Question about Sony SLV-ED343 VHS VCR
Hi,I have 2 brand new ED343's and both have something wrong with them. The first one has very poor quality sound, the auto tracking doesnt seem to help this. Its bassey and soft. The second player gives a very garbles image until auto tracking is completed, but still, the image doesnt fully resolve... theres still broken sections across the picture as it plays back... help! (Is this a problematic or cheap & nasty unit?) Regards Dan
If these are indeed brand new, take them back for warranty exchange. Symptoms as you describe point to oxide deposits on the audio/control head (the poor audio), and on the video head unit (poor, garbled video). Or, a tape path alignment problem could cause such. Try cleaning the heads- I prefer using a lint free cloth moistened with something like Tun O Wash, or another Chemtronics cleaner. I've used rubbing alcohol also. As on other posts, VCRs of the last 10+ years are of the disposable variety, very different of the "built like a tank" rigs of the '80s & early '90s. Compare the pricing of units of then & now- You just can't buy the quality of those $400+ VCRs in a sub $100 unit of today.

Yes, you have a disc problem. Some PS1 games have audio MP3 , or WAV files on them, and poor reading sometimes will pick up the audio tracks and not the Game data. You could be having a Laser alignment issue, but if other PS1 games are working fine, you do not.
