Re: vcr record problems

It sounds like the back tension is off on the unit. the back tension is controled by a small band attached to a copper or metal strip and that ia wraped around the supply reel and is adjust by an arm that swings out and contacts the tape during record or playback and keeps a steady tension on the tape. If the back tension band breaks or wears out you will get a picture that looks like the tracking is off or bad or dirty video heads. Most likly you do not have a backtension gauge and it certainly would not be fesable for you to purchace one as a good one cost about 100 bucks or so. A repair shop may beable to adjust it for you, But even their fee may be cost prohibitive. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this.

Hitachi remote CLU 3851WL. What is the code for DVW-7200 DVD/VCR?

I doubt that your Hitachi remote is a universal type that would allow you to search for a code. You may have to substitute a universal remote and program it to control both your Hitachi TV and your Sanyo DVD/VCR.
