I have just bought a second hand VCR and I tried it before buying and it appeared to work perfectly. When I got home however (only an hour later) and tried it it will now not do anything except accept and eject tapes, ie. will not play, rewind etc. I'm wondering if the Pro-Tect Plus feature is turned on, but I didn't turn it on because I don't have the remote and neither did the previous owner so I am puzzled.

I was having the exact same problems, and I read a post on this website somewhere recommending that I just record a few seconds of video on a blank portion of tape and then the camera should start playing video normally again.
hey!!! i just got my second psp second hand, i was playing it for like 30mins then when i went to play on it the next day it started to play up.
basically when-ever i press start the screen will go black for around 10-30 seconds before appearing back, but then the controls will freeze and i have to press 'home' and when it asks if i wanna quit i select 'no' to get it working again. but sometimes the screen will start randomly switching between the different light settings and just black out for yet another 10-30 seconds,
anything to suggest???? i couldnt stand buying a third one : (
Did you try using teh SV cables supplied or the RF cable?
Easier to use the AV Cables. 100% should work. Connect Video OUT of VCR ro VIDEO IN of TV and AUDIO OUT (L) and (R) of VCR to AUDIO IN (L) & (R) of TV. Select AV or VIDEO on TV using TVs remote. Play a Cassette. should work!!
Does the tape hang out when you eject the cassette?
8 seconds is about the time that the VCR brain allows the mechanism to
run when there is a problem before shuting down. Just guessing
from the model number, but I'd say the unit needs a belt job.
plug your cable connection to a vcr "in" then run a seperate cable cord from the vcr "out" to your television (which should be on channel 3 or 4) depending on your vcr setting and use the vcr to control the channel so when your westinghouse freezes and becomes unresponsive you could still change the channel and so on through your vcr and tv acts like a monitor works for me.
N.B be sure to set the volume and so on before it freezes which could be like a 1min window from turning your tv on
