Question about Sony SLV-N51 VHS VCR

1 Answer

SLV-N51 VCR won't record - all I get is black and white fuzz. Tried it using the timer first, and then again without the timer - same thing. VCR will play tapes, but won't record.

Vcr tape ejects when i want to record


One possibilty is the record sensor that pushes against the tab on the video tape (the bit you break off to prevent a tape being recorded on) has bent out of shape and the video therefore thinks ALL tapes are pre-recorded or protected and rejects them.

Vcr ejects tape when i try to record.


is the erase protection tab removed from the cassette?
if yes there is a square hole on the back of the tape visible when you insert it.
put a piece of sticky tape over this hole and make shure it does not come loose.
it should record fine now when you insert it again.

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.

Won't timer record


- Does it have a tape inserted?
- Is the clock set?
- Is VCR off? (has to be off to be in timer mode for many VCRs)
- Is it recording but just plays back blank or does it not even start?
- If recording blank, make sure you are giving it a signal (Is your monitor hooked to the VCR output?)
- If timer doesn't start double check timer settings - they can be very tricky.

Recording


Does it record when you are simultaneously watching a program? if yes, then recording circuits are OK. It is definitely a problem of settings. Try doing it again step by step. And before you program for timer recording, make sure that the VCR clock is set for correct time.
