Re: video noise at bottom of screen, possibly tracking...

Guide error or just guide cleaning. You have to get an alignment tape from Panasonic. Then you have study the tape path and know wich guides move and roll and which don't. Then you should demagnatise them all. Then a head cleaning is in order.
then you put the tape in and watch the playback it can be either the main entrance guide or more likely the exit guide these are found right and left sides at the top of the drum threaded up. Sometimes these guides come loose over time this is a job for an experienced tech and if you don't know what you are doing you'll never get the deck in proper alignment.

Tracking on vwm700

Most Sanyo VCR's have auto tracking, but pressing the + or - buttons on the remote during playback should correct any noise problems. Though sometimes bad tracking is caused by dirt on the video head.

Noise in sound track and picture flutters.

Sounds like it could be dirt on the video heads. A good clean up with Servisol Video 40 might do the trick.

The sound on my Panasonic pv-4611 fades in and out while watching tapes. Doesn't matter whether they are factory or recorded ones by myself. Why?

This sounds like the Hi-Fi sound dropping out. It's mostly caused by dirt on the main video head. You need to clean it with either Servisol Video 40 or a head cleaning tape.

Panasonic VHS VCR Playback mode Tape Stuttering between LP and SP

This is most because the control head may be dirty, this haed picks up the pulses from the tape to regulate the speed & tracking if this is off it can produce both the faults you describe. Also it is possible the pinch roller (black roller on the right hand side of the deck mechanism, sits just in front of the control head), this may be worn especially as the machine is five years old, this will cause the tape to guided off alignment.

Picture is jittery and voice is garbled with noise in background

I had the same problem recently with a Panasonic PV - V4521 which has worked for years for me. I tried everything including cleaning the heads with Q-Tips and pure alcohol. Nothing improved. I tried tape head cleaners. Nothing. So finally one day, as I was unscrewing the cables, this VCR fell down onto the bottom of my foot and drew blood. Now remember, I had been trying to fix this thing for at least 10 days.
So, I dragged it up and pounded the top of the VCR until the top caved in. Then, I opened my front door and tossed it so hard against the floor of my patio that pieces went flying everywhere. I gathered up the pieces and the twisted VCR, put it in a box, and tosses it real hard into the dumpster. It's fixed. I have no more problem with it.
