Philips DVD750VR Err 3 Message when trying to play VCR tape.

When I put in a vcr take into my dvd/vcr combo, it ejects the tape, displays the ERR 3 message and turns the power off. I tried putting in a head cleaner and it ate the tape. I'm affraid my 4 heads are bad. Thoughts?

It sounds like the sensor to tell the microcontroller that the tape is moving is not working. If that is so, the VCR would probably do the same thing in FF or Rewind. If you end up taking this unit into a repair shop, have them check the DVD's software version (it should be 1.250) If below that number, have them upgrade that as well. You can check the version yourself by pressing 1,2,3,4 and then "display" on the remote while the unit is on and no disc in DVD. After noting the version, just hit "power" on the remote to exit this mode.

SOURCE: DVD player does not read discs anymore

With some models of DVD player I know you can download a firmware update on your PC, load it to the DVD player and it wil fix some issues.
Finding those sites for download may be difficult though.

SOURCE: ewd2202 dvd/vcr combo when i put a vcr tape i can

the video heads are probably dirty.there is a steel drum 1/2 inch thick that you can see if you look thru the front lid where the tape loads.the video heads are little black spec looking things on the bottom of the drum.the easiest way to clean the drum for a novice is to put isopropyl alcohol on a piece of 2 inch square paper.hold the paper very lightly against the drum with your right index finger.turn the drum from the top,anti clockwise.you will see some black stuff on the paper.do the same with a piece of dry paper.otherwise the tape will stick to the drum if still wet.DO NOT use a q tip,as it will get caught in the heads and break them.
sometimes,just running a new blank tape for 15minutes will dislodge the particles and the picture will re appear.if you have recently rented a movie,and saw lines running across the screen,and noise from inside the machine,it is damaged tape going across the heads and drum and it can wipe out the picture just like that.run a blank tape first and then clean the drum if you have to.

My VHS tape will not eject from the VCR. I have a message flashing stating ERR. What can I do to eject the tape?


Hello
The mechanism of your VCR has jammed with video casette tape. If tape ribbon has got twisted around the drum motor head, or the belt that connected to eject [capstan] motor has elongated, this type of fault will occur. Either it will play, rewind, fast forward of eject. Just replace the belts first. In most VCRs the user can replace the belt from underside. Let the tape is there, if it is in, replace all the belts. Belts can be bought from most of the electronic spare part shops at your town. It will come as kit type, each model has its own belt kit, and you have to give them the exact model number of your VCR. Just open the cover of the VCR, and look for tape ribbon twist if any. If it is there, remove it carefully without making damage to any other internal parts, especially to video head. If necessary, cut the tape film. If tape twist is only the problem, it will be rectifed as this twist has been removed. If this also doesn't help you, replace all the belts. OK.

You're describing what could be a loose or worn loading belt problem, most of the vcr mechanisms used in these combos use one to load the tape and thread it for it to play or record, that is why you have to keep puhing the tape untill the machine accepts the tape and you have to keep pressing play untill it starts the play function.

Vcr/dvd combo, vcr no longer will play tape, when I press play, after a few seconds will eject tape.


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the eject mechanism and the drive motor connected with the tape mechanism. Try and align the drive motor. Also check the push-pull arm of the tape mechanism and make sure that the springs connected with the mechanism are fine.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

VCR Tape playing problem


The mean time between failure for the rubber parts in a VCR is about the same as the rubber parts on your car - about 5 to 7 years. You are due for a belt job.
