My sanyo vcr was working great until one day i put a movie in it and it played for about 30 seconds and shut itself off. Whats wrong?

VCR's shut themselves down when they encounter a problem. This is to prevent damage. In your case the mechanism might have jamned as it was trying to play the tape. The only solution is to look inside to see if the tape got tangled or damaged. Check also plastic parts for signs of damage too. Another cause is the mode switch. This tells the electronics what position the mechanism is in. If that goes wrong the VCR electronics will get confused and shut down the VCR. Cleaning the mode switch with Servisol can sometimes correct it, but sometimes it has to be replaced.

This could be caused by one of a number of things, but it could be down to the carriage (the thing the cassette fits into being damaged. Another likely cause is the mode switch. Again this could be caused by damage in the mechanism, throwing out the timing. You see the mode switch tells the electronics what position the mechanism is in. Any damage can throw out the timing. But mode switches themselves can go faulty. Sometimes dirt gets in them, which can be cleaned out by Servisol Video 40. Restoring operation. But damage will throw the mode switch out so re-aliment needs to be done. I think your deck might use the K-Deck mechanism. If it does you can find information on it, plus how to set up the mode switch correctly by searching Google for "Panasonic K-Deck".
Mode switches for K-Decks can be found on Curry's Partmaster site if you need a new one.

Sanyo vcr VHR-9433

Your end of tape sensor is not working. Notice the beginning and end of each tape is clear? That is to allow IR (infared light) which you cannot see with out special stuff, into the area near the left and right of the cassette. Usually they look like a tiny light bulb wit a left and right side. Radio SHack carrys IR detectors cheap.

Sanyo VCR

get a 2 A/V cords (yellow, white, and red plugs). Plug between the Satellites "video out" jacks and the VCR's "input" jacks. Connect the second cords between the VCR's "video out" jacks and the TV's "video in" jacks. Make sure the VCR is set to the input that you plugged the satellite cords into and make sure the TV is set to the input that you plugged the VCR's cords into.
And then you're done. To record, set satellite to channel desired, set VCR to record on the video input (instead of a channel number) and you're good to go.

Remote control problems

I would love to say we can help, but the truth is, you remote needs to be replaced. One of the advantages to have the remote is that you wear out the remote, not the controls on the tv. And replacing a remote is much cheaper. You have done all you can to save this remote. You will need to replace it.

Sanyo VHR-9440 eating tape

Most likely it hasn't been used enough. You see the rubber parts that drive the tape get dry and can develope small hairline cracks. It can be fixed. But it would be a lot cheaper to just get a newer machine. You could also try a WET TAPE cleaner-ASOP makes a good one-radio shack still carries it. It cleans the entire path of the tape (all the rubber rollers and metal parts that the tape comes into contact with). When it is done you may have to run it again. Just wait 20 min after you are done before testing a tape in it (stuff needs to dry inside). If that don't work-buy a new one- they're cheap enough this days.

VHS Tape on Sanyo Doesn't play on other VCR's

the heads on the sanyo vcr may slightly be out of alignment from years of use.when playing a recorded tape from this vcr to another, the other vcr's alignment maybe right on track thus causing the poor can possibly try cleaning the heads with a head cleaner or a high grade blank tape,but i don't think this will solve the problem. but you can try.
good luck
p.s also try higher quality tapes to record on.

Will only display on ch 3

You will need to take the original remoter and go into the menu, find the channel set up and reprogram the VCR for the channels, as when you lost power the channels also went out because of the memory chips need the power to hold the data.
