Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My Panasonic VHS Player Model PV-V4020 is locked up so I cannot insert a new tape.

Recently I was watching a tape in my Panasonic VHS Player. When It was finished I ejected the tape and when I tried to insert a new tape the mechanism was stuck so that I was not able to put in a new tape.

This will be some form of physical damage to the carriage mechanism, that holds the tape. Sometimes it's a simple thing like the flap getting stuck. But often it's a broken piece of plastic.

SOURCE: Tape won't play, FF, or eject.

sorry to say that none.no trip button for that.i assumed that the magnetic strip of the tape is already wind up inside.you'll need to open the unit up and gently rotate the flywheel of the tape player until you can open the door of the tape compartment.no need to force or it will just break.

The sound on my Panasonic pv-4611 fades in and out while watching tapes. Doesn't matter whether they are factory or recorded ones by myself. Why?


This sounds like the Hi-Fi sound dropping out. It's mostly caused by dirt on the main video head. You need to clean it with either Servisol Video 40 or a head cleaning tape.

Tracking will not adjust, continues to roll, have tried manual tracking adjustment with remote, does not work, wondering if I need to clean or adjust something internal to the VCR


Yes take the top cover off and give all the heads etc a spray with Servisol Video 40. That might make a differance. Allow to dry before trying a tape! If the house has a smoker you might need to do a lot of work!
