Everything seems tight, and I have not tried altering the height yet. Use a cotton swab moistened with rubbing alcohol, or other video head cleaner and clean this head, especially the lower edge, as the tracking info is recorded along the lower edge of the tape if memory serves. To remove the display from your television screen, press the On Screen button on the remote control. The volume button on my remote control is not working. This isn't very hard and usually only a very slight adjustment will fix many very bad play-back issues.
Unfortunately, when I eject and re-insert the tape, it does the same thing auto-tracks to a less-than-ideal result, jumps vertically. Thanks for the advice; it's really appreciated. To change the language, access Language in the menu and then select the correct language. One possibility mentioned is the roller guide height. If you find the fuse is good then you have a power supply standbye voltage missing and is related to the power supply. Or are the tapes broken beyond repair? With it on, say you want to record a program that starts at 9pm and finishes at 10pm. To clear the clear the counter, press the Cancel button on the remote control.
Thx for sending the bag to our door. That should answer most of your problems. Please consult your operator manual for further instructions. Sharps with picture or Toshibas are also good. The key will start to flash and then disappear.
You would then set your cable box to the channel you want to record. Look at the bottom of your remote control to see if you have a tracking button on it. When I play back what I have recorded with my timer, all I get is a snowy picture. With it on, say you want to record a program that starts at 9pm and finishes at 10pm. Push the left tracking button on your remote several times to see if it has any effect on the video and then push the right hand button if you still have problems with tracking. How can I watch one program and record another? When it comes down to it, price really is king. I've had a bit of a read in your forums already but I was wondering if you could tell me if this is a lost cause or not as I'm starting to lose hope! If open or blown replace with same voltage and Amperage rating as indicated on the board or the fuse itself.
If the vcr's you have are not giving you good images then yes a new vcr would be a good, any hardware enhancements cannot do better than giving the vhs a good vcr to start with. I can ask them when they get up tomorrow, but I'm not sure that they'll remember it. It finally pegged out in 2001 but I have a whole heap of video tapes that I recorded in the last stages of its life. If I can clarify anything, please ask and I'll try my best to answer helpfully. Then all you need is set the control to on, when you set the timer recording, and the video will record your show, even if it starts at say 9.
You can do this by: Taking the batteries out of the remote control. Given my symptom, does this seem like a likely possibility? I'm convinced that this behavior is not erratic ie: the auto-tracking seems to consistantly drive the tracking to the same poor spot with residual vertical jumping. This is all a useless endeavour though if the bad content was actually taped this way. The audio on the programmes with issues is fine - it's just the picture which is disrupted by horizontal black bars which constantly scroll up the screen. I've found that as long as there is audio it's almost, 90%, fixable.
But I did find a solution. The number keys on my remote control will not operate my television. Try as I may, I am unable to converge on a mechanical setting that works consistantly. We suggest checking the date and time in your menu. Hiya guys, I'm a bit new to all of this, so I apologise if you've gone over all of this stuff a thousand times already. We were about to throw it out, until I played around with it some more.
Press the volume up and down button several times or try pushing the channel up and down buttons. Not happy with a call before 6am or the damage to the bag though. They all play with better quality than I seem to remember, too. Another possibility is a problem with tape travel past this head. To remove it, press the Input button on the remote control to remove it. How do I turn that off? I have no schematic or service documentation. Sorry, last question - the horizontal black bars that scroll up the screen do so consistently throughout entire programmes and not just for a few scenes or frames.
