tapes are always black and white. Does anyone know what to do?
Simple easy solution - clean the heads. it's amazing what a _little_ dirt will do.

The tapes are B/W or one of the playback video heads is not making contact with the tape. The video head may need to be adjusted. You can take it in to get it fixed or buy a new one. The unit today is worth around $25-$30.

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.
Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played
