Epson 3640 won't copy. Only scans. This just happened? Also new a message insert cassette 1 correctly. Haven't touched cassette??

You have to comply with error messages.

Remove the wall plug.
Remove the cassettes all the way out, most have two. Check inside for paper, or any bits of paper covering the cassette drawer open sensors. Replace the cassettes.
Plug the machine back in.

VCR 570/07 tape stuck in drawer, dosen't come out when swiched off?

The best way I know of is to carefully (after unplugging of course) locat th screws (hint - sometimes they love to hide them under stickers/rubber "feet" etc. - run your finger over the stickers while pressing hard, and you will be able to find a "circular indent where a screw hole is hiding) that allows the main shell/case case to be taken off. Generally this will allow you access to the area where the tape is mounted/tangled. From there, just carefully untangle.

Before re-assembling the VHS machine, take a q-tip with some alcohol or ethanol (non-scented nail polish remover), and lightly rub the mirror-like-surface cylinder (the playing head) inside the machine - all the way around. Dirt can accumulate on this head and will catch the tape to tangle it. This is likely why it got caught in the first place. Continue cleaning the head until the Q-tip shows no more dirt. I also used to clean any place the tape touched in sie the machine in this way (spools, etc, it want around that were obviously metal).

To wind the tape back up onto the cassette, locate the "button" on the side that allows you to flip open the front of the cassette (the hinged part that protects the tape but flips up when inside the machine), flip the front up and keep it lifted (temporary piece of tape, or rubber band arnound the entire cassette - whatever).

Look at the bottom of the tape and you will see a hole centered, and towards the top of the back side. you need to insert something into this hole and apply pressure. While keeping the pressure there, you can manually turn the cassette wheels to wind the tape back on.

I have a Kyocera FS6530MFP Printer and gives a ' error in cassette 1 ' message. Any clues?

Could be the rollers in that cassette are worn and causing a delay jam (Not picking the next sheet up) Try cleaning them.

CD function in 5 disc stereo constantly flashing "CHANGE"

Open the drawer and check to verify the disc was put in the disc 1 position. Sometimes the changer gets confused if disc 1 is not in the disc 1 cavity. Also, 5 disc changers are very prone to failure

Recording from a vhs cassette...

This dvd/vcr unit is having a problem with component failure. It is probably in the main power supply section, since the unit shuts down. This can happen in these products due to the qulaity of component use in the product runs. The components usually have 5% to 10% failure rate. Which is usually taken care of by the product warranty. Unfornately this is a common problem with big manufactuers and large production runs. You need to have the unit tested and serviced at a service center. The service center will have all the service information to repair you unit. The Magnavox Customer support telephone is 1-800-605-8453. Tell them the model number of you unit and about the problem with the unit shutting down during use. They will be able to tell how to your unit serviced. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Much loved old J.V.C. unit

Sounds to me like the belt drive is slipping!
Need to open her up and check tightness of belt and probably try to buy another one which will be tighter!

Cassette Recorder play problem

Sounds like the tape tension sensor is stuck. The sensor is always telling the mechanism that the tape has reached the end.
