There are small rubber belts that drive the tape spindle that makes the tape play! Over time these stretch and become loose and make the tapes play slowly and even shut down (replace belts and it should be fine) these belts are located in back of tape spindel and are about two inches long!

Problems with tape drives HP7980A HP-IB.reel stopping with message missload. reel moves and after obtaining BOT jump forward, but doesn't jump back to BOT and failed


Water is a great damaging factor for tape drives. I know you can disassemble the drive (almost) complete and clean everything you can see. Not only should all moving parts and rollers guiders be cleaned, but also the logic boards and the cables and connectors. You are not allowed to remove any of the rolling parts, because you wont be able to readjust them without calibration tools. Then it should be reassembled after cleaning. Also use a cleaning tape several times, to remove all residue of the cleaning fluid. There is special cleaning fluid for things with water damage, but the heads and guiding system can be cleaned with clean alcohol (no spiritus)

For what it is worth, I found an old manual of the drive. Because it does not have a normal URL I put the link in the text here:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/information_storage/software/ltt/2-wd11.pdf

Don't use any of the storage tapes, you have your data on, because you could damage the tapes. In the end, perhaps you have to buy another tape drive, to restore your data so save the tapes, till you are 100% sure the drive won't eat the tapes.

VHS TAPE FF/RW REAL SLOW AND SQUEAKS AND STOPS DURING PLAYBACK


It sounds as though the drive mechanism needs to be overhauled. This can entail replacing belts or drive wheels, depending on the model. On occasion, I have had success cleaning belts and wheels, but the real solution is to clean everything that moves, and replace the belts and "rubber" drive wheels. Make certain everything moves smoothly and easily, too. They used to sell rebuild kits for different machines, though most people just buy a new machine. You might look on JVC's website. There should be plenty of used machines available, too. Only you and I still use VHS. LOL

Tape stuck in drive


The best way that I have solved this is by using the move commands from the drive, and move it from drive to any free tape slot. Also if that does not work, put a few tapes in the drive and perform the random moves test in diagnostics, that will fool the drive to move the tape.

Loud noise on rewind


You may have an idler gear wheel which has been damaged- perhaps broken/worn gear teeth or something afoul in it's drive mechanisms. Check this idler which sits down in between the supply and take-up spindles. You should be able to see this with no tape loaded. This idler should also move freely from supply to takeup- if it is sticky in movement this could be the problem. If your idler is broken, you may be able to replace it. Check with a service center- or a parts supplier. MCM electronics is one such supplier- there are others.

Cassette player will not work


common fault on the JVC tape decks is the belt stretch and then it does a clicking sound its trying to pick up the audio heads. changing the belt is quite hard if you have`nt done it before.

SONY LIB-81 Error on LCD screen - Drive Information 51


I think this sounds like the drive is having a issue loading and moving the tape in slot 1.
AIT units are known for having this kind of problem.
Try a cleaning tape and then a new tape fresh out the wrapper for a test backup.

if it fails with a known good tape then its time to send it out for repair

Tape deck not working


Possibly a slipping rubber belt in the tape unit drive is not gripping enough to complete an action and so is just stopping everything from happening until it completes that action. You might try GENTLY helping the belt complete its action.

Tapes not in 24p play for 2 seconds than stop, WHY?


The BR-DV3000 DV deck has LP inhibit function which is set in the operations menu. JVC does not recommend the use of LP mode and therefore locks this mode out by default. You can change this setting to allow operation in LP mode if you like but I don't recommend it. Using LP mode on DV tape causes the error rate to escalate due to the narrower track width produced by the slow moving tape. Good Luck, this is a nice machine!

Tape is stuck in VCR- Fast rewind and forward


It may need to be cleaned. Mechanical problems are one of the big problems with VCRs they use alot of mechanical moving parts and play for so long they fail. Plastic parts dont help much either. The pinch roller takes up the slack and is usualy the part that fails first because it constantly runs along the tape and builds a coating on the rubber so it doesnt grip the tape and pull it back into the cassette. If its not pulling the tape back in then it hangs up inside and you cant get the tape out. Fastforward uses the reels to pull the tape not so much the roller. Try and stop 2 times then fast forward then eject the tape. Try and eject the tape while its fastforwarding so it doesnt do anything else. Sometimes machines will unload after its been in fastforwad a while then it will eject. You will hear a change in the sound when it unloads, you can hear the mechanical arms move the tape in and out of the cassette. Thats when you eject it. You cant really clean it till you get the tape out. YOu can clean the pinch roller with fingernail polish or paint remover. It is a wheel inside it looks like a black tire. It pinches the tape against the capstan arm this is why it developes a film or a shine on the rubber making it slip.
