Hi 77,

I would be happy to look at this for you although I can't guarantee that it will be the fastest repair in the world!

I started my VHS repairing life with 3v22's while I was still at school and sold quite a few 'ex rental' machines to friends and family.

I have a soft spot for VHS and currently have a 3v16 which is similar to the 22 but with trick play functions.

I remember reading your thread and it looks like you have an electronic fault, which are always rather fun to diagnose!

I'm in Great Dunmow (well not at the moment, but I will be in a couple of weeks), so getting it to me shouldn't be too difficult - would you be able to bring it over? If not, I'm sure we can sort something out.

Feel free to send me a PM if you would like to discuss the finer details!

All the best
Nick

Hi 1100 man, thats very much appreciated!

This should be right up your street then as I think it's ex-rental too! (well it is now if it wasn't before!) I've always liked the 3V16s too, but I tend to like the first of things!

iirc, it was mentioned to be an E-E fault, but I just don't have the skill or tools to really do this job unfortunately.

If I can't make it to Gt Dunmow, I'm fairly sure my mum travels to/through there quite a bit for work, so she may be able to take a bit of a detour on her travels.

Will send you a PM now

Thanks again, I really appreciate it
