I was going to see if a TRACKING ADJUSTMENT was available but I see there are many models. You may want to share the small details.

Bought a used Sharp Viewcam to play back some of my old (5yr) Hi8 tapes and was surprised to find I could only hear the audio and could not see any video. Is there anyway to recover the video? The Sharp View cam works fine, I put other Hi8 tapes in and they work fine so I know its not the camera. Any recommendations or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.Is there a compatibility issue I'm missing?
