Look for tape residues on the head drum (metal cilinder inside). Clean it with extreme care or use a cleaning tape. If any tape get stuck inside recently the ground shaft might be bended and it causes grainy pictures.

Your unit has it seems to have developed a video problem. it could be in the video switching IC or the video processor. Its going to need a trained technician, who knows how to use an ocilliscope to find the video problem.. Good Luck

On some of the DVD/VCR combo units, the VCR output is only available through the RF jack (channel 3), standard video1.gif (yellow) RCA jack and S-VIDEO jack. If you are using the Component jacks, the DVD side will work but the VCR will not. This is because the quality of video recorded on VHS tapes is so much lower than component quality video.
Thank you for rating this solution.

SOURCE: 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.

Can't dub from VHS to DVD. Tried 16x DVD+R, which the book says should work.


Yea, I tried this to. The movie people, in their infinite wisdom, put an encoding on the tapes so you cannot make a copy of "their" work.

You should be getting an error like this or at the least that the recording will not start.

I gave up since there are only a very few that this will work for.

VCR DVD Recorder not dubbing


I called the manufacturer and realized I was using the wrong type of recordable DVD disc to dub to. Non copy protected VHS tapes dub just fine as long as I'm using the proper disc.
