The tape you were watching was probably worn and left a little of its oxide surface on the VCR's heads. This is pretty common, especially if you ever play rented tapes or tapes that have been around for a while. Plays great, then the next time, no picture.

A head cleaning cassette may solve the problem for you. Make sure you get a wet-type cleaner. Radio Shack has one on their website, and you can probably find one locally. If the VCR hasn't recently (or ever) had a good professional cleaning, it might be time for one. The whole tape path (everything the tape touches, and not just the heads) need to be cleaned and a cleaner tape can't do that. Video rental shops used to offer cleanings. Maybe one in your area still does or there's a shop you can take it to. We charged $20 some years back when I worked at a shop. Today it might be cheaper to replace the VCR than to clean it.

Our Hitachi MX818E VCR is suddenly not playing videos. We can hear the sound however. We do not have the user manual anymore. Thank you, Ann


a common problem is rental videos that have been damaged in the first few feet of the tape by some other vcr's defective drive mechanism that "eats"the tape..What happens is the particles of the damaged tape clog the video heads in your machine,which have gaps in the millionths of an inch.Put a brand new tape in the machine and let it play for a half hour or so and it will usually clear itself.If that does not do it,insert a head clening tape and a couple drops of cleaning fluid and run it through.The newer machines will show a blue screen if there is no video information present.However,if you put it on forward search,it overrides that feature and you will see a snowy picture from a good tape,if one video head is clogged and the other is working.There are 2 video heads on a rotating head.it spins at 1800rpm and that is the whirring sound you hear when play is pressed.If both heads are clogged,you will see a snowy screen and no picture at all.A 4 head machine has 2 heads for slp or 2 hour speed and the other 2 heads are used for lp and slp.A hifi vcr has 2 more heads,which are used for the hifi audio,a total of 6 heads.The stationary playback head has a control signal for tape speed,and regular audio,mono or stereo.

Static when connecting more than one audio input to amplifier


OK. Both are attached via analog cables to different inputs so what you're hearing is NOT actually audio program-related but more likely some kind of grounding or shielding issue.

Lower the volume then see what happens if you...

...float the laptop so it's running on its battery?

...reattach the laptop power but rotate the AC power plug 180 degrees?

...rotate the CD power connector?

...disconnect only the laptop audio?

...disconnect only the CD audio?

Something should change the symptom.

This is a relative simplerepair for any audio shop. The belts and/or idler have dried up and are slipping. The whirring you hear is the motor spinning, but the tape hubs are not turning. When in play mode, the take-up side is not turning. There are safety circuits inside that detect that the take-up side is not turning and that circuit stops the tape to prevent it from collecting inside the unit and damaging the tape. Plan on $15 or so for all the rubber parts for this repair.

White Noise Sound


Your problem is somewhere between the tuner and video detector circuit. The signal entering your TV carries: video,red color,and blue color as well as sychronizing pulses for color and horizontal and vertical deflection ( actually vertical sync. is derived from horizontal sync.) along with burst pulses to synchronize the color. After all these, the sound is an fm signal entwined with a pilot signal for stereo audio. WHAT a mess! After the audio passes through all this, it is detected and sent to the audio processor. If any frequency has drifted away from it's value then you loose the sound. SO... your problem could be in any of the tuned circuits or in the audio processor IC (chip). Any component changing value could creat this problem. Most likely the audio processor IC. You'd need to have the set checked out by a tech to find your problem. Stargazer
