I have a VHS slot as part of my TV receiver. I obtained a VHS movie from the public library and put it in the slot. It "clicked" in but all I see looks similar too static.

What is the problem? Solution?

@gollum,
Damaged cassette. VHS cassettes don't do well over repeated watchings. After a certain point the actual film in the cassettes get worn down.

Also, you might want to check out the VHS's head tracking. Most VHS's have a knob or set of buttons in which you have to manually tweak the 'VCR heads' so they can properly read the cassettes. Not much of a solution as for the most part, tracking can only clear up only so much of the static from overworn cassettes.

Borrowed VHS cassettes can damage your video machine. I avoided the problem by buying a DVD player. They are very cheap nowadays.
