The record-play switch may not be fully changing back to the Play position. Look for a bind in the mechanism that moves the switch.

How to dub tape to tape

Hi Dale,

You're kind of light on details of the equipment you're going to use - so the best I can do is provide generic instructions. You'll need two devices - one must be able to perform playback for source media and the other for recording or copying duties. Inspect the jacks provided on the rear of both units. Most provide standard RCA type "Phono" jacks for left and right audio channels. Connect a stereo patch cable (with plugs that match the jacks of the playback and recording devices) between the left and right OUTPUT (or "PLAY") jacks on the source device and the left and right INPUT (or "RECORD") jacks on the recording device. Insert the source tape, cd, album, etc. in the device that will playback the original and insert a high quality blank media into the device that will provide recording capabilities. Begin playing the source. Set options such as tape bias, Dolby Noise Reduction, etc. on both source and recording devices to match media in each. Advance the playback source to a point that contain the loudest sections. Set recoding levels by monitoring the VU meters on the recoding device and vary the input adjustment levels so that only the loudest prortions of the program just begin to briefly "flirt" with the 0Db or red zone of the meter. Signals that cause the meter to indicate into this area and beyond begin to overload the amount of information that can be recorded on the blank media and often result in muddy audio quality during playback, later. You should also record the same section repeatedly with differnt options (bias, noise reduction, etc.) to actually hear the difference to determine which sounds best to you. Once levels are set, queue the playback device and start recording. In the case of tape, allow enough recording time to let the leader section of the tape to pass beyond the recording heads for several seconds or more. Once the desired amount of silence has elapsed, play the source program. Allow it to run to completion using both sides in the case of tape and then playback the entire new recording to make sure it recorded without any issues.

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 8mm Analog... 2 Problems, maybe more unknown at this time:

This does require disassembly to remedy the problem. There are various possible fixes. The most prevelant I have seen is cold solder connections of the board connector for the fpc cable from the top operation switch block ass'y. All you need is someone who can handle this task, like a professional. The controls that you are experiencing problems with are all linked with one cable and connector. One bad solder joint can cause serveral operation faults. Good Luck, magic seadog

Cant playback tape

Videos recorded on one camcorder very seldom play back in another, due to the internal codes put on the tape by the original machine.

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....

When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian

Playback Problem

open the recorder, 4 screws at each corner, wipe the playing head and the voice reccognition head, to the right of the playing head head with a baby wipe, you will be amiazed what **** comes off it. DON'T scrub it just wipe lightly, spin the playing head so it's clean. If you have a lint free cloth ( a glasses cleaning cloth you get in the case is brilliant) Try the tape (before you put it in make sure everything is DRY!) and your problem should be solved. It worked for me! and that came from a TV engineer

What is the cue/f play/erase button on the top

When in RECORD, pressing the 'Cue' button will put a tone on the tape. This is used on the transcriber's machine to identify different jobs and such.

When in PLAY, pressing the 'F Play' button will change the playback speed to 1.5.

If you hold the 'ERASE' button and hold the portable in REWIND, it'll erase the tape while it's rewinding.

Hope this helps...

VCR tape playback not good

Check your "tracking" If the tape played fine in the old machine, then tracking is the answer, provided that the new machine records good.
