Question about RCA T13208 13 in. TV/VCR Combo
I think these combos were the wort thing, They used some of the cheapest VCRs that had the most problems in these things. Most are mono 2 head that are just built to bairly function new. Most do have 1 belt and that 1 belts is in the back and has such a load on it that it can bairly drive the mechanisim new to load and unload the unit. Its hard to say what could be the problem because they are so packed in there with the VCR unit cuasing heat and the tv causing heat stuff in them brak down even faster. Good luck taking it apart, they are a pain to work on. Once you get the back off of the tv, the tv wants to almost fold in half. You almost need to people, one to hold the tv up and one to remove the vcr unit. The case is like the frame of the unit and it all holds itself together. Before you take it apart, try and turn the unit upside down and shake it. I know that sounds like a pain but there could be somthing in it jamming the mechanism. Try some easy stuff firt.

Theres no reset as I know but I only had a couple of these types of RCA and both had tv problems.. In todays VCR's there are no belts to replace or go bad. Mostly all nylon gears and plasic chassis. Most of the faults that lie with todays VCR's are bad Capstan motors ,defective tape loading carriages, defective mode switchs or sometimes even bad cylinder motors. If any of the gears break or cracks it will completely throw the unis mechaism out of alighnment and you will need to know from the manual where to set every gear ,lever and switch or it will never work.. Thats why most VCR;'s today are throwaway as you have to buy a service manual spoend time finding out why the mechanism dosent work and then buy the parts to correct the fualt. Good Luck to ya and heres a # you can call if you do decide to take the unit in for service by an RCA guy.. https://www.rca.com/secure/service/contactrca/1,,,00.html
