    Thanks for suggestion - but this problem exists even without a tape in the unit. So do you still think this is the casue.

    Basically the unit can be switched on for only 1 second before it switches itself off. tape or no tape.

Hi, This is a common problem with some VHS units. The problem is that the tape does not fully extend over the video head and the slack sensor shuts the unit off. This involves the motor and driving mechanism that actuates the spreader arms that moves the tape. Usually this is caused by slippage of a small rubber belt. Though the repair work involve is relatively easy, removing the mechanism and replacing the belt would require that you be familiar with component placement and certain timing sequence of tape loading. Your best bet probably would be to seek the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things are or should you need additional information. good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    Based on your updated information -
    The unit switches itself off as a safety feature. The unit senses something is wrong and to prevent further damage switches off. This can either be in the power supply section or any of the mechanical section (including parts in initial post).

    Repair would involve knowledge of electronics circuitry, voltage readings and possibly desoldering/soldering. Further familiarity with mechanical timing/sequencing may also be required.

    Perhaps your best option would be to seek the opinion/services of a qualified on-site professional. You have to determine if the repair is economically reasonable or consider replacing the unit.

    Cheers.

Hi, I have a JVC HR-J658 VCR that doesn't eject tapes.


You mean a tape is stuck inside? Disconnect power and open up the cover. If the tape is stuck around the posts, free it and by manually turning the loading motor you can slowly get the mechanism to eject the tape.

I would say that it's because you haven't used the original test tape. Where the recordings that play up done on the model before the problems started? If so then that would prove that the tape is just slightly off. I can't see it being a fake head, nobody would make any money doing fake VHS heads these days!

I bought a panasonic cassette adaptor for my vhs-c tapes . it says svhs adaptor on the front of the box .will the ordinary vhs-c tapes fit in it and does the door open on the front or is it loaded from the...


You don't specify the adapter you have, but most load from the top. The main thing here is that VHS and VHS-C are both the same size of tape. Whether they are recorded in SVHS mode or not will not affect the adapter, just whether or not you get a picture. Theadapter only allows you to put a compact cassette (VHS-C) into a standard VHS VCR. The adapter will require batteries to allow it to place the VHS-C cassette tape into the proper position for use in the VCR.

Can I record from SVHS tapes or only from VHS tapes? Thank you, Victor


To record from SVHS you will need to hook it up by way of cable or SVideo Connecting and red and white RCA plugs. It should work just fine.

SLOW DOWN PLAYBACK MODE


You cannot play SVHS tapes on a standard VHS machine. Your solution is to either:
1. Buy an SVHS Home unit (not a great idea)
2. Use regular VHSC tapes in your camcorder (these will playback fine in your existing home unit).
3. Hook your camcorder directly into your TV and use the camera as a playback device.

Incorrect copy protection error on SVHS tapes


I would recommend obtaining a "stabilizer" box just to remove any possible Macrovision. You can usually pick these up in small electronics stores or Ebay. I have heard of this problem with Mini DV tape camera recordings as well.
