You need to clean the video heads. This can be easily done by buying a VHS head cleaning tape, although this may not give the best results. If you are comfortable with taking the cover off the machine (WITH THE POWER DISCONNECTED), then you can access the heads directly. The heads are mounted on an aluminium cylinder about 6cm in diameter, which rotates at an angle to the tape and scans diagonally across the tape. The actual heads are very small (only 2 or 3mm wide) and are located at the bottom edge of the cylinder. There are usually 4 of these on newer VHS players. Gently clean the heads and the cylinder if it looks dirty, using a cotton bud and cleaning fluid (isopropyl alcohol) or a similar alcohol based cleansing wipe e.g. lens cleaner, or LCD screen cleaner etc. Too much force on the heads could break them so be careful.
These heads only read the picture information. The audio is recorded linearly along the edge of the tape and is read by a different fixed head.

I dont think you will be able to get the video picture to work, unless you connect a UHF lead from video to TV then tune tv into video. Digital and analogue generally dont talk to each other.
Hope this helps.

    with scart connector video can run in the Audio / Video mode, you check the problem with
    only particular casset or all. change other casset. clean the video head and capstan wheels and other mechanism.

Cannot record externally from Humax bt you View box onto Toshiba RDXV60KB ( HDD & DVD modes). As I previously could? I am getting message E26 " Cannot record from this program". But the Tos


This error e26 gets thrown up on some digital rights management programs.this really just means you are not allowed to record...ever increasingly thanks to the big corps like sony drm carrier signals are put into some broadcasts to overcome copying infringements.there still is a way to do this with the right equipment.some tv channels get revenue from their advert counts so they put these signals in to ensure that you can only watch at broadcast or catchup on certain devices.what I can't figure out is I can record anything whilst it's being aired and still transfer to older equipment but not anything with latest ios and certainly not with sony recorders.

I have a Sharp Viewcam (Hi8) model number VL-H770. I'm wondering how I can connect this to my PC so that I can transfer the data from the Hi8 cassettes & burn to a disc on my pc. Any help appreciated.


You can get videos from this camera, or any analogue video source, into a computer. You just have to play them into an analogue video interface port. These are available as expansion slot cards for a PC, or sometimes as a USB plug-in interface. They will come with drivers and probably software to digitise the video input and record it to a file. Lots of third party video editing software will also be able to accept the input from this kind of port. You don't need any "driver" related to the camera, it is just a video signal source. The connecting leads will be standard RCA signal plugs, like the ones you use to connect to a TV or VHS recorder. You probably already have a lead for this.

Once you have the video on the computer, you will need DVD "Authoring" and burning software, which will usually come as part of the same package. You can download such software for free from the internet- my first stop would be www.download.com.

I have a Toshiba DVR19DTKB DVD & VHS Recorder with Freeview , A SKY + Box, A Panasonic NV-SD240BL Video cassette recorder, A Samsung PS42B450B1W 42'' Plasma TV, and would like see a diagram of how all...


connect the aerial to the dvd/vcr/freeview combo, connect a scart from that to the tv, from the scart out socket.
you can then connect the sky from the scart marked tv to either the tv direct or to the combo if it has a second scart.
Note. a scart socket with an arrow going into a box is an input, coming out of the boe is an output and a double arrow is a two way scart.
if you use scart 2 on the tv to connect the combo, the combo will recieve a signal from the tv for recording.

hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.

Dvd Recorders


Most DVD recorders have a "Scart" input. I assume your VHS has one also. conect a scart lead form the VHS to "Input" scart on DVD recorder. Select the "scource" of viewing on the DVD to "Scart", press record on the DVD and "Play" on the VHS and away you go. You should be able to view whats happening on your T.V. when you select the scart that the DVD is connected to on it.

Recording from DVR to Cassette using this?


Well, generally, you simply need a Cable of the RCA 3way A/V cable variety, usually with Red, Yellow & White RCA plugs on the end... there should be corresponding RCA Sockets on each machine.. Plug the leads in colour to colour, then insert tape in VCR and select the Auxiliary Input (Or whatever input it is actually called) to Record from... start "Recording" Then on the DVR start "Play" and ya should be all up & running. What I do first, is set it up on my TV first, using the RCA sockets, set it up so it is all playing clear picture etc.. then I connect up to the VCR. NB: There are "Other" types of "Inputs & Outputs" among them ones called "Composite Video" "S-VHS" "SCART" ALL of these have standard interconnect leads, so if on your machine you DO NOT have the RCA Sockets.. but have one of those "Other" simply procure a Male to Male Cable of that type & then simply substitute the alternate "Cable" for the "RCA" & the rest is the same.
