Question about GoVideo Go Video DVD/VCR Combo
We bought this VCR player in 1998 and it has been running fine for many years. But, unfortunately, just recently, the machine started having trouble accepting/inserting and ejecting VCR tapes. They would end up getting stuck in the machine and we had a terrible time trying to retreive them. This has been going on for about the last year,during which we seldom tried to play it. And the very last time we tried inserting a tape over this past holiday season, it would not even accept the tape at all. Therefore, we couldn't play and VCR tapes the whole season.
What could be wrong with our VCR that's causing this problem?
As with any VCR, there are rubber parts inside that have become slick. This is a simple repair for any shop. The mechanisms are Samsung ones if I remember correctly. Expect a parts cost between $20-$40. Add in the local labor rate for the total cost. This is worth the repair cost as any replacement would not last anywhere near as long. This is also a normal occurrance as rubber parts harden with age. I have repaired many of these over the years.
