RCA Video Cameras - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Do you have a model number? I found a manual for the RCA Pro8, Pro807, from Voxx here: https://voxxintl.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/225487888-Information-and-Owner-s-Manual-for-the-RCA-PRO8-Model-PRO807-Camcorder . The direct link to this manual appeared as https://sc.voxxintl.com/docs/common/PRO807/PRO807_OM.pdf in my browser history.

I hope this helps.

Try Googling (RCA)(model)(manual) without parens.

Possible causes: the sync signal head is not recording, there is a mismatch between the capstan motor speed and the video head speed, or one of the sync circuits has a fault. Typically, if the picture rolls up or down, it's a vertical sync problem. A horizontal sync fault or tracking mismatch will cause the picture to tear sideways.

Try cleaning the sync head (one of two heads separate from the video head drum; the other is the audio track head), but don't be surprised if doesn't solve the problem.

I am sorry to say that it appears you may have answered your own question, the "hundreds of hours" is the clue.
Consider the possibility that your camera is worn out.

The vhs camcorder has very complex mechanics and hold many traps for the inexperienced.

I suggest you begin by obtaining a standard vhs recorder and remove the cover to expose the interior and then study it. You will find the engineering and interior geography of your camcorder similar.
The round shiny barrel-shaped thing contains the record and playback video heads and the sound head is separate and looks like a larger version of what can be seen in a standard audio cassette recorder.

The interior must be extremely clean, the drive belts in good condition and the clutches and rubber rollers also in good order.

It appears to have a built-in USB connector, use that.

Poor signal strength.

This is extremely old technology - replace it, as parts and service will not be available.
