Question about Broksonic CTSGT8118T 13 in. TV/VCR Combo

1 Answer

Unable to record or playback VCR tapes

The TV works well. However, when I put in a tape, all I get is static on the screen. I can hear audio but there is no picture. I've made sure that there are no foreign objects inside. I've plugged up another VCR to the TV and it will play tapes fine however; I cannot record from the TV using the other VCR. I get nothing. If I record from the built-in VCR I only get audio again. Please help! This has been going on for a few months now and I do not know if I need to take it to get it fixed or if there is something I can do myself. Thanks!

All you can do by yourself unlesss you are a tech. Is run a head cleaner tape through it. It sound like a dirty head to me. Here is something a lot of people do not know, The video head and the audio head in a VCR are two separate heads. thats why you can loose picture and not sound. Best taken apart and cleaned manually with rubbing alchol but not advisable if you are not experienced due to high voltage and if cleaning improperly you can damage the unit worse. Good Luck
