Probably just needs a good cleaning. The video head is a very tiny thing and takes very little contamination (like dust) to clog it up. If it sits around in humid air then drys out and hardens, it won't come off with those cassette cleaners.
Here is how to do a good cleaning. Unscrew and take off the VCR cover. See the 2 (maybe 4) little windows on the outside of the cylinder head? (round metal thing on a tilt that spins) Those are the video heads and are very easily clogged with contamination causing loss of video. Take a piece of leather the size of a postage stamp, wet it with a little alcohol and just hold it on the side of the cylinder head while you spin the cylinder gently with the other hand to GENTLY wash these heads. Don't move the leather at all - especially up and down as the heads will easily break off. Let them dry for a minute and try to watch a tape. May need to do this several times to get a good picture. Can squirt alcohol directly on the heads and really soak them if needed. Last resort is to use something really strong like acetone, but beware this will also melt any plastic parts it touches.
Hope Ya Fix it!

Video on my Sony VCR (SLV-780HF) goes gray after playing a tape a few seconds. What could be the problem?


The only real cure will be to clean the video head. If that doesn't work then I'm afraid that whatever recorded you EP mode tape was not set up well tracking wise. So other machines struggle to track the tape. Some VCR's will only playback SP or LP tapes and don't have EP mode. In which case you should check to see if these VCR's can play the EP tape and if they can't find one that can.

Playback problem EP


Do you have a tracking control on the
vcr if you do it should be centered during
record It can be adjusted during playback
to clear up the picture adjust it for the best
picture

If you dont have a tracking control on the
vcr then it may require a mechanical adjustment
of the backtension or guidepost which requires
special tools to perform

I have a DVD/VCR recording device and I need to hook up my camcorder to record videos to a DVD to submit to an organization for my son to receive a service dog. I can hook up camcorder straight to TV...


To record to the DVD, connect the A/V cables from the JVC GR-D347U to the A/V In on the DVD recorder. Since the DVD already plays to the TV, you just have to keep the TV set to that input. Put a blank DVD in the recorder. Set the DVD recorder to record on from the appropriate Line In (input) with the DVD as the target recording media. To make sure that all of the devices are on and receiving the output from the camera and DVD recorder, start playback on the GR-D347U and check that it displays on the TV. Forward the tape in the camera to the point where you want to record to the DVD. Stop playback. Press REC for the DVD recorder and restart your playback. Press stop for both the DVD recorder and then the camera when the desired video segment has been played back.

See page 21 of the manual for the GR-D347U. Treat the DVD recorder as a VCR for this situation. The manual is available here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/82266/Jvc-Gr-D347u.html?page=21#manual .

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the details of the DVD recorder for more information on connecting the unit in this daisy chain.

(Many recorders have at least two composite video Line In inputs. That's why you need select the correct one for recording.)

Cannot record due to a black screen


OK, that means you can see clear picture in playback of old recorded tapes and camcorder just wont give you live view to record any more.
If its true then it is known problem/ failure of ccd imager in your JVC GR-D33 camcorder.
JVC will repair it free of cost, click JVC CCD Imager Advisory for details.
Thanks.

I can't keep writeing out of recordings and during playback.


Set the M, A, Off, and Play switch to M with a loaded tape. DO NOT touch the Refresh button. Press the Vol switch down one time, this will get you a Top Menu Page on the display screen. Use the Vol wheel to move about in this Menu page. Press the Vol switch again will let you into the different settings.

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.

Poor EP playback


hi sir
the speed in EP is differ from sp ,EP it is much slow then all quality would be less cause you are using less magnetic particles on the tape so here are many reasons for bad recording
first may be you have to clean video heads
or ,you have to clean the path of the tape in the recorder there are some metal guides that turnes with the tape to get it rounds the heads they may be dirty
or clean the capstain pinch roller and its metal roller that makes it run ( the capstain roller )
or you should have new heasd drum sir
regards

No sound when playing back video


I had the same problem. Try this: open the LCD screen so that you can access the playback buttons.Make sure camera is in playback mode. Press the "menu" button. Select "narration" . Switch narration to "off" .Now you should hear the recorded audio when your tape is playing.
