    Some how my player got broken during the move so I took it apart and discoverd a broken gear that engages the tape to the head, so being the master of cheese wizery that I am, I did what I always do....Glue it back together, after 4 hours of tearing into this thing 4 different times to arange all three interacting gears back together in the perfect order, I fix that problem.Now the tape loads correctly but is not tracking right.The VCR is a sony 4 head w/ auto and manual tracking, so any ideas??? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    if you bubed it wrong the tracking is that screwed up you can only adjust it so far back and forth and if it is out of adjustment that far you are never going to be able to get it back try a few different tapes and if you get the same thing

    Get a new (used)one from a pawn shop, I got a top of the line hi-fi model only a couple years old for $20. they usually come with at least a thirty day return policy. or you could get a dvd and tivo. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
