Question about Hitachi Televison & Video
A common problem is rental videos that have been damaged in the first few feet of the tape by some other vcr's defective drive mechanism that "eats"the tape..What happens is the particles of the damaged tape clog the video heads in your machine,which have gaps in the millionths of an inch.Put a brand new tape in the machine and let it play for a half hour or so and it will usually clear itself.If that does not do it,insert a head clening tape and a couple drops of cleaning fluid and run it through.The newer machines will show a blue screen if there is no video information present.However,if you put it on forward search,it overrides that feature and you will see a snowy picture from a good tape,if one video head is clogged and the other is working.There are 2 video heads on a rotating head.it spins at 1800rpm and that is the whirring sound you hear when play is pressed.If both heads are clogged,you will see a snowy screen and no picture at all.A 4 head machine has 2 heads for slp or 2 hour speed and the other 2 heads are used for lp and slp.A hifi vcr has 2 more heads,which are used for the hifi audio,a total of 6 heads.The stationary playback head has a control signal for tape speed,and regular audio,mono or stereo.
