Is there anything I can do to the tape to prevent my VHS tape from jumping?

Is there anything that I can do to my VHS tapes to stop my V HS tapes from skipping/jumping??
I’ve cleaned all the heads.
All my vcr’s are auto tracking and there are no settings on the vcr nor on the remote to manually manipulate anything like this. I have some unreplaceable vhs home movies(taped years ago) that I want to watch and transfer to dvd-r but they’re skipping or jumping a lot if you know what i mean(bottom to top) .
This same problem occurs in all three of my modern vcrs including my new DVR . I’ve tried fully fast forwarding them then fully rewinding them on all 3 machines..this rarely fixes the situation.

Is there anything that I can do to the VHS tape to stop this from doing this?

Please advise. Any serious help on this matter will be appreciated.

Will the demagnetizer erase my tapes?

I’m a computer tech. Can I clean the tapes myself? Do I use an aircan? thanks again!
Please email me at [email protected] since i cannot email you for further info..thanks!
