Question about Panasonic AG-DS555 S-VHS VCR
I just got this deck and I love it. I'm a ham guy/computer tech., have solder station, can perform surgery.
You mentioned replacing all the caps on the vid boards. Before I do this, I notice lots of internal trim pots. Is it possible the unit needs a tune-up? Seems to get more stable after warmed up -- jog/shuttling back and forth will eventually get it to lock on. Does it playing tape as well as video in, so I'm convinced it's in the output somewhere -- TBC, video out. This deck won't let you turn the TBC off? Tried the setup procedure from the user manual for the TBC. Any help appreciated. Sounds like you really know your stuff. Actually, mine is the AG-DS550. Cheers, Duncan McAllister
Change in stability after warm-up is a sign of defective capacitors. the DS550 and DS850 both are notorious for capacitor failures. don't touch the trim pots unless you have a service manual and a wfm/vectorscope.
