This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Stop Paying .. ????


if the take up side gets stuck it could feed excess tape and stop the mechanism. Look to see if both reels are turning when you push play. Remove cassette door for a better view if possible.

Make sure your tapes have NO slack in them. Fast forward and rewind one cassette all the way, then try again looking to see if both sides are turning. If not, you may have a belt that is old, stretched and slipping or it's split apart or just fallen off

Some of my Hi8 tapes play in fastforward motion along with the audio, but the other tapes play just fine. What can I do?


Clean the header of your camera. Buy a different camera to play those tapes. Try looking for a tape cleaner and tape lubrificant. Some tapes go so dry and overheat while playing on your camera that they end up on a blue screen and only play on FF and most of times not even that.

A good advice is to keep your tape cold, camera cold and try again.

Dont heat your tapes.

Also try battery playback, so it does not over heat with the power supply on.

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.

Eats my Cassette Tapes


Ok sound like the play head is out of a-line ment - easy way to fix if it is this - remove from the mains supply and open the cassette deck door - press the play button down and look at the play head there is 2 screws 1 either side 1 is fixed and 1 is sprung - now inset batterys (much safer) - try and fit a cassette in without using the cassette door should just fit in then press play and ajust the Right hand side scree with a small screwdriver (insulated) and ajust slightly to the left or to the right and this should fix the chewing - to get it just right use headphones ajusting left to right will tke the sound + & - to each earphone. Warning dont turn to far to the left as this will undo the screw completely - u have a least 1 whole turn either way is fine

VCR will not play tapes


Just the usual problem of needing the rubber belts replaced.
Buy a kit of them for your model from all kinds of sites on the net and install them yourself (if your handy with delicate mechanisms).

Tape deck does nothing when play is pressed


Maybe a problem of no power to motor. I own 2 identical Aiwa units, both have tape deck problems. This brand is prone to them They also have nasty habit of tape cassette doors jamming.
1st off you never said how old the unit is. Awia have huge amount of models. Mine are the NX series that came out in black plastic. Most of the others are silver/grey. Honestly, unless you pop side screws and lift the cover off to eyeball anything loose. and none is? And if out of warrenty, the value of fix, mat exceed value of unit.
Sorry, but I see many of these,  of 4-5 yr old units Aiwa brand,
get the heave ho! 
The most stupid thing about this is: for units size, has the best sound of any other brand it's size.. Brilliant for hooking to ones TV sets, for  surround sound!
What I did was get an older getto blaster  that plays tapes to play my tapes on. some of these units are around and in good order, dirt cheap. And most electronic equipment problems cost at least $35  just to have a quick look at your unit.. cost of repair on top?  I brought my 1st one new @ well over a grond. 3 yrs later, 2ns one, exactly the same $15.00 in a charity shop. The  laser unit was dusty. All go in half an hr. Perhaps if it is an older model , look for another mate to it,   It all comes down to costs.
Which is better option... you are the one who has to made the choice. Good luck. Jamz

Will not play back


Usually if there is no impact injury involved or nagging intermittent past problems, you probably have a head cleaning issue. Try a dry type (reccomended) cleaning tape. Should be able to purchase at Best Buy or similar store. Good luck, magic seadog
