Re: Dont see Video only Audio
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.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

So.... Who uses a VCR any more. They are ancient history.
They don't last forever so perhaps it's time to think ahead....
The modern way to Record video is to use a Hard Disk Drive Recorder rather than a VCR. They have a built in tuner and can record 2 stations at once and have a built in Electronic Program Guide. The EPG info is transmitted with the Digital TV transmission from the broadcaster.
I bought one 2 weeks ago for an old 85yo friend so he could record late night stuff and play back later. He still uses the VCR but only for old VHS Tape playback. I got him a TEAC HDR9650TS Digital Video Recorder and I picked it up new for Aus$188.

Maybe you can get a little more life out of that VCR still
if you've tried video 2 then you should hook a vcr to the tv then put the video and sound cords in the vcr. turn it on turn the tv to channel 3 and hit the vcr/tv button then the game will show up on your quaser color tv
Sounds like the video heads are worn and time to replace them. You can try Asti Magnetics. The part number you are looking for is "378". Sells for $55 plus shipping. A bit cheaper but quality parts. I've dealt with them in the past. You can decide if the VCR is worth it to repair.
Hello! You need an A/V cable (audio-video). That is a bundle of three RCA male-male cables and they are marked with yellow (video) white (Left audio) and red (Right audio) for easy identifiying. Connect either to the front or back of the VCR, make sure you have the right input selected. If you have your TV on and on the video channel you should see the movie from the camera when playing it. If you can see it then just record.
To record your VHS tapes to a computer you need either a TV-card or a digital videocam with a firewire connection.
If you have a TV card (affordable nowadays) or video capture card you can connect your old videocam directly to your pc using a S-video cable or the analog A/V cable described above.
Firewire PCI cards that is compatible with any desktop PC are not expensive these days. (if you dont allready have a built-in connection.) You will also need a "4-6" firewire cable (also called DV-firewire cable) Connect the old cam to the DV cam using one of the above cables. Connect the DV cam to the PC using the firewire cable.(You may have to set the DV cam to a "record from external source" -mode)
You will also need software to record the signal to your harddrive, there is a lot of freeware programs you can download on the internet. If you use windows you can use the "windows movie maker" software.
audio out from your tv to your reciever gives low output? how do you have everything hooked up i have vcr to tv dvd to vcr audio to my reciever and vcr tv thru piggy back plugs therefore i can only have tv audio or reciever or both
Google it. "Manual Sanyo H793" Or try using common sense and insticnts to guide you to do it yourself. You know, its usally the same, menu, presets auto manual , up-down. Or if its old there is uaually a whitr screw at the back which you turn to tune on each preset. :-)
