Question about Televison & Video
No numbers come up on the tape counter. just dashes going round in a rectangular shape. auto flashes a few times ,then goea off. no picture or sound when tape is running.
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.

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.

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

yes, this is what happens to analog tape...it gets corroded because it was not stored in a cool spot...your vcr heads are cleaned that is why u still hear the audio...(video will go first all the time)...but if you play it all the way through once a twice (see if you can save it ...dvd)
