Re: rewinding a tape

Theres a rewind ,fastforward clutch inside the tape mechanism thats worn, the brake for the supply reel in not releasing completely, or theres hair -dirt- or gunk under the supply reel, or the drive belt needs to be replaced. Now If this wasent part of a tv set combo I would say take it apart and have a peak at some of the things I mentioned. BUT theres extremly HI VOLTAGE inside this puppy and if you dont know the saftey issues related to this , I would highly recommend getting a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck

I have PANASONIC TV \ VHS the vhs plays for about 2min then stops.How can I fix it? PLEASE

The tape player has bad belts or a bad rubber drive wheel that drives it in play---no magic here--someone has to open and replace bad parts in the transport mechanism--which moves the tape.

If you can get a tape in hit fast forward and see if that works--sometimes if not used for a long time ff and then rewind a few times will bring it back to life for a short time.

My EWC1394 records programs, but when I rewind th tape, it shuts off. This happens several times before it starts to rewind the tape.

this is caused by the tape winding too tightly so when it rewinds it gets tension and thinks it is at the end of tape ,so stops.

It pays to FF and REW several times on new or other peoples tapes to have the tape acclimatised to the tension on your machine. It may also need to be serviced if it is doing it to tapes you have previously FF to the end and rewound. Older tapes stretch a little more than new tapes so are more forgiving.

Blue screen when playing tape

The tape head needs cleaning. Best to use the type that you put a drop or two of alcohol on. Find a cleaning tape that works best for you, or have a TV shop do it for you. The "Blue Screen" is what the TV defaults to when the signal is not strong enough, either through the tv tuner, or the tape head signal.
If this is helpful... click "FixYa" below. Thanks!

VHS tape will not eject

Ida oh won"t be you that removes the tape!
 It should be the Technician you offer $25 to do it for you. It can usually be done with the right gear and often without major damage to the tape itself particularly if what is on it is very important to you!
At the same time you may learn if the repair is worth it.

good luck

Symphonic sc1304, vcr problem

Pulley belt stretched, replace. Remove the back cover to tv, slide the chassis out, remove speaker connector, and other ones to allow the chassis to be out away from cabinet to take the metal cover off surrouding the vcr unit. Usually a couple of screws that hold the whole vcr unit in, remove these, lift the unit from the chassis carefully and check the belt as it is stretched and not making tight grip on the white pulleys that perform the mechanical functions of the VCR. When putting back together, and replaced the belt be sure to lift the vcr door inward before sliding the chassis back into cabinet so the door latch will open and close properly, otherwise you put a tape in and the door won't open back up.

VCR plays for a few seconds and rewinds. Now, the VCR plays tape in fast forward mode

Most everyone I know had problems with the tv/vcr combo including myself. I'll never buy one again. I'm sorry you are having the same problem.

Toshiba MV13P2

since it fast forwards, and rewinds, my first guess (that the take-up mechanism is worn, which also causes the machine to "eat tapes" after it stops) not likely..... the other common problem is misaligned sensors (especially if you recently had a tape jam in it, or found a foreign object, like a pen, or piece of candy in it...... another possibility is that if it's with a particular tape, you may have visible gaps in the coating on the tape, which would trigger the sensors, basically saying "STOP.... END OF TAPE..." there are other sensors and sensing conditions that could cause the same problem....... have the mechanism and electronics looked at by an expert.......
