Question about Mitsubishi HS-U447 VHS VCR
My VCR was in an extra room unused and not plugged into an electrical outlet for about 1 year. I went to use the machine again and when I plugged it in and put in a video tape it would engage the tape and run it about 5 seconds and then stop and eject the tape. It does this over and over and I have used various tapes with the same results. I pulled the cover but could see no obvious problem with anything. Help!
This machine is telling you it needs cleaning or the sensor that pulls the tape to the drum is bad and needs to be changed out. But you had it sitting for a year would not rule out that cleaning is in order also it would not rule out the sensor i am talking about. I repaired VCR's for years and the sensor is telling it to eject as there is a jame or it is dirty.
Thanks for using Fixya.com
