Hey there... Had a Magnavox VR9242 cross my bench. Of course, all the work order said on it was "Doesn't work." My favorite. =)

But anyhoo... As far as I can tell, the issue is that the picture during video playback wobbles horizontally. I cleaned the heads, capstan, guide pins, etc., problem persists. I tried recording a video with it and played it on another VCR, and it wobbled there, too. E-E signal is steady from line as well as RF. Any ideas folks?

regards,
-c.

while in playback press pause, if picture still wobbles horizontally then the most likely problem is bearing failure in the lower drum, suspect that would be very expensive.

Do you happen to know if the video head in this model is the same as any other models? I can't seem to find it in the asti parts list.

NO IDEA, IT IS NOT AVAILABLE IN THE UK. BEWARE ITS NOT THE HEAD YOU REQUIRE BUT THE DRUM ASSY.

Whoops! Completely read that wrong. Oh well, no worries. The work order was cancelled as soon as I mentioned the word "expensive." =)
