Video tapes played through VCR experience vertical 'rolling'

Old tvs had a button to control vertical hold, when the picture appeared to be 'rolling' vertically. When Video tapes are played on my Sony kdf42 we 655 TV, this vertical rolling begins. the VCR has no way to control this, nor do the 'tracking' control buttons work. Is there a way to adjust the TV for this vertical rolling?

Unfortunatly no. the vert hold is set by black bars at the top/bottom of the video signal (outside of the viewable area). it sounds like your VCR or tape is damaged.

Vertical white lines appear on the screen. Samsung provides the following information but doesn't say what circuitry they are referring to. Samsung says: DLP TV: I Have Vertical White Lines...


That answer I agree makes no sense.

Most of these sets have NO vertical hold and if did it will not cause the lines.

A brief educated guess:

Set has a main board that communicates and controls the screen--tests for that are not simple (checking waveforms with a scope and signal generator).

The model indicated here is a DLP that uses a lamp (let me know if model listed is not the one you have).

In DLP sets aside from main/digital board you also have a optical light engine---it processes all signal in and out to the screen.

Optical engines do fail and cause some simple and some complicated picture issues.

Some will even cause the set to "lock up" with a picture or strange looking screen---clue to this is you have to shut the set off by pulling the power cord.

The set may be old enough they do not really want to help you or even talk about it.

Philips tv set 29PT6231/79R. Good picture and sound feeding through VCR machine. How do I get it to play video tapes? My previous tv played through channel 7.


I'd suggest connecting the VCR to one of the composite inputs on the set (Yellow, Red and White cable). Select that composite input, then tell the VCR to play. This will you give a slightly better quality picture than going through the tuner as you did on your old TV set.

Can't hook vcr to tv


on the back of your VCR there will be a yellow colored port - most likely labeled "OUT" as well as possibly a white/red pair of ports.
The yellow is for a VIDEO hookup, the white and red are for AUDIO hookups.
These ports use what is called an RCA type connection.
Radio Shack, or just about any department store should be able to sell you an inexpensive set of RCA cables.

now on the back of the TV (possibly on the side) you will also have the yellow, white and red ports.

Hook one end of the RCA cable to the colored ports on the VCR, the other end of the cable to the colored ports on the TV.

last thing - the TV most likely has multiple inputs. there is probably a input button on the TVs remote, you need to press that button to cycle through the inputs until you get to the one the VCR is hooked up to.
its easiest to put a tape in the VCR and press play - when you get to the right input, you will see your tape...

good luck

VCR problems on my new Hannspree HDTV


It is unlikely that you will be able to solve this issue. This is due to the way a digital TV works.

The output from your VCR is an analogue signal - a constantly varying electrical signal carrying information about the picture. This is interspersed with a synchronisation signal that tells the TV where the start of each frame begins within the stream. With me so far?

When you fast-forward a tape, two things happen: the sync signals appear faster than expected and bars of static noise appear across the picture (I won't go into the technical details as to why!)

On an old analogue TV this isn't an issue - The way they work means that they will display some sort of picture. In other words, whatever signal is coming in (no matter how corrupted) it will show it on the screen.

Digital TVs are different. They have to read all the information for each frame and process it before it is displayed. When you fast-forward the tape (and the sync signals are at the wrong speed and interspersed with noise) a digital TV gets 'confused' - It cannot make sense of the signal, so ignores it, acting as if there is no signal at all (hence the blue screen).

Most VCRs are designed to retain enough of the signal that some sort of picture can be displayed while fast-forwarding. However, because you are recording in LP mode (which effectively halves the normal speed of the tape and also reduces the quality of the recording) there just isn't enough information in what is left for a digital TV to recognise as a 'proper' signal.

Your only option is to revert back to SP mode, or treat yourself to a new digital recorder :-)

Hope this helps,

Matt.
