My RCA vcr makes noise when I fastforward or rewind

Whenever I had the problem with the "noisy spindles", I just find an old movie, damaged tape,etc but with a good [chassie] body. sometimes the spindles have too much leayway and flip-flop around.It may take more then one 'body' change, but it stops the noise when you find the right size.

Problem ejecting tapes getting stuck

The take up is not rewinding the tape all the way back into the shell. Check the idler, it's either worn or if it's plastic it is warped from the heat.

I was wondering if you tryed unplugging vcr for an hour then
plugging it back up. sometimes this resits it and it will work fine.
the tape might eject itself out or eject button might work.

Loud noise on rewind

You may have an idler gear wheel which has been damaged- perhaps broken/worn gear teeth or something afoul in it's drive mechanisms. Check this idler which sits down in between the supply and take-up spindles. You should be able to see this with no tape loaded. This idler should also move freely from supply to takeup- if it is sticky in movement this could be the problem. If your idler is broken, you may be able to replace it. Check with a service center- or a parts supplier. MCM electronics is one such supplier- there are others.

Video tape gets eaten on rewind

Does the machine play tapes well? Clear steady picture and all? No tracking bars? wavering sound? Tape chewing is generally a problem with a bad Capstan Pinch Roller, Associated symptoms are as above. Please do recheck or confirm if any of the above problems are also present.

It could be that there is a separate motor for the rewind function, and it may be in need of replacement. Also you should check the belts for stretching/wear, as they have a direct impact on the speed. Also, most new VCRs have a function that the tape rewind slows considerably when it senses that its close to the beginning of the tape. Its very possibly that your VCR has a defect in that sensing mechanism. Good luck
