    Could anyone point me in the right direction with this problem. After
    recording a program and then playing it back the video will not
    display but the audio is fine. If I playback a movie everthing is
    fine. I cleaned the machine but still nothing changes. Any help would
    be appreciated.

    Try cleaning it again.... and again......
    .....Stubborn head clogs can be just that.... "stubborn"
    The reason you may be seeing a movie play OK and that a recording is not OK
    is most likely because you are playing a movie at the SP speed and you are
    trying to record a program at the SLP or EP (6 hour) speed. A different
    set of video heads is used for each of those two speeds...... a 4 head VCR
    only uses one set of 2 heads for normal recording and playback operations
    for each speed..... so if your trying to record a program at the 6 hour
    speed and it doesn't work it is could be that there is still a dirty set of
    heads..... could be other things of course, but the first and most simple
    thing to do is to clean the heads again. You may want to go to the website
    for this newsgroup at
    There, with some searching you will find a wealth of VCR information
    including the PROPER and SAFE cleaning procedures. Be careful, the video
    heads can be easily broken or damaged.
    Clean it again..... or have it professionally cleaned by a shop..... and or
    "hands-on" evaluated by a tech for a repair cost estimate so you can make an
    intelligent repair decision with fact instead of internet guesses.
