Question about Sony SLV-660HF VHS VCR

1 Answer

Sony SLV 660HF

Two Problems:

1) It often squeaks loudly when fast forwarding a tape. Mostly in the first 3 hours of a 6 hour tape.

2) It will not eject the tape fully, starts to and sucks it back in right before it enters the outside of the vcr. Unplugging the power didn't solve this probem.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

No video display from Sony SLV-ED10 Video Record Player


The video head is probably dirty, buy a blank VHS 120 tape, set speed to sp about 2 hours running time, and let the tape run. This works like a dry cleaning tape and is safe, repeat up to 3 times if required. I do not recommend wet tapes to ******* the video head.

Will I be able to convert from VHS format to DVD using the SLV-660HF assuming I have the converter cable and software?


Don't see why not. Search E-Buyer.Com for something called Videomate C100 Video Audio Capture Card, that will set you on the right track to record on to DVD, software included to make DVD's.

I have model cd 3424 and cant set clock


This was taken from a radio similar to yours. Same brand but different model. Hopefully it'll help.

(Also the "SEL" button it talks about is a big round button/knob on the right of the unit.)

Setting the Time

This receiver uses the 12-hour display notation.

1 Turn [SEL] button to select CLOCK ADJ.

2 Press the [SEL] button.
The clock adjustment mode is activated.

3 Turn [SEL] button to display the item to be selected for
adjustment.
Hours, minutes or exact hour will be switched each time the
button is turned.

4 Press the [SEEK / FAST] button.
[SEEK] button: Turns the time forward.
[FAST] button: Turns the time back.
To set the clock to 0 minutes, 0 seconds (an exact hour),
press the [SEEK / FAST] button.
For example:
At 3:29: Pressing the [SEEK / FAST] button returns to 3:00.
At 3:30: Pressing the [SEEK / FAST] button advances to 4:00.

5 Press the [RTN] button.
At this time, other adjustments can also be made in
Function Mode.

6 Press the [FUNC] button to exit Function Mode.

I have a Sony SLV-EZ717


It sounds like the taped program was recorded on a different speed. The other VCR that you are playing the taped program may not have the speed needed to play it correctly.
Next time when you record a program try to make sure you use a speed that will be compatible on both VCRs.
For example a tape that last 120 minutes, using the different speeds will give the following recording times.
SP means "Standard Play" >>>> 2 hours
LP means " Long Play" >>>>> 4 hours
ELP means " Extra Long Play" 8 hours

Older VCRs have all the 3 speeds but newer ones only have SP and ELP.
Hope this helps.

SLV-660HV Will not load


If you removed the tape carriage assembly, gear timing is probably off, assuming it is gear driven. Being one tooth off will prevent things from working properly. Gears will often have a mark (like an arrow or dot) which must be lined up with each other, in a mode specified in manufacturer service literature. Another possibility is sensors. There are sensors (usually optical) which tell the logic when the tape is properly loaded. If one of these is broken, or otherwise non-functional, logic circuitry will go into error mode, and, in this case, eject tape & display an error code. Lastly, check your mode switch. This tells the logic what position the mechanicals are in (gears/levers/slides). Again, if this is awry, you will have an error condition.

Sony SLV-940HF VCR Will not accept tape


Dear Rob, There can be two reasons for your problem.Let us consider the simpler and most likely cause.....Belts!!! Unplug the Plug from the Power socket. Open up the top and bottom Panels.Check the belts. Most likely you will find a belt has snapped ( a 80% possibility) or become very very loose. Also check the Tape Loading mechanism,there is a small belt which connects from the Loading motor to the Loading Mechanism. Replace the belts as a entire set. Let me know if this worked out. Good Luck.
