Question about Philips DVDR3435V/37 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

I found a loose part in the VCR bay I'd like to reinstall. Part #T5B

Part # T5B is involved with allowing the VCR tray to retract and lower in the DVP3150V/37 player. Without it, the tray jambs and shuts off the player. It's located on the right side of the tray mechanism. Help!

I found that part #T5B was on the bottom of the VCR tape tray on the right side of the VCR tape bay opening and was spring activated by inserting the tape to allow the tray to retract into the player mechanism. Without a tape installed, part T5B prevents the tape carriage from retracting.
However, I still couldn't get the whole mechanism timed properly, and gears were skipping teeth, the mechanism was still binding, and shutting the power for the whole player down. Therefore, I removed the rubber drive belt that operated the VCR tray insertion/ retraction process, and disabled the VCR side from operating at all. This allowed the power to remain on and allow the DVD side to work properly.
This worked only for the Phillips DVP3150V/37. I cannot say for certain if other Phillips players are the same.

2011 Honda Ridgeline center console cup holder can't retract. Stuck in the extended position. Won't close. Hits something.


Most often it is just gummed up with soda syrup. spray a little armor all into the mechanism and let it sit for a few minutes, then operate the mechanism. repeat until it works smoothly again, making sure to wipe any excess fluid up. Hope this helps.

Check the weight and see if it has screws in it to move in on the hose line the distance it lacks retracting.

Most of them can be adjusted to proper retracting mode. It may have a couple of screws in it.

Tapes won't play and won't retract when ejecting


This is the most common VCR problem of all time. The piece call the idler tire is worn down and needs replacing. This is the little wheel in the mechanism between the 2 reels that flips back and forth depending on which direction you've told it to go. It has a rubber tire around it to allow some slippage so that the take up reel can go whatever speed it needs to as it accumulates more and more tape on it as it goes through your movie. Sometimes this tire is very difficult to get at so it isn't something you should try to do yourself unless very mechanicly inclined. Replace the rest of the rubber belts while you're at it.
Hope Ya Fix it!
