Tracking is automatic. Try running a cleaning cassette. It should solve the problem.

Hi I am having a LG VCR GC980W 6 heads HiFi model. There is a bad picture and sound in some cassetes while playing while in another video the same cassetes works fine. I wonder whether it can be belt...


This is adirect drive type and the poor picture quality has nothing to do with the belt.
The fault can be due to
1. fault head- since this is a Hi-Fi type , it is 6 head type. try cleaning the head to confirm, use a clean cassette.
2. Problems in the head amplifier circuit.
3. Check the RF connection to TV.
4. Clean the audio head and use a ordinary cassette to confirm the sound. Also try with a Hi Fi cassette.

If not the head is a suspect.

I'm trying to transfer VHS film from my Daewoo VCR into my computer to copy it onto a DVD. HI FI flashes on the screen a couple of times and stays for about 10 seconds. How do I get rid of this?


It's an screen display for the Hi-Fi sound playing. However it should only come on when first starting. If it keeps popping up during playback it means that the Hi-Fi sound is dropping out then coming back on. This is often caused by poor tracking or the result of dirt on the video head. Clean the head and see if that solves the problem. If you are doing a lot of tapes keep cleaning it. Few video's have the option to remove on-screen displays. However if they do it will be on the menu somewhere.

I have a Sylvania SRD3900 DVD Player / VCR Combo that I purchased about 6 years ago. The VCR part is causing problems. When I try to play movies the picture is distorted with no sound, but it plays back...


The tracking needs to be adjusted. Sometimes it's a knob on the VCR, and sometimes it's a control on the remote. Adjust it for the best picture, and the sound shoud be restored.
Good luck, and hope this helps..

Picture bounces up and down


All new VCR's are auto tracking however, you should be able to manually track it using your remote, or there are a few reasons that the auto track can fail, the tape may have worn or ragged edges which means that the control head cannot get a clean reading, the control head may itself need cleaning or the tape path requires adjustments, adjusting the guides really needs to be done by a technician as a reference tape is used, or that the heads are low and a good video signal cannot be obtained to gain a reference point....Phil
