Question about Sony SLV-998HF VHS VCR
My Sony SLV-998HF has intermittent tuner operation that started happening out of nowhere. Sometimes the tuner works for a little while, then I start getting scratchy video and audio here and there, then goes out completely (blank screen). Stereo and SAP indicators will go out at same time as if signal feed was lost when in fact it has not been. Bad solder joint somewhere in or around tuner is the strong idea I'm getting, would just like more input from someone. I've heard bad solder joints are common with Sony. I've owned unit since new (1998).
Have you tried to move the switch to channel 4 on the back of the vcr ( you will have to watch the vcr on channel 4)
