Question about Sylvania 6240VE VHS/S-VHS playback VCR
Sylvania 626OVE Model: I cleaned the internal parts manually and seemed to work ok. Then it started bouncing when a different taped program started. I was playing a copy of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre just fine, then when another copied movie came on, the picture started bouncing up and down.
What could be the problem + why don't the more current VHS player/recorders have the good old Tracking Control anymore? They used to work great on the older models.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
All new VCR's are auto tracking however, you should be able to manually track it using your remote, or there are a few reasons that the auto track can fail, the tape may have worn or ragged edges which means that the control head cannot get a clean reading, the control head may itself need cleaning or the tape path requires adjustments, adjusting the guides really needs to be done by a technician as a reference tape is used, or that the heads are low and a good video signal cannot be obtained to gain a reference point....Phil
