Thank you.  The machine has a reset button that brings the counter back to zero. Still not sure it is working right but I'll see as I transcribe my tapes.

You may think the tape has an hour of material on it, but the machine thinks otherwise. Either it didn't actually get recorded past the 11 minute point, or something erased the tape past that point. There's nothing to play after that time, so you're seeing the snowy screen. On most VCRs, the tape counter only works when a valid video signal is detected, which is why it's not advancing as the tape plays. There's nothing you can do to recover whatever was on the tape, so I hope it wasn't anything important.

Brother ml100 standard - eraser tape will not erase, nor will it rotate to more tape. There is sufficient tape on the roll. Thank you


do you have it past the leader ( the red part)? there is a sticky place just before the actual corr. tape starts. you need to pull this loose before you put the tape on. it should turn counter clock wise. the tape should all be on the round spool, not the spool with the knob. if this info doesn't help - let me know. never seen the corr. tape stick so that you can't turn it by hand.

No playback on DCR-TRV103


In playback mode the lCD displays the battery time, hi8 symbol and the tape counter. all the functions work the tape will play, rewind, fast forward. The screen stays blank on playback and the tape counter stays at 0:00:00 eventhough I can see the tape turning. I also hooke the camera to my tv and I got no picture.
