Question about Goldstar GVR-DD1 VHS VCR
I recently acquired a Goldstar GVR-DD1 and during playback on the 8mm side there is some snow on the video....Ive used a good 8mm cleaning tape (Sony V8-25CLD) a few times with no luck. Ive also adjusted the tracking with no improvemnt. The VCR side plays flawlessly. Any ideas? I have moderate experiance with fixing electrical components so I would be willing to fix this on my own with advice from here if able...thanks again!

Even the service manuals are pretty bad at helping with mech problems
like this. You just have to be very mechanically inclined to
figure it out. A lot of VCR mechs are very similar however so
this is where experience helps. You do need to get the circuit
board off however. Usually a few screws up from the bottom.
Pretty smart huh! - put the least reliable parts (the belts) in the
hardest place to get to. Look carefully for little broken plastic
pieces. gear teeth etc. Since the motors work some of the
time, they are not the problem. Could be the mode switches are
out of time. They are a set of switch contacts buried in the mech
which tell the brain what position the mech is in. Move the load
motor by hand (I use a 5V power supply with a fwd/rev switch so I can
run it back and forth and watch the action.
Goldstars are good mechs. They make a ton of them and pretty well get the design bugs out, but of course those little plastic parts break easily.
Hope Ya Fix It.
