An "F" connector may be loose. Solutions: Check and hand tighten the cable fittings to the converter, TV set, and VCR. also: Adjust the fine-tuning on the TV set, VCR, or converter box. Good luck

I have a Yashica,Samurai Video 8 KX-77 Video Camera Recorder when I playback the picture rolls what can I do ?

If you are experiencing issues with the playback on your Yashica Samurai Video 8 KX-77 Video Camera Recorder, here are a few troubleshooting steps you can try:
  1. Clean the playback heads: Use a head-cleaning cassette or a cotton swab moistened with isopropyl alcohol to gently clean the playback heads. Dirty heads can cause playback issues and poor picture quality.
  2. Check the tapes: Ensure that the video tapes you are trying to play are in good condition and not damaged. Inspect the tape for any signs of damage or deformation that could affect playback. If the tapes are damaged, you may need to try a different tape or have the damaged tapes repaired.
  3. Adjust the tracking: Use the tracking control on the camera recorder to adjust the playback tracking. The tracking control helps align the playback heads with the tape tracks for optimal playback quality. Experiment with adjusting the tracking to see if it improves the picture quality.
  4. Test with different tapes: If possible, try playing different video tapes to see if the issue persists. This will help determine if the problem is specific to certain tapes or if it is a broader issue with the camera recorder itself.
  5. Seek professional service: If the above steps do not resolve the issue, it may be necessary to seek professional repair or servicing for the camera recorder. Contact a reputable camera repair shop or the manufacturer's customer support for assistance.

Picture rolls on playback

Try cleaning the heads, but it seems like the heads may be faulty, you might need to replace the vcr, they don't cost much these days, the repair might cost more than a new vcr these days.

heres a cheap headcleaner, look for one at local shops, wallmart bestbuy and so on

The horizontal hold

If model number correct (the one posted here) set does not have a horizontal (rolls left to right) or a vertical (rolls top to bottom) control.

Verify model and brand so I may offer some suggestions

After recording a program using the Toshiba W522, the picture rolls and jumps up and down, while in playback mode. I have no problem with recording, its just when its time to actually watch the program,...

If the tapes are old or cheap, they may simply be no good. However, I found that the automatic tracking is the best thing to ensure perfect quality picture and sound.

Video tapes played through VCR experience vertical 'rolling'

unfortunatly no. the vert hold is set by black bars at the top/bottom of the video signal (outside of the viewable area). it sounds like your VCR or tape is damaged.

Toshiba M-782

If pictures are rolling during normal playback, just check one thing first. Open the Cassette flap and see the condition of the tape. Is it chewed and stretched at the bottom? If yes, the problem is a worn Capstan / Pinch roller in the VCR. It is cheweing up the lower edge of the tape, and therefore the VCR is not able to process the 'Control Track.
All you need to do is replace the Capstan / Pinch roller.It is a big (approximately 1 inch high by 1/2 inch wide Black Rubber roller inside the VCR. REPLACE. Problem will be solved.

Tracking

Hi,

3 possible reasons:
1. Your video head needs cleaning;
2. The pinch roller is no longer making full contact with the entire tape width; or
3. Your capstan motor is running out of standard speed.

Corrective procedures would call for:
A. Clean the video head with a tape head cleaner;
B. Clean, re-align or replace the pinch roller; or
C. Re-calibrate the capstan speed. In some models, there are 2 adjusting trimpots for SP, LP and SLP speeds. This procedure would call for a special tachometer and/or an alignment tape. In the absence, you perhaps can try winging it (adjust till you are satisfied and no picture roll). To determine which are the trimpots, you need a service manual or at least a schematic/parts placement diagram. Further you need to be familiar with electronic components and circuitry as well as use of a DVM. of course this would involve running/diagnosing/adjusting with the case/cover open and the unit plug in to the mains and running. This would also call for extreme care working with live units.

Should you not be comfortable doing a DIY, perhaps your best option would be to seek the services of a qualified VCR technician.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Picture rolls on playback

Possible causes: the sync signal head is not recording, there is a mismatch between the capstan motor speed and the video head speed, or one of the sync circuits has a fault. Typically, if the picture rolls up or down, it's a vertical sync problem. A horizontal sync fault or tracking mismatch will cause the picture to tear sideways.

Try cleaning the sync head (one of two heads separate from the video head drum; the other is the audio track head), but don't be surprised if doesn't solve the problem.
