Question about Toshiba W627 VCR
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.
