Re: T-160 vhs tapes
No never cut the video tape at all.
with Help of your tape Rewinder unit(not in Video plaer deck) do forword and rewind for four -to five times and allow the tape for drying with the Room tempreature. then chek the quality of play back.
fine next time you try to regular T-120 -type tape
or copy with T-120-instead of T160. that will defenily help you.
best of luck.

Please do clean the head your VHS by using special head cleaner and check also your VHS mechanism and ensure it working well.
If still problem, your VHS head is defective and suggest to replace with new one
I can only believe that you did not connect everything (the yellow video cable) correctly.
Tape to tape copies are normal and typical. Please consider retrying - and just do a few minutes of test video to confirm that it is working.
If you were doing a digital translation, I could understand a problem - but VHS to VHS should be a straight copy.....
Let us know how the test works. (BTW, I had a bad quality video cable - and had to replace it with another - which worked (and everything would display on my TV but would not copy onto another tape. My expert said that a copy protection thing in the record mode of the VHS recorder was the issue - ONLY a strong signal will be copied.
If you are feeling adventurous, you might expose the VCR mechanism and with pure alcohol and cotton swabs, try to clean the stationary tape guides.
There shouldn't be many of them on if they are contaminated, they can randomly 'catch and release' the tape causing the effect you mention.
From your previous experiments, it doesn't sound like a dirty or defective head but you might inspect it for any deposits and carefully remove them with the alcohol/swab combination.
If you see no deposits, I would leave the head alone; they don't really like to be touched by anything unless necessary.
