Question about Sanyo VWM-950 VHS VCR

1 Answer

VWM-950 My VCR will tape, but when I play the tape back, the picture flips up (like rolling) really fast. (On a TV, you would play with the vertical button to set it correctly.) If I press the fast forward, the picture is clear. The sound is okay; just can't see the picture. When I play the tape on another VCR, I can see the picture, but the sound has a "grinding" type noise. Help, please! I need my VCR. Thank you!

    Haven't had a chance to go in town and get a cleaning tape yet. But I do really appreciate your help and your prompt response. I'll be going to town today and tomorrow and will pick one up and give it a try. Thank you!

I suggest you get the Tape path cleaned up. Could be dirty video heads or a dirty Control Head. Use a good 'wet' type cleaning cassette.

Picture Rolls Vertically during VHS playback on EWC19T3?


Hello
If the fault is only with tape play, and not with on air programmes, it is surely either with the tape or with the mechanism. Look at the tape filim for any curl at its bottom edge. If there is curling, rolling will occur becuse, contol signals are recorded at the botton edge of the tape. If top edge hage curling, sound will be effected. If there is no such mistake with tape, the pintch rollar of the VCR mechanism has worn out, and should be replaced. OK.

Picture rolls on playback


Try cleaning the heads, but it seems like the heads may be faulty, you might need to replace the vcr, they don't cost much these days, the repair might cost more than a new vcr these days.

heres a cheap headcleaner, look for one at local shops, wallmart bestbuy and so on

VHS Video Tape - Picture Roll.


Picture roll is caused by the frame rate being out of sync with the play back device. If the tape was recorded at say 25 f/m and is being played back at 26f/m. If you can, adjust the frame rate until the picture stands still.

The picture on my TS-4573 rear projection tv has started to roll vertically at a fast rate. How can I make this stop. On old tv's there was a vertical hold adjustment on the back that you could play with...


this fault is caused by defective electrolytic capacitors in the vertical deflection circuits, they need to be changed out, do this before it causes more problems, there are no adjustments for this anymore.

Video tapes played through VCR experience vertical 'rolling'


unfortunatly no. the vert hold is set by black bars at the top/bottom of the video signal (outside of the viewable area). it sounds like your VCR or tape is damaged.

Not likely. They probably just need to be cleaned and re-alligned. Rates vary, but our shop charges $20 to do that.

My VCR is playing too fast


try recording on a blank tape and setting the tape speed to SP (standard play). you should also see options for (LP-long play) and SLP (super long play). I think your machine is stuck on SLP option. if no-go, look for a manual on the web.

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.

VCR plays for a few seconds and rewinds. Now, the VCR plays tape in fast forward mode


Most everyone I know had problems with the tv/vcr combo including myself. I'll never buy one again. I'm sorry you are having the same problem.
