You will need more than an owner's manual, you need a service manual. This is not something the maker expects a customer to adjust. It likely involves some screws near the heads--but don't screw it up or you might as well buy a new player. In fact a new VCR may be cheaper than a manual and smaller than your model, too.
No manual tracking or if there is it wont help.either heads are worn or possibly dirty.if u open it .i assume u have.the silver drum has little notches around it.2 ,4,or 6 these are the heads.get some alchol or aftershave will do.take a peice of card playing card size is ok .must be plain not printed.apply some aftershave alchol to card not dripping ,hold card against the dum then with other hand turn the drum back and forwad not moving the card,u may damage heads.when u check card it should show some dirt reassemble and try.otherwise its museum time show the grandkids see if they know what a tape is
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
have you tried the following > 1)Get a head cleaner for the Vhs and run it 2) the next tim e you put in a casette it should adjust the tracking automatically you will see it on the screen as it is adjusting.
Could be dirty heads if you have a dry head cleaner tape try it (Maxell and RCA make ok tapes to try for ~:30-1min) ALSO:
There is a delay in the time you adjust the tracking and
the results being visable on the screen on this unit,
I suspect the tracking is adjusted off center. It takes some getting
used to the way this deck's tracking adjustment works as the VHS video
is upconverted to be captured onto the dvd and that is what you see,
the upconverted video, fed out to your TV, analog or digital, this unit
upconverts everthing to digital even analog channels, there needs to be
a noise/blue screen off feature in the menu like my old hitachi VHS
deck and my JVC ~$60 deck has now. On analog TV or old tapes it comes
in handy for adjusting the tracking/antenna.
