When I play a tape that wasn't recorded on the vl-e610u, it plays it at a faster speed. Is there a remedy?

    Does the sharp vl-e610u have a tape sensor that would recognize the different recording speeds? Mine plays my old 8mm videos recorded on a sony at a faster speed. If the tape sensor is dirty, how do you clean it?

Hello

Different recorders can record at varying speeds, and when you try to play it back in a different brand player, its speed can be different. As you're trying to play the tape on a recording device, it may not have any options to change playback speed as they lack the more advanced features of larger tape players.

Apparently the "other" tapes have been recorded at a "tape saving" speed and your cam is not picking that up. I would suggest a good tape sensor cleaning. Thank you, Dana

    If you go to a radio shack or an equivalent, they have these rawhide tipped tape head cleaning wands. They work quite well. Thanks, Dana

My vcr tapes play too fast


If I remember correctly, VCR players had three speed settings. SP-short play, LP-Long play, and SLP- Super long play. The vcr is supposed to be able to tell what speed the tape was recorded at, thus playing it back at the correct speed. If your unit has lost the ability to sense the speed the tape was recorded then you will have to set the speed manually, if possible. Other than that I would have to say it's time to get a new vcr.

I have a VHS tape that has an hour worth of recorded material on it, but when I play it, it plays the first 11 minutes, then it goes to static and the counter stops counting. I can fast forward but when I...


You may think the tape has an hour of material on it, but the machine thinks otherwise. Either it didn't actually get recorded past the 11 minute point, or something erased the tape past that point. There's nothing to play after that time, so you're seeing the snowy screen. On most VCRs, the tape counter only works when a valid video signal is detected, which is why it's not advancing as the tape plays. There's nothing you can do to recover whatever was on the tape, so I hope it wasn't anything important.

Get a firewire (IEEE-1394) cable insteaad of trying to use USB. Make sure that both camera and computer have firewire ports. Set camera to Tape/VCR or whatever setting you use when you playback your tape on your camcorder. Just leave it on that setting, don't hit "Play" or anything. Make sure that you have rewinded to the spot where you want it to start (a few seconds before, actually).

If you have WIndows Vista, you don't need drivers. The built-in Windows Photo Gallery will recognize it and will ask you if you want to transfer the tape. It will walk you through the whole process, if you want to transfer the whole tape or only parts of it. If you don't have Vista, you might try downloading Windows Live Photo Gallery but I don't know if it has the same functionality.

Recording Speed


the tascam 414 is a 4 track recording studio which uses standard cassette tapes- meaning they only play in one direction, because the tape is full. The 414 records at double speed so that recording fidelity is increased. When you have made a recording you want to mix you then dub your recording though the outputs into another standard tape recorder or whatever you have available, be it a cd recorder or your PC. So, when you listened to your recording on a standard tape player, you were not only hearing it at half speed but you were only listening to 2 of the 4 tracks. The other tracks would only be heard if you flipped the tape over, and they would be heard running backward. I would have though the 414 had a swich to allow it to also record at standard speed to but I guest it does not.

Camera plays in fast forward-like speed


Though I don't know the details of your camera and the tape you are playing, one explanation could be that the tape was recorded in "extended play" EP rather than "standard play" SP. Some VCRs and some cameras are incapable of playing back in EP, a mode where the tape moves at half speed so you can record more on the same tape. The result is that the tape playing back at regular speed appears twice as fast and fast forward will be even faster.

Unfortunately, unless your machine can be manually set to play back in EP (usually it is automatic) the solution is to play it back in a machine that can handle EP.
