    Thank you very much Pravin. Have given the info to hubby who will check out what you have said. Like you said it is a 20 year old machine but it had little use. We have about 4 other machines, JVC, Sony which really have not had much use but all have one problem or another. The sad thing is that they prob can all be fixed but it is a case of economics these days isnt't it, lol. Cheaper to buy than to repair.

    Thank you again

Yes, the NV 370 was among the most produced and popular VCR machines by Panasonic. Ifthere is no color, only 2 reasons i can think of - 1. Check the Colour / B&W switch at t5he rear of the machine.It might accidently be on 'B&W' mode. 2. Clean the video Heads. Dirty Heads also show as B&W picture on this machine. 3. There is a internal circuitry fault (tho' very rare in this machine. If it is a circuit fault, then there is nothing you can do, unless you know Solid state Electronics servicing. And even after that, it may become difficult to service, as spares may not be available. Machine is a 20 year old model.

Why does my KD-32FS170 32" Sony Trinitron screen have blue hues


If you turn all of the color out of the TV, the picture should be black and white. If that picture is not a true black and white picture, the TV will produce a color picture that has that behind it. It takes the proper mixture of red, green and blue light to produce white. This is something that is done inside the glass picture tube.
In your case, one color (blue is stronger) and the others are weaker.
It probably had not been used for a while. SOMETIMES, the weaker colors will get stronger with use. Adjust the brightness and picture controls to get the closest you can to a black and white picture, and then add the amount of color that seems right to you. Use the TV and hope for the best. It will improve, but 2%, 10%, or 50%; I do not know. The proper repair is to replace the glass picture tube, which is not an option at this time. So, turn it on, play games, and HOPE for the best.

Programing for best cup


when feeling upper crusty, I like the pre-soak method, using my good old bunn machine a small blast of 195 degree water to steep for 45 seconds to a minute, followed by the remaining 195 degree water to brew my desired quantity. but I seldom wish to muck about when I want some coffee, so use my good old bunn old school brewer the way it was originally designed,... add grounds, pour water, enjoy coffee!

Hello seano68
Check again your connections .

HOW CAN I GET A BETTER ,SHAPER PICTUER NO MY TV


The sharpness of your picture is dependent on the resolution your TV and device(s) are capable of producing. This TV is capable of showing video in resolutions up to 1080i. 1080i is a good quality of video, so the lack of clarity in your picture is likely being caused by your video source. Basically, the principal of Garbage In, Garbage Out applies here. If your video source is low resolution, even the best TV won't be able to produce a clear picture from it. If you're using VHS and standard definition cable, switch to Blu-Ray and ask your cable provider about high definition tv. Make sure you're using the proper cables (ie., HDMI) as older types such as composite can't support high definition video. Once again, your TV wont polish any poop for you, but play some decent quality video through it and you should notice a world of difference.

Panasonic VHS VCR Playback mode Tape Stuttering between LP and SP


This is most because the control head may be dirty, this haed picks up the pulses from the tape to regulate the speed & tracking if this is off it can produce both the faults you describe. Also it is possible the pinch roller (black roller on the right hand side of the deck mechanism, sits just in front of the control head), this may be worn especially as the machine is five years old, this will cause the tape to guided off alignment.

PANASONIC TV, TH-42PX60


If it's just one video plug, then perhaps you have to set av5 as being in colour somwhere in the menus.  If you require three wires for the pictures, as blue, green, and red, then make sure they aren't in the wrong ports.
Good luck.

Black bars in the picture


For Models: CC4352, CC4362, CC4393. Your camcorder has a wide format recording mode that lets you make recordings compatible with the 16x9 format. When 16x9 is activated, the camcorder records black bars at the top and bottom of the picture to produce the wide-screen (movie) effect. This is also known as "letterbox" recording. Do not use this mode unless you have a compatible 16x9 TV. When played on a regular TV, black bars appear on the screen. If the 16x9 feature is activated on your camcorder and you want to turn it off, press REC/PAUSE to pause recording, and repeatedly press DIGITAL EFFECTS until no digital effects display appears.
