It sounds like you need to do a good clean up inside the vcr with some Servisol Video 40 and some cotton buds. You need only to take off the top cover. Clean anywhere the tape touches. Or you could get a VHS head cleaner tape, but you'll make a better job with the Servisol!

Awia HV-FX7500K has started to chew the vhs tape & Now everytime you place the VHS in the VCR it reads and ejects it within 5 seconds.


The biggest cause of that is a worn pinch roller. Replacement is the only cure. You could take off the top cover and watch an old tape being inserted. You will soon see where the tape goes wrong.

Image distorted on panasonic nv-fj620


I can't say for certain but it sounds like the video head might have gone. The good news is that you can get the parts from Curry's Partmaster website. Perhaps cheaper elsewhere? The bad news is that video heads are not cheap!

I don't know how you cleaned the head. So I would advise trying again to make certain. I would recommend cleaning with Servisol Video 40 several times. If that still doesn't work I would assume the head to have gone.

2 - select the S-VIDEO as a source in the tv menu.
3 - press PLAY on the vcr's case to start playing the tape.

Sound but no picture on the vcr


Do you have a picture with just normal playback of VCR? If the answer is no, then it sounds like the head might need cleaning. Use Servisol video 40 see image below:

RCA 8295n dvd-vcr combo starts recording from VHS tape to disk and then stops.


Is the VHS tape a store bought movie or show?

MacroVision and other copy protection systems are put into store bought tapes and discs of movies and shows, and are read by your recording equipment. Once it reads this, it stops recording.

Does the screen turn red before it stops? This is one of the indications that MacroVision is stopping you.

Adapter question


There are no such adapters that would allow 8mm, Hi8 and Mini DV tapes to be played in a VHS VCR. Only the old VHS-C tapes can fit and play in an adapter. There are several reasons why 8mm (or Hi8 and miniDV tapes) cannot be physically played in a VHS VCR: 1. 8mm (Hi8, miniDV) is a different format with different technical characteristics than VHS. These formats were never developed with the intention to be mechanically compatible with current VHS technology. 2. 8mm/Hi8 tapes are 8mm wide (miniDV is 6mm wide), while VHS tape is 1/2" wide, making it impossible for a VHS video head to read the taped information correctly. 3. 8mm/Hi8/miniDV tapes are recorded and played at different speeds than VHS, so even if the tapes could physically fit into a standard VHS VCR, the VCR still couldn't play back the tapes at their correct speeds. 4. 8mm/Hi8/minDV audio is recorded differently than VHS. 8mm/Hi8 audio is recorded in AFM HiFi mode, while miniDV audio is recording in 12-Bit or 16-Bit PCM digital audio format. So, even if the video could be played back in a VHS VCR, the audio could not be read properly. 5. 8mm/Hi8 video is of higher resolution than VHS and is recorded in a different bandwidth length (miniDV video is recorded digitally), so once again, a standard VCR still could not read the information correctly, even if the tape could fit into a VCR.
