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.

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.

Fuzzy VCR Image and Recording


Most of the time, the VCR cleaning tapes are not very good.

Take the VCR to the local TV service shop in your area, and pay them the few dollars for a proper manual cleaning.

After a few years of use, the transport may need a new pinch roller, belts, idler wheel, head cleaner sponge, and some other pieces. Most of the manufactures are no longer supplying replacement parts for VCR servicing, but the manufactures used to sell a maintenance kit for their models. This kit used to cost about $15 to $40 depending on the model of the VCR.

You can research how to do the manual cleaning yourself, but if you are not experienced you take the chance to damage your VCR. The heads, and the guide alignments are very critical. You may also need to change some parts.

If the VCR still does not perform after the cleaning, then there are fault conditions. The machine will then need proper service.

Bad sound on vcr tape


You have a dirt video head and may also have to check the alignment. Run a wet cleaning tape through the machine repeatedly until the screen hiss the shows when the cleaning tape is in almost disappears. It is VERY important to let the head dry completely before putting a tape in. Let it dry overnight. If this only happens with one particular tape then the tape is bad.
