    change quality of recording mode from SP (standard play) to SLP (super long play) or EP (extended play)....depending on what RCA named these 3 modes...look at all menu options to find the modes.

If it is really old there might be a switch on the front under the little door to switch record speeds.

I have an RCA VCR model VR651HF that still works great. I can record shows without a problem as long as I'm not trying to watch a dvd. I recently bought a Sony dvd player model DVP SR200. I have my cable...


The sequence should go from the wall to the VCR then the VCR to the RF modulator then from the RF modulator to the TV and this should allow you to record a TV program and watch a DVD at the same time.

Recording


I'm going to venture a guess that what might have happened is you changed the mode of recording. VCRs record in either short play, or long play, or even super long play. As the length of playtime goes up, the quality goes down, because for short play, a 6 hr tape will record only two, whereas a 12 hour tape will record four hours. More information is stored on the tape, so the quality of picture and sound increase, but a longer movie could be cut off. You can adjust the play-length with the sp/slp buttons on your remote control.

My RCA vcr makes noise when I fastforward or rewind


ADCON4035::
Whenever I had the problem with the "noisy spindles", I just find an old movie, damaged tape,etc but with a good [chassie] body. sometimes the spindles have too much leayway and flip-flop around.It may take more then one 'body' change, but it stops the noise when you find the right size.

JVC HR-DVS3 Mini DV/S-VHS VCR time code problem


time code problems may be the result of tape path alignment, but since you have the same problem with five decks, don't overlook the possibility that the tapes themselves may have defective or non-existent time code. check to make sure the device that recorded the time code isn't malfunctioning.

Older VHS tapes play 'sped up' on S-VHS


A couple of possibilities: 1. One of the machines had a audio & tracking head alignment problem. If memory serves, tracking pulses are recorded on the bottom edge of the tape, and if one machine's head is slightly off, then these pulses aren't being picked up.

2. Do both machines have 3 play/record speeds? Many machines had SP, EP, & LP. Some didn't have EP, and if your older tapes were recorded in EP, perhaps this would cause your problem.

Both of these possibilities might be way out in left field.

Perhaps you could have a friend try your old tapes in their machine- in short, narrow down the defect. Is it the older VCR and it's recordings, or is it some goofy problem on the new one.

Lastly, you might check the audio/tracking head- see if it needs cleaning. This head is just to the right of the rotating video drum assembly.
