Question about Televison & Video
The static you are seeing is the lack of capstan servo lock. Notice if you adjust the tracking the condition does not change. If it is an old mechanical switch VCR, it could be as simple as a dirty record/play switch. If it has belts replace the capstan belt. Other than that, you are looking at an open capacitor between the control head and the capstan motor servo. Much more difficult to troubleshoot without service information.
