I did not have a problem with a projector tv-it was a vcr. I took it apart-cleaned the heads and used compressed air to blow out the dust.

When I put a tape in, it loads, then stops.


It sounds like the machine needs a thoro cleaning especially around the guide pins and tape head. Also make sure that the tape is not being excessively tensioned in the cassette housing. If it happens on more than 1 tape then thoro cleaning of the transport mechanism in the machine is required. You may need to run a cleaning cycle more than once or get it to a repair shop to do it for you. If it happens on all tapes then it is possible that one of the guides has become worn or bent, or the drive mechanism is at fault or the drive belt has become stretched and will need replacing.

VCR is eating tapes


There are different reasons that a VCR could start eating tapes. It could that it just needs a good cleaning or it could have a mechanical problem you will really need to have it checked out by a service center to determine why. If you have small children I would check it for signs of “peanut butter sandwiches. J

Emerson EWD2004 vcr eating vcr tapes


This is caused by mechanical problems in the VCR. Depending on the age and maker of the VCR, the take-up reel in the cassette is driven by a gear, a belt or a rubber wheel. This isn't happening properly in your VCR, so the tape is piling up inside. Given the low cost of replacement combo players (I don't think you can find just a VCR these days), it's not worth having repaired. You can expect to spend $60 to $100 on a repair for this kind of trouble, assuming there are even shops still willing to take the machine in.

Eating my vcr tapes


ok , lets start with MOISTURE where VCR located ,what happen is that moisture can cause the tape to catch on the polished surface of the drum head , some instances will play,but the tape stops stretching it and damage occurs. SECOND check for a defective idler tire that prevent the take up reel from spinning. also check for any drive belts ( look like black rubber bands ) that might be stretched with time ,replace with new ones .hope this info helps

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.
