Your current TV may not be "multi-system", which is needed to play tapes that have been recorded on a VCR that operates on a different "colour system". VCRs can be "multi-system" too, in which case, you select its output to match the playback TV's colour system. When you previously got the tapes to play, your VCR and TV were either "colour system matched" with each other (and the tapes), or "multi-system" http://helpguide.sony.net/dsc/1510/v1/en/contents/TP0000576912.html
A simpler issue may just be a faulty video cable between the VCRs and the TV, assuming you used the same cable in all cases.
No! The best thing to use to clean it is Servisol Video 40. This can be got from your local electronics shop or online. This stuff leaves no residue and cleans much better. You can use the cotton buds with it too.
It's much better to clean every six months or so depending on use. As dirt and grime can cause problems to the heads if left on. If someone smokes where it lives it will need more cleaning as you will find out when you clean it first time!
The tape you were watching was probably worn and left a little of its oxide surface on the VCR's heads. This is pretty common, especially if you ever play rented tapes or tapes that have been around for a while. Plays great, then the next time, no picture.
A head cleaning cassette may solve the problem for you. Make sure you get a wet-type cleaner. Radio Shack has one on their website, and you can probably find one locally. If the VCR hasn't recently (or ever) had a good professional cleaning, it might be time for one. The whole tape path (everything the tape touches, and not just the heads) need to be cleaned and a cleaner tape can't do that. Video rental shops used to offer cleanings. Maybe one in your area still does or there's a shop you can take it to. We charged $20 some years back when I worked at a shop. Today it might be cheaper to replace the VCR than to clean it.
The tape cleaning won't help this problem, it is alignment on tape guide and back tension, like you mentioned it had been service before after they fixed the lens cap issue, usually they connected to computer to adjusted may be they missed. So I sugges you to bring it back to them if it is still under warranty or direct to JVC and take the old tape, ask them to try it after they align this unit, DO NOT use tape cleaning again because you can see picture on the new recorded
that mean the video head is good
I hope that give you some ideas
many faults for that
1- have you tried to play an old tape with sound to check that the video plays sound ?? if you have the sound of a previous tape then move to
2- from where you are recording if you are recording from tv rf channels then move to 3 or if you are recording from dve chek the audio connection that are coming from dvd to video and change it
3- the remaining last fault is you have a dirty audio head needs cleaning and if you don't know how to do so go to qualified person and if you are familiour with that open case and clean and if no refer to 5
5- the audio head it is a chrome cube with a black two thins lines in the right of the mechanism near the pinch roller rounded thing that draws the tape to move
get a clean cloth and spread alchohol on it and rub the rectangle cube audio head up and down ovewr the two thin black things inside it
