Jumping screen on sylvania 6240ve

When I record a tv show and replay it, the image jumps like there is not a horizontal control. I use new tapes and clean the vcr heads regularly. There is no tracking knob. How do I get a non-jumping image.

Press the Channel up & down buttons at the same time and on most VCRs this deactivates auto tracking option. then press the up or down channel button to adjust tracking.You might try this first. pressing them both at same time reactvates auto tracking. This might not solve the problem but at least you eliminated one possibility.

Issue I believe with the Horizontal Synch


Hi this problem sounds like the tape was damaged somehow maybe faulty when you brought it because if you had no problems using a different tape then that rules out the head been damaged inside the video so i would say the tape was faulty.
Also you are right they dont make videos anymore and eventually wont be able to buy blank tapes the best format that you should invest in is a camcorder that takes memory cards these can hold alot more than the tapes can and the quality is 100 times better and less likely to fail on you also you can store everything on your computer and then transfer to dvd.
Let me know if this answered you question or if you need further assistance ok

Older TV works great alone including sound. Cable TV but no box. VCR connected with cables (red,white and yellow)to TV and has worked fine. Playing home recorded VCR tape picture OK but sound is low and...


Very likely the VCR audio head is dirty which will give you muffled or low sound on play. Remove the the top cover & using a piece of non-abrasive cleaning cloth & a head cleaning fluid gently rub the audio head to clean it. The audio stack sits to the right hand side of the deck, it is usually a siler block which will be placed in front of a black roller. The head is on the side of the stack facing toward you, give this area a wipe, try a fresh recording & then replay the new recording to see if the sound has improved.

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....


When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian
