Audio heads and video heads are seperate on VCR"s.....the video head might be extremely dirty and not able to pick up information from the tape..this requires major cleaning...manually..not with cleaning tapes....the guides might need to be re-adjusted..mechanically....or worst case is the little ferrite beads of the pick up heads on the video cylinder are no longer there, have broken off. in any case, the machine needs to be opened for service....cleaning the heads manually, you can do yourself with some paper such as note pad paper and acetone. acetone cleans very well, you spin the cylinder by hand while holding the acetone soaked paper against the heads. you might need to repeat this a few times with fresh paper depending on how much dirt comes off....good luck

Audio Problems playing VHS tapes with Denon AVR 1910


Did it EVER work as expected with VCR audio through the HDMI or are we working through that right now assuming it can?

I don't have a detailed manual, but the rear panel clearly shows some analog-only outputs (and NO digital ones) for the section called DVD/VCR. Internally, I'm sure there are proper analog-digital-converters for recording VHS to the native DVD-R, but VHS VCR's are NOT inherently digital audio devices so I'm pretty sure you need to run an analog RCA pair for the VHS video.

Only dvd plays properly but vhs will not show picture.


Most likely you have the dvd part connected through component or svideo cables. Despite the fact that this is one unit, like other vcr/dvd combo units it acts as two separate units in the same box. The vcr will probably not play through those cables. As you have audio coming through I'd imagine that the audio is connected using red and white composite cable. Connect the video on the vcr side with composite yellow cable or run direct to tv with a coaxial cable.

Can only get DVD audio when hooking it up to Goldstar VCR...


The DVD must be connected with the RCA jacks-plugs [usually black & red] to the INPUT of the VCR, not to the RF connector. You must press the VCR\TV button to VCR so that the VCR takes control.When you place a DVD movie or AUDIO program it could be copied to the VCR. or played through the VCR.

Getting a dvd player to record vhs to dvd


The RF converter takes the Red/White/Yellow as INPUTS and converts them to either channel 3 or 4. You need to go the other way. You need a tuner or another VCR to convert from RF (channel 3 or 4) to a standard AV signal (Red/White/Yel).

Video image problem- Blue screen?


If your unit is fairly new,your VCR part might be the problem.Take it back!
If you have this unit for awhile,two things:
1. You need a professional A/V repair guy to clean up and check your VCR head.
2. The rental VHS tape is dirty.
Good luck!
