It might be the mode switch. This tells the computer chip what position the VCR is in. It can go out of phase due to dirt (Just spray the Mode Switch with Servisol video 40 to cure that). Or it can go out of phase due to a mechanical fault. IE: some plastic part has broken etc. The mode switch itself can wear out.
If cleaning doesn't work, or you discover a fault, the mode switch may be then out of position. Setting it up right will almost certainly require a manual. As they very often need to be set up when the VCR is a position which nine times out of ten is not the eject mode!

Hey there, Here are some ideas; I would clean it one more time to make sure that its nice and clean try playing a different tape on your VCR and check the channel on your VCR, and thats if you are using a channel 3 or 4 on your VCR, concur with each other. Meaning if you have Channel 3 on your TV you should have Channel 3 on your VCR. Thats a really old method. If you use a coxial cable unplug it and replug it in again sometimes there is no contact at one of the ends therefore disconnecting or connecting it again would help. Just see if that works and usually that was the problem when i use to have problems with my VCR. Let me know if that works out for you alright.
