Most VCR's have manual tracking. Generally it will use a set of keys on the remote used by another function. Often the channel up down keys! This will also apply to the controls on the video itself.

Bad tracking is also caused by dirt one the heads or tape path. So clean the machine first before adjusting the tracking.

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.

My jvc has developed a tracking problem when viewing tapes recorded on other recorders. I cant seem to correct the problem. It shows old tapes without a problem


VCR tracking has to be set up right, but even then many machines have problems with tracking other vcr's tapes. Generally a good quality commercial tape should track well. If it doesn't then either there's a fault with the tracking on your machine or the tracking is not set up right. Most tracking problems are caused by dirt, or wear on the heads or surfaces. Give your VCR a good clean up, every surface the tape comes into contact with, using Servisol Video 40. If that doesn't solve it you might have to look into the cost of replacing heads, maybe the control/audio head first. Or you should look at having the tracking set up by a proffessional (at a JVC service center). However if the tracking was off, after resetting any tapes the machine has done, may now have problems tracking, whilst other machines tapes and commercial will track normal.

On most VCR's you can use the channel buttons to adjust the tracking. There's usually channel buttons on the front panel of the machine so you don't need a remote.

VCR tape playback not good


Check your "tracking" If the tape played fine in the old machine, then tracking is the answer, provided that the new machine records good.

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.

You need to change the Audio / Control Head, as well as the Pinch Roller of the machine. A worn out Audio cum Control Head will reflect in poor tracking and so will cause the above problems.
