Hi how unfortunate.. It think it maybe possible to indeed recover something worthwhile if you take it along to a professional video processing Lab. Find a reputable one and explain ya problem.. they may be able to render it to another medium like say a DVD.. and perhaps can adjust settings so that the images are resolved.. I wouldn't expect too much though.. but these days ya just never know, as some of the software and expertise is G L.

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 have a number of VHS-C tapes from my various video cameras in the early-to-mid 1990s that I'm transferring to DVD via my DVD/VCR combo device. But several of of these tapes that have the suffix...

VHS-C and S VHS-C are two different animals. Super VHS-C will have much better video resolution than standard VHS and uses better videotape. A standard VCR will not play the Super format. You need a S VHS VCR. You would need not only a S VHS VCR but also a S VHS-C adapter. Yes, Not even the adapter is the same as a standard VHS-C adapter cassette.

You can send out your few S VHS-C tapes to a video conversion service. That might be the least expensive way to get them on DVD. Otherwise you could look on for either a compatible camcorder (S VHS-C) or the S VHS VCR and the S VHS-C adapter. is one video conversion service that should be able to get your tapes on DVD for you. You could also look locally for a video service that does conversions to DVD.

Cannot view tapes. Picture fuzzy, interference lines on screen.

Well I have heard that sometimes the tape inside of the videocastettes that show the pictures on the screen wears out over time periods and from rewinding and fastforwarding so many times or the old age and useage so you could get the video castette tapes fixed but its not worth it now you should buy a DVD player because they are better and have less problems and most VHS tapes are on DVD too. Or check to see if any other devices are on at the same time.

VHS code compatibility

The video standard in Japan is PAL while it is NTSC here in the USA. You should be able to locate a VCR than can play both. If you'd rather not purchase a new VCR, some locations that create DVDs from VHS tapes can usually also read PAL tapes.

I'm guessing the "black thing in side" is referring to the actual tape itself- ribbon like which can be spooled out of the tape case. If so, then your VCR may have a mechanical problem of some sort, which results in a "no tape transport" or "no tape takeup" problem. If the latter, the right reel (takeup reel) is not being driven. Older VCRs often used a small rubber rimmed drive mechanism to drive this reel. Newer VCRs (10 years old or less) pretty much use a gear drive. Something may be broken here, or perhaps the gear is stuck. This gear assembly has to swivel back and forth, from left for rewind, to right for takeup or fast-forward. Unfortunately, you can't see the gear once the tape is in the machine, at least not from the topside. Suggestion: Take the top cover of VCR off, look for this gear, and see if it swivels freely, look for broken gear teeth.
