Question about Sanyo VWM-900 VHS VCR
At first I thought it was the tape, but tried ti play a different tape with the same results.....
the picture seems to be ok but the audio is jerky and when you look at the picture, you can tell it is responding the same as the picture.
Your post/description indicates that possibly the brake mechanism of the supply reel is acting up. A typical VCR has 2 reels inside that spins the tape. The left side is the supply while the right is the take up. If the brake (on the left/supply) is engaged (even partially), then the entire mechanism would have a hard time pulling the tape around the video/audio head and would partially be stretching. This would represent itself as jerky audio/video in most instances. There would possible also be a low screeching sound coming from the machine/tape. An indicator would be stretched tape - there would be uneven edges of the tape.
Since this is an electro-mechanical problem, perhaps your best course of action is to seek the services of a qualified video machine technician.
Alternately, it may be possible to loosen things up by first fast forwarding the entire tape and thereafter rewinding fully before you play it.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
