Yes or maybe, or just very dirty.. Get yourself a FABRIC cleaning tape & fluid & try a clean. If still no good.. time for a new one.. head replacement, is probably uneconomic.

We have a 27" MTS Stereo color TV. There are white horizontal lines at the top of the screen. We do have a DVR with Direct TV. How do we fix?


U can't.Only horizontal lines on the top parts of the tv screen or the lower parts of the picture screen.Or very light horizontal lines mix in with the tv screen pictures.The "CRT" the picture tube is slowly dying of old age.Quicker than they supose to.The late 90" these problems case show up alot more in standard tvs using CRT tube.Because the CRT and analog design about to be faze out of the market place.The glass molding and those radiation matrials,they used to make those "CRT" picture tube materials,not as good as before.

Sansui VCR model VC R254EIS refuses to track properly.


First off, if your heads were worn, they should affect the entire picture, so I think you can rule that out. The guideposts on either side of the head control the location that the tape tracks across the head. If one of them is out of adjustment, it will cause tracking problems. Seeing as you say the lines are on the left, I would start with the left guidepost and adjust it very slowly, if the tracking gets worse, then reset it to the best picture possible and try the same thing on the other side. If this does not work and you have cleaned it thoroughly, then there are only two possible solutions left. One is, of course, to replace the entire unit. The other one is something that you truthfully should never do, but it is a trick I learned in a TV repair shop I worked in for a while. I don't want to post it on here, because it is possible do more damage than good if done wrong so if adjusting the guideposts doesnt work, leave me your email, and I will email you the other option.

Horizontal 'pinstripe' lines on all channels


sound like the screen control on the flyback is set just a little too high. the flyback has the red wire attached to the tube. the flyback has 2 small adjustable controls. if you look close enough 1 is marked focus & on is screen. turn the screen slightly to the left & look at your picture. the screen is like a master brightness & if it's up too high you will see what is called retrace lines. good luck.

Jumping screen on sylvania 6240ve


Press the Channel up & down buttons at the same time and on most VCRs this deactivates auto tracking option. then press the up or down channel button to adjust tracking.You might try this first. pressing them both at same time reactvates auto tracking. This might not solve the problem but at least you eliminated one possibility.
