Start off with using a vcr tape cleaner make sure you read instructions some are just a brush while some others cleaners have a small liquid cleaner to add to it after using cleaner do not worry about rewinding it until another day you may need it.you can also try switching the progressive scan off if being used.If its eating tapes the tensioner could be loose or wore out or the locking mechanism is not working properly when tape is inserted.If you are not experienced in this field I recommend letting a shop look at it if so cleaning it is about the only thing you do also try opening the vcr tape bay door taking a deep breath and blow inside it without a tape in it do this several times it may just be dust and you can try unplugging it for 10 minutes to reset the device to see if its a stuck communication glitch in the board for the head motors.I hope one of these three basic tricks helps you.

Hi,
VCR video signal wont come out from Component Video Out of combo unit, it is low resolution signal so you need to hook yellow-red-white video cable in tv for VCR output.
Make sure to select VCR as source in combo while playback of VHS tape and select DVD as source when playing dvd disc in combo.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

My toshiba tv/vcr/dvd combo wont play dvd's anymore. Is this worth getting fixed? Is there a warrenty for the dvd ? Or should I just buy a new tv and dvd ?


No. Usually it will cost you more money than gettting it fixed. If I make a suggestion. I would get a stand alone dvd, because if the dvd goes out in the television then the tv may not work.

VCR tape playback not good


Check your "tracking" If the tape played fine in the old machine, then tracking is the answer, provided that the new machine records good.

On some of the DVD/VCR combo units, the VCR output is only available through the RF jack (channel 3), standard video1.gif (yellow) RCA jack and S-VIDEO jack. If you are using the Component jacks, the DVD side will work but the VCR will not. This is because the quality of video recorded on VHS tapes is so much lower than component quality video.
Thank you for rating this solution.
