The deck will accept a large tape but not a small one. I do not get an error code the small format just won't seat.

Most likely problem is the flat cable in the cassette housing. This cable breaks, and the sensors for large/small tapes can't tell the deck to move the reel tables to accommodate the tape.

Dear etu7diante,
The another way to release the cassette from the deck is by moving the flywheel manualy after opening the cover of the system. The system should be disconnected from the power supply. If you are able to to do this please let me know .later I can guide you to do the job.

Flashing auto display - won't power up

The infra red light in the middle of the mechanical deck, that powers the left and right photo sensors is not ok.It looks like a small lamp( you cant see it when it works-Infra red mind it).The video cassette has a large round opening in the bottom towords the front, and accomodates this lamp.please check it out.

The mechanism is out of sync, put a tape in and hold it, it wont go in but will try to open don't let it, remove the battery and reattach, let the tape eject, rinse and repeat 3 or 4 times and it will finally accept the tape.

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.
