Question about Mitsubishi HS-U447 VHS VCR

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.

I have a multitrack cassette recorder MCR-4 made by AMR. In fast foward or rewind it only runs for a few secounds and stops. It does this each time you press the direction button. The tape does stay...


Hi the most common problem i have found here is that although the tapes look OK, they are very tight in case to go forward/back. Banging on the side of the cassette fairly hard on a flat surface a few times, both sides, quite often get rids of it. If that doesnt work, then will need a service on machine. Also try a new cassette..

Best of luck

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.

Erasing recorded tapes


While holding the 'Erase' button down, press the 'Rewind' or "Fast Forward' button. It will erase the tape while it rewinds or fast forwards.

Cassettes not rewinding


The heads could also just need a good cleaning, either professionally or using a head cleaner dv tape. It's important to remember to always use the same manufacturer dv tape all the time. Evidently, Sony and Panasonic do not mix well, and the lubricants from those two tapes combined will gum up the works. If you use Sony dv's, always use a Sony head cleaner and vice versa. Cold can also cause those lubricants to gum up. Sometimes simply fast forwarding will loosen things up.

Will not play back


Usually if there is no impact injury involved or nagging intermittent past problems, you probably have a head cleaning issue. Try a dry type (reccomended) cleaning tape. Should be able to purchase at Best Buy or similar store. Good luck, magic seadog
