I put the VHS tape in and all I see is fuzz I can here the movie
VHS tapes have two tracks One a Video and the other Audio. The read Heads align with these tracts and transmit the data to the appropriate electronic converters; one is the Audio Amp. and the other the Video Controller. If one or the other is defective or coated with material transferred from the surface of the tape; that magnetic head cannot pick up the data.
The first thing to do is Clean the Heads. With a cue-tip saturated with rubbing alcohol; (Not dripping wet) gently ride back and forth over the magnetic head inside of the player. Do this a few times until there is no sign of blemish on the surface and when DRY, insert a tape and see if that fixed the problem. Often time...the OXIDE from a tape collect on the heads and must be removed. This cleaning method will NOT hurt the player at all. Just be certain to Unplug the player when doing this proicess.
