Question VCR Recap and fine adjustments questions

Hello guys. I'm new here. I like preserving VCR, LD, Cassette Deck and turntable.

I want to restore my Toshiba M-7900C VCR from 1988. I changed Three rubbers, cleaned the heads and it works well. Except the display at the front panel is dimmed.

I would like to do some preventative maintenance by replacing all the caps, applying grease at the right spots or any other things you think are good to do.

I wonder if a recap Will change some of the settings... I have found knobs like; Meter, PB.Level, Bias and RD54Seperation

After my cap kit I excpected to play with those knobs. Are There any risks to that?

Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

I love VCRs!!!

Analogue is beautiful and I also love Videodisc,records and cassettes as well as 8 tracks

I dont think a recap would hurt anything but Im not sure.....I have heard RECAPPING record players might cause a differnet sound than your used to,I dunno...........


Good luck my friend -- Nice to have some other analogue lovers here!! (I was just scanning some of the bases for new activity and I found your thread )
