Question about Sony SLV-R1000 S-VHS VCR
The VCR can not record properly on a blank tape. It does record something that looks like zambled up vertical lines and you an hera a muffled audio. The lines are not color but black and white.
If an old tape is inserted ( that was previously recorded on this VCR or some other VCR ) THEN , IT DOES RECORD SOMETHING that is still black and white and is visible faintly with muffled audio in the top 3/4 portion of the display. You can see 1/4 of the previous recording on the bottom portion of the TV display. So looks like it did not erase the tape completely while recording.
However , It plays prerecorded tapes properly .
I have played with the Tracking and Auto tracking but to no avail.
Any Advise ?.
Great Suggestion.. Thanks to all of you who took time to help.

The deck needs a good cleaning. Try using a brand new tape and run it on playback for 20 min or so. You could try using a cleaning tape, but many of them are abrasive. If this doesn't work, you need a deck re-alignment which will cost more than your set is worth.
