Jumping screen on sylvania 6240ve

When I record a tv show and replay it, the image jumps like there is not a horizontal control. I use new tapes and clean the vcr heads regularly. There is no tracking knob. How do I get a non-jumping image.

Press the Channel up & down buttons at the same time and on most VCRs this deactivates auto tracking option. then press the up or down channel button to adjust tracking.You might try this first. pressing them both at same time reactvates auto tracking. This might not solve the problem but at least you eliminated one possibility.

Issue I believe with the Horizontal Synch

Hi this problem sounds like the tape was damaged somehow maybe faulty when you brought it because if you had no problems using a different tape then that rules out the head been damaged inside the video so i would say the tape was faulty.
Also you are right they dont make videos anymore and eventually wont be able to buy blank tapes the best format that you should invest in is a camcorder that takes memory cards these can hold alot more than the tapes can and the quality is 100 times better and less likely to fail on you also you can store everything on your computer and then transfer to dvd.
Let me know if this answered you question or if you need further assistance ok

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....

When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian

Picture bounces up and down

All new VCR's are auto tracking however, you should be able to manually track it using your remote, or there are a few reasons that the auto track can fail, the tape may have worn or ragged edges which means that the control head cannot get a clean reading, the control head may itself need cleaning or the tape path requires adjustments, adjusting the guides really needs to be done by a technician as a reference tape is used, or that the heads are low and a good video signal cannot be obtained to gain a reference point....Phil

Video Jumps on Screen

Sounds like the cleaning job wasn't good enough to get all the dirt. Try a Panasonic cleaning tape; if that doesn't work, find a local repair shop to do a good hand cleaning.

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV

Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
