The picture on my vcr keeps going off or shows wavy lines when words come on screen why is this please?


Poor tracking possibly caused by a dirty video heads. I would use a head cleaning tape. Then adjust the tracking controls for best picture.

Where is the tracking on this VCR toshiba w403?


On this unit there is no manual tracking button - it's done automatically by a special circuit that uses the special signal from the tracks themselves. If the tracking is bad then the heads are dirty and they don't pick that special signal.
Clean them with a special cleaning tape. If you can't source one the unit will have to be dismantled and the 4 heads will have to be manually cleaned with a q-tip moist with alcohol.

I can't correct the tracking on my philips vcr.


your tracking may not be a tracking problem it could be dirty heads open the vcr and use a piece of clean notebook paper and slightly press against the head(round cylinder) while manually turning the head it will pull the dirt off the head and clean it do not use any cleaner as it causes film on the head, other solution is your auto tracking is off and can be adjusted by slightly turning the arms that hold the tape around the head while it is playing and watch the picture till it is clear then stop

Hi,
This problem is certainly dirty or worn video heads, most likely just dirty. You could try cleaning with a tape head cleaner (wet type) If this doesn't work, contact me again, and I'll email you detailed instructions for cleaning.

Kind Regards....Dave

No picture


This type of problem may be caused by a dirty video head, people some time try to adjust tracking to take care of this problem this is a mistake. Now to clear up this issue first you put the tracking control mid way in its setting, then you clean the heads of the VCR you can use a head cleaning tape (follow the instructions on the cleaning tape box)for this or if you have experience you use a chamois swab type cleaner (follow the instructions on the package of swabs and liquid cleaner). one the heads are cleaned you acn then try to adjust track to obtain the best picture. If you can not you may have video head problems or a problem in the drum motor (servo) mechanism. In which case I advise taking the unit to a TV repair shop.

Flashing


One possibility is the tracking/audio head is dirty. Remove top cover of VCR, this head sits just to the right of the rotating video head. Use a cotton swab moistened with rubbing alcohol, or other video head cleaner and clean this head, especially the lower edge, as the tracking info is recorded along the lower edge of the tape (if memory serves). Another possibility is a problem with tape travel past this head. If the tape is lifting or moving up or down, even slightly as it passes this head, tracking will be lost, hence your blue screen & bad audio. This could be observed by playing a tape with the VCR cover off.
