Question about Toshiba D-VR4 DVD Recorder/VCR
I get a message code "Atrk" on the dvd-video player's display screen every time I load a vhs cassette. The DVD player works fine.
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.

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
