Question about Mitsubishi HS-U447 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Tape will not play rewind or foward

It happened gradually, now when I press play, rewind or foward, it tries then stops. I thought at first it was the old tapes, but now, it won't play at all? Any suggestions before I have to take to repair shop?

    Tape will not play rewind or foward; the machine tries, there's a slipping / rubbing sound, then the machine stops trying

How do I stop my vcr (GE mod vg4258) rewinding when I want to stop it b4 the beginning of the tape?


Press "play" and then "stop". This will not hurt the player unless its tape transport systems are broken.

Loads tape then stops - won't play rewind fast


Way to go. Usually if you use anisotropic Alcohol with a few Q-tips works well I've found.
Try cleaning the other tap path items like the capstan that the pinch roller get's pushed up to also with this Alcohol. The cleaner the better the tape goes through. Much better picture.

Video tapes only paly for about 2 seconds then stops


The heads need cleaning and/or the tapes are old and dirtying up the playing heads.
Run a wet tape head cleaner through an see if this improves.

VHS tape was playing . After stoping does not play. Other tape will play


The idler wheel (that only drives the tape in play or scan modes) is slipping too much (very common problem). Try verify this by putting the tape in play then immediately press the fast fwd or rewind buttons to scan the tape. On older machines, the idlers used rubber friction tires - on newer ones, a clutch. Either replace the tire or increase the spring tension on the clutch.
Hope Ya Fix It.

Loud noise on rewind


You may have an idler gear wheel which has been damaged- perhaps broken/worn gear teeth or something afoul in it's drive mechanisms. Check this idler which sits down in between the supply and take-up spindles. You should be able to see this with no tape loaded. This idler should also move freely from supply to takeup- if it is sticky in movement this could be the problem. If your idler is broken, you may be able to replace it. Check with a service center- or a parts supplier. MCM electronics is one such supplier- there are others.
