Sony dvd/vcr SLV-D500P

hardasdirtApril 26, 2009

I have a sony DVD/VCR model # SLV-D500P. Im experiencing some issues with the vcr aspect. the picture doesnt 'track' true. no amount of fiddling with the tracking helps there is always doubling/screen splitting and snow. sound is spot on though. i tried 'cleaning the heads' with q-tips and a very small amount of isopropyl alcohol and it seemed to do nothing. i use a coaxial cable to connect it to the tv. any ideas or suggestions anyone?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Sounds like an alignment issue or the video head is damaged. Probably time to take it to a tech for repair or replace it.
