VCR build year Can't Post

Hello,
Does anyone know of a site where I can find the approximate build year of VCR's with undated labels? It's not that I haven't been doing lots of searches to find a place. I am currently trying to find the build year of a Sharp VC-H972U.
Thank you in advance for any help.
Mike

Sometimes the plastic pieces (ie. inside the front panel) have a 'clock' or 'grid' with at least a year & month 'ticked'.
Some parts may have date codes usually consisting of the year & week part was manufactured. I've had some luck with Sharp motor labels.
Finally you can find the year in the serial number of many units. Some are out in the open, some will use a simple number/letter 'code.'

There may even be a date code on the front or rear cover of that Owner's Manual.

One or more of these should at least get you in the ballpark. Wink

jts1957,
Thanks much for the great and helpful info. I haven't opened it up yet to clean the heads, etc so I'll throw on the magnifying glasses and have a thorough look around.
T'care.
Appreciatively,
Mike
