    Cleaning VCR head does not resolve problem. The rolling effect starts even without any disk in the player.

  • serge_line Jan 23, 2009

    The problem seems to be like tracking on a VHS player.
    There is no tracking setting options on this unit.

  • serge_line Jan 23, 2009

    I also tried to change cables between DVD and TV without any success.

  • serge_line Jan 23, 2009

    Thank you Guru, I think you have the solution, but I would need instructions how to ckeck the color system for my dvd player.I can't find my owners manual.

  • serge_line Jan 23, 2009

    I realy think it's about colour settings like explained by Guru.

  • serge_line Jan 23, 2009

    Since my TV is hold and cannot change settings, I think I need to reset my DVD player and need instructions for that.

  • serge_line Jan 23, 2009

    Since display is rolling I cannot set up the color setting on DVD.

  • serge_line Jan 23, 2009

    Citizen Model # jdvd3820

  • serge_line Jan 23, 2009

    Thanks Guru, I will try on another TV and let you know later.

  • serge_line Jan 23, 2009

    Thanks Mr Mark.

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    As indicated before the model # is jdvd3820

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    tanks but I need to obtain owner's manual to obtain the procedure to restart the unit.

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    thanks

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    Thanks

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    Since screen doesn't stop rolling, I can't select any region. There must be a way to stop the screen in order to select a region.

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    Nothing happens with this procedure.

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    I'm using standard rca plugs cable, would s-video cable be more appropriate? I have always used rca cable before and never had problems untill today.

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    Thanks but my problem is more about settings on the unit

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    thanks cleaning was already done.

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    For Guru;
    I tried the unit on another TV set and the problem is the same

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    thanks for the info Mohamed,

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    I give up for tonight.

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    It seems that user manual for this product is not available.

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    Only DVD player has the prog/ component video out

  • serge_line Jan 24, 2009

    Thanks

  • serge_line Jan 25, 2009

    Thank you all for your suggestions.
    I will get it repaired by a technician from my resseller.
    It seems that he knows this type of DVD very well.

  • serge_line Jan 25, 2009

    Thank you all for your support,

    Test that the DVD is working by hooking it up on a different TV, if the DVD does not work on a different TV, no use in wasting time on this.In that case , just send it for repairs.

Try spraying the motor and the control with a switch cleaner. Make sure that the cleaner contains a lubricant as well. Also, check the gears on the motor. It is possible that the motor driver IC is starting to go and can not provide the power for consistant movement as well.

    lets try a complete reset. The owner's manual should have instructions
    on how to force a reset. If not, try unplugging the unit for a couple
    of hours. If the reset doesn't work, I'd start looking in the power
    supply area.

    video processing circuitry is faulty

    can diagnose this remotely, but when you change the mode, circuits are
    enabled that normally are not engaged. These circuits are digital
    processing circuits and may be effecting the data lines that control
    the entire set.

Sounds like you are using the S-video cable for the connection,If so, try and use a composite cable instead,(it's the yellow one with standard rca plugs)If that does it,you just need a new S-video cable.

    Here are a few options



    Option 1



    Your DVD Players can play PAL and NTSC and leaves the NTSC at the 30 f/s and just adjust the picture size to PAL, unfortunatly if you TV cant handle a 30 f/s ( 60 cycles/sec) then the result is the scrolling your seeing. Solution(change to the correct format)

    To do this,Open the tray
    Press "setup" button on the remote,a menu will appear
    Press the cursor button ">" on the remote to choose "Preference page"
    Press the numer keys "1 3 7 9" from the remote,
    The tv will then show the region code menu.
    Press the cursor button on the remote to choose your favorite.



    Option 2


    Your DVD player is a Progressive Scan capable DVD player. It is possible that your DVD player is sending its video in a progressive scan format and your TV may only be compatible with an interlaced format. When this happens you can see a rolling picture, a side by side picture and even no picture depending on the TV.

    If it is a progressive scan player, just make sure that the Progressive function is turned off.

    To do this,Open tray and press menu,setting,and turn off progressive scan.

    SORRY, THAT MANUAL IS FOR SOMETHING ELSE. COULD NOT FIND YOUR MANUAL JUST YET I WILL KEEP LOOKING. BUT HOWEVER, I DID FIND THE INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO RESET THE DVD PLAYER
    The solution is bizarre, but it's straight from the manual. Press the
    open/close button on the DVD player so that the disc tray comes out.
    Then, press the '0' button on the remote until the correct display
    comes up.



  • Nate Stansfield
    Nate Stansfield Jan 24, 2009

    If your dvd player is hooked up via RCA jacks, I would suggest try s-video cables. If this does not fix the problem, try swithching aspect ratio in dvd menu. If you have tried different display settings and your player still doesn't work, then the problem is due to the video output board on the player has to be fixed by an electronical repair shop.

Sounds like the update may have changed your video settings. Go to the settings tab and change your video settings to match your television, it will be 480p, 720p,1080i or 1080p I believe.

Hi,
This looks vertical deflection frequency difference like TV is set on NTSC (60Hz) and DVD Player is generating PAL (50Hz) video out signal.
Please check color system of both units (TV and Player) and should be set on either NTSC or PAL.

    OK, Tried player on another TV and problem is same.
    This shows that most probably video out buffer transistor in player is damaged / not giving proper composite video output signal 1V p-p

    Here you have another option, hook dvd player through Component Video Out (red-green-blue) if TV and dvd player has this connections facility.

Have you tried changing out the cables that you are using yet? It sounds like a problem with the video feed with the cable. The feed is just getting messed up on the way to the tv. I used to run into this problem all the time when I owned my home entertainment company. Cables just go bad sometimes. Let me know how that works for you.

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.

Barbara,From your description of multiple problems there is, more than likely, a circuitry problem that is causing the unit to shut down. Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix and will require a trip to the shop. Get an estimate before approving repair. In the new world of disposable electronics the cost of repair may exceed the value of the unit.
I just checked eBay and there is an identical model (Item number:300342819479) priced at a "Buy It Now" price of $44.00. So there is your answer. It would cost less to buy a replacement than to repair your unit. Like I said: "welcome to the world of disposable electronics"!!

After recording a program using the Toshiba W522, the picture rolls and jumps up and down, while in playback mode. I have no problem with recording, its just when its time to actually watch the program,...


If the tapes are old or cheap, they may simply be no good. However, I found that the automatic tracking is the best thing to ensure perfect quality picture and sound.

Toshiba M-782


If pictures are rolling during normal playback, just check one thing first. Open the Cassette flap and see the condition of the tape. Is it chewed and stretched at the bottom? If yes, the problem is a worn Capstan / Pinch roller in the VCR. It is cheweing up the lower edge of the tape, and therefore the VCR is not able to process the 'Control Track.
All you need to do is replace the Capstan / Pinch roller.It is a big (approximately 1 inch high by 1/2 inch wide Black Rubber roller inside the VCR. REPLACE. Problem will be solved.

This model is the W528 VCR, but my manual includes both models


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.
