I have a sharp vcr vC992 what is sp the menu pops up and sound but movie not working


SP is standard play. If you are playing a VHS video and cannot see the picture, but you can hear the sound playing. Then you need to clean the video head inside the machine. You can get a head cleaning tape to do this. That should restore the picture.

When I put a tape in, the screen says "auto tracking" and picture jitters all over the place. Manually pushing track up and down buttons on remote doesn't seem to have any effect. (Zenith...


You may have bad video heads casuing the unit to constantly trying to "auto track" to correct picture issues. You can try and run a head cleaner and see what that does, otherwise it sounds like time to replace the VCR. I hope this helps : )

We were just watching a vhs movie on our tv/vcr combo unit and the picture went to fuzz however, the sound was still working. any suggestions or are we in need of a new unit.


Some VHS have a tracking button that allows the user to tune to the best signal. Usually that tracking function is used as follows.
While movie is playing on the VHS unit and signal gets fuzzy, press the channel key repeatedly (for example >> to increase the channel number). f after awhile pressing the same channel change button does not find a better picture, you should press the other channel change button (to decrease the channel number <<) to see if the picture improves.

If that does not work, IT DOES NOT MEAN that you tv/vcr combo unit is defective. It could just be the movie. The tape is magnetic and it might have been accidentally demagnetized.

If picture is better with another movie/tape, your unit is definitely OK.

How can I get ride of the pscan split screen view on my memerex vcr-dvd player without the remote control and no manual


Hi,
I'm not sure what is model number of your VCR-DVD combo so providing you general info to turn off pscan.
Put disc in player, press play to have distorted picture then press stop button to stop playback.
Now press and hold Stop button on unit for 6 seconds that will turn off pscan mode.
Or let me know exact model number of your player to find out solution.
Thanks.

How do I get the picture?


The TV is usually set to Channel 3 or Channel 4. You may have a switch on the back of the VHS recorder near which is marked Ch3 Ch4.

Once you correct this, try the following procedure.

VHS won't play correctly - no picture, muffled low voices


Several things.
Check the tape, by opening the cover, to see if the tape is damaged. Look for signs of crinkling at the edges. This is often caused by the roller being worn on one of the VCR.
If it's damaged there's not a lot you can do.
If there's no damage try taking it out of the cassette box and fitting it in a new 'good make' blank tape tape box, discard the new tape in it. Still no good?
Next step, is the tape a movie/tv made by a commercial company. Or a recording on a blank tape?
Did it ever play? (if a movie) if not suspect a pirate tape report seller to FACT.
If a blank tape, try recording on a blank section. If that doesn't work and your video will record on other blank tapes. The tape has something wrong with it.
Some video recorders will play tapes with bad problems IE bad tracking, that others refuse to play, but you will either have to find one owned by a friend or buy one with that claim.

VHS-C tape jumpy when playing back


My apologies, I overlooked the "-C" in your post.

This problem is due to a type ofcopy protection built into vcr's.

"Macrovision" copy-protection is merely a weakening of a particular part of the signal that makes up the picture and was primarily intended to prevent people from copying videotapes. I imagine almost everyone's seen it but probably didn't know what they were seeing: the resulting picture is a little jittery and is in black-and-white or alternates between black-and-white and color. The reason you're seeing a blue screen is because modern televisions, in the absence of a signal or a weak signal, will just show a blue screen instead of snow or a very poor picture. As mentioned above, you can get around Macrovision by inserting into your connections a signal amplifier that specifically amplifies the portion of the signal that Macrovision diminishes.

Flashing


One possibility is the tracking/audio head is dirty. Remove top cover of VCR, this head sits just to the right of the rotating video head. Use a cotton swab moistened with rubbing alcohol, or other video head cleaner and clean this head, especially the lower edge, as the tracking info is recorded along the lower edge of the tape (if memory serves). Another possibility is a problem with tape travel past this head. If the tape is lifting or moving up or down, even slightly as it passes this head, tracking will be lost, hence your blue screen & bad audio. This could be observed by playing a tape with the VCR cover off.
