A few days ago I received the capacitor I ordered from some guy I found online. The capacitor he sent me looks a bit shady... I do not recognize the manufacturer... On it appears to be a logo that says TP? Well anyway I installed it in the power supply and the lines have finally disappeared. Nice! Also my multimeter now shows 0.50 instead of 3 when probing around in AC mode. There are still... I'd say 3 problems with it. The intermittent problems with the flex cable I talked about earlier, the recording "sensor" that broke off the loading tray a while back that I need to figure out how to re-install, and the capstan brake is inoperational due to a spring that flew away into a new dimension. None of those problems affect playback except the first one.

So I'd say the VCR is now suitable to be used as a machine to transfer tapes to my computer when I get a great capture card. I just need to pray so that the intermittent problem doesn't get in the way of a recording... Sometimes it will take hours and hours to appear, sometimes a minute. Which is what I still don't get by the way if the problem is a damaged connection then why would it be intermittent like this?
