The problem you are having is caused by the grease that is used to move the reel positioning mechanism has hardened. Once the grease hardens the reels can no longer position properly. The grease needs to be removed and replaced. Do not remove the cassette assembly, only remove the top plate. Also check the pinch roller grease, make sure the pinch roller moves freely.

Now-a-days most of the gears are made out of plastic(HDPE, if I remember correctly), when the rewinding command is given even if one gear tooth is worn/broken it will throw the entire timing out of 'gear'. Since the problem has already occurred, and, this is the only function that has malfunctioned my advice would be to leave it as it is! ('cos repairing/replacing it is manual & therefore a costly affair plus there is no guarantee that the replacedment will function properly)....sodeep

VCR's have a thing called a mode switch. This tells the electronics of the machine want position the mechanical section is in. If it gets wrong signals then the VCR electronics power the machine down. These wrong signals are often caused by damage to any part of the VCR mechanical section. Perhaps in this case something to do with the carriage unit. But the switch itself can go wrong. A visual inspection inside might reveal damage to some part of the VCR.
