Question about RCA VR639HF VHS VCR
I have an RCA VR639HF purchased in 1998 or 99 and have tried to troubleshoot the problem I'm having. I only have a basic knowledge of components in a VCR after some googling. The following occurs when a tape is inserted: Tape is engaged in drum and drum is spinning. Tape is spun "backwards" into the supply reel by the capstan/pinch roller, but in most cases (not all however) does not travel around the drum but simply gathers inside the VCR and the VCR then decides to eject the tape. Sometimes it manages to collect the tape up again, and sometimes it does not. In the other cases when the tape does not gather after inserting (manages to continue to the supply reel), the VCR only operates for about 2 seconds and things seem to tighten up (tension seems to increase) although that is observed only by a sound of the motors working harder. Then the tape is ejected. Funny thing is that some tapes get further on in this proces than others. Some are ejected as soon as it's inserted, others are wound around the drum and tension is applied by tensioners and yet others get to the stage listed above. Any suggestions as to the cause of this and possible fix??? Thanks in advance Deedum
