- Real Name
Today I was watching a tape and the picture started to go black and white fuzzy (just like a TV station that does not come in at all) and then it went away and the picture was fine, then it came back again and so forth, it comes and goes. It was not the tape because I tried a few more and they did it as well. The VCR is a three-year-old Sony that cost me $100. Does anyone know what could be the problem here? Could it be as simple as the heads needing cleaning? Or is the player junk? I really don’t feel like buying a new VCR as I don’t own too many VHS tapes, but on the other hand I would still like to have one for the rare times when I want to watch them, so it would piss me off the player was junk. Thanks for any advice.
