Allegro DVD/VCR combo - not reading disk & eating tapes.

Sorry I know very little about the dvd side but my experience with several VCRs is they need cleaning sometimes just like audio tape recorders and players need cleaning. Early in my days of VCR ownership the engineer I used was sick of seeing me and taught me how to clean the heads, guides and rollers myself to restore performance and help prevent tapes being chewed. Head cleaning tapes simply did not reach the parts needing cleaning though the the wet type sometimes helped.

A VCR might work normally for several months and then suddenly it would happen again. Sometimes I needed to do a clean several times in a month. I did have a Sharp VCR once and that had something called an idler reel that would "suddenly" need replacing (several times) due to chewed tapes but other than that manual cleaning did the job every time.

Later VCRs were fitted with a self cleaner that worked well and meant there was no trouble for a long time but when the self cleaner became loaded with filth they actually made matters worse.
Matter of interest, I use clean newspaper and methylated spirit for cleaning.

Suddenly quit working

Looks like the lens of the player is dirty or damaged. Try a lens cleaner CD first.
If it doesn't work then you will have to get the lens replaced. Since the Player is still under warranty use while you still can..

As a last resort only: There is a small screw on the laser unit that adjust the laser intensity. Small adjustments (keep a note of the original angle and other angles that you try) can help but be verycareful or you will render the laser as useless as **** on a boar.
