    One of our VCRs cause a purplish horizontal scrolling bar, about 1/3 of the
    screen height on the TV. Scroll speed is about 2 seconds or so. Any idea
    what could cause this? Dirty heads?

    Thanks,
    Lukas

    Q1: Is this happening all through the tape or just in one spot for a few
    seconds??
    Q2: does this happen on ALL tapes or just tapes that you have home
    recorded???

  3. Circuit problem. Power supply capacitor(s) most likely.

    All tapes, and for full duration..

    I'll open it up and check PSU caps as Mark had suggested.

    Thanks,
