Question about Panasonic VCRs
I purchased an AG-1970 from ebay which works fine except for the video output from this unit is just garbage. It does not matter if it is s-video out or coax. Also does not matter if the input is from tape or tuner. The best description of the picture is a vcr that is set to ch3 and a tv tuned to ch4. I have checked for leaking caps in the power supply as well as all boards and found none. I have also felt for burning hot IC's or VR's that might be the problem and can't find any either. I have pulled boards to see any effect that may have and I have found one board that seems to control the video signal output but there is not much on in the way of circuits. So I guess my question is, is this a problem anyone has seen before with this unit or similar units and might have an idea where to start? I do not have fancy test equipment.
There is a y/c separator in the AG-1970 which fails and produces all sorts of strange video symptoms. unfortunately, they are no longer available from Panasonic.
