Question about Quasar VHQ940 VHS VCR
I have Quaser VHQ940, its 7 years old. I have been using it with any problem. Last week when i turned on the VCR it only has audio but no video. I used the head cleaning cassette but no help.
Has anyone come across this issue and have found any resolution. Or is the life of the VCR over.
Any help is higly appreciated.
The video head may still be dirty even after using the cleaning tape. Take the top cover off. The video head will be the rotating drum about 1.5 inches diameter. Use a lint free cloth- dish towel etc, moistened with rubbing alcohol, and rotate the head a few turns. The actual pickup surfaces are at the bottom of this drum unit- you can see them- there will be at least two.
Anyway, if you look at your cloth, and see some black material, indeed the head was dirty. Let the head dry for several minutes, then do a trial play again. If your picture returns, then good- if not try cleaning a couple more times. Heads do eventually wear out, and other problems can also cause the no video.
