So I went to archive some VHS today and I haven't used my VCR in quite some time. I noticed a problem on the left side of the screen that has, what appears to be, some red and blue video noise running vertically down the picture. Any idea what this is? Is it just the VCR crapping out on me finally? I tried cleaning the heads but this looks more to be a different issue.
Any advice would be appreciated!

Thread: Problem with VHS VCR...help?
I don't see anything in your png but it sounds like Hollywood's Macrovision. Try another tape.Author, Producer, Composer, Director - Sony HDV, Konica SLR, LG BD burner

I see the "rainbow" at the left edge of the frame. Lightened and saturation pumped up:
I don't know the cause. Maybe some ringing in the chroma channels as the luma goes from Y=0 to Y=16 at the edge. That doesn't seem like the kind of thing aging electronics would cause. Is it there only when the frame is black?
pal vcr playing ntsc tape ?
I've witnessed this before with a brand new standard vcr , except it was a large vertical green bar in the middle of the image. All the ntsc tapes i played with it had such defect (retail or home tapes didn't matter.. so not macrovision)
Nope. It's an NTSC VCR.
