Blue screen when using VCR function

Recently, after not having used it for more than two years, I discovered that when trying to record on vcr, the lcd screen is blue. Closing it, I still only see blue through the viewfinder. The camera mode though, is fine, both on lcd and viewfinder. Any suggestions are welcome, else I will take it in to Sony.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A blue screen is 'video muting', the player is not getting a decent video signal and rather than display distorted / noisy video, it is muted.  Initially, has a video head cleaner been tried on the camcorder?

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

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

My VCR doesn't record from my Digital TV. It did before.


Your VCR does not have a digital tuner. If using an antenna or basic cable, you must decode the digital signal through the D/A converter first, then send the signal via the RF cable (Screw -on ) or Audio/Video RCA to the VCR. You will have to manually press record. My guess is that you were used to programming and leaving it. So, if you are/were using your VCR as a tuner to schedule recordings, it is no longer a valid option. If you have a cable or satellite box with a DVR, this is the way to go. I am not sure if anyone offers a VCR with a digital tuner. Google and discover. Unfortunately all those hours (years in some cases) we spent learning how to program our VCRs is now in vain.

Connection


This can be done. The uverse cables have to be hooked through the vcr, which must be left on all the time. Then the VCR to the uverse receiver. It's basically the same hookup as through a cable box.

Fuzzy VCR Image and Recording


Most of the time, the VCR cleaning tapes are not very good.

Take the VCR to the local TV service shop in your area, and pay them the few dollars for a proper manual cleaning.

After a few years of use, the transport may need a new pinch roller, belts, idler wheel, head cleaner sponge, and some other pieces. Most of the manufactures are no longer supplying replacement parts for VCR servicing, but the manufactures used to sell a maintenance kit for their models. This kit used to cost about $15 to $40 depending on the model of the VCR.

You can research how to do the manual cleaning yourself, but if you are not experienced you take the chance to damage your VCR. The heads, and the guide alignments are very critical. You may also need to change some parts.

If the VCR still does not perform after the cleaning, then there are fault conditions. The machine will then need proper service.
