You may have a difficult time repairing the michine.You have to find the replacement rubber band assembly ( could be 4 to 8 bands ) from the original or subsitute company and replace ALL of them. don't replace one band to have to replace the others later on.
hope for the best

I have a Mitsubishi HSU48. The tape is stuck in the VCR. I cannot get it out. Do you have any suggestions


I had this problem with this specific machine. These answers have all been general to any VCR. The Mitsubishi HS-U448 has its motor underneath the machine. You don't have to remove the top cover at all. Just remove the bottom plate and spin the motor (the correct direction) to completely eject the tape.

Tape comes out of cassette when ejected.


Your VCR is "eating" tapes, this is a common problem. First, wind the tape up by sticking a penny or other rounded object into the white "gears" on the back of the tape (with the tape hatch open by holding down the small button on the left side of the tape) and turn either clockwise or counterclockwise. Then check inside the VCR for moisture and remove any and all moisture with a clean rag. Moisture can cause the tape to stick to the VCR's internal components.

Best of luck to you.

VCR eats tape when rewinding


A couple of possibilities: 1. Braking problems: When VCR goes from FFWD, REW, Play to stop, there are a pair of "brake pads" engaged to stop the reels, and prevent tape spillage out into the machine. These pads, often rubber like, are on levers which contact one side of each reel. If you take the cover off the VCR, and look down where the tape is loaded, you will like see these brake assemblies. If the rubber pad is missing, or lever pivot points gummied up, then this is your issue. 2. Take up reel isn't being engaged to take up the tape on tape eject. When a tape is loaded into the machine, tape is pulled from the cartridge and threaded into play ready position. When eject mode is engaged, the tape must be pulled back into the cartridge, or you will have tape hanging out the front end of the cartridge, and may get caught on the VCR internals, or at least be mangled by the cartridge door. The often issue here is likely the idler assembly pivot point is sticky. This idler pivots, moving from the take-up reel (right reel) to the supply reel reel (left one), depending on what mode is selected. FFWD & play to the right, left for REW. If this idler is gummed up at it's pivot point, movement will be sluggish at best, and might not be engaging the right reel quickly enough to pull tape in before tape eject. This idler is sitting right between the reels down where the tape sits. A little light oil on the pivot point may be enough to loosen it up. Otherwise it might need to be removed and the old grease removed, and a drop or two of light oil applied.

Something might've been broken in the forced tape removal. VCR tape carriage (the cassette unit) assemblies are rather delicate, easily broken, in contrast to the units in early VCRs (from the '80s or early '90s). Use of force in tape removal... can break stuff, or perhaps get the gear timing fouled up. Take the top cover off, look for broken pieces of this assembly. If this assembly has gears on the right side, this obviously means it is gear driven. Timing is set by lining up marks on the gears, in most cases. Setting this might be tricky- service literature will tell you how to set this, and in what mode the marks line up.
