Question about RCA CC617 VHS-C Analog Camcorder
When recording on my RCA 617 all seems to be working well, however, on play back the picture is not stable and it rolls constantly. Will cleaning the heads help this problem. I have tried different tapes and the rolling occurs on the camcorder and when played back on a tv. Thanks,
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.
