Question about Sony SLV-N750 VHS/S-VHS playback VCR

2 Answers

I have a Sony SLV-EZ717

My parents taped a program for my son. When we play it back on our vcr it seems to be in fast forward mode. The voices are like chipmunks and the vision is just black and white lines.

This has happened before. I do not know what to do to play it correctly

This model has long play. Try adjusting the track, there should be buttons on the front of the unit.

It sounds like the taped program was recorded on a different speed. The other VCR that you are playing the taped program may not have the speed needed to play it correctly.
Next time when you record a program try to make sure you use a speed that will be compatible on both VCRs.
For example a tape that last 120 minutes, using the different speeds will give the following recording times.
SP means "Standard Play" >>>> 2 hours
LP means " Long Play" >>>>> 4 hours
ELP means " Extra Long Play" 8 hours

Older VCRs have all the 3 speeds but newer ones only have SP and ELP.
Hope this helps.

When I fast forward I can't view the video.

Some VCR's can't view tapes recorded on other machines. However you could try cleaning the video heads to see if that makes any differrance.

Vcr wont play properly tracking seems to be off i have opened up the vcr player and given everything a good inspection but cant see any obvious issue with the ''mechanics'' of the device. The tape being...

It is possibe that the guide of the tape transport is gone a little off. This can happen if the guide has not loaded properly. check inside for obstructions to the link. if not try to screw down the half split screw a little down on either side to release the tracking/ noise onthe screen. Also clean the tracking head which is also the audio head. clean your roller if this is holding down the tape. Please do this with caution and care. clean your head and also the lower section of the head drum for dirt. you will see accumulation on/under the lower drum , Hope this helps. Good day

How do I get my VCR to tape programs

Two things to check here. Lets verify the basic functioning of the unit. Have you tried playing back a pre-recorded tape? If so, please post the results here. I suspect that a pre-recorded tape will fail as well. If so, I'll post instructions on how to resolve the problem.

Please keep me posted.

My VCR tapes skip or only play in fast forward

If you are recording the tapes in a slow speed, then I would suspect that the tracking pulse is not being recorded properly. Since this is a new VCR, return it for an exchange. One of the recording heads is bad.

The mode switch is the device that monitors the various positions of all mechanical components in the transport area. It is usually an encoder type device, located near the center or right side bottom of the transport. But, before I'd condemn the switch, I would certainly check and see the the transport is "cycling", and that nothing is slipping. This is usually the case when this symptom crops up...accordianman

Sony SLV-940HF VCR Will not accept tape

Dear Rob, There can be two reasons for your problem.Let us consider the simpler and most likely cause.....Belts!!! Unplug the Plug from the Power socket. Open up the top and bottom Panels.Check the belts. Most likely you will find a belt has snapped ( a 80% possibility) or become very very loose. Also check the Tape Loading mechanism,there is a small belt which connects from the Loading motor to the Loading Mechanism. Replace the belts as a entire set. Let me know if this worked out. Good Luck.
