  1. Hi there,
    on a fleamarket I got a NV-180/VS-120 portable vcr. Cover sligtly
    damaged, but works fine.
    Some questions to those who are familiar with this vcr:
    This unit has 4 videoheads. When I start a longplay-prerecorded tape, a
    label "LP" occured in the display, sound seems to be OK, but the drum-
    servo does not lock-in.
    Failure or are the two additional video-heads only for better freeze-frame?
    The LC-Display has not enough contrast, when I look perpendicular on it,
    nearly nothing can be seen. Is this normal or what is to do?

    I think, the drive mechanism is the best panasonic had ever made.
    5 motors, everything is direct-driven, even the reels...
