Question about Panasonic AG-DS555 S-VHS VCR
I have a video to DVD transfer business. Just bought a used ag-ds555 for a great price. Unit powers up and is very clean. All buttons work properly. Pop a tape in, connect to a monitor and receive audio but no video. Before I purchased the unit, I was informed of this problem. I'm open to ideas on a possible diagnosis? Thanks, Gregg Primus
Can anyone suggest a tech that can replace the capacitors on the boards
for a reasonable price. I have 3, AG-DS555s and 1, DS545 that all
have the same problem with capacitors on the YC and IO boards.
BH Photo has these machines listed from 2000 to 4000 dollars.
I would even be willing to trade one of the machines to repair the others.

Surface mount electrolytic capacitors. These are located on the video boards inside the unit. An engineer or technician will know how to replace them. Hope this helps.

I replaced all the capacitors on the video boards as recommended by one solution and the problem no longer exist. This may help you. Thanks!

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.
