when playing a tape, the picture appears fuzzy

hi,

trying to find out what may be causing the picture to be fuzzy when playing a tape. as you may know that when the vcr is not cleaned regularly, then the picture can appear fuzzy on the tv screen. that's how it appears, except, i have cleaned the vcr, but it still appears that way. please explain what may be causing this and also if this is something i can repair. it just does that when playing a tape, other tahn that, the vcr is ok.

thanks

it sounds like the heads are still clogged. it may take many cleanigs to restore the picture.also the tracking heads may be diirty as well.
you want to clean the entire tape path using isopropl alcohol, taking the cover off to clean it. the heads should be cleaned with a chamois stick. good luck snuffs

OR, you may have a bad connection/cable between the vcr and tv.
