First off, if your heads were worn, they should affect the entire picture, so I think you can rule that out. The guideposts on either side of the head control the location that the tape tracks across the head. If one of them is out of adjustment, it will cause tracking problems. Seeing as you say the lines are on the left, I would start with the left guidepost and adjust it very slowly, if the tracking gets worse, then reset it to the best picture possible and try the same thing on the other side. If this does not work and you have cleaned it thoroughly, then there are only two possible solutions left. One is, of course, to replace the entire unit. The other one is something that you truthfully should never do, but it is a trick I learned in a TV repair shop I worked in for a while. I don't want to post it on here, because it is possible do more damage than good if done wrong so if adjusting the guideposts doesnt work, leave me your email, and I will email you the other option.
