    I have a similar problem. My video camera stopped playing the tapes (an issue I am still trying to figure out without spending lots of money), so we used a different camera to play the videos, but now all we get is a snow storm on the screen and a static noise for sound. Any suggestions as to how to fix this would be great!

Vhs SP tapes


It sounds like the tapes may be physically damaged, wrinkled or creased. This may have been done when they were played in whatever machine you used 5 years ago. Tapes can also be damaged in storage by heat or humidity. Tapes should also be stored on end in their boxes, not flat. If these tapes were stored flat, the bottom edge might have gotten wrinkled. This can damage the control track and cause playback issues.

Stuck VHS Tape/Power Issue


It sounds like the vcr is not completely loading the tape, and is overloading or getting confused. If you feel up to it, you can take the cover off the tv, find the tape loading mechanism, and 'help' the loading rollers along yourself... once the tape loads, eject it immediately, and you should be off and running again. Just be careful not to touch any electrical connections. If you're not comfortable with that, you're right, it's probably cheaper to get a newer tv - check with a local independent shop first, though, it should be a really quick fix.

The gray strips usually mean the camera has dirt video heads - if it hasn't been dropped. Get a head-cleaning tape from Radio Shack or Best Buy, and run it a few times. If that doesn't do it, it'll have to be cleaned by a repair shop. Off brand tapes sometimes can cause this.
