T-160 vhs tapes

They are defective What should I do?

  • Anonymous Feb 13, 2008

    My BASF T-160 "Extra Quality" video tapes often display a wandering thick horizontal line of static during playback, ruining the image of programs I've recorded over the years. This may or may not be associated with fast fowarding or reversing to cue the tape. My local video store person told me that these extra-long tapes use the same case as regular T-120 which is not properly designed to handle the extra amount. She says there is nothing that can be done as a repair. I'd be willing to cut out a big chunk to get the tape down to a manageable amount if that is the problem (and if I knew how to do that). Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks

Vhs-c tape stuck in adaptor

You will have to disassemble the player enough to get access to the adapter and free it up. Once the adapter is free, you will have to troubleshoot it to determine whether it is damaged or defective and whether the tape can be played.

I can hear my vhs, but not see it. I have no problem with my other VHS'. How do I fix the tape?

Try a different tape. If it do the same probably your VHS video head is dead. The audio and video uses a different head.

Picture and sounds cracks when using vhs tapes, but works fine when I use the vhs-c with converter. Why do my full size vhs tapes not work? I tried on both my laptop and pc and it does the same thing. At...

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.
Good luck-
