Question about RCA VR546 S-VHS VCR

1 Answer

Diagonal lines When I play a tape, shaky diagonal lines appear on the screen moving upward. As the tape plays on the diagonal lines change from making the screen completely shaky to going away. The basic form of cleaning the head hasn't helped nor has playing with the tracking. The sound doesn't seem to be affected by this problem.

Hi It's difficult to be sure without being able to see the lines myself, but what it sounds like is some stray RF is getting into your video signal. Although your cables are supposed to be shielded, this is a common problem. The first thing I would do is move the cables or cable you are using, in relation to any power cords hanging down behind your equipment while someone watches for the lines to change or dissapear, and is that has no effect, then if possible change the position of the VCR in relation to the tv, so that if for example it is under the tv, move it to the side, or farther away, and the lines may very well dissapear. That problem is due to a common interaction between the tv and vcr where there is not enough shielding, usually inside the bottom of the tv set. Hope this helps, good luck!

Video channel has diagonal lines

check the connections from your video to your tv, sounds like you have a loose wire,

If not re-tune your tv , it might have lost the tuning a bit , but its probably a loose connection

Diagonal lines on my screen(samsung 55" projection HDTV hcn553w)

Here's the link to the user manual; http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=us&CttFileID=32370&CDCttType=UM&ModelType=C&ModelName=HCN553W&VPath=UM/200310/20031002105141187_P55A_00054A_0410.pdf Check page 28 and 29 for convergence instructions. Give it a try to see if it makes any difference. Check page 27 for the "perfect focus" feature and see if that helps. Could you take a photo of the "diagonal lines" on the set and post it - might help? If you open a menu on the screen, does it also have the lines across, or is it clear as normal. Check page 64 for how to run the demo, and try that. Have you recently unplugged the set from the mains power supply, left it for at least 15 minutes (preferably two hours) then turned it back on? if not, try it and see if you get any change. Check page 38 for the usual video settings - play around with them and see if any significant change? Check page 39 and set the "automatic picture setting" to standard, if it isn't already, and something else if it is - see if you get a change. Check page 40 for the colour tone adjustment - probably won't change anything, but worth a play in case. Check the bottom of page 46 about channel fine tuning - reset at least a couple of channels to 00, see if that makes a difference (long shot). Does the screen itself need cleaning? recommended is just a clean dry cloth - basically have a good close look at the screen when it is both on and off, to see if there are any marks that might be causing the problem - in particular has it possibly been cleaned with a solvent or too aggressively cleaned in a diagonal direction? shine a light on it at a few angles to check, and look from a few different angles too. Check by moving or turning them on and off if any other electric or electronic items near your tv may be causing the effect - speakers perhaps. Move speakers to check. A way to check other items is to totally cut off the electric supply to the whole house for a couple of minutes, except one circuit into which you can plug the TV and a picture source. See if you get a perfect picture - if so, start switching circuits back on 1 by one until it changes. Hope this helps - I think a photo would help a lot :)
