Hi Oshaman. I have dealt with many VCR's and would like to ask you a few questions before diagnostics. How exactly did you get the tape out of the machine ? There are several tape threading gears involved, and if you accidentally made one of them skip a few teeth while forcing the tape deck up the "position" switch will send erroneus signals to the tape threading position switch/ controller. Was the tape rolled around the capstan/pinch roller ? Did you have to force the tape loading tray up to extract the tape ? Feel free to email me. pemere@optonline.net. Happy Holidays.

Error 2 on Front Panel


I'm not sure if this is a solution, but it cleared up the problem for me. It turned out there was a loose paper label for the cassette that got stuck inside the VCR with the cassette.

I had to take off the top of the VCR by removing the three screws. I then removed the jammed loose paper and then was able to get the cassette out. The flashing number 2 (whatever that means) went away. The machine seems to be working fine now.

Tape stuck


Your takeup spool isn't moving.  Before tearing into it further try putting the cover back on the deck and power cycling it.  Hit REW and then try ejecting the tape.  If this works, you'll get the tape back but it's likely the deck is dying.

 

If not, you need to be very careful to get the tape out:  You may be able to turn the wheel that moves the tape basket to gently ease it out;  otherwise, there are screws on the top of the tape basket.  Remove them and gently lift the tape out while carefully unthreading the tape from the tape guides around the head.  There'll be two feet of exposed tape--pretend it's glass, it's delicate!

 

Now the tape is out and you need to thread it back in the cassette.  This needs patience, but here goes:

 

On the front of the cassette, there's a door to protect the tape.  Feel the right hand side of the cassette for a small button;  hold it down to open the door and keep it open

 

With the other hand (or with three hands! :) ) put your hand under the right-hand tape reel under the cassette.  Carefully turn it clockwise.  It will make clicking noises, but it should ease the tape back into the shell.

 

Beyond that, the cause of the original malfunction will be a bad reel motor, which is probably not fixable, or a bad belt, which you may be able to locate through mcminone.com.  You'll have to unscrew the bottom cover to investigate further.

Putting main deck line cover back on inside vcr


this sounds like the carriage tray, it's the metal plate that the vcr slides in and out. It should have a door on the front side and it may have at least 2 screws and sometimes four. The only problem is aligning up the tray to be exact. in the power on mode the vcr tray should be pushed outward like the tape is sticking partly out of set.

VCR kicks out cassettes


Sounds as if something got bent in the loading mechanism when you freed the stuck tape. Careful examination of the loading operation with the cover off may reveal the problem, but you may require a service shop, as there are hazardous voltages present inside, even when switched off.

Flashing "3" on VR330 front panel


A possible bad sensor, bad mode switch, mechanism gear timing off, or perhaps a missing or incorrect voltage from the power supply may cause this problem. I don't know what the "3" indicates, this may be an error code which would help a technician with the proper literature diagnose. Unfortunately, most modern electronics, VCRs, TVs and such are of the disposeable variety. Costs of repair, if you can even find a service center, are usually not economical. If you by chance have some technical savvy, you might be able to trace the problem down.
