Sounds like the tape misfed during the recording and wrapped itself around the fly head and recordinghead. This happens sometimes when the internal workings of the recorder get dirty. The hard part is getting the tape out without damaging the unit. Your going to have to bring the recorder to a repair shop or crack it open yourself and from the opposite side try unwind the tape.

Legally speaking you did not give your consent for these boys to video tape or record you. They also threatened to cause physical harm. Tell your parents and have them talk to the principle. Have them ask the principle to ensure that the boys remove the video, deleting it completely.

Tip

I've been unable to play several bought VHS tapes of films, though oddly,...


Vcr's commonly get dirty heads that cause a blue or snowy screen and no sound in some cases. In my experience the rental tapes were common point of trouble especially when you consider the amount of machines that were deployed in use back in those days. Today people run into less issues because they have there own collection and put them to good use. In order to deal with some people's problems there are three approaches to cleaning heads, the first option is to use a wet tape with the provided fluid usually two or three drops will do and run it for ten to twenty seconds. The second approach is use a dry tape with same amount of time as outlined above. The third approach is get a blank store bought tape "T120 2hours" set the vcr to sp and run the tape from beginning to end, this is a good way if you want do more of a deep clean to remove difficult dirty particles that refuse give way. I find the dry tape will give less problems when cleaning and less chance of shredding and easier for people who don't like taking vcr's apart.

Not recording or playing back recorded tapes


first leave your camcorder with the cassete draw open in a warm room for 24 hrs.
then, use a brand new cassette & re try.
if you get the condensation message, it means the unit has detected moisture on the heads, the unit will not operate... hence your problems.

As far as I know, you need to press Record button to record from external source. If you press Dub, it will start Dubbing from Tape-A to Tape-B. You might be need to press Record and later press Pause or Play to start recording.

I think the problem with the tapes stopping is that there is too much tension on the tape. Try another VCR and try to see if you have the same problem playing the tape. Forward and reverse through the part that causes the player to stop. It is also possible that the tape inside the vcr has become twisted or stuck. One can fix this if they are very careful opening the video tape. However, I would not recommend this for most people
