Yes, try to look inside (not in play) when you hit fast forward or rewind--are the reels turning too slow or jerking etc?

It indicates a problem with the transport part of the unit---bad drive idler or even a slipping or bad belt or belts if used.

SOURCE: vcr will not play tapes,it ejects the tape after a few seconds

This may be caused by the mode switch.
By the way it uses a K-Deck Mechanism.

VCR Stops on me


Hello Ro Power,

 

This might be due to the tape sensor malfunctioning. You will need a schematic, and multimeter, and a LED power meter to work on this problem. When the tape loads it causes an LED sensor to become blocked and then the sensor tells the control chip that a tape is present and the the controll chip allows the tape to continue playing, if the sensor does not work the signal never gets to the control chips and since other events happend and triggered the control chip the control chip looks at this as an error and the stops the tape , some units even eject the tape.

 

If you do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest that you take the VCR to a qualified shop and have them repair it.

 

I hope this helps,

Thank You,

Err on display when insert tape, no functions work.


Two things. First there is some damage to the tape transport mechanism. Only a good look around will confirm this. Secondly a faulty mode switch.

VCR won't record, just ejects tape


You have not mentioned the make and model number of the vcr. Any way the problem is due to end sensor or related circuit. End sensors are photo diods which you can check the shorting with a multy meter.

VCR Tape playing problem


The mean time between failure for the rubber parts in a VCR is about the same as the rubber parts on your car - about 5 to 7 years. You are due for a belt job.
