Question about Toshiba SD-V392 DVD Player/VCR

3 Answers

No picture even though DVD/tape is playing

One day it worked fine and the next day when I put in a DVD, I could not get a picture. It wouldn't work with a tape either. I unplugged and replugged, but nothing happened. DVD's and videos are playing as the counter moves, but still no picture.

I reported a similar problem I had with my Toshiba DVR 15 also a VHS/DVD combo and when looking at a solution for a similar problem on a LG model someone had suggested deactivating the Progressive Scan. I tried that and would you believe it my picture was back for both DVDs and VHS tapes. So my problem is solved. See if it works for you.

Insert a VHS tape, hear sound, no picture? DVD working fine, both sound & picture. What am I doing wrong?


Likely a damaged video tape got in the unit and blocked the video heads--once blocked no picture but sound will be the case---the heads can be manually cleaned if you know how---The real issue will be to locate which tape was in the unit when this happened--clear the heads and put it back and right back to no image......

Cleaning tapes are only slightly effective--most shops (if you can find one who even works on this gear) will not charge much to clean the heads.

I have the Philips DVP3150V/37 DVD Player / VCR Combo. The DVD player works fine, but when putting in a VCR tape, it plays for a few seconds then shuts itself off. Any suggestions on what to to?


The 3150 has two belts or bands that can slip when old, just like the old days. One is for loading the cassette and the other is for providing take-up torque for the tape. Have also seen the tape loading arms get out of sync and don't put the tape around the heads..... working on one now but dont have a fix yet..it has the loading problem.

I should clean the video head with Servisol Video 40. One of your old tapes perhaps deposited oxide all over it!

Go video VR4940 VCR video recording has sound but no picture


You can try cleaning the video tape heads. The vcr has 2 different heads. One for audio which is fixed and a drum head for video with 2 heads on it that rotate. The best way to clean them is to take a lint free cloth ad wrap it tightly around your finger. Put some alcohol on the cloth and place it on the drum. Then rotate the drum as you hold your finger against the drum. DO NOT move your finger up and down as you can brake the head off. The other option is to go buy a head cleaning stick. It's a piece of chamie on a plastic tongue depressor. I've cleaned hundreds of them with my finger though. You can clean the whole tape path with the rag. Good Luck.

Picture and sound is skipping or stuttering during playback. It happens when playing any video.


This was often caused by mixing brands of tape. Do not use head cleaners more than absolutely necessary. More than half a dozen times or so, and heads are toast.

Use quality tapes of the same make/length, from new, and you will be fine. (the coatings on the tapes vary, and can/did interact with each other.)

Random no audio


I have had this happen with this particular brand frequently. I have it plugged in to a power "strip" or surge protector. I find that if I turn the strip off then on again, it resets and fixes the problem.
