NEC VH-605 VCR - Very Snowy Picture

I have an NEC VH-605 VCR. It has been working fine until recently. But for the past few3 eeks the picyure is very snowy and when I tried to tune the tracking nothing matters. The diagnostics states that the head is ok. What else could be causing the snow on the played video image. I would highly appreciate your help. Thanks a lot for your help.

Video head needs thorough cleaning. If no head cleaner, then run a few long tapes through it in the fast scan mode since the tape itself is abrasive and will over time remove debris from the heads. If that does not do it, try a chemical cleaner to dissolve the material.

SOURCE: snowy picture, are heads dirty if so will head cleaner work, could there be another problem other than dirty heads?

if it is your heads, a head cleaner tape slowly grinds down your heads. Abrasion bad. Take to shop and have them clean heads with solvent and soft cloth or Q-tips. Might not be your heads, much electronics, but sounds like might be.

SOURCE: Recording very snowy and blurred.

If recordings are only blurry and snowy on playback on camcorder, but are OK on a different camcorder or on computer, then the problem is a dirty magnetic head. Use a mini-dv head cleaner tape. If recordings are blurred even on pc or on a different camera, then there is a fault. Faulty CCD sensor, faulty digital board, problem with internal ribbon connector, and dirty or defective lens assembly can cause this kind of problem.

The VCR component used to work fine, but now the video is totally snowy (the sound is fine). In the past, I have solved this problem with other VCR's by cleaning them with a head cleaning cassete. ...


Careful cleaning of the VCR tape head with alcohol and a soft cloth (q-tips sometimes leave fuzz behind) may help, but you could have a problem in the circuit that switches from VCR to Tuner.

Snowy picture on VCR with only certain channels


In all likelyhood, you have a bad ground somewhere in the cable. Try other channels through the VCR. If the ground is the problem, there will be a cluster of channels that are snowy with the rest being clear. Check the cable itself and all of the connectors along it.

If the cable and connectors are good, the tuner or power supply of the VCR could be faulty and cause this as well.

Daewoo combo - DVD is fine, sound works but not picture appears


The video heads have been clogged. You can try a cleaning tape, but those often do not work. If that fails, you will need to have a professional clean the heads and verify the head alignment. This should not cost more than $50 or so.

yes it could ba the cable itself even, but i suspect more the tuner circuit or tuner itself may have bad solder connections. Here is another test for you to try, plug another dvd or vcr, or xbox etc. into the back, using one odf the inputs. See if this works like the built in dvd. if so it will be more likely bad connections in the tuner or surrounding circuit. good luck.
