I had the same problem with my VCR. The problem is not a dirty head. I was connecting the VCR to the A/V input of those new TVs with the digital tuners. I got rid of the problem by connecting the coaxial (analog Channel 3 or 4) output of the VCR to the Antenna input of the TV and tune to plain old analog channel 3 or 4. That way you apparently avoid the digital circuits and those blasted dropouts; Now the VCR plays perfectly on my new 42-inch TV..

When trying to play back a recorded program, i cannot get a picture, but can hear the sound. the screen is not blank, but all scrambled. Any ideas?


It sounds like the video head is dirty, there are three approaches, the first! you can use a wet tape with two or three drops of solution and run it for ten to twenty seconds, or you can use a dry cleaning tape for the same amount of time "easier on the mechanical system" or the third idea get a blank store bought tape T120 set the vcr to sp and run it from beginning to end, gives a deeper cleaning.

HOW TO CLEAN VHS VCR HEADS


Vcr's commonly get dirty heads that cause a blue or snowy screen and no sound in some cases. In my experience the rental tapes were common point of trouble especially when you consider the amount of machines that were deployed in use back in those days. Today people run into less issues because they have there own collection and put them to good use. In order to deal with some people's problems there are three approaches to cleaning heads, the first option is to use a wet tape with the provided fluid usually two or three drops will do and run it for ten to twenty seconds. The second approach is use a dry tape with same amount of time as outlined above. The third approach is get a blank store bought tape "T120 2hours" set the vcr to sp and run the tape from beginning to end, this is a good way if you want do more of a deep clean to remove difficult dirty particles that refuse give way. I find the dry tape will give less problems when cleaning and less chance of shredding and easier for people who don't like taking vcr's apart.

WILL NOT TRACK. +/- BUTTONS ON FROM OF VCR ARE FUNCTIONAL, BUT IMAGE OF IMAGE IS DISTORTED AND NOT IN COLOR.


I will assume you have tried to clean the video head, if you have not use a wet or dry cleaning tape "dry better choice" and see if that will work, the other option is use a brand new store bought blank tape T120 and set the vcr speed at sp and let it run all the way through. If all this fails it means either the video head is bad or you need alignment done inside the vcr.

I'm getting nothing but snow when I press play on my VCR. Everything is plugged in, the sound comes through clearly but no picture. Any ideas?


It sounds like you have a dirty video head, you can try a wet or dry cleaning tape, I recommend a dry tape because it is easier on the head. The second option is run a brand new T120 tape and set the speed at sp (2hrs) let it run the full time.

Video tapes only paly for about 2 seconds then stops


The heads need cleaning and/or the tapes are old and dirtying up the playing heads.
Run a wet tape head cleaner through an see if this improves.

Transport erratic - machine cuts out on PLAY/REW/REC


A machine reset (unplugging- (x1 wk)) temporarily seemed to fix; some probls returned after 24 hrs.

Technician series text suggest probl may be Tape Load reel (gears, worn belts), tape slack sensor,
mode switch, etc. In other words, machine needs overhaul due to lack of maintenance. [ But where to get necess parts???!! ]

Audio & picture still perform well. Suspect snow dropouts due to tape age (at least late 1980s) & oxides.

Sanyo VHR-9440 eating tape


Most likely it hasn't been used enough. You see the rubber parts that drive the tape get dry and can develope small hairline cracks. It can be fixed. But it would be a lot cheaper to just get a newer machine. You could also try a WET TAPE cleaner-ASOP makes a good one-radio shack still carries it. It cleans the entire path of the tape (all the rubber rollers and metal parts that the tape comes into contact with). When it is done you may have to run it again. Just wait 20 min after you are done before testing a tape in it (stuff needs to dry inside). If that don't work-buy a new one- they're cheap enough this days.

VCR Play Back is OK, but Recording produces Blue Screen on playback


If the heads are TOO dirty, a head cleaner will not help. If you are cinfident enough to open up the recorder, then they can be cleaned manually.

Disconnect the VCR from the mains.

Remove the screews from the side and back (if applicable) of the lid.

Remove the lid.

Look at the large drum (set at a slight angle) If you gently rotate the drum you will see 2 or 4 small sensors set into the drum.

Tear of a clean piece of A4 paper about 1inch square.

Hold between thumb and first finger and rub the centre of the paper against each sensor in turn. Make sure the edge of the paper does not catch the sensor.

After each sensor check the paper for dirt (black marks) and change paper if need be.

Try a recording / playback.

Repeat if necessary.

VCR won't tape and get no playback


First check how good / bad are your recordings. Take a current / recent recording done after this problem cropped up, and play it back on another VCR - maybe a friend's. If the recording plays back badly- showing the symptoms you described, then the problem is still dirty or worn out Video Heads. If the Recording plays back perfectly on the friend's machine, but plays back badly on your machine, I still suggest that you try cleaning the Heads one more time, and if the problem is not resolved, it is time to trash the VCR. One last question, you say that you have reset the channels. Are the reception channels' images clear? I may be able to give some more suggestions, based on this response.
