You need to send it to a repair center because the problem might be a bad idle on the vcr deck player ,and you can not be able to fix it.Good luck.

Allegro DVD/VCR combo - not reading disk & eating tapes.


Sorry I know very little about the dvd side but my experience with several VCRs is they need cleaning sometimes just like audio tape recorders and players need cleaning. Early in my days of VCR ownership the engineer I used was sick of seeing me and taught me how to clean the heads, guides and rollers myself to restore performance and help prevent tapes being chewed. Head cleaning tapes simply did not reach the parts needing cleaning though the the wet type sometimes helped.

A VCR might work normally for several months and then suddenly it would happen again. Sometimes I needed to do a clean several times in a month. I did have a Sharp VCR once and that had something called an idler reel that would "suddenly" need replacing (several times) due to chewed tapes but other than that manual cleaning did the job every time.

Later VCRs were fitted with a self cleaner that worked well and meant there was no trouble for a long time but when the self cleaner became loaded with filth they actually made matters worse.
Matter of interest, I use clean newspaper and methylated spirit for cleaning.

My VCR won't play my movies! The tapes are fine its just when I put the tape in it just shows a scraggly screen. Everything is plugged in but my movies won't play. What do I do?


If the vcr is running the tape, your video head is probably dirty, try using a cleaning tape if you have one. The second option is use a brand new blank tape T120 and set the the machine to sp speed (2hr running time) and let the tape run the full course. The third option is to remove the lid of the vcr and carefully clean the video head with a swab dipped in rubbing alcohol rotating the head by hand as you proceed allowing several minutes to dry before loading your tape.

Video heads of Sanyo VWM-800 4 head vcr need cleaning.


Take the top off and spray the main head with Servisol Video 40. (image below) Also the tracking and audio heads.
Wait for it to dry before putting a tape in. In the future use only this it is much better and cheaper than cleaning tapes.

VHS tape keeps popping out of VCR.


I suggest you pull it apart and check the many drive belts, they may be defective and loose. If they are replace them all of them.

My vcr chewed up a tape and now it is not working right. When you put a tape in the vcr, "PLAY" will come on the screen as if it is going work. Then it goes to a blue screen and turns off.


If you are a handy person you could first unplug the VCR from the power outlet and remove the cover to see if some of the tape that was chewed up is wrapped around some of the tape path mechanism.
If you know someone techie who has some experience let them look at it and throw them a $20 for cleaning it.
May be best to just purchase a new DVD/VCR .

Vhs tape gets chewed


Dear William,
the rubber belts and rubber capstan need cleaning/conditioning. you can attempt this with alcohol swabs and if you find rubber conditioner (in the past was easy to find in audio supply stores) apply some of this also. if this treatment does not solve, then may need new rubber belt kit. good luck.
