VCR Chews up tapes

To Whom This May Concern: More times than not, when I push the stop button after viewing or recording a tape, I hear a crunching sound that lets me know the tape is being chewed up. I really don't know what I can do to remedy this situation, hence my posting here. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated, and I thank you for your time.

My EWC1394 records programs, but when I rewind th tape, it shuts off. This happens several times before it starts to rewind the tape.

this is caused by the tape winding too tightly so when it rewinds it gets tension and thinks it is at the end of tape ,so stops.

It pays to FF and REW several times on new or other peoples tapes to have the tape acclimatised to the tension on your machine. It may also need to be serviced if it is doing it to tapes you have previously FF to the end and rewound. Older tapes stretch a little more than new tapes so are more forgiving.

I hAVE 24 in DVD triple combo ^&@$DG TV. I put

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.

Video Recording causing Picture interference

When you are recording, do you hear the vhs tape(motor) moving? Is the tv\vcr combo connected to the same power(electrical) plug with ANYTHING else ? On the SAME wall outlet with anything that generates noise?. Do you have ANYTHING ( electric clock ) WITH a motor connected to the same line\wall\outlet\power adapter?
2nd) Any loose ground [wires that go to any menal part inside TV\VCR will cause problems. Be very carful inside electronics parts and when they are alive [pluged in & turned on], Some times loose VHS rubber bands cause problems by slipping and jerking the tape recording.

EWC1304 VHS tape shuts off entire system

You probably have a bad or dirty mode select switch. Another possibility would be a gear out of time if a tape was forced in too quickly.

VCR Tape will not play, it keeps ejecting

I have a similar problem. It takes 3 or 4 times to get my Sony VCR to accept a tape. Once it does, everything is fine, until I turn it off. Next day, same trouble. I tried several tapes and brand new tapes. No difference. I have opened the cabinet and used alcohol to clean various stuff, no change.

Unable to record or playback VCR tapes

All you can do by yourself unlesss you are a tech. Is run a head cleaner tape through it. It sound like a dirty head to me. Here is something a lot of people do not know, The video head and the audio head in a VCR are two separate heads. thats why you can loose picture and not sound. Best taken apart and cleaned manually with rubbing alchol but not advisable if you are not experienced due to high voltage and if cleaning improperly you can damage the unit worse. Good Luck
