VWM-950 My VCR will tape, but when I play the tape back, the picture flips up (like rolling) really fast. (On a TV, you would play with the vertical button to set it correctly.) If I press the fast forward, the picture is clear. The sound is okay; just can't see the picture. When I play the tape on another VCR, I can see the picture, but the sound has a "grinding" type noise. Help, please! I need my VCR. Thank you!

    Haven't had a chance to go in town and get a cleaning tape yet. But I do really appreciate your help and your prompt response. I'll be going to town today and tomorrow and will pick one up and give it a try. Thank you!

I suggest you get the Tape path cleaned up. Could be dirty video heads or a dirty Control Head. Use a good 'wet' type cleaning cassette.

My VCR will not record but I can play tapes on it. how come?

The simplest explanation is that you are using a video tape that has it's protect tab removed. Covering the slot with tape will solve that. However if the tab is there, it might be that the switch inside it pushes on is bent or broken.

How to set counter while playing tape

Video tapes played through VCR experience vertical 'rolling'

unfortunatly no. the vert hold is set by black bars at the top/bottom of the video signal (outside of the viewable area). it sounds like your VCR or tape is damaged.

Rolling picture

Not likely. They probably just need to be cleaned and re-alligned. Rates vary, but our shop charges $20 to do that.

This model is the W528 VCR, but my manual includes both models

Does it do this with other television sets? If so, then it indicates the problem resides in the VCR. Rolling as you describe suggests either the VCR isn't producing a clean enough vertical sync pulse in the video signal, or the TV circuitry isn't processing the pulse properly. First, try cleaning the heads (not just the video head, but also the audio/control head which is to the right of the rotating video head. If this doesn't fix the problem, an electronic problem is likely. Unless this is a high dollar unit, repair is not recommended, as VCRs of the last 10 years or so are essentially disposable. I've done some looking on the 'net regarding copy protection, and it doesn't look like this is an issue here.
