My Panasonic PV-8661 will load a tape but will not run. It stops immediately after pressing Play, Fast Forward or Rewind. The large gear wheel just rotates back and forth.


There is a possibility of some damage to the mechanism. You will have too look around for plastic parts that are damaged.

Another possibility is the mode switch is playing up. This tells the electronics what position the mechanism is in. Sometimes a spray of Servisol Video 40 on it will cure it. But if it is worn out, then it won't. You can get them, but to fit it in you will need the service manual, as they are very tricky to set up right. For example they are rarely set up in the eject mode!

I have a Panasonic VCR (DMR-ES35V) and when you insert the tape, it does not thread the tape across the video head. The tape runs for a moment and then ejects.


There's either damage in the drive section, or more likely and in some cases "plus" the Mode Switch is set in the wrong position or is faulty. The mode switch tells the electronics what position the VCR mechanism is in. Such as play or fast-forward. If in the wrong place it will carry out other functions - such as eject - in your case.

My Panasonic VHS Player Model PV-V4020 is locked up so I cannot insert a new tape.


This will be some form of physical damage to the carriage mechanism, that holds the tape. Sometimes it's a simple thing like the flap getting stuck. But often it's a broken piece of plastic.

How can I remove a stuck video tape from out of a VCR?


You will have to take the cover off. ( un-plug the AC cord)
Look for the loading motor at the back right side.
Rotate the motor and you will see the tray moving thru its cycle to un-load the tape, it does take quite a few turns, its slow.
Let me know if you run into a problem?

VCR won't push the tape down


The tape load mechanism has a problem mybe a broken gear. If u want to repair it by yourself, removed the tape drive and look for a broken part. You should be able to come up with a part #. Go to: http://www.diyvcrparts.com/cgi-bin/web_store/web_store.cgi Check out your chassis by the model number. or like always call for service. Good luck!
