Atrk means that the unit is in auto-tracking mode and trying to lock in to the tape's recorded speed. This should go away after a short period of time once the tape has started.

When inserting vhs tape, the player pulls the tape from inserted vhs


That is exactly what a typical M-Load mechanism is supposed to do. Once the VHS tape cassette is inserted, cassette housing cover will be flipped up and two arms will pull tape out of cassette housing to wrap tape around cylindrical spinning head housing that contains video heads and, if VHS HI-FI, audio heads as well. When stop or eject button is pressed, arms will retract and tape will wind back into cassette housing. What type of problem are you experiencing with unit? It may have nothing to do with M-load engaging tape around head cylinder.

Are the SD-V296 and the SD-V296KU the same. My instructions on the KU does not say you can copy from VHS to DVD. Reviews I have read says the SD-V296 does copy from VHS to DVD.


Neither of these units can record to DVD; they are DVD players. I believe they are the same unit (the extra letters indicate a region code for the player).

The manual for the SD-V296KU is available from Toshiba here: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=2805081&rpn=undefined&modelFilter=SD-V296KU&selCategory=2797338&selFamily=2797344 .

I hope this helps.

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?


Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.


Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played

Hello, The problem could be dirt on the surface of the lens, you can clean this by removing the cover of the dvd player . Gently use a dry cotton bud to clean the lens because the lens is fragile. Insert the disc plate into the dvd player and press play, if it does not play try the second method. Ensure the cover of the player is open, connect the power plug to the mains socket and observe the lens if it beam a red light, Also check the ribbon cable use to connect the lens to the printed circuit board, then gently clean the lens with a dry cotton bud , insert the disc plate and press play to see if it play. If it does not play the disc, then this require a change of the lens

Using remote to play video DVD


You need to bypass your A/V tuner for your video connections (if possible). Plug your video directly into the TV and audio into the tuner. This will also give you a cleaner signal/picture as it does not have to processed by your tuner BEFORE it goes to your tv. Think of it as cutting out the middle man. Your tuner is best left for powering your speaker and not controlling your video despite all of the available connections in the back of it.

I would also get rid of your VHS and cassette players as they are dead technology. Clean up your system and remove the clutter. This will lessen your chance of getting interference. Good luck!!
