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?

Recorded from tv shows to DVD Disc have to hookup AV RCA component cables to both to Tv and DVD recordable player model connections together.Yes,u will able to recordable VHS tapes to DVD Discs.But ur DVD player model u have it is must be a recorderable DVD player model?Not just a DVD Discs and VHS tapes player only model.Check ur owner manual all are in there.
If the fault is only with tape play, and not with on air programmes, it is surely either with the tape or with the mechanism. Look at the tape filim for any curl at its bottom edge. If there is curling, rolling will occur becuse, contol signals are recorded at the botton edge of the tape. If top edge hage curling, sound will be effected. If there is no such mistake with tape, the pintch rollar of the VCR mechanism has worn out, and should be replaced. OK.
The loss of picture in playback mode is due to a dirty video head or heads. You might be able to solve this problem with a simple head cleaning tape. if not, the video heads will need cleaning manually. This should me performed by a TV technician as there are some dangerous voltages inside. if you choose to do the repair yourself, you need to disassemble the unit to reveal the VHS player itself. Inside there is a round shiny video head. This part is at a slight angle and should be. Dont try to adjust it. Take a piece of paper, saturate it with alchahol or acetone and place the paper flat against the side of the video heads. Spin the heads in counterclockwise direction only paying close attention to the small slots near the seam of the two heads, upper and lower cylinder. Carefully wipe clean with cotton swab and let dry a while before using the unit.
U have play back problems on playback SP LP SLP modes tuggles problems.Try website like Remotes.com to buy the tv original remote,have these buttons to set the correct VHS tape play back modes tuggles problems.
Sounds like a case of dirty heads on the VCR. You can try using a head cleaning cassette (Radio Shack has one on their website, so it might also be available in stores, or you can search for other vendors online). Or you can see if there might still be a service shop or video rental place in your area that offers cleaning. It's getting tough to find service on VCRs as they give way to DVDs. All it takes is a little oxide from a worn tape to cause the symptom you're seeing.
When you are recording, do you hear the vhs tape(motor) moving? Is the tv\vcr combo connected to the same power(electrical) plug with ANYTHING else ? On the SAME wall outlet with anything that generates noise?. Do you have ANYTHING ( electric clock ) WITH a motor connected to the same line\wall\outlet\power adapter?
2nd) Any loose ground [wires that go to any menal part inside TV\VCR will cause problems. Be very carful inside electronics parts and when they are alive [pluged in & turned on], Some times loose VHS rubber bands cause problems by slipping and jerking the tape recording.
not much of a help but sounds like your record head is bad on the vhs heads,
use cleaning tape try that, if that fixes great, if it helps but not fully there, you might have to clean them by hand with very soft paper town and rubbing alcohol rub side to side very easy , if none of the above work you have a bad record head or record board, not worth repair vs cost
