Question about JVC HR-A592U S-VHS VCR
Whenever I eject a tape the machine tries to pull it back in. If I take the tape out, the machine shuts down. It also shuts down if the tape rewinds and reaches the end. I can still use the machine otherwise and it works fine as long as there's a tape in the machine.
Hi I'm not familiar with your model, but what it sounds like is a bad "end sensor" on your machine. There are photo sensors on either side of the cassette basket which is what holds the tape in the machine. There is a light source that ends up inside the cassette when loaded, which shines both left and right. There is a section of clear tape inside the cassette at both the beginning and end of the tape. When the sensor on the left side sees light through the clear tape, the VCR knows you have reached the end and goes into rewind, when it sees light on the left side, it knows you have reached the beginning of the tape, and stops rewinding. This sensor is also used in some models to sense when you insert a tape in the basket. In that case, if the right side end sensor goes bad, the VCR always thinks you are trying to load a tape, so it doesn't want to give them up, and when you rewind, it never senses the beginning of the tape, so it will shut down when it reaches the beginning, and could even snap the tape. I'm 99% positive that is what is wrong with your VCR, it is an easy fix, but unfortunately, you won't likely find a repair shop that will sell you the proper sensor. I hope this helps in some way. Good Luck!
