Question about Philips MWD2205 DVD Player/VCR
My dvd player on this product works perfectly, it's the vcr i'm having trouble with. when i put in a tape the unit shuts off. then when i turn it back on, it automatically ejects the tape. even if i put the tape in and hit play quickly or put a tape in that should auto play the unit still shuts off and ejects tape. sometimes when the tape is ejected the actual tape inside the cartridge gets stuck inside the unit on something and i have to wiggle my hand through and release it. this leaves places on the vhs tape that when it is played on a working vcr it is static and messed up sound. help?!?!?!?!?!?
Zv427m9a 2 yrs old. Upon opening the case to get at the stuck tape I noticed brown liquid (from heat) over the bare jumper wires behind the heads. This unit has a direct drive capstan motor with a good belt to the take up and supply hubs. The load motor is fine as are the heads. In this case I believe a cold solder joint or overheated component on the under side of the circuit board is the culprit as the power supply is ok.
It is probably not worth bringing to a repair shop for more than a $50.00 repair.
