That means the head is sticky or the takeup rollers are icky
take it apart . clean all the parts the tape touches with something thats strong but little water .
as for the head very carefull clean it when you get to the actual holes where heads are only use a proper qtip wetted . look it up or youll break them.
on the rubber rollers scrub them . then load the tape an watch it run.
its easy to fix this but you need a nice clean place an some small phillips , take pics of parts/screws if needed

Found many family TXK E-HG TC-20 tapes. What device do I need to see these?


The TC encoding usually stood for VHS-C type of tapes. These were created so that VHS type manufacturers could compete with the HI-8 type of camcorders that came out years ago. They were essentially regular VHS tapes that were shrunk down in size to allow them to build smaller camcorders.You could either play them back directly from the camera itself, or you could use the adapter that came with the camera that allowed you to play the tape back from a regular VHS VCR. The adapter was the size of a regular VHS tape, and it had a lid on the top that you would open and drop your VHS-C tape into it.

If you still have a VHS VCR you could watch the tapes using an adapter. If you do not have one you can search on the web for both the adapter and a VHS VCR if need be. Depending on the size of the city you live in there may be a conversion outfit that can take your VHS-C tapes and burn them onto DVD's for you. Prices varied quite a bit on that service so you should do a little shopping around if that is the way you want to go.

Conversion vhs to dvd


I can only offer you 1 option for this case.
In converting the VHS video tape to DVD you can use computer. All you need to have is the VHS player with RCA audio video cables. Then a computer that has video capture card or USB capture card. This will take time but you can just transfer all the copyrighted videos to DVD and to computer data (post to internet)

*Needs realtime transfer VHS to Computer with the prefered resolution option.
*Burn to DVD, it will depends on your DVD drive speed.

I need a VHS adapter for the JVC Mini DV tapes


not available - the tapes are different widths for a start, and the two formats use different compression techniques. Adapters are available for VHS-C to VHS because the tape width and the recording format are the same.

Accidently recorded over important material on a vhs tape. Is there anyway I can retrieve it??


I'm afraid not. When you record, the record heads automatically erase everything that was previously on that tape. So whatever footage was on that tape is gone for good. Sorry!
