Question about Mitsubishi HS-U110 VHS VCR
My VCR stopped playing VHS. I tried also recording and rewinding without any succes. When a tape is inserted and a function is selected, VCR is making some noise like it's trying to play (probably the heads) for 4-5 seconds and then stops. It won't do anything else. I tried several VHS (new ones) and it seems to be the VCR. I can acces the menu so it must be the hardware. I also purchased a VHS head cleaner (wet type) and it didn't help at all. What could be the problem?
Sounds like the idler assembly isnt working. Without this assembly, the system cannot get the tape to actually move, and most systems will shut down if the tape isnt moving to prevent damage to the tape. In truth, this can be a complicatred repair, requiring the machine to be taken apart quite a bit. I would suggest taking this kind of a problem to a repair shop, but with the cost of simple VCR's coming down constantly, and the upcoming switch to DTV making the machines tuner obsolete, it would probably be more economical to just replace the machine.
