Looks like the VCR half of my eleven-year-old DVD-VCR combo finally gave up the ghost today.
After several months of inactivity, I decided to fire it up. Roughly halfway through a badly degraded copy of Wild at Heart, the picture went snowy; subsequent attempts to clean the VCR’s innards availed me naught.
Now I have more incentive than ever to replace my remaining videotapes.
