Someone would have to look inside to see if the tape is not moving, no movement will cause it to shut down--have to look inside first.

SOURCE: Sony SLV-940HF VCR Will not accept tape

Dear Rob, There can be two reasons for your problem.Let us consider the simpler and most likely cause.....Belts!!! Unplug the Plug from the Power socket. Open up the top and bottom Panels.Check the belts. Most likely you will find a belt has snapped ( a 80% possibility) or become very very loose. Also check the Tape Loading mechanism,there is a small belt which connects from the Loading motor to the Loading Mechanism. Replace the belts as a entire set. Let me know if this worked out. Good Luck.

SOURCE: JVC HR-S9500U

OK, found the problem. Another website had the same question on the HR-S9600U, the 9500's replacement:

http://www.cippico.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?p=528&sid=ce3dfc944e4539181195720b836021f4

I checked my vcr, and, sure enough, there was a sort of clicking sound coming from the drum area immediately before the unit would go into "Auto" mode. I removed the complete drum assembly, and tore into the little gearbox, and found the two black, plastic gears with inside pinions that drive the metal screws to change the video head position had each cracked and were slipping on the shafts. This caused the gearbox to bind up.

Using a jeweler's screwdriver, I roughed up the metal shaft and the inside of the gears where they slip onto the shafts, and glued them on using a two-part epoxy. I then re-assembled it all, sorta setting the screws about two turns after their contact with the base of the upper drum. Now, upon power-up, the drum adjusting motor toggles one direction, then the other, and the unit stays on. Playback seems OK.

So, there you go. Yay me....

How do i round a math problem??


put one number on top, the other one under that. Last figures (if one has more than the other) should be lined up.
Then start adding top and bottom on the left. 4+1 gives 5
then the second from the left 6+3 gives 9 then the thirty from the left 3+2 gives 5

231
364
----- +
595

when you have to ad 7+7 it will give 14. Write down the 4 and add 1 to the next sum.

You also can put more than 2 in the row, like

231
645
44
911
+----

Vcr has sound but no picture


You will need to clean the heads on the vcr. Find a good tape cleaner. Or you may use a cotton cloth with some rubbing alcoho,l and wipe the round cylinder that spins around the vcr tape. This is a common problem on all vcrs and vcr combos. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Hello! I have a Sanyo VHR 120E video recorder. The trouble is that the tape remains and it does not add up! How can you make out of it?


Tape remain counters are never accurate. For one thing VCR tapes are made by different makers and some like to give you extra. Some counters allow around 5 minutes extra at the end of the tape. Treat all times as approx, then you can't go wrong.

VHS Tape


Possibly the tape is wound too tight and is not actually playing when in play mode.
Also, tapes can be accidentally erased. If it is placed on a speaker or other magnetized surface it will erase itsself. The magnet draws something out of it.
I'm not sure exactly how it works but I know it happens.
Don't give up just yet. Check with your local video rental store... maybe they know a trick that will help you.

Good Luck :)

Video tape gets eaten on rewind


Does the machine play tapes well? Clear steady picture and all? No tracking bars? wavering sound? Tape chewing is generally a problem with a bad Capstan Pinch Roller, Associated symptoms are as above. Please do recheck or confirm if any of the above problems are also present.

VCR WILL NOT PLAY


The problem is the tape mechanism is malfuctioning. It trys eather to load or play a tape and a sensor inside tells the microprocessor to shut down this mechanism before damage is done to the tape. BUT sometimes a malfunction causes a damaged tape too. this unit has NO user serviseable parts inside itself, so its time to take this puppy into a repair shop to see if its worth the repair , Unless this units more then a few years old?? then its time to buy a shiny new unit. Good luck
