Your heads are extremely dirty....try a head cleaner but the best way is to have it cleaned manually with acetone....head cleaners you buy are not as good as acetone, acetone will remove every bit of dirt and resiidue build up there is and leave it shiny clean like brand new but have it done professionally...otherwise unless you know what your doing, you can easily rip off the very fagile ferrite magnetic heads and then your only other choice would be to buy a new machine.

Copy tape to dvd using Q-VHQ 760 & Pinnacle instant dvd recorder. Playback looks great, unfortunately there is a thin fuzzy line at the bottom which never changes. My question - how can I fix this ? ...


Check the edge of the tape to see if it's wrinkled. That is the most common problem that shows that line. You may be looking at the head switching pulse too. Since your VCR has no tracking adjustment, it has to be done with special tools, an oscilloscope and a voltmeter. Not an easy task.

How do I get the picture?


The TV is usually set to Channel 3 or Channel 4. You may have a switch on the back of the VHS recorder near which is marked Ch3 Ch4.

Once you correct this, try the following procedure.

Some VHS have a tracking button that allows the user to tune to the best signal. The tracking can also be done from the remote controller.

Usually that tracking function is used as follows.
While movie is playing on the VHS unit and signal gets fuzzy, press the channel key repeatedly (for example >> to increase the channel number). f after awhile pressing the same channel change button does not find a better picture, you should press the other channel change button (to decrease the channel number <<) to see if the picture improves.

If that does not work, IT DOES NOT MEAN that you tv/vcr combo unit is defective. It could just be the movie. The tape is magnetic and it might have been accidentally demagnetized.

If picture is better with another movie/tape, your unit is definitely OK.

Auto tracking makes no differance.pic.covered by sound bars,black border at top of tape.vcr had stood for 3 months ununsed.on inital play,snapped tape,removed cover to extract tape. new tape kept ejecting...


Sounds like the guideposts need realignment to center the tracking or something got bent in the tape jam removal, check the tape path!. Also could try a take apart cleaning of the head with a piece of paper and some alcohol.

VCR has no color picture is clear but black and white


Vee, V, a Vee Cee Rrrrr ? Not a DVD?

If you are playing a VHS tape that should be color content and it's in Black and White ... well you could check the tracking control if there is one on that model. Otherwise it sounds pretty broken. Probably NWR. Not worth repair. Try Cleaning the heads with a cleaning tape???

Has fuzzy spots all the way across the screen and just scrolls up


Is the picture fuzzy whether you are waching tv or a dvd or a tape. If it's only fuzzy on tv or dvd or tape then it's the source. If all inputs are fuzzy suspect a bad tv.

Low FM from the video heads is a common cause of this lack of tracking.
