Why do my vcr eat taps


Every VCR has a transport mechanism that moves the tape-when eject is hit it reverses and winds the tape back into the cassette and closes the door on the tape BEFORE the tape exits the unit.

It is not doing that so the tape gets mangled--bad belts, bad rubber drive wheel etc---all happen with age even if unit is not used much.

Parts for these are getting hard to find--if any questions post a comment here.

Power goes off when a cassette is inserted. Tried cleaning heads but it won't even run that. When power is turned back on the cassette is immediately ejected.


Good day!!!

Most common problems
  • VCR refuses to FF or REW and shuts off.
  • VCR shuts off entering PLAY or REC or at random during PLAY or REC.
  • VCR eats tapes.
  • VCR doesn't accept tapes or ejects them without cause.
  • Sound is wavery, fluctuating, or muddy.
The cause for all of these is very often a bad idler tire or other dirty, worn, or tired rubber parts

After watching a pre programe tape ...while rewind at the end it makes noise and eats my tapes


I love these kinds of problems. Whenever a VCR eats tapes, it sounds like a combination of one or more things including;

mode switch;

worn/glazed/shiny pinch roller;

poor back tension on the reel tables;

stretched belts (if more than one belt is present in your machine).

Unless you have some technical knowledge of basic VCRs, I do not recommend that you undertake replacing any of the mechanical components yourself, as alignment/timing is involved. The replacement of those parts relating to the deck (if required) should be done by a professional service centre. They would have the necessary tools and facilities to do this.

I suggest that you take the unit to a workshop where they can examine it thoroughly - but get a quote first if you have any doubts about the likely cost(s). That way, you can decide afterwards if it is economical to repair the VCR or not. Up to you.

It could be something really simple, you should not need to replace the whole combo. Fingers crossed.

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

Hello! i have a samsung dvd vcr combo. 4 yers old. the vcr eats my tapes and pic is jumpy. what can i do to fix?


HELLO

You have a Tape Path problem here. There a few causes but I think the main one is the pinch roller may be worn/mis-shaped or even dirty. You need to have the tape path cleaned totally first and to try the deck again (has it been serviced/cleaned in four years?) If it still has the problem you will then need to have the pinch roller replaced.

There is also the possibility that the VCR deck may be developing a mechanical fault.

I wish you well with it. (:-)

VCR Eats the tapes


Often the "Pinch Roller" type Tape Drive can "Dry Out" and it slips. this causes the tape to get all screwed up.. It could also be a belt that turns the capstan.. Or even a thing called the "Mode Switch" In any event Ya probably be best to take it in for repair as it's not really a "Homer" I suggest ya get a quote and an explanation, and see if it is economically worthwhile?
