Daewoo VCR showing split image!? Help :)
I am new to this forum and this is my first post. Not very handy with electronics I must say so I am looking for a solution.
I found an old Daewoo VCR (Multilingual DVR-8680SV OSP) along with a lot of VHS tapes and I bought a Video Capture dongle in order to convert them from analog to digital.
I managed to convert a few VHS tapes but earlier today I got a message that an error occurred and the recording stopped.
I noticed that the screen is split in half and moved slightly to the right (out of the frame). The bottom half shows the top half of the image and the top half shows the bottom half (so heads are down and legs ontop...) I unplugged everything, tried different tapes but the problem persists which means its an issue with the VCR. (these tapes looked fine before this problem)
I tried opening it in order to adjust the two pegs that take the magnetic tape without success.
I am attaching some images below for reference:
If you have any tips on how to resolve this issue please let me know!
Thanks in advance.
