Question about Sony KDF-42WE655 Television

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.

VHS Video Tape - Picture Roll.


Picture roll is caused by the frame rate being out of sync with the play back device. If the tape was recorded at say 25 f/m and is being played back at 26f/m. If you can, adjust the frame rate until the picture stands still.

Try cleaning the heads, but it seems like the heads may be faulty, you might need to replace the vcr, they don't cost much these days, the repair might cost more than a new vcr these days.

heres a cheap headcleaner, look for one at local shops, wallmart bestbuy and so on

the video and control heads are probably dirty. a video cleaning tape might work, otherwise you will need to get a proffessional to clean if for you.

I suggest you get the Tape path cleaned up. Could be dirty video heads or a dirty Control Head. Use a good 'wet' type cleaning cassette.

This model is the W528 VCR, but my manual includes both models


Does it do this with other television sets? If so, then it indicates the problem resides in the VCR. Rolling as you describe suggests either the VCR isn't producing a clean enough vertical sync pulse in the video signal, or the TV circuitry isn't processing the pulse properly. First, try cleaning the heads (not just the video head, but also the audio/control head which is to the right of the rotating video head. If this doesn't fix the problem, an electronic problem is likely. Unless this is a high dollar unit, repair is not recommended, as VCRs of the last 10 years or so are essentially disposable. I've done some looking on the 'net regarding copy protection, and it doesn't look like this is an issue here.
