SOURCE: VCR eats tape when rewinding

A couple of possibilities: 1. Braking problems: When VCR goes from FFWD, REW, Play to stop, there are a pair of "brake pads" engaged to stop the reels, and prevent tape spillage out into the machine. These pads, often rubber like, are on levers which contact one side of each reel. If you take the cover off the VCR, and look down where the tape is loaded, you will like see these brake assemblies. If the rubber pad is missing, or lever pivot points gummied up, then this is your issue. 2. Take up reel isn't being engaged to take up the tape on tape eject. When a tape is loaded into the machine, tape is pulled from the cartridge and threaded into play ready position. When eject mode is engaged, the tape must be pulled back into the cartridge, or you will have tape hanging out the front end of the cartridge, and may get caught on the VCR internals, or at least be mangled by the cartridge door. The often issue here is likely the idler assembly pivot point is sticky. This idler pivots, moving from the take-up reel (right reel) to the supply reel reel (left one), depending on what mode is selected. FFWD & play to the right, left for REW. If this idler is gummed up at it's pivot point, movement will be sluggish at best, and might not be engaging the right reel quickly enough to pull tape in before tape eject. This idler is sitting right between the reels down where the tape sits. A little light oil on the pivot point may be enough to loosen it up. Otherwise it might need to be removed and the old grease removed, and a drop or two of light oil applied.

This is an indication that the tape sensors may be dirty or going bad. It could also be due to tape tension (the lack of). Do you have the service documents for this device?

theres probably something out of whack in the vcr probably one of the pins inside your best best if you want to keep it is to take it to a repair shop or if your handy open it up and see if anything is either stuck in there or bent.

Actually the problem is in the capstan drive. If you replace or clean the idler, the problem will likely disappear....accordianman

VHS tape is running at high speed when insert it to VCR. no playback..buttons doesnot work.


Check if the fast forward button is more inside than the rest of the buttons. May be its stuck in the ff position. After all they were just micro switches below the plastic buttons strip. The specific ff micro switch may be stuck, if I were you I would try some switch cleaning spray to loosen it. But be prepared that the control ic is busted.

Toshiba dvr670ku - vhs tape won't play, shuts recorder off


look to see if tape will fully load and if FF or REWIND work, if not a transport problem, drive mechanism not moving the tape, unit will sense this and shut unit off----even a problem in the loading mechanism for the VHS tape not loading the tape all the way will do the same thing.

GE VG4270 vcr power turns off quickly when recording or playing a tape


Have someone look inside---if tape is not loading all the way against the video heads or tape does not move in play-rewind-FF then there is a problem with the transport mechanism which is what performs these functions.

VCR is in locked position when play is pressed.


I believe Panasonic has taken over the service and distribution of Akai.  A check on the Internet for Akai will lead you to a service link. I have an Akai combo TV-VCR that I was able to download a manual for. Parts.com may have other parts for your unit. I need more info on your unit. Does it run in play? Rewind and FF? Does the counter move? If the unit functions mechanically, be sure your patch cords are properly connected - yellow for composite video, white and red for audio. Be sure the input is properly selected on you monitor or TV.

VR8707 VCR. No Rewind or Fast Forward


I thing that you are having problems with your gear assembly on the carriage. FF and RW use a series of gears to move the tape from one reel to the other. If possible could you take some pictures of the gear assembly. More then likely the gears are not making contact or the drive belt has slipped. Granted this is just conjecture until I can see those pictures of the assembly. electronagetec@aim.com
