Video Issue The video from DVD and VHS is showing up on the screen with a split picture. Top and bottom. Like the vertical synch is not working. I have tried a reset to factory from the menu and I have tried a reset and power off as described in manual. Again, I have two video images showing one on top of the other. Any suggestions?

It sounds like you have the "progressive scan" mode enabled. This changes the order that the scan lines (each horizontal line) is sent to your TV. When this setting doesn't match what your TV expects, you get this effect.

No picture but has sound in VHS, Both work in DVD play

The main cause of this is a dirty video head. You can get a head cleaning tape that will clean the head. Or you can do it manually. But you have to take off the top cover and spray the video head with Servisol Video 40. Allow it to dry and test the machine. If it doesn't do it the first time or the picture is breaking up, clean again.

No capture picture from VCR - honestech VHS to DVD 3.0 SE

Format:DVD
Video Type: NTSC

Split Size: choose GB.
Output folder: xxxxxxxx

Click OK, then play VHS, then press record button, then after finishing press stop.

This is a solution, probably resolve your problems as well, for converting VHS to DVD, its a tip I posted some time ago, might help you out:-

There appears to be quite a few problems with people trying to convert their video tapes to DVD using a PC and propriety converters, editing programmes etc.

Friends have also has such issues, lip synch being one of the most prolific.

I've successfully converted mine, without too much issue and managed to avoid these issues.

I hook up my VHS recorder with a DVD recorder2_bing.gif which also has a HDD. Daisy chaining it on to a TV to monitor. All with scart leads.

Play the tape, record to the DVD hard drive. Finally edit and dub to DVD.


Have fun ..............

Screen split with black bar through center, top of picture shows in bottom

It sounds as you desribe, the vertical output IC and or the b+ feed capacitor off the Hi voltage transformer feeding the vert. IC its required voltage. Not a really hard job to replace, but not for a handi person to do. This should be left to the professional, as there are no user serviceable parts inside this set and with the HI voltage and the safety issues its best to call somesone to assist you with this repair. Good Luck
