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.

Trying to copy vcr tapes onto a dvd and it will not let me...says protected? how?


If the tapes are commercial type movies being bought at a store some time ago, the system will detect it as copy right protected and will not let you make a copy. I've had the problem in the past many times, but if the tape is a home made movie taken with a video camera, it should let you copy it. Some video to pc software does this even with homemade video movies, very frustrating and annoying some times.

I've tried to clean the VCR heads with a cleaning tape , but I still only get snow when I play a tape, the audio is good.


The best solution is to take the top cover off the video and give it a really good clean. Get some Servisol Video 40 to spray on. Clean every surface the tape touches. You can use a cotton bud to get into tricky places. It will take longer to clean if the video is in the home of someone who smokes. Cleaning tapes never do a good job, if the video hasn't been cleaned before.

I have many home movies stored on 8mmHi-8 video camcorder cassettes. When I go to play them back in my new video camera, all I see and here is fuzz. It is all grey. The movies did record years ago, for I...


I would beg, borrow, rent a hi8 camcorder or player and try a second cam to see if it's the tape or the camera.
If it's the camera then you'lll still be able to off load your movies, but if your tapes don't play on the second machine, you're probably out of luck.
Try a second camera!
