Has anyone used this VCR?

Recommended Posts

Arkwright

I have been using a Samsung SV-5000W VHS VCR for a long time, and have had good use with it, except that it has a recurring problem. Sometimes when I play a video, I see light electric "snow" on the TV, and I find that slightly tilting the VCR takes away this problem. Is there anybody who has used this machine and experienced the same problem, and is there a way of permanently fixing it?

Hi Arkwright,

Back in the day I used to buy theses swabs, open the VCR's cover and clean the playing heads with it, no more stripes/snow.

Kind regards

Good morning

Thank you for your suggestion. As a matter of fact, I have cleaned the heads already, but at times, the snow comes back.

Kind regards

Would a warm jacket help against the snow, or am I too old for this thread ,..??
