Question about Sony SLV-940HF VCR
My old Sony Sony SLV-940HF VCR will not accept a tape, when I power it up the amchine seems to go into forward fast or rewind for a few seconds and then stops, sometimes it turns off then and other times it stays on but will not accept a video tape. I have the following on the front display panel: APC Auto-tracking a read out of tape time that won't reset and the tape speed. Any help would be great. Thanks Rob/Seattle
Dear Rob, There can be two reasons for your problem.Let us consider the simpler and most likely cause.....Belts!!! Unplug the Plug from the Power socket. Open up the top and bottom Panels.Check the belts. Most likely you will find a belt has snapped ( a 80% possibility) or become very very loose. Also check the Tape Loading mechanism,there is a small belt which connects from the Loading motor to the Loading Mechanism. Replace the belts as a entire set. Let me know if this worked out. Good Luck.
