Top of playback picture waves back and forth | * A playback signal is not as stable as an off the air

appear bent or unstable during playback. This is
called, “Horizontal AFC time constant change.” To
correct, slowly turn the TV horizontal hold control.
If your TV does not have this control, or adjusting it
does not help, contact your TV service center.
(Some nominal service charges may be required.)
While head cleaning is normally not needed, playing old or
damaged tapes may clog the heads. When playback picture
resembles example at the left, head cleaning is required.
Ideally, head cleaning should be performed by a qualified
service technician. When this is not possible, purchase a
head cleaning cassette. Be sure to follow cleaning cassette
instructions exactly and only use when symptoms occur.
