On most VCR's you can use the channel buttons to adjust the tracking. There's usually channel buttons on the front panel of the machine so you don't need a remote.

Most VCR's have manual tracking. Generally it will use a set of keys on the remote used by another function. Often the channel up down keys! This will also apply to the controls on the video itself.

Bad tracking is also caused by dirt one the heads or tape path. So clean the machine first before adjusting the tracking.

Adjust tracking go on go video vr3930


Tracking will only adjust on the VCR and may only be on the original remote.

Note that if there is tape debris or black residue on posts and guides or even video head drum tracking will not adjust--any debris will cause tape to move away from the drum resulting in a tracking like issue---tape cleaners rarely resolve this.

Tracking on vwm700


Most Sanyo VCR's have auto tracking, but pressing the + or - buttons on the remote during playback should correct any noise problems. Though sometimes bad tracking is caused by dirt on the video head.

I HAVE A TOSHIBA VCR/DVD COMBINATION MACINE. THERE IS NO TRACKING BUTTON. iS THERE A WAY TO AUTOMATICALLY ADJUST THE TRACKING??


Usually VCRs do not offer specifically labelled tracking buttons as such, however they may incorporate tracking into their channel UP/DOWN buttons, both on the front of the main unit and/or remote. Some brands also offer V-LOCK (vertical lock or still image adjustment) (in pause mode during playback) to stabilise the image, reducing vertical jitter, which again can be adjusted as required using the same buttons as used for tracking. In most cases, pressing both CH UP and CH DOWN together while the tape is playing should centre track (revert back to auto tracking) the unit.

I am sure if your VCR has channel buttons on it, try pressing either one while a tape is playing. See if it affects the tracking at all. If it does, press both buttons together for 5 seconds or so, then release - auto/centre tracking takes over.

It costs nothing to try this, and it won't hurt your machine or your tapes.

I am having problems with the tracking at the top of the screen. This was given to me so I have no remote. Is there anything I can do without the remote?


First make certain the video heads are clean. If OK then most VCR use the up down TV channel selector to adjust the VCR tracking when in play. To test put in a good tape and play it, then keep your finger on either up or down button. If it works it should stop tracking properly (pressing the other control will bring it back).

Is there a tracking system on this VCR? We have several tapes that are jumping or skipping. Sylvania 6240VD


All VCR's have tracking, it's not however clearly marked on the remotes often. Some use the up-down channel channel selector or other keys, while some have it on a menu somewhere.
It's also worth cleaning the heads sometimes with Servisol Video 40. Just take the top cover off and spray both the big video head and the smaller heads. Let it dry up before trying a tape.

When playing a vhs tape the pics jump half way through watching. trying to record these old family tapes to dvd. is there a type of vcr i can buy to manually fix tracking or is there another way to solve...


There are two reasons that might cause loss of tracking halfway into a video tape. The first means you can't really do a lot about it. To check it is this is simple. When you get to the point the video jumps, stop the VCR and eject the tape. The look at the tape itself by lifting the flap at the front (push the small catch on the right side). Examine the section of the tape. If you see any damage to the tape (it should look smooth and shine) then it will never track properly.
Another cause of the jumping is caused by the take up reel, getting sluggish. Sometimes these are run off a belt, that becomes slack, replacing it could solve the problem, or it could be something else in the mechanism that's causing it.
There is another solution, particularly if the tape wasn't recorded on the machine that is playing it back. I haved used loads of different VCR's and I found that the tracking has never been set up right on any! This means that only the VCR it was recorded on generally gives the most correct playback.
Having said that it is possible to get a VCR with really good tracking. I have found that Panansonic VCR's have the best tracking. I currently have a NV-HS900 which can track just about everything, but you will only get one seconed-hand now.

How do you adjust the tracking to a Maganovox mwd 2200 dvd combo


  • You can (i do) say thanks to engineers.
  • they made after some time VCR's with auto-tracking (digital controlled).
  • (exception:**IF you find some modern VCR's and have tracking: this control is pretty sure in the remote control or inside the menu**)
BUT
If you have problems as tracking point of view. (and not tracking in the remote control or any place else (menu) or front panel, etc
  • VCR needs a good maintenance. The sensor (control head) is dirty now. Or someone went inside the mechanism (I don't think so) and move something there. IN any sense the service is needed for this problem in VCR.
  • But if you mean the DVD
  • you need the technician to replace the pick up laser.
