I am still using a PANASONIC analog camcorder.
The camcorder uses VHS C cassette and it records and plays without any problems.
At my home I playback the VHS C tape with an adaptor on a regular Philips VCR.
I have noticed that tapes recorder during the last weeks on the PANASNIC camcorder do not play perfectly, as before, on the PHILIPS VCR.
Tapes that have been recorded on PANASONIC a year ago do play ok on my PHILIPS VCR.
So, I have a camcorder that records ok and plays ok the recorded tapes, but when I play the same tape on PHILIPS VCR - the bottom of the picture is distorted.
I have also tested the PHILIPS VCR and tried to record on it and playback the VHS C tape with an adaptor. Recording and the playback looks fine on PHILIPS VCR.

What could be the problem of playing back a tape on PHILIPS VCR that has been recorded on PANASONIC camcorder? Just to remind, that the problem appeared during the last period.

Probably just needs cleaned, could be alignment too.
