Your video head are dirty
Needs cleaning
> use denatured alcohol and shamos sticks
> clean tape guides also / they will have residue that will transfer to the video heads.
> be careful not to snag the heads.<<< very delicate
> professional should do the cleaning
hope this helps.

I have a Panasonic DMR-ES30V. I've only ever recorded from what I'm watching on the TV to a DVD. I now have a VHS tape that I'd like to record to DVD. I tried starting the dvd to record...


Most Combo Recorders (VHS and DVD) will prevent you from
recording a Copyrighted VHS tape program onto DVD.
Try recording a TV program onto your VHS tape, then
transfer it to your DVD and see if your new DVD recording
will work or not.

My py90vg dvd vhs player does not play vhs. The sound is on but there is no picture


If you have the DVD/VCR connected using the component outputs, then you'll need to also connect a composite video wire to your TV from the DVD/VCR. VHS will not play through the component outputs, only the DVD will and they probably both share the same audio output connection so this would explain the DVD being seen and heard while only hearing the VHS.

grace0308, Many of the combo units have multiple video outputs and some, like the SVHS and RGB Component outputs, are for DVD only. Make sure that you are plugged into the proper video output. Play a tape and try them all.

Your unit has it seems to have developed a video problem. it could be in the video switching IC or the video processor. Its going to need a trained technician, who knows how to use an ocilliscope to find the video problem.. Good Luck
