Aligning drive eject and idle cogs in VCR

The nylon gears have handy timing marks,however,I have no manual,and a certain starting point for the tape cradle is crucial,and possibly the position of other moving reverse actuators.Trial and error with 6 to 7 multi-toothed cogs has had me give up after hundreds of attempts short of purchasing a manual{more expensive than the VCR.Converting my 1965 VW beetle to water-cooled engine was easier.Its an older panasonic NV-F65 HQ

You do realize that you can purchase a new VCR from Walmart for less than $20. That is less than most places charge for the manual. I'm going to suggest a new VCR, versus the headache and hassle of fixing this one.

    Yeah, I would definitely keep the Beetle, they're not quite the dime a dozen the VCR is. Used to be able to find the old Beetles all the time, made a few buggys out of them, but you don't see them much anymore, getting hard to find.

The tape will not eject-- seems to be binding--I cut the tape and it didn't help


If you cut the tape and freed all particles that usually would release the cassette, but you also mentioned it was binding which means there is a loading basket problem and is pulling on the one side of the basket, this indicates a bad gear linkage and the one cog wheel is likely bad throwing the load and eject sequence right out of sync. To fix this! will require parts and the labor to re-time the gears and cost factor will probably higher than what you paid for the vcr.

CANT PUT IN TAPES


I think you will find that the VCR has gone out of sequence. The VCR thinks it is in a loaded state and not in the ejected state of play. The cause of it could be complex or simple. However the most likely cause is a faulty mode switch. It will need to be replaced and that is not often easy. The mode switch will have to be in a certain position, to ensure the correct sequence again. VCR's have different set up positions. Some for example have to be set up as if the tape was loaded up. You will need a service manual for this for certain. This is due to the need to get various parts in the right order. Otherwise you will never get it to operate in the right way.
I should point out though mode switches do wear out, it may not be the sole cause, as all you need is one broken cog or broken part and the whole mechanism will go out of sequence.
There is also the microproccessor chip that works out what mode the VCR is in, from the signals it gets from the mode switch. It is rare for these to go, but they can go wrong.
I would like to stress again, without the service manual you haven't a hope of setting the VCR up.

Older model has 'frozen up'. Didn't record. Can't


the heads in the vcr are shot.....the heads which allow the tape to move forward or backward have gears attached to the bottom of them...sounds like the gears or cog wheels have damaged teeth which would cause the vcr to lock up...replace the gears and it will work..of course, its less expensive to buy a newer model.......my opinion....

Sanyo vcr player vwm 900, tape won't COME OUT.


This needs a little bit of care but essentially you will need to unplug the power from the VCR then do the following:

Remove the top cover
Then with the front of the VCR facing you look to see if any of the tape is wound around a large metallic silver drum, that is tilted upward and is not flat, at the rear of the tape casing. If so then it means that it has wound around the drum and you will need to retrieve the tape to allow the eject mechanism to work. Do not touch the shiny polished part of the drum. To get the tape in usually means that you have to locate a plastic or metal cog wheel, usually on the right side of the VCR that you can turn with your finger. This makes the VCR motor move. Also there is one that works the tape eject mechanism. If you can find the one to wind in the tape before working on the one for the tape eject than you stand a chance of rescuing the tape, if not then it will get some damage. Don’t worry about turning the cog wheels with your finger as you can do very little harm to the VCR with no tools involved and no power on. Moving the cogs this way will only cause very small movements with the tape motor and eject so you will need to be a little patient and you will soon see what is happening. Once remove run a cleaning tape through the VCR before you use it again. With the limited space available her it is difficult to give you much more info.

How to time loading arm cogs on VCR?


Most Panasonic VCR use a mechanisms with a letter. For example the NV-HS900 uses a K Deck. What you need to do is type the model number into google and search for which deck it uses. Then with luck you might also find the instructions for setting the deck up correctly. I got the K-Deck one free.

The service manual should have a procedure for aligning the gearing, BUT a lot of times they don't. Almost always, you can figure it out as they put little tiny arrows or marks molded into the gears showing which teeth line up. This usually is done in in the eject position.
If you succeed here, you can regard yourself as "mechanically inclined".
Hope Ya Fix It.
