You will need more than an owner's manual, you need a service manual. This is not something the maker expects a customer to adjust. It likely involves some screws near the heads--but don't screw it up or you might as well buy a new player. In fact a new VCR may be cheaper than a manual and smaller than your model, too.
Sounds like the video heads are worn and time to replace them. You can try Asti Magnetics. The part number you are looking for is "378". Sells for $55 plus shipping. A bit cheaper but quality parts. I've dealt with them in the past. You can decide if the VCR is worth it to repair.
The noise from the TV is called 60 cycle hum and it is caused by a capacitor that is open, a test for ripple voltage will confirm this The noise from the VCR is more then likely common mode noise which would not be heard but for the bad capacitors in the TV. Simply put the common mode noise is being added to the 60 cycle hum. Now for how to fix this, if you have a background in electronics you can use a schematic, multimeter and an oscilloscope and Multimeter to find the bad capacitors, and the schematic to tell you what the voltages and %ripple should be. If you do not have a background in electronics, take the set to be repaired
