Pic on Mitsbushi WD-52525 jiggling like old VHS tape off track
My family and I were watching a DVD on PS3 with our Mitsubishi WD-52525 T.V. last night, and near the end of the movie the picture starting jigglng a bit. Sort of looked like watching a movie using an old VHS/VCR with the tracking off. It continued to get worse. I thought maybe it was my connection through my A/V Receiver, but plugged my Wii and Xbox 360 directly into T.V., and it still happened. My first thought was lamp was going bad, but lamp light did not turn yellow or red. What are signs when a lamp starts going bad?

I had this problem when copying an old family vhs tape. I had to unscrew
the top of the magnavox to access the vhs tape. Then, I gently removed
the tape and replaced the cover. After winding the tape back, I put it
in the player and immediately pushed fast forward for about 3 seconds
before hitting play followed by d.dubbing. I was able to make a copy of
the tape and did not damage my original.
Try a VHS Cleaning Tape Cassette. Follow it's instructions. If no better result it's not worth throwing away money on having repairs done but better put toward, if you can afford to, buying: Option 1. A VHS/DVD player (combo as these are known) and plug that into the Emerson AV input. Option Two: A VHS/DVD twin recorder combo deck - and plug that in. Then start on copying any VHS tapes you cherish to DVD on this device. Option Three: Forget the Emerson except for just using as a TV and buy a new TV with DVD player built in - the latest type of combo. (I'm having to guess whether you've just used tapes to watch or record and watch)
Could be dirty heads if you have a dry head cleaner tape try it (Maxell and RCA make ok tapes to try for ~:30-1min) ALSO:
There is a delay in the time you adjust the tracking and
the results being visable on the screen on this unit,
I suspect the tracking is adjusted off center. It takes some getting
used to the way this deck's tracking adjustment works as the VHS video
is upconverted to be captured onto the dvd and that is what you see,
the upconverted video, fed out to your TV, analog or digital, this unit
upconverts everthing to digital even analog channels, there needs to be
a noise/blue screen off feature in the menu like my old hitachi VHS
deck and my JVC ~$60 deck has now. On analog TV or old tapes it comes
in handy for adjusting the tracking/antenna.
First make sure your hdmi cable is connected from the PS3 to the TV. Then go to netcommand, review, and make sure "monlink" is checked, click next, and finish. Select "monlink" from your device manager and turn on your PS3. If the screen is blue, go to the next step. Connect the PS3 via regular a/v cables to the front panel "input-3". Create a net-command device for input-3 as well. Switch to the input-3 device you created and turn on your PS3. Choose display settings, and change the settings to HDMI. Then click change. You'll have 30 seconds to hit device manager, change the device to "monlink", and let the PS3 unit know the setting has worked. From there you can configure. Good luck!
