I have vcr tape wont play in hifi all the time. and dose same thing in every vcr but has no other audio track


The hi-fi sound goes first. There is nothing you can do about it. Unless some special recording techniques were used, you always have a linear sound track too. Try to adjust TRACKING on the remote to hook up to the hi-fi track.

Do you have a tracking control on the

record It can be adjusted during playback
to clear up the picture adjust it for the best

If you dont have a tracking control on the

I HAVE A TOSHIBA VCR/DVD COMBINATION MACINE. THERE IS NO TRACKING BUTTON. iS THERE A WAY TO AUTOMATICALLY ADJUST THE TRACKING??


Usually VCRs do not offer specifically labelled tracking buttons as such, however they may incorporate tracking into their channel UP/DOWN buttons, both on the front of the main unit and/or remote. Some brands also offer V-LOCK (vertical lock or still image adjustment) (in pause mode during playback) to stabilise the image, reducing vertical jitter, which again can be adjusted as required using the same buttons as used for tracking. In most cases, pressing both CH UP and CH DOWN together while the tape is playing should centre track (revert back to auto tracking) the unit.

I am sure if your VCR has channel buttons on it, try pressing either one while a tape is playing. See if it affects the tracking at all. If it does, press both buttons together for 5 seconds or so, then release - auto/centre tracking takes over.

It costs nothing to try this, and it won't hurt your machine or your tapes.

I am having problems with the tracking at the top of the screen. This was given to me so I have no remote. Is there anything I can do without the remote?


First make certain the video heads are clean. If OK then most VCR use the up down TV channel selector to adjust the VCR tracking when in play. To test put in a good tape and play it, then keep your finger on either up or down button. If it works it should stop tracking properly (pressing the other control will bring it back).

I have an Emerson VCR Model EWV404, but don't have the manual. Is there a way to adjust the tracking? I have squiggley lines, but only with some tapes.


According to the Emerson VCR manual, during PLAY mode adjust tracking by pressing the CHANNEL buttons. It could be bad tapes also.

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.

Where's the Tracking Button?


If the speed originally was LP, that would explain the problem. Many new units will not properly play LP tapes. Do other tapes play Okay?...accordianman
