    Hello

    I have a panasonic NV-FJ710 VCR which is only a couple of years old, but has developed a peculiar image fault.

    When viewing anything either on my TV via the video channel through the coax lead, or on the AV channel via the scart, the picture is "whited out" as though the TV contrast and brightness has been turned up full. You can just about see the image behind it, but not very clearly. This applies to anything being watched on the video or anything played through it (ie another VCR or sattelite receiver)

    Other TV channels, which obviously are still fed through the video, appear fine. Its just the video channel itself and the scart outputs.

    My local repair shop were stumped, and couldn't get anything back from panasonic. I have not tried my local panasonic specialist as they want £30 just to look at the thing.

    Any ideas what the problem might be, is it worth paying the £30, or should I just pay the extra £20 and get a brand new one seeng as VCR's aren't worth much these days?

    TIA

    Given the cheapness of half-decent VCRs nowadays, repairs are rarely cost-effective (unless you are particularly fond of the thing). I hope you get a DIY solution here (not that I can help) but failing that, treat yourself.....
