SOURCE: tapes keep getting stuck

we have 4 of the decks. they will often fail to unload panasonic and maxell tapes, i think its due to the design of the reel bases. sony tapes always work fine, they are flat where the others have a groove.

Hi, I have a sony tvr 140E. When I try to play back a tape that was recorded from another digital 8 camcorder I get blue screen. when I play back a tape recorded on my camcorder plays fine. Any...


This smacks of the same problem that the old VCR's used to have. One of you are out of sync. The tape records on a portion of the tape in a sort of straight line track. Think of it as your track is down 1/16" from the top. The other camera tracks it's video down 1/8" instead. That's why in playback it can't read it. The only cure is a realignment. Nimsgame

When playing a vhs tape the pics jump half way through watching. trying to record these old family tapes to dvd. is there a type of vcr i can buy to manually fix tracking or is there another way to solve...


There are two reasons that might cause loss of tracking halfway into a video tape. The first means you can't really do a lot about it. To check it is this is simple. When you get to the point the video jumps, stop the VCR and eject the tape. The look at the tape itself by lifting the flap at the front (push the small catch on the right side). Examine the section of the tape. If you see any damage to the tape (it should look smooth and shine) then it will never track properly.
Another cause of the jumping is caused by the take up reel, getting sluggish. Sometimes these are run off a belt, that becomes slack, replacing it could solve the problem, or it could be something else in the mechanism that's causing it.
There is another solution, particularly if the tape wasn't recorded on the machine that is playing it back. I haved used loads of different VCR's and I found that the tracking has never been set up right on any! This means that only the VCR it was recorded on generally gives the most correct playback.
Having said that it is possible to get a VCR with really good tracking. I have found that Panansonic VCR's have the best tracking. I currently have a NV-HS900 which can track just about everything, but you will only get one seconed-hand now.

Vhs tapes recorded to DVD+R's


try forwarding the tape to the end and then rewind to the start again, this can help to seat the tape correctly on the spindle . the audio track part of the tape is in a specific region on the tape so misalignment may be the issue with those cassettes.

also try to press the tracking up and down when playing the video

Blocks of noise


Don't know about the slow motion, but the noise is usually from dirty heads. Just like a cassette player it needs them cleaned periodically. Dip a Q-tip in rubbing alcohol and rub over the entire path the tape takes. You'll see a little block that actually reads the tape. Thats what you need to clean.

Make sure you eject the tape and remove the battery while the tape drive is open to clean it. Rubbing alcohol dries fast but give it an extra ten minutes and check it again.

Video recorder while the heads were dirty will not change however new video should be clean.

You may also have a bent tape carrier that is putting your video off track. It needs to be pushed or pulled to realign it.

It it's not the cause though, this can make playing back the earlier tapes more difficult since they will read and record in a slightly different part of the tape.


Good luck!

GR-D72 Mini DV Digital Camcorder makes clicking sound when tape running


the clicking is from the capstain turning the tape -- and perhaps the metal cage holding the tape.. if it is bent then the movement of the capstain may be pushing it in an eccentric fashion.

send it in for repair.

Vcr tape problem


It sounds like the tracking information is being lost for brief periods of time. Tracking is recorded at the lower edge of the tape, and if the tape is wrinkled or otherwise damaged in this area, playback will go out to lunch. A visual check of the tape would be in order. Have the heads been cleaned in these machines? This would be another area to check.... Also, there could be small differences in the tape path alignments, perhaps the control/audio head alignment is slightly different between the 2 machines.

My camcorder not playing back


First, try head cleaning by trained technician. Tech will clean manually with cleaning chemical each head to make sure video heads are performing 100%. Otherwise, they will probably quotes you for tracking adjustment. Head cleaning is typically around $25-50. Tracking adjustment might cost you around $100-200 in US depending on service time.
