This is not a tracking issue. There are capacitors on the head/drum assembly that are failing. This prevents the motor servo from keeping the heads spinning at the correct speed. This will show up as a loss of color. There should be 3 caps on the head/drum assembly that should be replcaed. Please note that they may be surface mounted caps which are more difficult to replace if you have not done it before.

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.

How to record on a SOny SLV-N77 with a cable box


Hello
If the cable box you uses has audio video OUT sockets, then you can connect that sockets to the audion video IN to the VCR and can record the signals which you want. If it has no such audio video OUT with it, it will be very difficult to record programmes. But there is an other possibility; It is, if your TV has an AOUDIO VIDEO OUT sockets with it, you cn connect that to the AUDIO VIDEO IN to the VCR and can record the programmes. But in this case, you must switch ON all the devices, that is, Cabel box, Tv and VCR. OK.

How do i adjust tracking. tapes roll. used a cleaning tape, didn't help. there is no switch for manual tracking.


Cleaning tapes are not as good as going in with a can of Servisol Video 40 and some cotton buds. Take the top cover off and give it a really good clean with them. Clean everywhere the tape touches. Make certain you allow to dry before trying again. If that doesn't work you could have a faulty head.
PS it will take longer to clean if it is housed in a room where people smoke!

The tape only plays back in black and white.


normally this would be a tracking error, if you can manually adjust the tracking, this should fix the prob...if there is no way to manually adj the tracking, use a video head cleaner to see if cleaning the heads will help the auto track to function better.

Picture bounces up and down


All new VCR's are auto tracking however, you should be able to manually track it using your remote, or there are a few reasons that the auto track can fail, the tape may have worn or ragged edges which means that the control head cannot get a clean reading, the control head may itself need cleaning or the tape path requires adjustments, adjusting the guides really needs to be done by a technician as a reference tape is used, or that the heads are low and a good video signal cannot be obtained to gain a reference point....Phil

Tracking


Does this happen on ALL tapes?

Depending on WHICH model VCR you have (old or new) SOME have a switch which will allow you to adjust tracking MANUALLY. When the switch is in the manual position, it won't track automatically. If some played with that switch, that could cause your problem.

ALSO, do you have a cleaning tape? If the control track head is dirty, it won't see the "control track" (which gives you VCR information to control the tracking.

Another possibility is one of the video heads (there's 2 or 4) is dirty, and without ENOUGH video signal coming off the heads, it's not possible to track properly.

Try running a cleaning tape through. If you've never done it, it might be time. Unless yu know about equipment I'd wouldn't suggest you open the machine and clean it yourself. Let me know how you make out.

Can hear crackling or spitting sound when selecting HI-FI


The "crackling" sound you describe sounds suspiciously like mis-tracking. That is: The result of the Hi-Fi heads (which are on the rotating video headwheel or drum) not exactly following the recorded tracks. Have you tried adjusting the tracking slightly? The reason this happens is that the Hi-Fi tracks are MUCH narrower than the thinnest video track (used for 6 hours per T120 tape). Tape stretches and shrinks as it ages. Video recorders wear with normal use in such a way that the tracking changes. The problem is often worse with tapes recorded at the SLP (6 hour) speed because the servo cannot correct errors as fast when the tape is moving slowly (on some machines only). Tape quality also counts...and manufacturers change their formulations without public notice. All these things can lead to "archived" tapes being lost. Solution: Use the best quality tape you can afford, not the cheapest; record at the highest possible speed. Store the tape carefully. Never use a cheap "rewinder" because they can over-tighten the tape causing wrinkles, stretches, and other kinds of damage.
