Question about Mitsubishi HS-U560 VHS VCR
I had a worn capstan/drive belt on my HS-U560 VCR and replaced it. Thinking all was fixed I reassembled the mechanism and replaced the cover. Big mistake! When I loaded a tape, I was unaware that the arm that the cleaning pad uses to clean the heads every time you load a tape was stuck in the clean postion. It kept the tape loading mechanism from completely loading the tape around the heads although the motor was trying to force the operation. It eventually broke a gear and now the unit is unable to load a tape. I took it to a video repair shop and they told me that the part was no longer available. Does anyone out there have an old unit that still has a functional mechanism. Even if the unit is dead, it would still help. All I need is a 'working' VCR mechanism.
I'm not sure what part you ned, but parts are still available from generic suppliers although not from Mitsubishi. Where are you located?

Did you ever get your part discussed in this old post? If you want to send it to me, I may be able to make a part for it. I've made machine parts by hand successfully before. Although it would probably be easier to repair the part that you have. After seeing it, I may decide I don't want to attempt it. Or you could send photos of the broken part and it's location, and I might be able to give you instructions on how I would do it. I just replaced the belts on my folks HS-U560 so have some familiarity.
