Question about Toshiba MW20FP1 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo
I record from television on a daily basis, recently when doing playback on vhs tape, the video flickers and neither digital or manual tracking stop the flicker. I have tried other vhs tapes but get the same problem. Any resolutions?

SOURCE: Playback Problem
open the recorder, 4 screws at each corner, wipe the playing head and the voice reccognition head, to the right of the playing head head with a baby wipe, you will be amiazed what **** comes off it. DON'T scrub it just wipe lightly, spin the playing head so it's clean. If you have a lint free cloth ( a glasses cleaning cloth you get in the case is brilliant) Try the tape (before you put it in make sure everything is DRY!) and your problem should be solved. It worked for me! and that came from a TV engineer

I believe you are using a RF wire Connecting a VHS, then searching TV station is an old way. I would recommend you use a RCA wire. By so doing, you won't need to tune any station on your TV. All you need to is select Source (AV) on the TV and the VHS would automatically display on your TV.
Below is what the RCA cord looks like:
The yellow stands for video (display), while the red and white stands for audio left and right (sound).
Purchase this cord from any electronics part store within your area, it's not expensive at all.
Look at the back of your TV, connect the yellow cord to "Video IN", connect the red and white to "Audio IN". Then connect the other end of the cord to Yellow: "Video OUT", and red or white to "Audio OUT", at the back of the VHS.
After the above connection, turn on the VHS, insert a tape, and press play. While the VHS is play, turn on the TV, select Source (AV) on your TV and your VHS will start displaying and you will hear sound.
I hope the above is clear. If you need further assistance, please let me know.

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?
Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.
Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played
