Hi,I have 2 brand new ED343's and both have something wrong with them. The first one has very poor quality sound, the auto tracking doesnt seem to help this. Its bassey and soft. The second player gives a very garbles image until auto tracking is completed, but still, the image doesnt fully resolve... theres still broken sections across the picture as it plays back...
(Is this a problematic or cheap & nasty unit?)

Re: Two new players, both dont work properly!
If these are indeed brand new, take them back for warranty exchange.
Symptoms as you describe point to oxide deposits on the audio/control head (the poor audio), and on the video head unit (poor, garbled video). Or, a tape path alignment problem could cause such. Try cleaning the heads- I prefer using a lint free cloth moistened with something like Tun O Wash, or another Chemtronics cleaner. I've used rubbing alcohol also.
As on other posts, VCRs of the last 10+ years are of the disposable variety, very different of the "built like a tank" rigs of the '80s & early '90s. Compare the pricing of units of then & now- You just can't buy the quality of those $400+ VCRs in a sub $100 unit of today.

You may wish to run a self adjusting in test mode or user tools. Also, what type of paper are you using? This is critical good quality prints. You might check your ink cartridges to see if there is an obstruction. Download the manual or check your printed manual you should have when you bought the printer.
Full isn't always the answer, in order to refill a cartridge properly you need to also replace the cleaning blade inside. The blade wears out and doesn't clean the drum properly and also lets toner leak all over. Your best bet is a new OEM cartridge, or put a new cleaning and Dr. blade in yours.
With my experience on Car audio systems, the main culprit for electrical trouble is Connectors.
Check the connectors; especially the RCA connectors (Round Coaxail connectors), unplug them and plug them back in while the CD player is playing. Any problem there will be obvious. If that's it, clean them off with a dry cloth, perhaps poke a Q-tip into the receptical to clean that.
Most often, just removing and re-attaching (or even just wiggiling) the connectors is good enough.
This is especially the most likely culprit if you live close the the ocean's salty air, or in a place that had roads salted for snow and ice.
I haven't used that particular program, but I've made hundreds of DVDs. The first rule is to use good brand name media, I recommend Verbatim. Pixelation is a sign of poor quality media quality. Give it a try with Verbatim disks.
If you didn't have this problem with the last toner than more then likely the new one is deffective. It seems to be having a ghosting issues which happens when the dr blade inside the toner does not clean properly. You need to try another toner cartridge.
I hate to be the one to tell you this but this player has had more then its share of problems! These units are almost all defective and stores have had an over 69% return rate!! because of the poor quility of these units! ( The player is not worth fixing and I would return it as soon as possible! even if you dont have the recipt the store should at least give you store credit!
