Question about Sony SLV-D350P DVD Player/VCR
If I try to play SP tapes (both pre-recorded or recorded on this VCR), the top 1/3 of the screen shows black/white veritcal wavy lines of varying width. The rest of the screen has horizontal static marks.
The same tapes play fine on another VCR. The picture looks fine if the VCR is paused or fast forwarded. I have no problems with EP tapes.
There are guide posts that the tape goes around, they need to be adjusted if your good at that stuff take off cover and while playing tape be careful you could damage video head.with flat srew drive . adjust right post buy turning clockwise or counter clockwise. this could be hard i hope i helped , When i first started ny video shop 1987 we started doing only vcrs.
The video head also could be bad. thanks doctor video

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?
Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.
Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played
