As you can tell from the topic heading, my video recorder is nothing special. I needed something to record and playback cassettes and that's exactly what it does. But I'm having a problem that I really need to find a solution for. When I record using my video, the tape plays back perfectly using the same machine. But if I try to play it in other video recorders, there are problems. The picture is fine, but the sound is not that from the programme that was recorded. As I said, it plays back fine (both picture and sound) in my Sharp VC-MH75, but if I record a show for someone else, they are unable to play it in their machine due to the sound issue. Tapes recorded using other machines playback perfectly in my video also (sound and picture). So again, the only problem is playback on other machines of tapes recorded in my video. I'm guessing there has to be a fairly simple solution to this. Is there a setting I should change in the setup process? Is there a button I can press somewhere? Thanks for any help you guys can provide. I've got a bunch of relatives who are waiting for a copy of various family events on video, and until I can resolve this problem, I can't help them out which is part of the reason I bought a new video in the first place.
