You can purchase a VCR cleaning tape that will do the job. However the best way is to buy a can of Servisol Video 40 (small one will do and it will last a long time) then remove the top cover of the VCR. Spray the VCR heads. Shinny Silver things and any moving parts that the tape touches. If your not certain what to clean, with the cover off insert a tape and press play. Remove the tape and spray small amounts on the surfaces. If you can see a lot of dust you can wipe the heads etc with a cotton bud. A VCR housed in a smokers house will need extra work to get it clean. Once dry you can test a tape. If you see flecks or spots the VCR will need further cleaning.
No, the DVD section only plays DVDs, to record VCR tapes to DVD you need a ripping device that digitalize audio and video (convert step) and then transfer to DVD specifications this data to disk (record step). The easiest way to do this is using a USB video capture adapter connected to your PC with a DVD recorder drive installed, the software to do this commonly comes as a bonus in the setup disk of the adapter.
Hi this is a very common with vcr's the problem you are having is with the head inside the vcr what you can try is to go out and buy a vcr head cleaning kit this comes in the form of a tape and this will then clean the head for you without having to take the vcr apart.
but have you tried playing a new video to make sure its not the tapes your watching that are at fault, the problem with tapes is that over continued use the quality drops due to the tapes passing around the inside of the video also re-recording damages tapes so bare this in mind, i would try a new tape first then go for the head cleaning kit, if the new tape play rubbish then try the head cleaner and this will improve the quality, if the tape plays ok then its the tapes your using at fault.
you should be able to get a vcr head cleaning kit off the well known auction site or from most electrical stores,
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
I guess the easiest thing you can try , if you are handy with tools and a little knowledgeble with mechanical things is to replace the loading belt. Most of these problems are due to a loose belt(side of the cassette load mechanism) or inthe rear of the vcr mechanism(facing back cover)if this does not do it then i suggest geting it to a tv shop, might need timing align or end lamp replacement.
Most VCR's do have a sensor system inside. It consists of what looks like a bar that is standing up right in the middle of the area the tape sits down into, and sensors on one or both sides of the tape bay that detect this source. The source is usually an infrared diode, and it is most likely this diode that has malfunctioned. I would checjk to see if anything has gotten inside that might be blocking this sensor, if not then the diode probably needs replaced.
you should just have to plug the first vcr using the RCA jacks,(yellow,red,white). into the second vcr. so the output from the first vcr to the input of the other. then if you want to watch it while its recording though its not necassary you just plug the video/audio out of the second vcr into the tv. So the first vcr you play the tape in and the second you put the blank tape in and press record. Thats all there is to it. Let me know how it goes. Thanks, Lee
1st setup ur VCD with TV and playback it to view on TV. If picture is coming, thats OK.
2nd plug ur camcorder in VCR input and select VCR input according to plug in and monitor the camcorder picture on TV through VCR. If its ok, now u r ready to record the picture from camcorder to VCR.
I asked earlyer but i can't find my questin that was submitted earler today i gave you my email address with no results. I want to know where the nearest tv vcr reparemand is to Spencer okla my email is [email protected] and my phone No.is 580-782-2888 My mother is moving to Spincer Okla. and needs her vcr forward and reverse fixed,in her emerson tv/vcr combo
this combo unit as far as i know has only one power source which is in the vcr unit. if the vcr has a problem it affects the tv likewise. i beleive u did removed the tape, but unfortunately you misaligned the mechanism of the vcr which will in turn sense an error causing the automatic shuts off of the vcr and likewise the tv. u need to bring it to a qualified service technician if u dont know anything about this.
