The "fuzz" is because of no video signal from the heads. You can try a cleaning tape. If that fails, then the unit will need to be taken apart and a professional cleaning/realignment done. I would also suspect that the last tape that was used prior to this current one is probably suspect as the culprit here. The heads were likely contaminated by that tape.

Please keep us posted on your progress.

Have a Toshiba TV model Mv13M3. All of a sudden it turned off, with no sound and no picture and the word "line" in green on the upper rightn hand corner of the screen. Any suggestions?


Although I did not manage to find the manual for this combo set, to check it fully, it seems that maybe someone pressed the remote button marked "Input Selection" that selects each one of the audio/video inputs of the set.

Press it two or three times and check if it cycles the inputs till a TV channel shows on the screen.

Hope this info can help you!

Vcr sound but no picture


After checking the connection, played a pre-recorded tape and the picture was displayed gradually. After about 5 mins picture was completly restored. Lost of picture was due to dirty tape heads.

VCR playback sound and pciture don't match


That is a tape path issue. The new VCR has the problem, usually the guide post for the tape sticks out when it shouldn't making the sound late for the picture because the gap between the video head and audio head is wrong.

Volume loss after VCR recording


Try adjusting tracking to detent Sounds like audio heads are miss aligned . Does your unit have audio levels if so turn them up when recording. Try adjusting tracking or try patching recording unit to the tv .If it has L/R video inputs use the same deck you recorded on for playback. .

VCR not working with TV


What you state cannot be logical. If picture is freezing, then the VCR is at fault. But you state that the VCR works fine when played, and viewed on another TV. So, the only explanation I can think of is that there is some thing faulty with your VCR. Probably, when you play a tape, the picture freezes. This could be 'cos the Capstan motor of the VCR freezes. Common problem with aged VCRs. Just requires a spot of grease, and service. IT CANNOT BE THE TV AT FAULT!!!!

Hitachi 23" tv/ toshiba vcr


Sounds like a problem in your VCR IF what your saying is when the screen goes dark and you turn off the VCR then the screen on the tv returns to normal?? Does this happen with the vcr on and the tape not playing?? No Ok you have a problem in the video processor Ic or the circuit but most likly the IC as Ive seen this already twice in a toshiba VCR. No if it happens even when the VCR is on but the tapes not plying and the vcr is sitting, and the screen fades The problem is the on screen disply IC in the vcr. seen this a dozon or so times already. Vcrs no a days are not worth the money to invest Unless you got a really good one from the past, BUT you can by a good on for these times for well under 100 bucks . Good Luck
