Question about Toshiba W522 VHS VCR
Hello, I have a problem with this vrc making the picture roll all the time. It may or may not be a problem in recording, but it is absolutely a problem in play back. Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem? Thank you. Azor
First check vertical hold control on your Tv. If iot is ok - ie. the picture does not roll on your broadcast picture, then check the VCR. Are you playing old tapes? If they are old, or if your VCR is old, it is possible that your VCR is chewing the tape. Flip the tape cover flap of your cassette and see if the lower edge of your Tape is OK? If it is chewed up, then the Control pulse signal has been damaged. Cheweing of tapes happens when the Capstan pinch Roller is old. replace the Roller.

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.
