You might need a more thorough cleaning than a head cleaner will provide. Or your deck needs realignment. Either problem resolution will cost more than the price of a new machine.

When recording using the VCR, the audio sounds like it's under water. Something is wrong with the audio head in recording the sound.


I can't believe people still use these things!
In any case - Everytime you play a tape, record, rewind, fast forward, etc, the tape runs over heads on your VCR. Those heads can become filthy with dust and magnetized.
What you need is a head cleaner/demagnetizer. I'm not sure where you'd find this these days, maybe radio shack?

Video noise pattern in playback panasonic AG 1980P VCR


It sounds like the video heads are dirty, or the tracking is off. I would first try adjusting the tracking to see if it can be corrected. If that does not work then I would clean the video heads using a video head cleaner (Radio Shack) You could also try a different tape to see if it that could be the reason. Also double check you video connections to your monitor to make sure they are good. If all of this fails than it may have to be checked out at an authorized Panasonic repair facility!

I hope this helps and good luck!

Sounds like you have a head-clog. You can purchase a VHS Head Cleaner at Radio Shack for $5.00. If that doesn't work repairing your VCR is not cost effective when you consider that you can purchase a new VHS/DVD combo deck for under $125.00

No picture


Have tried cleaning the Video Heads? Over long periods of usage, the viseoheads get clogged, and you get a 'dirty' or fuzzy picture. Go to the Video store (radio shack should be ok)and buy a Wet type Head Cleaning cassete. Follow the instructions, and I am fairly certain that your problem should be solved. It is also possiblethat over a longperiod of usage, the Video Heads have got worn out. if you have been observing a gradual detoriation in picture quality, it could mean that the Video Heads have finally got worn out. in such a case they have to be replaced. First try the Cleaning option.
