This problem is undoubtably dirty or worn video heads. Try using a good quality head cleaning tape. If this fails, re-post, and I will explain how to clean heads by hand.

My VCR won't interface properly with my TV. Any time I try to play a tape, all I get is a blue screen. I've tried using it with an older TV, and the tapes play fine. Any help is appreciated.


Make sure that the tv set's rf frequency is set to the same rf as the vcr. If both are identical then something is definitely wrong with the tv set since the vcr works fine with another set.

I taped a TV show. But I can't fast forward to see the end part that I want to watch. It just advances to the end.


I'm not surprised that it advances on the end. The VCR doesn't know where the end of the taped programme is. You will have to search manually for it. Start at the end of the tape and rewind a few minutes worth of recording then press 'play' and see what you get. If not successful rewind further and try again, etc,etc. Alternatively you could press "play +rewind" which should allow you to watch the record on what is fast (=x2) rewind. It will help you if you know how long the show was and at what point the tape was when recording started.

Recording from VHS to DVDR was going fine,then I stopped getting a picture. DVD player is fine plays back recordings etc. However tape player starts to play shows picture then stops showing video and...


Possibly dirty video heads. I would suggest that you run a head-cleaning tape through the VCR deck to shift surface dirt off the heads. If that doesn't work, or it sort of works, but not satisfactorily, unplug unit, carefully remove top cover, and with the VCR deck in view, gently clean the heads with a soft cloth or special cleaning stick (these look like flat q-tips but are intended for VCRs - available from electronics/hobby stores) and some alcohol (methylated spirit will work if that's all you got - but isopropyl alcohol is recommended - available from the same places as the sticks) clean the guides (gently so as not to disturb their alignment) clean the pinch roller/capstan shaft - CTL (on the right-hand side of the drum) and FE (left side) heads as well. The whole tape path should be carefully cleaned. Refit top cover (carefully), plug unit back into power, wait until it completes its startup/loading procedure, then put a tape in. You should now have a playback picture with the sound. You only need to do this as required if head-cleaning cassettes don't work properly.

If none of the above cures your problem, then the heads are abraded/worn - let's hope that isn't the case here. This model does not use a built-in head cleaner.

I have a Panasonic DMR-ES35V and all is working great except it recently started showing only a blue screen when I try and play a VHS tape. Doesn't matter what kind of tape, home movie or professional it...


You can try cleaning the video heads and tape path within the VCR deck. If this doesn't fix it, then the heads are worn, or there is a fault with the head amplifier (this is part of the motherboard and nearly all surface-mounted components).

I would go with the simplest option first: check the condition of the heads, if dirty, clean them with commercially available head cleaning products such as isopropyl alcohol (IPA) head cleaning solution.

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.

VCR problems on my new Hannspree HDTV


It is unlikely that you will be able to solve this issue. This is due to the way a digital TV works.

The output from your VCR is an analogue signal - a constantly varying electrical signal carrying information about the picture. This is interspersed with a synchronisation signal that tells the TV where the start of each frame begins within the stream. With me so far?

When you fast-forward a tape, two things happen: the sync signals appear faster than expected and bars of static noise appear across the picture (I won't go into the technical details as to why!)

On an old analogue TV this isn't an issue - The way they work means that they will display some sort of picture. In other words, whatever signal is coming in (no matter how corrupted) it will show it on the screen.

Digital TVs are different. They have to read all the information for each frame and process it before it is displayed. When you fast-forward the tape (and the sync signals are at the wrong speed and interspersed with noise) a digital TV gets 'confused' - It cannot make sense of the signal, so ignores it, acting as if there is no signal at all (hence the blue screen).

Most VCRs are designed to retain enough of the signal that some sort of picture can be displayed while fast-forwarding. However, because you are recording in LP mode (which effectively halves the normal speed of the tape and also reduces the quality of the recording) there just isn't enough information in what is left for a digital TV to recognise as a 'proper' signal.

Your only option is to revert back to SP mode, or treat yourself to a new digital recorder :-)

Hope this helps,

Matt.

Tv monitor turns blue during forward or reverse vcr search


On some TV's the screen will go blue if there is not a strong, solid video signal present. This is to prevent the showing of very snowy or all snow channels, or garbled, mixed-up external video signals. This is normal. On some VCR's the video signal changes when the FF or REW search feature is used, and this could trigger the TV to go to blue screen. The only way around this if you can enter the TV's menu and turn off the blue screen feature.
