Question about RCA VR546 S-VHS VCR

1 Answer

Diagonal lines When I play a tape, shaky diagonal lines appear on the screen moving upward. As the tape plays on the diagonal lines change from making the screen completely shaky to going away. The basic form of cleaning the head hasn't helped nor has playing with the tracking. The sound doesn't seem to be affected by this problem.

Hi It's difficult to be sure without being able to see the lines myself, but what it sounds like is some stray RF is getting into your video signal. Although your cables are supposed to be shielded, this is a common problem. The first thing I would do is move the cables or cable you are using, in relation to any power cords hanging down behind your equipment while someone watches for the lines to change or dissapear, and is that has no effect, then if possible change the position of the VCR in relation to the tv, so that if for example it is under the tv, move it to the side, or farther away, and the lines may very well dissapear. That problem is due to a common interaction between the tv and vcr where there is not enough shielding, usually inside the bottom of the tv set. Hope this helps, good luck!

Z Button (hold) + C Stick Left/Right = View pitch history, to toggle at bats. Z Button + Control Pad Up/Down = View Bullpen/Dugout menu (Left/Right to toggle between bullpens and dugouts).

X Button Throw to 1st (press and hold to power up, release to throw)
B Button Throw to 3rd (press and hold to power up, release to throw)

R Button Throw to the cut-off man


GamePlay:

EA SPORTS PURE SWING SYSTEM:

The Strike zone is divided into nine colored squares. Red squares mark the batter's hot zones. Blue squares are the batter's cold zones. Clear squares are neutral for the batter.

Take unprecedented control at the plate by moving the Control Stick during your swing.

-The results of your swing depend on your timing, the location of the pitch, and the direction you move the Control Stick.
-For the best results, move the Control Stick towards the location of the pitch.
-To hit the ball in the air, move the Control Stick Diagonal Up-Left / Up / Diagonal Up-Right while swinging. This increases the chances of hitting a fly ball, but also increases your chances of missing the ball if the pitch isn't up in the zone.
-To hit the ball on the ground, move the Control Stick Diagonal Left-Down / Down / Diagonal Right-Down while swinging. Keep in mind that high pitches are very difficult to hit on the ground.
-To hit the ball to the left, move the Control Stick Diagonal Left- Down / Left / Diagonal Up-Left while swinging. For the best results, use this when the pitch is coming in on the left side of the plate.
-To hit the ball to the right, move the Control Stick Diagonal Right-Down / Right / Diagonal Up-Right while swinging. For the best results, use this when the pitch is coming in on the right side of the plate.

TO THROW A PITCH:

1. Press and hold the button that corresponds to the pitch you want to throw. The bar inside the pitch meter begins moving.
2. Release the pitch button when the bar reaches the end of the pitch meter. The closer your release point is to the end of the meter, the more effective the pitch is.
3. Press the pitch button again when the bar is within the green accuracy zone near the beginning of the pitch cycle to determine the pitch's accuracy.
-The effect of a bad pitch depends on the type of pitch. For example, ineffective fastballs are slower than normal, and less effective breaking pitches are flatter.
-If a pitcher misses the green accuracy zone by a considerable amount, an indicator (red for hot zone, blue for cold zone, yellow for ball, white for neutral) appears to tip off the batter to the location of the pitch.


PITCH SELECTION

Your pitcher's pitch selection appears on-screen. Not all pitchers have the same arsenal of pitches. A pitcher's four-seam fastball is always assigned to A Button. The remaining pitches are assigned to X, B, Y and R Button (though not all pitchers have five pitches).

FIELDING

-If you power up the throw into the red zone, you throw harder, but less accurately, which could result in an error.
-If you select to throw to either a base or the cut-off man before the ball arrives, the fielder begins his throw immediately upon receiving the ball.

NOTE: The CPU automatically adjusts your defensive alignment based on the situation. However, you can override this by choosing the infield and outfield alignments yourself.


EA SPORTS BIG PLAY CONTROL:

Using the all-new EA SPORTS Big Play Control, you can climb the fence to rob home runs, make spectacular diving catches, slide around tags, and more.

FIELDING:

- To dive or stretch for a ball just out of your reach, move the C Stick Left/Right toward the ball.
-To climb the wall to snag a would-be home run or jump for a ball over your head, move the C Stick Up.
-To make a sliding catch, move the C Stick Down as the ball approaches.

BASERUNNING
Timing is the key to a perfect slide. Use EA SPORTS Big Play Control to create havoc on the base paths.

C Stick:
Up = Head-first slide
Diagonal Up-Left/Up-Right = Head-first slide to the left/right side of the bag
Down = Pop-up slide
Diagonal Down-Right/Down-Left = Hook slide to the right/left side of the bag
Up = Dislodge ball from catcher.

Diagonal lines on my screen(samsung 55" projection HDTV hcn553w)


Here's the link to the user manual; http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=us&CttFileID=32370&CDCttType=UM&ModelType=C&ModelName=HCN553W&VPath=UM/200310/20031002105141187_P55A_00054A_0410.pdf Check page 28 and 29 for convergence instructions. Give it a try to see if it makes any difference. Check page 27 for the "perfect focus" feature and see if that helps. Could you take a photo of the "diagonal lines" on the set and post it - might help? If you open a menu on the screen, does it also have the lines across, or is it clear as normal. Check page 64 for how to run the demo, and try that. Have you recently unplugged the set from the mains power supply, left it for at least 15 minutes (preferably two hours) then turned it back on? if not, try it and see if you get any change. Check page 38 for the usual video settings - play around with them and see if any significant change? Check page 39 and set the "automatic picture setting" to standard, if it isn't already, and something else if it is - see if you get a change. Check page 40 for the colour tone adjustment - probably won't change anything, but worth a play in case. Check the bottom of page 46 about channel fine tuning - reset at least a couple of channels to 00, see if that makes a difference (long shot). Does the screen itself need cleaning? recommended is just a clean dry cloth - basically have a good close look at the screen when it is both on and off, to see if there are any marks that might be causing the problem - in particular has it possibly been cleaned with a solvent or too aggressively cleaned in a diagonal direction? shine a light on it at a few angles to check, and look from a few different angles too. Check by moving or turning them on and off if any other electric or electronic items near your tv may be causing the effect - speakers perhaps. Move speakers to check. A way to check other items is to totally cut off the electric supply to the whole house for a couple of minutes, except one circuit into which you can plug the TV and a picture source. See if you get a perfect picture - if so, start switching circuits back on 1 by one until it changes. Hope this helps - I think a photo would help a lot :)
