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.

Vcr ejects after 10 seconds


The tape is wound tight or is not wound evenly creating friction. There is a safety feature designed into the vcr that senses that there is too much tension. Fast forward all the way then rewind all the way. This is the way it was in the 70's 80's for cassette tapes and vhs tapes. If the tape still ejects then check the belts.

Our Toshiba VCR won't play tape. It ejects tape after a few seconds.


If you are trying to play older VHS tapes, you may have to run them through some fast forward-rewind cycles to condition them and relieve stress

I have a Toshiba DVD/VCR combo and I want to know if i can record a VHS onto a blank DVD disc ?


It all depends on the model of DVD/VCR Combo and what VHS you want to copy.

Pre Recorded VHS are copyright protected so the system won't let you copy them.

Trying to hookup vhs analog player to hd proscan


your toshiba player should have output composite video and audio which are color coded Yellow for video, red and white for audio same goes for proscan hdtv. connect between the two keeping in mind color of cables. If the toshiba player is really old you can connect the RF cable output to antenna input to the proscan tv and watch taped programs from the player on channel 3 of the proscan tv. If then you want to keep the hookup and still watch HDTV connect the antenna to the toshiba vcr and when you shut off the vcr you can now watch the hdtv channels as usual because now you are bypassing the antenna to the Proscan tv. Hope this Helps..

Can you record a dvd from vhs on this system ?


No you cannot - This is a DVD *PLAYER* / VCR combo - which means it features a DVD player & VHS recorder in one - you cannot record onto DVD - You can however watch a DVD while recording your tv program on the VCR.

I hope this answers your question.

If you want to convert your VHS to DVD you will need to purchase a standalone DVD recorder - I personally do not reocmmend the DVD recorder / VCR combos - or you can use a HDD/DVD recorder which stores recordings on a hard drive and later you can burn them on DVD, they allow editing, more flexible recording options, etc

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
