Re: Pye py90vg VCR will not play
There are 2 problems. On the botton of the machine you should replace the rubber drive belts. And on the top of the machine under the cover there is an idler wheel with a rubber wheel on it. that shoul be replaced too. Caution If you are doing this yourself please have the power cord disconnected. If you do not have the parts. It would probably be cheaper to buy a new unit, depending on the model. Because if the belts are worn then it is time for a complete service.

You have a transport problem, the mechanism the plays, FF or rewinds is not working.
Someone is going to have to open and look at the unit---as simple as a belt off or broken to the idler (rubber or geared) that doe the actual work, finding a shop that will work on a VCR unit is getting hard as most of the current techs have never seen this type of unit.
What I used to do when I opened one was have a old cassette with the tape removed! but the reels inside of it still there--tape off both sides of the cassette where it opens so the sensors on either side do not try to stop the unit from allowing this.
This way with the unit open and the dummy cassette in you can see thru its top to see if the reels are moving or not and not have the tape get in the way.
You need to replace all rubber bands inside the VHS.Vary difficult to find rubber band kit.If you use the TV in the heat, u must place a fan of some kind in the back blowing IN to cool the insides of TV. [AFTER U REPLACE rubber bands]
