A-TR is auto tracking, possibly due to older video cassettes or a faulty/dirty drum. Run a wet head cleaner through the player and check the condition of the tapes being used. If the tapes are old they leave deposits on the playing/recording heads and you will persistantly have this problem. If the problem persists, then I suspect the heads may be faulty, or may just need an adjustment.
I'm betting on a dirty mode switch, a rotary switch operated by the gear system. Try spraying some electronic parts cleaner into it, the type that does not leave behind a lubricant (as tuner cleaner does).
It sounds like the audio control head is at fault.
If all prerecorded tapes (movies) play with audio level jumping up and down, is is likely that the audio head is dirty. The audio head in the VCR looks very similar to a head of an old audio cassette player.
First, try to clean the audio head by running a VHS head cleanning tape. The cleanning tape will usually clean the path of all tape mechanisms..
