Question about Philips VR330 VHS VCR
My VCR doesnt take tapes anymore. The mechanism that takes the tapes inside the VCR won't move and I then get a flashing "3" on the LED panel.Is there anything I can do to stop this. Have tried resetting, checked for foreign objects inside VCR and unplugging but still the same problem.
A possible bad sensor, bad mode switch, mechanism gear timing off, or perhaps a missing or incorrect voltage from the power supply may cause this problem. I don't know what the "3" indicates, this may be an error code which would help a technician with the proper literature diagnose. Unfortunately, most modern electronics, VCRs, TVs and such are of the disposeable variety. Costs of repair, if you can even find a service center, are usually not economical. If you by chance have some technical savvy, you might be able to trace the problem down.
