Panasonic AG-1970 video out problem

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.

Panasonic AG-DV1000 ejecting tapes

This unit just needs the standard belt job. The rubber parts probably got old sitting around in the back romm of the university.

Could do it yourself if you are the like to take things apart type. Otherwise, a repair shop can do it very affordably.

No video output

AG-DS555s are plagued by capacitor failure problems on all the video boards in the deck. Replacement of all surface mount electrolytic capacitors is the solution, but before you try that, give the heads a good cleaning. It's amazing what a miniscule amount of dirt on the heads will do.
