Question about Televison & Video
I have an old NEC VCR, by old I mean early 1980's... It seems the motor that turns the tape is no longer powerfull enough to do its job. As soon as I press PLAY it just plays a second and a half of the video; the machine takes the tape, opens it up and starts to read, but as soon as the motor starts to turn it just gives up! What service center can I go to get this thing looked at? I live in Montréal (Québec), Canada.
pretty sure they are audio tapes. you can take to a reproduction house and they will place on a dvd for 20ish bucks

If it is not a bad soldering joint somewhere, it could be the mode switch. They can sometimes be cleaned with Servisol Video 40, but you might have to replace it.
