Question about Samsung SV5000W VHS VCR
I had a tracking problem for a while - bought a head cleaning device which seemed to solve that. Now my tapes continually get stuck in the machine. I have tried playing the cleaning video again but it won't play either in play mode or record mode. Please help!
Yo guys for the most part some good answers. the first place to check would be the mode select switch. easy fix (if you know what you are doing) then new belts and a good clean/lube repair should not exceed $90.00 usd.

We have 4 of the decks. they will often fail to unload panasonic and maxell tapes, i think its due to the design of the reel bases. sony tapes always work fine, they are flat where the others have a groove.

Most likely problem is the gears/arms on the side of the cassette housing. The gears connect to the arms with a circular spring, but the tabs on the arms and gears are plastic. After many hours of operation, the tabs break and the spring no longer provides the connection between the gears and arms. Solution is rebuild of the cassette housing assembly, involving replacement of the arms, gears and springs. Typical cost is about 200.00 (parts and labor.)

If tapes are getting stuck / enmeshed inside the machine, itis 90% probability) a mechanical problem. Change the Belts, clean all rollers, idlers, and braking pads. I would suggest that you also replace the Capstan Pinch Roller.

If your tapes are getting stuck, then most likly it is not a cleaning issue, but a mechanical problem. It would be something in the take up supply reel mechanism. Like a bad clutch, take-up gear or idler, and /or a bad or broken belt.

Did you also clean the rollers and other spindles where the tape also runs? It is not only the heads that will get 'sticky' & grab the tape.
