I have a Hitachi VT-FX665 VCR. It has a picture, but no color.


Could be caused by dirt on the video head, poor tracking, which can be adjusted, or a fault in the colour circuit.

Tape cleaner tape for the head. Press the tracking controls on the remote and you will need to see a repair man for the last one.

Do you have a tracking control on the
vcr if you do it should be centered during
record It can be adjusted during playback
to clear up the picture adjust it for the best
picture

If you dont have a tracking control on the
vcr then it may require a mechanical adjustment
of the backtension or guidepost which requires
special tools to perform

I have a Sylvania SRD3900 DVD Player / VCR Combo that I purchased about 6 years ago. The VCR part is causing problems. When I try to play movies the picture is distorted with no sound, but it plays back...


The tracking needs to be adjusted. Sometimes it's a knob on the VCR, and sometimes it's a control on the remote. Adjust it for the best picture, and the sound shoud be restored.
Good luck, and hope this helps..

Video noise at bottom of screen


Try adjusting the tracking on your VCR. This symptom would typically be caused by a slight tracking error in your VCR or video heads that need to be cleaned. Your Zenith TV may be a little more sensitive to video synchronization problems than your other TV is.

If VCR tracking adjustments have no effect on the symptom, then the problem could be in the TV, but I'll need more details to assist you with troubleshooting. For example, how do you connect the VCR to the TV?

Vcr record problems


It sounds like the back tension is off on the unit. the back tension is controled by a small band attached to a copper or metal strip and that ia wraped around the supply reel and is adjust by an arm that swings out and contacts the tape during record or playback and keeps a steady tension on the tape. If the back tension band breaks or wears out you will get a picture that looks like the tracking is off or bad or dirty video heads. Most likly you do not have a backtension gauge and it certainly would not be fesable for you to purchace one as a good one cost about 100 bucks or so. A repair shop may beable to adjust it for you, But even their fee may be cost prohibitive. Good Luck PS please do not forget to rate this.
