Question about Sony SLV-775HF VCR

1 Answer

Sony SLV-775HF I have a problem with my VCR. The audio will be fine, but the VCR itself starts making a high pitched squealing noise and the picture loses color and goes wavy. I can't figure out which part might be broken. Do I need to replace the video heads? Thanks for your help. P.S. I tried with different VCR tapes, and I have the same problem with all of them.

Hi, Sounds like a mechanical problem in the tape path which can be anything from the pinch roller, take up spool, foreign object (such as splicing tape lodged somewhere), brake or others. An indicator would be stretch tape. One way to check if the tape is being stretch is to rewind partially one of the tapes you have tried, eject it and open the flap/cover of the cartridge. There is a stub on one of the side of the tape that you have to push to open it and see the actual tape. Stretching if any would be clearly visible. Am afraid that you would need the services of a qualified technician for the actual repair not unless you are familiar with video tape mechanism. On the video head, offhand, I doubt if it needs replacement.Of course an on site technician would be in a far better position to diagnose it for you. Hope this be of some help and pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

Sony SLV-R1000 VHS player does not power up.Tried a different power cord

Start with checking the fuse inside the recorder itself. If that is fine, check the internal power converter for any blown capacitors.

Maytag electric dryer is making a high pitched noise

The squealing noise is from the belt tensioner. Replace the pulley only on the tensioner along with a new belt. The bearing in the pulley is causing the squeal. Sears will sell this in a kit. The top and the front panel of the dryer will have to be removed to replace these parts

My 2004 Chevy Trailblazer is making a bizaar noise when I start it up. It's starts as a high pitch squeal then drops to a lower pitch squeal then ends in kind of a grind. Thought it was a slipping belt but...

Hi Eabyrd05.
It's possible that you have a Starter or Flywheel/Flex-plate issue. Your starter Bendix may not be completely disengaging from the flywheel like it should. I would take it to a mechanic that you trust and have them pull the starter and look at both the Flywheel/Flex-plate, Starter Bendix and solenoid. Hope this helps.

CAN NOT INSERT A TAPE WHEN POWER IS TURNED ON

Sony VCRs have shown these error codes for years whenever a problem occurs but it really does not help much to know what the code means. Even if you knew the code meaning you still would not know exactly what to fix in the VCR. Suffice it to say the VCR probably needs repair.

My washer has started making a high-pitched noise while spinning.

Hi
to chek what is wrong follow the bellow instruction....
Check the motor bearings
If your washing machine is making a high-pitched whine or squealing noise while running, the main culprit is usually worn motor bearings. To check the motor bearings, remove the belt and run the motor by itself, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise, than the problem is most likely the result of worn motor bearings and has nothing to do with issues in the rest of the washer.
Check for Obstructions
Sometimes coins, bra underwires and other metal objects come loose in the wash and become stuck between the tub and the drum. Using a flashlight, take a good look inside the washing machine. If you see dents, scratches or dings, that's a sign that there either are or have been items bouncing around in there that can make a horrible racket.
Check for Grease Spatter
A high-pitched squealing can be caused when the grease thins around the bearing that's located under the tub. Open up the washing machine and check the interior for grease spatters or spots. That could mean that the grease has thinned out around the bearing and it's making the noise because of rubbing.
Check the Drum for Irregularities
Spin the drum by hand, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise in the same spot with each rotation, the problem could be with the washing machine drum itself. Parts of the drum can corrode over time, leaving it vulnerable to cracks or rust.

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Indicator lights with high pitched squealing sounds.

check the alternator drive belt,it may be loose and squealing.
the alternator itself could be also making a noise.
start the car with the hood open and listen to it.
look if the belt is cracked,loose or wet from oil or water etc.
things like thermostat housings leaking coolant can cause something like that.
