Question about Sharp VC-H810U VHS VCR

Open Question

Sharp VC-A523U Taped a TV program as we have done many times but when we rewound the tape it played in fast forward speed. This has never happened before. We cleaned the heads and taped another program using a different tape and the same thing happened. We even tried playing the tape on a different recorder with the same result. HELP!

SOURCE: Tape get stuck when I playback after fast forward the tape

Yes, that is a possibility. Also check the mechanism which activates the brakes- is something sticking or broken? A dried or sticky grease can cause the brake mech. to hang up. A broken or cracked lever or slide piece could be your problem too. Late VCRs of the last 10+ years are rather breakable, unlike the older ones which were often built like tanks, comparatively speaking.

SOURCE: My VCR tapes skip or only play in fast forward

If you are recording the tapes in a slow speed, then I would suspect that the tracking pulse is not being recorded properly. Since this is a new VCR, return it for an exchange. One of the recording heads is bad.

If the belt does not solve problem it could be the idler tyre is worn and/or clutch, this quite often happens when tape has been playing for a while and most of tape is on right hand side, causing greater drag on take up spool.

How can I get my tape to eject?Sharp VC-A560. Played my taped, rewound, but tape would not eject. Tried to play again and it would not play.What can I do?


Unplug from wall outlet - find the wheel that ejects the tape when you slowly turn it. It's usually on the right side when the cover is open. Avoid touching any metal parts.

Forward fasts on its own


you may want to try fast forwarding at 2x (that is, press the FF key twice), although the speed will be faster, it may actually stop for you, when you press play, rather than going to the end.

Try disconnecting the TV from the power outlet and leave OFF for a couple of minutes.
If that did not work, try pressing the "DEMO" button on the remote or the front panel if you have one, or you may want to go into menu and look for something that says "demo"
Good Luck.

It sounds like the taped program was recorded on a different speed. The other VCR that you are playing the taped program may not have the speed needed to play it correctly.
Next time when you record a program try to make sure you use a speed that will be compatible on both VCRs.
For example a tape that last 120 minutes, using the different speeds will give the following recording times.
SP means "Standard Play" >>>> 2 hours
LP means " Long Play" >>>>> 4 hours
ELP means " Extra Long Play" 8 hours

Older VCRs have all the 3 speeds but newer ones only have SP and ELP.
Hope this helps.
