This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

I bought a studio standard by fisher tape deck and it makes a buzzing sound and it wont play tapes what do i do


Take it back, it's broken!

Buzzing can be a fault on leads connected to it, but 'won't play tapes is terminal unless you ant to spend money on repair. Tapes are an antique of the past superseded by CD, and now MP3 digital.

The menu screen displays but it wont play tapes


Do the tapes play in the machine, but you don't get a picture. Or do they not even start to play?

If they play and you don't see a picture then you need to clean the VCR head. You can get a tape head cleaning tape for this.

If the VCR won't play a tape at all, please describe in more detail what happens when you insert a tape for playback and I or someone else at Fixya will help you further.

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.

Wont play tapes, makes clunking sound


Tape? What's a tape? Just kidding. I agree with chryslerpro. Look on ebay for an exact replacement. Consider maybe upgrading to cd's instead. Good Luck
