Hey guys,

got a Sylvania VCR VC2234SL01 that has a few issues. I got it for free and it's like one my parents had when I was a kid and really like it so I want to try to fix it and use it.

To start when you play tapes it occasionally has a snowy screen. I adjust the tracking but it doesn't always improve it. But it's not always happening. For the other issue it will have issues when ejecting tapes. The tape itself will get caught and not come out due to the unit "eating" the tape. I have a few sacrificial VCR tapes so I can test the unit but I want to make sure it's fine before I try any tapes I don't want ruined.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
