Emerson ewc1302 13 in. tv/vcr combo problem

I have one of these units, which up until yesterday worked fine.  My son played a VCR tape in it, worked fine.  Later, we tried to play the same tape, you can hear the audio from the movie, no picture, just a snowy screen.  Other tapes are now the same way....sound but no picture.  Is there something that needs reset, or what?  This is a 2002 model.  Thank you!

We had that same problem. Try a VHS head cleaner. Worked for us.

My vcr plays commercially-recorded tapes fine, but tapes recorded on it or another VCR play with the sound distorted. The picture seems fine.


Sounds like its mechanism need some alignment. Guide pole alignment. Contact any service technician. This is technically skilled work. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Video on my Sony VCR (SLV-780HF) goes gray after playing a tape a few seconds. What could be the problem?


The only real cure will be to clean the video head. If that doesn't work then I'm afraid that whatever recorded you EP mode tape was not set up well tracking wise. So other machines struggle to track the tape. Some VCR's will only playback SP or LP tapes and don't have EP mode. In which case you should check to see if these VCR's can play the EP tape and if they can't find one that can.

VCR Model Panasonic NV-J45:- Until just yesterday, it worked fine, only last night I tried to play a tape, the green auto-tracking light flashed a few times as usual, then the tape just kept stopping, no...


The problem is caused by the idler assembly which controls play, record, rewind, and fast forward. If the take up reel stops, the vcr senses a problem and will stop the tape. The only other thing it can be is the drive belt, sometimes it will stretch and fall off or break. I suggest a tv technician or somebody that knows their way around a machine.

LG ALL MULTI REGION CODE ZONE FREE DVD RECORDER PLAYER VCR COMBO I paid over $300 for this combo and it worked fine the first few days. Now, the vcr wont play, it was attempt to play then just eject...


Have to take the cover of the unit and observe the vcr rejecting the tape action. If it is the take up wheel not working; you might keep the unit on vcr for a few weeks. this will dry up the circuit from condensation and take up wheel will work again?

Sansui DVD/VCR remote control issue, VCR works/DVD does not-black


There should be a DVD/VCR button on the remote control which will toggle the machine from one playback source to another. If she has pressed the VCR button then the machine will only playback tapes & not show DVD's. Press this button & the DVD's should play. If you look closely at the front window of the machine it will show what mode it is in ie VCR or DVD, set this for the DVD to get it to play.

Memorex MVD4544 VCR will not record


Take the unit back to the store and exchange it for an other unit of the same. The likelyhood of two units not working is very slim, and good luck with your new unit.

I have a Sony SLV-EZ717


It sounds like the taped program was recorded on a different speed. The other VCR that you are playing the taped program may not have the speed needed to play it correctly.
Next time when you record a program try to make sure you use a speed that will be compatible on both VCRs.
For example a tape that last 120 minutes, using the different speeds will give the following recording times.
SP means "Standard Play" >>>> 2 hours
LP means " Long Play" >>>>> 4 hours
ELP means " Extra Long Play" 8 hours

Older VCRs have all the 3 speeds but newer ones only have SP and ELP.
Hope this helps.

DRC 8335 Playing Back VCR Recordings in a Fast Forward State


I bought mine yesterday and am having the same issues. No solution listed in the user manual to fix this and I have a rather extensive VHS tape library that I was hoping to move to DVD using this unit. Unable to watch any VHS tapes taped on my Panasonic VCR and it seems as if the tape is slipping. Tracking buttons don't fix anything. I found a blank spot at the end of the tape and taped something and it comes out fine. Could this have something to do with it being a 6 head VCR? Tapes are in SLP mode.

JVC HR A62U VCR


I was wondering if you tryed unplugging vcr for an hour then
plugging it back up. sometimes this resits it and it will work fine.
the tape might eject itself out or eject button might work.
