The only real cure will be to clean the video head. If that doesn't work then I'm afraid that whatever recorded you EP mode tape was not set up well tracking wise. So other machines struggle to track the tape. Some VCR's will only playback SP or LP tapes and don't have EP mode. In which case you should check to see if these VCR's can play the EP tape and if they can't find one that can.
You need a set of RCA AV dubbing cables (available at fine electronics
stores everywhere), and a couple VCRs. Plug the cables into the "A/V
Out" jacks on the back of the VCR that will be playing, and into the
"A/V In" jacks on the VCR that will record.
Also on the recording
VCR, use a regular coaxial cable to attach it to a television.
set the TV to 3, fire up the VCR's, and set the recording VCR's TV/VCR
toggle to VCR. Also on the one that is recording, set the channel to
"INPUT" or "AUX" or something like that. (You're telling it to record
what it sees coming from the jacks you plugged the cables into.) Then
hit Play on the other machine. You should be able to see your tape
playing back. If you do, you have followed these directions correctly,
and you're ready to make your dub.
HINT: The first few feet of
tape are often prone to dropout and generally sucking. Record a minute
of black before making your dub. Mark this on the tape or tell them when
you turn it in. They will be impressed.
you may have the outputs hooked up correctly however you may need to set the inputs to the selected type of cable you are using. S video 1 cable or video input witch is an rca adapter yellow in color. you will find these setting in the "setup section" on the remote set up button will get you there and then input or source.
If you are recording the tapes in a slow speed, then I would suspect that the tracking pulse is not being recorded properly. Since this is a new VCR, return it for an exchange. One of the recording heads is bad.
The deck needs a good cleaning. Try using a brand new tape and run it on playback for 20 min or so. You could try using a cleaning tape, but many of them are abrasive. If this doesn't work, you need a deck re-alignment which will cost more than your set is worth.
