Remove the casing of the unit. You will see a head where the tape runs across. Keeping it powered up, with tape in....There are three screws around the base of the head. With a small phillips adjust the head by turning the screws one by one. If you adjust out too far, the screws will come out completely. Take your time when adjusting. You will notice the picture change with the turning of the screws. The sound will change also. It takes very little adjusting to get it right. Play around with it and it will work in no time...Good Luck

The VCR has at least four "heads" two are for 2 hr and two for 6 hour (sp and slp)

It is most likely one of the heads used in the SLP mode is slightly blocked with tape debris--heads need to be manually cleaned in the right way.

How to repair Panasonic VCR Combo PV-D4742 which flutters at playback. DVD unit works fine.


your videoplayer(vhs) heads are dirty, use a vhs cleaning tape, buy from your local music store, or ask them where to get one, or your the videotapes you are using are worn, try other newer less used tapes if they work fine then the tapes your trying to play are worn, otherwise dirty play heads are the problem.

Not able to view the picture


You may need to change the input on your tv, and check the output cables to make sure they are hooked up correctly.

Vhs SP tapes


It sounds like the tapes may be physically damaged, wrinkled or creased. This may have been done when they were played in whatever machine you used 5 years ago. Tapes can also be damaged in storage by heat or humidity. Tapes should also be stored on end in their boxes, not flat. If these tapes were stored flat, the bottom edge might have gotten wrinkled. This can damage the control track and cause playback issues.

VCR tape playback not good


Check your "tracking" If the tape played fine in the old machine, then tracking is the answer, provided that the new machine records good.

Rolling picture


Not likely. They probably just need to be cleaned and re-alligned. Rates vary, but our shop charges $20 to do that.
