Question about Televison & Video
Loading cycle doesn't energize when cassette is placed in front load basket. At power up (with no cassette), all motors energize and cycle (i.e., motors appear good). Cassette loaded sensor is leaf switch that appears OK. Plastic gears/cams in loader mechanism appear OK. Belt from loader to mechanism is OK. Motors cycle when the ''eject'' button is pressed (no cassette in machine). Machine worked OK a year ago when placed into storage. What happened?
It is caused by components failing due to age. It was manufactured circa 1984 and had a projected life of 20 years. You may find a service centre that will undertake a refurbish but I have no idea where you are so cannot recommend any one.

Are there any indications on the front panel at all? There should be an error code of some sort there. If not, I'll need to research this a bit. Please update this with any codes.

Now-a-days most of the gears are made out of plastic(HDPE, if I remember correctly), when the rewinding command is given even if one gear tooth is worn/broken it will throw the entire timing out of 'gear'. Since the problem has already occurred, and, this is the only function that has malfunctioned my advice would be to leave it as it is! ('cos repairing/replacing it is manual & therefore a costly affair plus there is no guarantee that the replacedment will function properly)....sodeep

Tips for a great answer:

Oct 25, 2011 | Panasonic NV-FJ620 VHS/S-VHS playback VCR
This can be due to many faults and need a full check up but I can fill up with few tips.
1. If the cassette is loaded and there is no power then the loading sectionmust be manually removed and the turned to push out the forward loading and eject the tape..
2. use of a 12 volt DC on the loading motor can assist to push out the cassette, make sure the motor connection is removed from the circuit so as not to damage the loading IC.
3. Some cases the capstan also is the loading motor and you can manually turn to release.
4. sometimes a jammed link , broken gear can be the cause and so it must be set free mechanically.
