The differences are in the number of inputs/outputs, and the controls mainly it seems (https://elektrotanya.com/sony_slv-se610_se710_se810_sx710_sx717_sx810_x9.pdf/download.html#dl). The 810 e.g has...

It uses a standard 12 volt power adapter with a center-positive barrel jack connector that's used for a lot of things these days. The unit specifies it needs one with at least 1.2 ampere output...

If it's an alignment issue it would be the A/C head that needed adjustment most likely, tape guides cause distortion on top/bottom of image, not cyclical like this. If the A/C head is very misaligned...

That doesn't look like head damage (unless you mean control head but that seems a bit unlikely), it's an issue with tracking somewhere, either control head, cable or associated circuitry.

It's a bit hard to say too much without an actual clip but can at least see the capture was not done with S-Video out from a vcr as there are "chroma dots". Now that on it's own doesn't automatically...

Would maybe check if the mechanism is well-lubricated or if there are parts that are sticking a bit, can be useful to take the mech out and load/unload manually to see where it's struggling. Does it...

It also sounds like the sound is overdriven (unless it's like that on the tape). If possible, reduce the volume of the capture device, if that's not possible you would need something external to send...

On some of the clips the head switching point is moving all over so that's definitely an issue that happened when it was recorded. The servo circuit in the vcr is supposed to lock to the incoming...

Yeah was released together with the 7600 and 9600, not sure why it's not added to the list. Think the US 7600 is similar, while the PAL 7600 is simpler with no dynamic drum, JVC didn't use the 8xxx...

If it's a PAL model it'll likely work similar to the PAL es15 and newer models, if it's a north american unit much less likely, looks like it's a PAL model number though.

The first one almost look like it's only picking up the chroma signal (does it do this with both composite and s-video?) Would suspect maybe a lose connection or bad cap on the input line.

I know at least on the TBC/DNR on the JVC decks (and for that matter other vcrs) can struggle on very bad tapes like this and cause more distortion than they help for, so for this sort of tape I find...

They don't do anything while recording, they act to stabilize and reduce noise on the image during playback.

The larger one is bi-polar, so you need a replacement that is also bi-polar.

Also I would assume they are 47uf, not 4.7uf.
