Question about Mitsubishi HS-U560 VHS VCR
I have a HS-U560 and the play is fine, however when i record the picture goes between bad and good. Do you thing the record head needs cleaning or is it a worse problem than that?
The fact that both inputs give you a bad recording indicates its something common to both inputs. First thing I would do is try cleaning the heads. It's the cheapest solution to try. There is also an erase head as well, but that is usually not part of the video head. The erase head erases the tape just prior to the record head recording the new material on the tape. Problems in the erase head will cause you to see both what you just recorded and what was previously on the tape. The picture will be distorted and shifting back and forth between the new program and the previous one.
