Many camcorders brands used a surface mount capacitor that has a shelf life that lasts about 5-7 years or so. At the moment all those caps are going bad all through the cam. I would replace all or none. Good luck

Hook up for dbx model 224 type 2

Handy private archive of dbx reference material and service manuals...

dbx searchable...

The manual for the 224X which is different in that it adds front panel lightshow and level adjustments. Otherwise, functionally the same.

Be advised that this is a two-ended system that must be used on Playback if it is used on Record. Don't bother using it for anything but analog TAPE. CDR-Audio has plenty of dynamic range and no noise floor to speak of.

If you dont already have one, I advise you to get a dbx 400x or 400x-ds to manage the 224 and any other processors you may have. It is an amazing piece of equipment that allows you to place 3 processor loops before or after the encode/decode loop, or bypass them altogether or in any combination, PLUS you can dub encoded or non-encoded music to or from either encoded or non-encoded music unlike the previous dbx 200 or 200x. I have the 224x plus a 400x and a number of other dbx, Pioneer, BSR, Carver, BBE, SAE and ADC goodies; and have created some impressive cassettes back in the day, given the limitations in speed stability. Now-a-days I make impressive CD's of old analog source recordings with improved dynamics, less noise and zero wow and flutter.

Look for a 400x on eBay. Snipe it at the last 10 seconds if you don't want to bid against yourself..

Picture rolls on playback

Try cleaning the heads, but it seems like the heads may be faulty, you might need to replace the vcr, they don't cost much these days, the repair might cost more than a new vcr these days.

heres a cheap headcleaner, look for one at local shops, wallmart bestbuy and so on

I want to know how to track c.d. when recording,I don't have a remote??

If you mean you don't know how to manually mark a track in Manual Mode >>while<< recording on the fly:

Toggle the Auto/Manual button to Manual

Press the SKIP/Search right arrow button for tray B while recording whenever you want to increment the track number.

Pausing or stopping the recording also increments the next track number. There is no way to manipulate the actual number assigned to any track. It is alway PLUS 1 from the last track.

I always use Manual track numbering on my Pioneer machine when recording analog sources because many machines (like yours) will interpret a short silence as a track break. This may not necessarily be what you want to happen.

After recording a program using the Toshiba W522, the picture rolls and jumps up and down, while in playback mode. I have no problem with recording, its just when its time to actually watch the program,...

If the tapes are old or cheap, they may simply be no good. However, I found that the automatic tracking is the best thing to ensure perfect quality picture and sound.

Can't read the date/time

There may be a simple explanation. Here are two possible reasons this is happening: * You may have disconnected the power source before turning off the power to your camcorder. If you remove the power source from the camcorder while the power is on, all settings and selections will be erased. Make sure to turn the camcorder's power off before disconnecting the power source. * This is particularly an issue for some early VHS-C camcorders – those with model numbers beginning with a "6" and ending with a "2" or "3" (i.e. CC6xx2 … CC6xx3). These camcorders have a consumer-replaceable clock battery that may be exhausted. If that battery runs dead or is removed and the main battery or AC is not connected, the camcorder will lose all its Date and Time settings. * In some models, the date and time display is designed to do this. When you turn on many VHS-C and digital camcorders, the Auto Date mode will display the time and date. When recording begins, the date is recorded on the tape for 5 seconds and then disappears. In the viewfinder, the date will then be replaced with the words AUTO DATE but they will not be recorded. They remain in your viewfinder so that you know this feature is on. On full-size or VHS camcorders, the Auto Date feature is very similar. When you first turn on the camcorder, the date along with the word AUTO and a Clock icon appear in the viewfinder. When recording begins, the date is automatically recorded for 10 seconds and then disappears. In the viewfinder, the Clock icon and the word AUTO remain but they will not be recorded. They remain so that you are aware that this feature is on. When using the Auto Date feature, be aware that the time is only recorded when you first turn on the camcorder and begin a recording session. It does not record each time you press the record button. There are a number of time and date display and recording options. Since these vary by model number, please refer to your owner’s manual for more details.

Should I use automatic or manual while recording?

Select RCA camcorders feature both an Automatic and a Manual recording mode. Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shot™ mode. Focus, exposure, iris control, white balance, and the video light are controlled by the camcorder during Automatic recording. This mode is particularly handy for those times when you want to be able to just point the camera and record. The Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the elements above yourself, as well as many of the camcorder's special features including Animation and Time Lapse. Manual mode is also where you access the menus and set the clock. Make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode.

I can't start recording.

# You may not have turned on the camcorder to record properly. For camcorders that feature both Automatic and Manual recording, make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode. # Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shot™ mode, while Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the camcorder's special features, including accessing the menus and setting the clock. # For many other camcorders, make sure the CAMERA/OFF/VCR switch is set to CAMERA. Make sure the Erase Protection tab is in the position that allows recording. If not, slide the tab. Some tapes have removable tabs. If the tab has been removed, simply cover the hole with adhesive tape or use another tape.
