Question about Panasonic PV-8400 VHS VCR
Sound from the VCR is fine, the picture is clear, but it blinks on and off. Sometimes adjusting the tracking has some effect in keeping the picture on, but not always. Sometimes, if it runs for 10 to 15 minutes it, the blinking slows down and eventually stops, but not always. This happens with commercial pre-recorded tapes and with taped programs from the cable. All connections are proper according to instructions.
Is this just an incompatibility problem between old and new technologies?
MAYBE, and SOMETIMES -- blinking seems to depend with extreme sensitivity on the "Tracking" control on the VCR. We have found some tapes that can be brought into good synchronization - although there may still be some flicker in part of the screen. Other tapes, on the other hand, never did work anywhere in the range of the tracking control. Perhaps newer tapes behave better?
