Hi chaps, I'm really miffed with the above 10 month old video. It hasn't had that much use and after getting a Pace Twin its used once a week for about 90 mins. I installed a Joytech scart switcher on Monday so unplugged the VCR, TV etc from the mains. When I plugged it all back in a tried a video the sound crackled all the time and nearly the bottom 1/4 of the picture was black and white (no noise) and kinked too. I tried several tapes but they are all the same and so were new recordings. I bought a VHS head cleaner at the weekend and now new recordings are nearly right but crackle and jump horizontally a lot but old recordings are still the same. Any ideas? Wondering what the online firm I bought it from would do now as it was only £100 and it'll cost them to send someone out.
