Question about JVC HR-VP650 VHS VCR
I have a JVC HR-XVC26U DVD/VCR combo. It's just under two years old. the DVD is fine. The VCR side will play and fast forward; but when you go to rewind, it eats the tape. I've opened the rig up; it seems that the VCR 'send' reel side has some kind of tension failure when the tape slows down at the end of the rewind sequence. I've cleaned capstans, heads and sensors. Another symptom: the digital time counter is inconsistent or not working at all during rewind. Any help??? Thanks in Advance
With regard to the tape being eaten, quite often it is a cassette problem. The two winding reels run on plastic bases which often becomes very dry and the two reels do not run smoothly. Remove the outer casing and take the two tape reels and the tape out. Then apply a small amount of powdered graphite to the rubbing surfaces of the bottom casing. Reinstall the two reels, making sure to put the tapes in the correct positions around the tape posts, and then replace the outer casing. This often resolves the problem.

Or the braking/tension mechanism is defective. Or the rewind clutch is defective.
