Question about Samsung DVD-V9800 DVD Player/VCR
Hi as you get a good picture with the dvd then this tells us you are tuned in to the correct channel and thats not the problem, the next thing and most likely cause is going to be the head that the tape runs on this is a big silver cylinder at the back of the vcr part, what you need to do is go out to a tv repair shop and buy a vcr head cleaning kit, dont buy a cheap one as these dont work but buy a mid to high end one then follow the instructions on cleaning the head it will say something like pour cleaning fluid onto the cleaning tape provided then play the tape in the vcr this will then clean the vcr head and should solve your problem and get it working as normal.
now if after doing that it still dont work properly then the chances are it may need a pro to take it apart and clean the head by hand this may also solve the problem but if it dont then this points to the fact that the playback head is damaged and will need replacing, now the problem with this is getting the parts its not easy to trace parts for vcr's any more as they have now stopped making them, you may be lucky and find your local repair shop might still have spares in stock but if he has not then the chance of getting the spare parts is slim.
give the cleaning a go first and see what happens you may find this will then solve the problem.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I wonder if you just need to make sure your FORMAT is set correctly on BOTH units, it needs to be either USA: NTSC or Europe: PAL.
Check these settings in your menus, and ensure both are the same.
If not that then try a different set of leads..
