If you are trying to make a copy of a commercially produced DVD movie, give up. They are copy protected and the equipment sold to record and play DVDs will not allow you to make copies of these movies. Even if it would copy, there would be image distortion and possible sound distortion that would render the movie unwatchable. There are other ways to do it that involve computers and special software, but they are not legal in most jurisdictions so I will not venture into those areas.
The tracking needs to be adjusted. Sometimes it's a knob on the VCR, and sometimes it's a control on the remote. Adjust it for the best picture, and the sound shoud be restored.
Good luck, and hope this helps..
My first thought would be the rubber drive belt, as it gets hotter it might get a little bit stretchy and then when you give it a break it gets less stretchy [make sense ] but thats only my guess as i,ve had turntables for over 25 yrs , but then that wouldnt account for the mettalic sound, that would only be if the platter was slightly warped and hitting the chassis [the main unit ]
What's happening is that the tape in the cassette is being chewed on one side by the camera's tape transporting mechanism during playback, hence the distorted image and sound. The mechanism might be damaged (misalignment) or just dirty. Try not to play other tapes on this unit because they will become permanently damaged. The best way is to find another camcorder (if cleaning does not help). Note that some old cassettes of long recording time will exhibit this behavior more often because of thinner tape used.
