Looks like a great brand with good features for the price.
  1. Connect Video & Audio Cables to a video signal source
  2. Connect Power Cable
  3. Turn on VCR.
  4. Insert a blank tape in the VCR.
  5. Note - A Broken Tab on the back of tape will prevent recording. This is called Write Protection.
  6. Cover the tab hole if you want to record over old video.
  7. Press RECORD on the VCR remote control.
  8. After a minute, press Stop, then PLAY to see recording.
  9. Cheers

Our Sony Video cassette recorder model SLV_N750 won't play??? The tape is going into play, but the reels are not turning. The VCR starts with a snowy picture and guickly stops and won't play?

The problem is the idler assembly or the black square belt that drives it, this will cause the vcr to shutdown preventing tape transport. The vcr will need to be dismantled for repair, I recommend a tv technician to check your machine with an estimate.

Sony SlV-SE730 VCR video inserted wrong way

Unplug the VCR.
Take the cover off by taking out the small screws on the sides and on the back that hold the cover on.
With the cover off you should be able to gently move the tape back out.
Things could be damaged......after the tape is out, you should try it first with a tape that could possibly be damaged during testing and do not touch anything inside while plugged in to power during testing with the cover off!
Now......if it is not a working VCR are in luck.
There are garage sales every weekend...and almost every one has a VCR for almost nothing....some like new.....and boxes and boxes of tapes/movies for very little money too.
