If the cable box has audio and video outputs on it then use RCA type cables to connect the outputs of the cable box into the video and audio IN of the back of the VCR. Then select L1 on the VCR. If your TV has video and audio input connectors connect another set of cables form the VCR OUT to the IN puts of the TV, then select the AV inputs on the TV. If your TV doesn't have video and audio inputs, then use a coax cable from the RF/Antenna OUT of the VCR and connect it to the antenna jack on the TV. Now select 3or4 on the VCR to whatever works for your location and tune the TV to that same channel. That's it ...you now can watch and record the channel you're watching. You will have to have the VCR powered up all the time to watch TV
Bad recording VHS or old VHS tapes,will sometimes causes this problems,because of degrading magnatic tapes.Sorry this problems,u did the fixed adjusting manual tracking,that it not fixing the problems,sorry that all u will getting that kind of quality of picture.
If the vcr is running the tape, your video head is probably dirty, try using a cleaning tape if you have one. The second option is use a brand new blank tape T120 and set the the machine to sp speed (2hr running time) and let the tape run the full course. The third option is to remove the lid of the vcr and carefully clean the video head with a swab dipped in rubbing alcohol rotating the head by hand as you proceed allowing several minutes to dry before loading your tape.
Take the top off and spray the main head with Servisol Video 40. (image below) Also the tracking and audio heads.
Wait for it to dry before putting a tape in. In the future use only this it is much better and cheaper than cleaning tapes.
You can try cleaning the video tape heads. The vcr has 2 different heads. One for audio which is fixed and a drum head for video with 2 heads on it that rotate. The best way to clean them is to take a lint free cloth ad wrap it tightly around your finger. Put some alcohol on the cloth and place it on the drum. Then rotate the drum as you hold your finger against the drum. DO NOT move your finger up and down as you can brake the head off. The other option is to go buy a head cleaning stick. It's a piece of chamie on a plastic tongue depressor. I've cleaned hundreds of them with my finger though. You can clean the whole tape path with the rag. Good Luck.
TRY PUTTING A SET OF PHONO CABLES INTO THE VCR INPUT THEN TO THE ANALOG OUT PUTS ON TOUR DVD/VCR SWITCH AMP TO VCR PRESS DIGITAL INPUT BUTTON ON FRONT OF AMP UNTILL YOU GET _ _ _ SET SOUND TO PROLOGIC 2.THIS SHOULD WORK.
Get all the belts changed in it and the pinch roller replaced. All of those decks had real rubber belts plus the lubricants where made from animal fat. It's a wonder it does anything at all but beta is great its the foundation of HDcam and the SR series today and what a beautiful picture.
