SOURCE: Sharp VCR fault

The video head probably needs cleaning. Remove the top cover, and using a lint free cloth (like maybe a dishtowel) moistened by a bit of rubbing alcohol, or a specific for head cleaning product, clean the rotating head carefully. This head is about 1.75 inch diameter and sits toward the back of the VCR mechanism. It is motor driven and will rotate at a carefully regulated speed when a tape is inserted.

Note: Most late VCRs state they have an automatic head clean feature, but it doesn't always get everything, especially if you have a tape that is loosing oxide badly.

I suggest you get the Tape path cleaned up. Could be dirty video heads or a dirty Control Head. Use a good 'wet' type cleaning cassette.

SOURCE: Blue Screen

That means you need a cleaning. Unscrew and take off the VCR cover. See the 2 (maybe 4) little windows on the outside of the cylinder head? (round metal thing on a tilt that spins) Those are the video heads and are very easily clogged with contamination causing loss of video. Take a piece of leather the size of a postage stamp, wet it with a little alcohol and just hold it on the side of the cylinder head while you spin the cylinder gently with the other hand to GENTLY wash these heads. Don't move the leather at all - especially up and down as the heads will easily break off. Let them dry for a minute and try to watch a tape. May need to do this several times to get a good picture. Can squirt alcohol directly on the heads and really soak them if needed. Last resort is to use something really strong like acetone, but beware this will also melt any plastic parts it touches.
Hope Ya Fix it!

SOURCE: Cannot bring up my VCR's On-Screen Menu

You'll need to unplug the unit, wait a minute and then plug it back in. This happens to me on occasion.

Your VCR has to be on the same channel as the switch on the back of you cable box.

I have a Mitsubishi HS-U448 VCR. It plays my VHS tapes fine, but I can't get a blue screen when I turn it on. When I press 'play', the movie looks great. Once I hit 'stop', it'


It sounds like it is set to a TV station and since all the analogue stations have now gone you will only get static. Without a remote you wan't be able to switch it. I suggest you either shop around for a replacement (try Curry's partmaster) or use a universal one.

Rolling picture and blue screen


According to my Satellite provider tech support. More and more channels are being encoded so that recording equipment cannot capture the signals to prevent piracy. I know the premium channels use this technique now. I would call and ask tech support if there is any copy restrictions in place that would affect your VCR recording before doing any further trouble shooting on the VCR. If you can play pack a prerecorded movie fine with your VCR then it should also record fine. Also try watching the channel through the VCR tuner and I bet you will see the same pattern. The VCR can only record the signal it is given.

Hope this helps you,
Ron

Sansui DVD/VCR remote control issue, VCR works/DVD does not-black


There should be a DVD/VCR button on the remote control which will toggle the machine from one playback source to another. If she has pressed the VCR button then the machine will only playback tapes & not show DVD's. Press this button & the DVD's should play. If you look closely at the front window of the machine it will show what mode it is in ie VCR or DVD, set this for the DVD to get it to play.

VHS-C tape jumpy when playing back


My apologies, I overlooked the "-C" in your post.

This problem is due to a type ofcopy protection built into vcr's.

"Macrovision" copy-protection is merely a weakening of a particular part of the signal that makes up the picture and was primarily intended to prevent people from copying videotapes. I imagine almost everyone's seen it but probably didn't know what they were seeing: the resulting picture is a little jittery and is in black-and-white or alternates between black-and-white and color. The reason you're seeing a blue screen is because modern televisions, in the absence of a signal or a weak signal, will just show a blue screen instead of snow or a very poor picture. As mentioned above, you can get around Macrovision by inserting into your connections a signal amplifier that specifically amplifies the portion of the signal that Macrovision diminishes.

Problems with tv / vcr


sounds like the video cable is bad from the vcr to the tv, or is not connected to the same input as the audio.
check to see if they are the same.

Not likely. They probably just need to be cleaned and re-alligned. Rates vary, but our shop charges $20 to do that.
