It was a fine machine, a lot better than some of the others around at the time and a lot easier to service than the dreaded Panasonic G deck. Is this the one with frequency synthesised tuning? I had one like that but I can't remember if it was the same one. I think your fault could be caused by a faulty mode switch, that's if that deck has one, I can't remember that well now. ISTR it had a sliding type mode switch and a lot of VHS machines in the late 80's had them and they were a common failure causing all sorts of confusing deck faults. I once had an Aiwa machine with a fancy jog-shuttle system and that had a faulty mode switch which on that VCR was part of a big PCB and I had to retension the wiping leaf spring type contacts and that cured it until it suffered a serious syscon failure so that was the end of that one. There is a place in Sheffield that has some older VHS and tv parts, I think they're called Irwin. RR.
