My VCR won't work when I push play. It shows the blue screen just goes black when I push play.


It sounds like it is working, and you just weren't recording a signal. Try playing a prerecorded tape.

How to Safely Clean a Tape Video Head


If you are not getting video from a VCR, 8MM camcorder, or Digital Video recorder camcorder but get audio, do the following: <br /> 1. Use a brand new tape - right out of the package and insert it into the drive. <br /> 2. Perform a record on the tape - set it to do a RECORD (not playback). <br /> 3. Allow it to complete through the entire tape without stopping. <br /> 4. Upon completion - allow it to rewind. <br /> 5. Insert a known good prerecorded tape and play - observe the image. If it's good, then the head was just dirty and is now clean. <br /> You may perform the above as often as necessary without any damage to the device.

After recording and replaying, the picture is "sliced up". I've tried cleaning head with dry tape, seemed to help but still there. Trouble is it seems to vary each time I play the same tape.


Do not use a head cleaner - they can damage the heads. Insert a brand new high quality tape and perform a record. Let it record through the entire tape. Then, play back an original prerecorded tape and check playback.

My JVC DR-MV150B plays prerecorded VHS tapes fine.


Try opening the front hatch of the tape by pressing the small, square button on the right or left (short) side of the tape. Check the black tape inside for any marks, dirt, scratches, tears, etc. If the tape is fine then your unit needs to be cleaned with a tape cleaner available at any electronics specialty or retail store. Good luck to you!

Picture rolls and the tracking is off.


do the heads need cleaning? sounds like the heads are seriously out of alignment? take off the vcr cover get a philip scrdrv. put tape in. and play. theres an AC head just to the right of the drumhead. jiggle it around gently. u may have to adjust those 3 screws (precison) to put it back in proper adjustmant. also take the tapes u used in that vcr. open the top flap and inspect. are there marks? is there a line going the bottom portion of the tape. if so , it definitely is out of alignment.

SANSUI SC-2100 RECORDING PROBLEM


First try cleaning the heads with some electronics grade alcohol and a static free cleaning swab...although it sounds like the head may need alignment...if those two things do not work out for you, the capstan motor might be the culprit.

Memorex MVD4544 VCR will not record


Take the unit back to the store and exchange it for an other unit of the same. The likelyhood of two units not working is very slim, and good luck with your new unit.

Sharp dv-rw260h vcr/dvd combi


The tape drive and head cylinder motors are having trouble synchronizing close enough to allow the manual tracking to work. Does it work on prerecorded tapes?
Could be:
Too much drag from the tensioning gizmo. (fixable)
Dirty tape path (fixable)
Damaged tape (does it have a crease along one edge?
dragging motor (not usually fixable)
Hope Ya Fix It!

Recording problem on Sony SLV-R1000


The deck needs a good cleaning. Try using a brand new tape and run it on playback for 20 min or so. You could try using a cleaning tape, but many of them are abrasive. If this doesn't work, you need a deck re-alignment which will cost more than your set is worth.

Does it play back professionally prerecorded tapes okay? Does that VCR have a HiFi stereo option? What is the brand name and model number of the unit?
