The tape load mechanism has a problem mybe a broken gear. If u want to repair it by yourself, removed the tape drive and look for a broken part. You should be able to come up with a part #. Go to: http://www.diyvcrparts.com/cgi-bin/web_store/web_store.cgi Check out your chassis by the model number. or like always call for service. Good luck!

Panasonic 13" TV VCR Combo Unit White PV-C1332W put tape in and plays sound but just static shows on all movies?


You need to clean the video head. With these types of sets it's best to use a tape cleaning cassette. I should get a Scotch Head Cleaner Plus tape currently on sale on Amazon for around 4 pounds.

I put a tape in and I hear a loud clicking noise and the VCR doesn't play the tape and turns itself off after 8-10 seconds.


first, try another tape. if it does the same thing the vcr is out of alignment. many times a broken lever inside the vhs tape can cause the vcr to shut down.

The cassette is stuck...


the tape is trapped in the mechanisms, you have to strip the VCR down to get the tape out

How can I remove a stuck video tape from out of a VCR?


You will have to take the cover off. ( un-plug the AC cord)
Look for the loading motor at the back right side.
Rotate the motor and you will see the tray moving thru its cycle to un-load the tape, it does take quite a few turns, its slow.
Let me know if you run into a problem?

Machine not accepting tapes


Just a thought : check if the head isn't blocked ! It should rotate freely (without any friction). I had more or less the same phenomenon (my VCR wouldn't accept any tapes and nothing was activated if I "pushed " a tape in). The reason was here that the VCR wasn't used for a long time (a few months), but it was plugged in all the time (heated up the interior). As a result the head was a-kind-of-blocked. Nothing serious, since I rotated the head manually my VCR works fine.
