NATIONAL NV-370 This is a very old video machine but have been told it was one of the best produced by National. When it plays the picture is only in black and white...does anyone have a solution for the problem.

    Thank you very much Pravin. Have given the info to hubby who will check out what you have said. Like you said it is a 20 year old machine but it had little use. We have about 4 other machines, JVC, Sony which really have not had much use but all have one problem or another. The sad thing is that they prob can all be fixed but it is a case of economics these days isnt't it, lol. Cheaper to buy than to repair.

    Thank you again

Yes, the NV 370 was among the most produced and popular VCR machines by Panasonic. Ifthere is no color, only 2 reasons i can think of - 1. Check the Colour / B&W switch at t5he rear of the machine.It might accidently be on 'B&W' mode. 2. Clean the video Heads. Dirty Heads also show as B&W picture on this machine. 3. There is a internal circuitry fault (tho' very rare in this machine. If it is a circuit fault, then there is nothing you can do, unless you know Solid state Electronics servicing. And even after that, it may become difficult to service, as spares may not be available. Machine is a 20 year old model.
