Question about Sony SLV-R1000 S-VHS VCR
I assume this symptom appears when attempting to play a tape? If the picture is mostly snow, VCR may need video head cleaning. To do this, take the top cover off- You will note a cylindrical shiny aluminum drum- the actual heads are at the lower edge of this rotating drum.
Anyway, use a lint free cloth or special wipe moistened with rubbing alcohol, or product specifically made for such, carefully cleaning those heads as well as the drum itself. Occasionally, it may take 2 or 3 cleanings.
If the VCR has lots of hours, or abrasive head cleaners have been used, the head could be worn out. If so, toss the rig and purchase a new one. Head replacement is non-economical unless you have a high end machine.
