Question about Toshiba M655 VHS VCR
I have a Toshiba M655 VCR which plays back OK. But, on some tapes, it immediately shuts down. I watched with the lid off it it looks like the take-up reel on the bad tapes has trouble turning. The tape starts to back up by the capstan and then it shuts down. Sometimes, if I hit PLAY a second time it will work OK.
The vcr is on threshold of belt life. try replacing (or cleaning with alcohol) the take-up reel belt. The vcr has a built-in time-out feature to protect the video tape. if it takes too long for things to happen, shut-down occurs.
