Question about Panasonic NV-FJ620 VHS/S-VHS playback VCR
Hi, This morning my wife could not get a cassette to eject. I took the cover off the recorder and 'muscled' it out. However, seems like I damaged the loading arm cog. Fortunately I was able to get a replacement here in Adelaide SA and install it. I had to mess around with the timing of the two loading arm cogs to get it to accept a cassette, but finally seemed to get it working OK.
Now when a cassette is inserted, none of the controls seem to function - it won't stop playing or eject the cassette. The player just seems to continually drive the tape slowly, even when the ON/OFF button has been hit. I have to turn the machine off and manually wind it out.
The drive belt seems to be OK - this was suggested as a possible cause of the not-ejecting problem. Can't see any other obvious problems.
Can you suggest a cause and solution to the problem.
Retime the gears and clean everything

I beleave your sensor that tells the player weather a tape is in there or not needs replaced ~ It sounds like it doesent know the tape is not there aand will not shut down! (replace tape sensor)
