Question about GE VG4250 VHS VCR
Power switch powers unit on and off. When I insert a tape (with power on or off), it loads successfully and the displays shows Err, the PLAY, FF, Rewind or EJECT buttons do nothing. When I power off, the tape advances for about 10 seconds and then ejects, no damage to tape. Have cleaned the belt, no change. Same results with multiple brand tapes. Unplugging for days does not help.

The power supply is starting to fail. If you can solder, you should be able to fix this. If memory serves me correctly, there are 2 capacitors that may be causing this. Look for a cap in the 22ufd range on the primary side of the power supply. This cap will be a 160V electrlytic cap. Replace it with a new one. That may resolve it. In the meantime, I'll look up your model for additional specifics.
