My canon ip1000 printer show error "print head not available". but head already fix in place


The print head may not be proper electrical connection. Remove the print head and clean the electrical contacts on the ink cartridge and in the printer with methylated spirits, replace the print head and hopefully this will fix the problem.

Where is the tracking on this VCR toshiba w403?


On this unit there is no manual tracking button - it's done automatically by a special circuit that uses the special signal from the tracks themselves. If the tracking is bad then the heads are dirty and they don't pick that special signal.
Clean them with a special cleaning tape. If you can't source one the unit will have to be dismantled and the 4 heads will have to be manually cleaned with a q-tip moist with alcohol.

The integrated dvd player will not read the dvds, any advice on how to fix this problem, I have already tried a disc cleaner?


Please try to put in an ordinary audio CD track and see if this is detected. If yes the optical is working, if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility of the head being faulty is high.
Now certain cleaner disks are not read and so will not be tracked. Hence the rejection but the best is for cleaning manually the laser head eye with a cotton bud very softly and without pressing the lens eye.
If there is still no result then watch the CD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive, if so the board seems to work correctly and the possibility of the optical head being the suspected fault is closer.
Please take an estimate of the cost of the optical head before you can decide to replace.

Vcr wont play properly tracking seems to be off i have opened up the vcr player and given everything a good inspection but cant see any obvious issue with the ''mechanics'' of the device. The tape being...


It is possibe that the guide of the tape transport is gone a little off. This can happen if the guide has not loaded properly. check inside for obstructions to the link. if not try to screw down the half split screw a little down on either side to release the tracking/ noise onthe screen. Also clean the tracking head which is also the audio head. clean your roller if this is holding down the tape. Please do this with caution and care. clean your head and also the lower section of the head drum for dirt. you will see accumulation on/under the lower drum , Hope this helps. Good day

Can't play a tape back. Shows ''Trac'' as problem but no idea how to fix it


"Trac" means tracking. If adjusting the tracking controls doesn't solve the problem, you might need to clean the tape heads with Servisol Video 40. Clean the smaller heads first, then the drum and head.
You can get Servisol from most electronics shops.

Doesn't work anymore.


You may need to clean the heads.  You can find a head cleaning tape at Walmart, if you don't already have one. Follow the directions and run  head cleaner through it. That should fix the problem.

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.

No picture


This type of problem may be caused by a dirty video head, people some time try to adjust tracking to take care of this problem this is a mistake. Now to clear up this issue first you put the tracking control mid way in its setting, then you clean the heads of the VCR you can use a head cleaning tape (follow the instructions on the cleaning tape box)for this or if you have experience you use a chamois swab type cleaner (follow the instructions on the package of swabs and liquid cleaner). one the heads are cleaned you acn then try to adjust track to obtain the best picture. If you can not you may have video head problems or a problem in the drum motor (servo) mechanism. In which case I advise taking the unit to a TV repair shop.
