GoVideo Dual Deck VCR Model#GV6015with one touch copy

Trying to record (from TV) using Deck 2 of course.
There is snow on the tape. Using a pre-recorded tape playing on Dec 2 - the picture is also snowy.
Playing the sam pre-recorded tape in Dec 1 - the tape plays normally - no snow nice picture.
I tried cleaning Dec 2 with a cleaning tape, and there was no improvement.

Panasonic are very good at having free PDF copies of user manuals. However if you just want to playback old tapes then all you need do is connect the vcr to a TV and press play. You might need to adjust the tracking using the controls on the remote. But the picture should play. If you see snow on the screen, but can hear sound, then the tape heads will need to be cleaned. You can get a VCR cleaning tape for that.

Removing VHS tape stuck in player


Only for sure way is to take the machine apart. This is not near as difficult as it seems. Benefit to this is you will find out what caused the jam.

check the drive belt - it's probably stretched and won't operate the mechanism to eject the tape.

Recording problem on Sony SLV-R1000


The deck needs a good cleaning. Try using a brand new tape and run it on playback for 20 min or so. You could try using a cleaning tape, but many of them are abrasive. If this doesn't work, you need a deck re-alignment which will cost more than your set is worth.

First, have you doublechecked the video hookup? It sounds like you are using the video/audio inputs to the TV, so make sure you have VCR video out cabled to TV video input, and the TV source/input selection set to that input (video 1 etc.). If this checks out, check for a dirty video head on the VCR, though a dirty head usually results in a blank or blue video display (older VCRs, snow). You could do a process of elimination by hooking VCR to a different TV and see what is displayed then. Lastly, I assume you've tried multiple tapes, just in case a home recorded tape was incorrectly recorded?
