Dear Zepp,

Firstly, video is not a clear as DVD.

Suggestions:
Do the video heads need cleaning?
Is the video tape a bit worn?, Try another video tape.
Do the video tracking controls needs tweaking?

You will need to clean the heads of the VCR. This Is a very common problem for all VCRs. If you can pull the cover off,do so. Find a small piece of chamois, along with some alcohol used for cleaning fluid. Use only enough to moisten the chamois. Slowly rotate the VCR head as you wipe clean. Do not use cotton swabs in any case here. The cotton swabs will make things worse. You may purchase chamois sticks at your electronic store if you wish. The cure is simple and easy here. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

The picture on my vcr keeps going off or shows wavy lines when words come on screen why is this please?


Poor tracking possibly caused by a dirty video heads. I would use a head cleaning tape. Then adjust the tracking controls for best picture.

Head alignment


Tracking controls for VHS should have no effect on the DVD player. If a pre-recorded DVD is distorting the picture, along with the VHS, then there's either something wrong with the TV it's played on, or the connection, between the two. Or there is a fault in the electronics of the VHS/DVD combi that deals with the picture.

We were just watching a vhs movie on our tv/vcr combo unit and the picture went to fuzz however, the sound was still working. any suggestions or are we in need of a new unit.


Some VHS have a tracking button that allows the user to tune to the best signal. Usually that tracking function is used as follows.
While movie is playing on the VHS unit and signal gets fuzzy, press the channel key repeatedly (for example >> to increase the channel number). f after awhile pressing the same channel change button does not find a better picture, you should press the other channel change button (to decrease the channel number <<) to see if the picture improves.

If that does not work, IT DOES NOT MEAN that you tv/vcr combo unit is defective. It could just be the movie. The tape is magnetic and it might have been accidentally demagnetized.

If picture is better with another movie/tape, your unit is definitely OK.

Just want the Orion TV (Model: STV 2763) to play VHS videos


Problem Solved:

Take your connector with the 3 colors red,white & yellow and plug into VCR OUT. The other end (w/ 3 plugs) goes into the INPUT on the back of the TV. Next insert a VHS Tape & search the TV for input or a channel below #2 for Cable#1,2,3 or AUV Channel.

In this case; Channel AUX #1
Shows / Plays Video w/ clear sound & picture.
