It's not possible for a video to damage a VCR. The VCR is always the cause, whether it be dirty heads, or mishandling by the patron(angrily ripping the video out of the machine if it gets stuck). It's like saying "the hammer hit my fingers"

there is another side to this question. We have dealt with outraged
patrons who claim our videotape has damaged their VCRs. We post a notice
that the library will not be responsible.
