CHeck the timer switch. It looks like a round, flat plastic wheel with 4-5 small tabs (Contacts) sticking out. Sometimes they get dirty and won't respond to inputs.

VCR won't record, just ejects tape

You have not mentioned the make and model number of the vcr. Any way the problem is due to end sensor or related circuit. End sensors are photo diods which you can check the shorting with a multy meter.

VCR Stops on me

Hello Ro Power,


This might be due to the tape sensor malfunctioning. You will need a schematic, and multimeter, and a LED power meter to work on this problem. When the tape loads it causes an LED sensor to become blocked and then the sensor tells the control chip that a tape is present and the the controll chip allows the tape to continue playing, if the sensor does not work the signal never gets to the control chips and since other events happend and triggered the control chip the control chip looks at this as an error and the stops the tape , some units even eject the tape.


If you do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest that you take the VCR to a qualified shop and have them repair it.


I hope this helps,

Thank You,

Freeing a cassette stuck in the vcr player with no power light on

This can be due to many faults and need a full check up but I can fill up with few tips.
1. If the cassette is loaded and there is no power then the loading sectionmust be manually removed and the turned to push out the forward loading and eject the tape..
2. use of a 12 volt DC on the loading motor can assist to push out the cassette, make sure the motor connection is removed from the circuit so as not to damage the loading IC.

3. Some cases the capstan also is the loading motor and you can manually turn to release.

4. sometimes a jammed link , broken gear can be the cause and so it must be set free mechanically.

My child got the video stuck i got it out but it wont go back in and play and pwr in red is showing can u help please

This can be due to many faults and need a full check up but I can fill up with few tips.
1. If the cassette does not loads ,then the loading section can be faulty as the load motor or the load motor drive can be faulty.
2. If the cassette in take up tray was removed this would create a wrond setting and so the MODE detect will work differently - check these which are opto devices or proximity sensors/magnetic type.
3. Check for fault in the capstan drive or the SERVO section as it will not power the set but trips off if there is a short.
4. Defective HALL IC can shut the switching and so the servo will shut down the processor.
5. Fault in the power section to deliver the correct voltage to the circuits/loading servo to take up.
6. Finally if the loading is not to the MODE switch point or failure of mode can make the loading to trip as it will not complete the load to the desired point.

I have a panasonic vcr. Model # pv-v4022

There is an SMPS unit that powers the set. You could have a failed driverr in this section. check out the input side for short in capacitors, bridge rectifier,SM driver or a mains protector. It will easy to identify by having a continuity tester for identifying the short. replace with the same type. good luck

ILink not working. Computer does not recognize the deck. What intenal component(s) is faulty?

i-link ic might have blown due to back voltage spikes to it from computer through the cable. check with a service centre and replace the ic if faulty. otherwise i link cable or connector may be faulty. be in mind that never connect or disconnect i link cable while mechine is connected to power ( even in OFF condition also).

Same problem with my HR-3911U after a power spike. Cracked open the box and as I suspected the fuse had blown. Removed fuse, plugged in and tested across connectors, 115v ac good reading. Replaced fuse (1.25a 250v) plugged in and nothing. The deck electronics had fried. Keeping for spare parts such as head and transport mech.

Time to get a new one and a better surge protector. My UPS logs show a 1200+v spike the day it died. We had storms all around us and thunder in the distance, but nothing close by and no rain, but the spike still made it to our inadequate surge protector.

I've read a lot of forums where other JVC owners have experienced the same problem. It appears to be inherent to these JVC Vcrs.

Vcr problem

this usually indicates an error condition- the logic is sensing an abnormal condition. Suggest taking the top cover off the VCR, and load the tape, then activate play. Does tape begin to spill out in the mechanisms, especially towards the right side of the tape? If so, then the take up spindle isn't being engaged to take up the tape. This at least was, a common problem with VCRs, especially older ones ('80s era) which used a rubber drive wheel. This rubber "tire" like drive would become slick & hard, and would cause a no-takeup condition, spiling tape out. There was a sensor which told the logic circuit if the takeup wheel was indeed turning, and if not, the VCR would be taken into a stop or shutoff mode. This sensing would prevent large amounts of tape spillage and the resultant damage such would do. Another possible cause is the tape isn't being loaded properly. This is generally due to a defect in the carriage mechanism (the assembly which holds the tape). Often, these mechanisms were gear driven. Timing on these gears is often critical, and being off by just one tooth would cause an error.
