The tension arm has a spring on it that you have to adjust by either bending th etang that it is anchored to or on most models, just stretch or shorten the spring. However, this is rarely required. as long as the tension arm is somewhere in its range of travel when the tape is playing it should be OK. Tape tension problems are more commonly caused by something sticky in the tape path causing it to drag. You can spend a lot of money on calibrated tension meters, but I always did just fine feeling it with my finger and comparing it to a known good VCR.

I have a Toshiba VCR w522 and would like to record a program previously recorded from a DVR. Is it possible?


If the vcr has two scarts connect the DVR player to one and select that imput. Watch the program using the the other scart connected to the TV. Press record on the vcr and then start the DVR player going. If it doesn't have two scarts use the front panel jacks to connect the DVR player.
The only time you won't be able to record a program is if somekind of anti-copy system is employed.

How do I adjust tracking on Zenith vcs442 player?


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. -Ken

Tapes not playing


Hey do the tapes play at all? sometimes some tapes recorded
on other machines won't play on others. maybe you need to adjust the tracking on the VCR you are playing it on. If the tape
was recorded on a VCR that is misaligned it might not play back
on another VCR. Also the tape may have been recorded on a
super VHS VCR in et (extended definition) mode if so they won't play on just any VCR. If the picture looks scrambled like a
premium channel on analog cable then it's probably recorded in et.
and if its recorded on super VHS tape it may eject out of your VCR.
They don't make these S-VHS vcrs anymore but people still
have them around. There is also Digital VHS they're not
compatible with VHS either. A VHS recorded in et mode will
play on some more expensive vcrs it should say so on the box
or instructions.
