Question about Philips VRA611AT VCR
HAVENT WORKED ON VCR,S FOR OVER 20 YEARS SUSPECT IDLER PROBLEM DONT SEE TIRES LIKE IN PAST MACHINES ANY HELP ? CANT FIND MAG TECH SERVICE RETIRED TECH IS THIS PART OF THE THROW AWAY ECONOMY??
The old idler wheel has been replaced with gears (cheaper and last longer then the old rubber wheel). What you need to do is to gain access to the loader motor and turn it until the carriage begins to move, once the carriage gets to the top and moves outward you should be able to eject the tape with no problem.
Believe it or not VCRs are throw away technology, since it costs as much to repair one as it does to buy a new one. However, there are a lot of people who still hold on to their VCRs.
I hope this helps,
