    I have a Canon ES8400 and when I tried to watch my old tapes all I get is a white screen with some green stripes and audio. But, when I recorded over the tape for a minute - the picture played back just fine. I am heartbroken to think somehow I have lost my old tapes.

hi there is nothing to do by yourself. you need to take your md player to the next authorized service. seems the optical device that reads the discs has worn out, compareable to turntables you need to change the `needle` ;)

Olympus DS30 voice recorder play speed issue


Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.

Vidio recorder when i record it wont play back what is recorded but it will play pre recorded tapes Is it campatable for LG television please model no VR550/07


If it plays back pre recorded tapes then there is nothing wrong with that section of the unit. Does it playback audio and not picture or does it not playback anything.
Also, when trying to playback a recording what is seen of the screen? Snow(black and white dots or wiggly picture?

The unit uses two separate circuits to record and playback tapes. Is any thing else connected to the unit while you are recording? If you are using anything plugged into other ports on the recorder it may not see the camera input causing it to not record anything..

VCR won't tape and get no playback


First check how good / bad are your recordings. Take a current / recent recording done after this problem cropped up, and play it back on another VCR - maybe a friend's. If the recording plays back badly- showing the symptoms you described, then the problem is still dirty or worn out Video Heads. If the Recording plays back perfectly on the friend's machine, but plays back badly on your machine, I still suggest that you try cleaning the Heads one more time, and if the problem is not resolved, it is time to trash the VCR. One last question, you say that you have reset the channels. Are the reception channels' images clear? I may be able to give some more suggestions, based on this response.
