Could anyone help me identify the blue components on this picture ? (I don't care about the value)

The symbol underneath looks like a coil in a box.

The PCB comes from an old VCR.

Thanks !

They are just inductors. Their values can be decoded from the coloured dots in a way similar to decoding resistor color codes.
