Question about Sony SLV-SE840 VHS VCR
I have a Sony SLV-EZ77 VCR, Everything is plugged in fine all in the right place but when i turn on the mains power it the display on the screen on the VCR is dark as though it is in standby mode but it shows the numbers '70081'. when i press the standby or eject button it makes a noise and picture comes on but then just shuts off as though in standby mode. No other buttons respond when pressed.
SOURCE: VCR won't take tape
Is it ejecting the tape when you set up for timed record, or any record mode for that matter? If so, check for the presence of the record lockout tab in the tape. If tab is there, machine should accept it. If machine ejects tape with the tab present, then the sensor which detects tab present or absent is probably afoul. this sensor is often a small switch. This tab, by the way, is on the backside of the tape, on the left, looking at the tape from the back.

SOURCE: vcr does not run
Try changing the channels on the VCR itself. If you can do that, then it would indicate a problem with the VCR's remote. If you are still unable to change channels on the VCR manually, it could indicate a circuitry problem, for which you will have to get the VCR serviced.

Simple. The Cassette's 'Prevent Erasure' tab is missing. Just cover with Scotch tape and reload. Now try recording.

While the tape may appear to be loading properly, it is not. These units have a known problem with the grease at the loading arm getting sticky. This means that the tape is not loaded properly and will not move through the VCR properly. This is detected as the hubs not moving and the unit will eject the tape to prevent damage. This is a simple repair for anyone that has done these before, but requires an alignment check. This check requires a special alignment tape and equipment.
This should be a labor only repair.
