Question about Aiwa HV-MX100 VHS VCR
I never had this problem before. Nothing has changed! I used to be able to play & record PAL & NTSC videos with my VCR but now, all of a sudden, I cannot see anything (just black & white fuzzies) and if I hit the Menu button and pull up the blue menu screen, I can hear the audio but can't view anything!
Sounds like the video head is dirty. Take the top cover off VCR, locate the video head, which is the rotating shiny aluminum cylindrical piece. At the lower edge of this drum are the actual heads. Use a lint free cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol or product specifically designed for such cleaning, and carefully wipe the heads and drum. Just hold cloth over a finger, and rotate the drum. Sometimes you will need to do this a couple of times.
If VCR has alot of hours or an abrasive cleaning tape has been used excessively, the head could be worn out and a candidate for the trash, unless it is a high dollar unit.
