Question about Philips VR540 VHS VCR
Had a tape recently stuck in the player and got it out by wriglling and tapping the player while it was trying to get it out by its self . Since then the player will not automatically pull the tapes in and is showing the display P-04 . Any solutions would be of great help .
I think dodgecharger has said it all. i go with his opinion.

A couple of possibilities: One, if the mechanism is gear driven, it may be "out of time." Gear positioning is critical, and if a gear has slipped a tooth or more out of time, the unit will not work. Often, there are marks on the gears which must be lined up in a particular mode, as specified in service literature. Also, you may have a broken gear. Second: Some other component, perhaps a part of the tape carriage (mechanism which holds the tape) is broken. VCRs of the last 10+ years are made poorly, prone to break, disposeable, unlike those of the '80s which were usually built like tanks. Unless this is a high dollar VCR, repair isn't recommended, even if you can find a repair shop.
