Question about JVC HR-S9800 S-VHS VCR
Worked well until a few days ago. Display comes on briefly if switched on, and tape will thread around the head. However, the tape is then back threaded into the cassete and the cassete ejected. the display then turns off. Tried replacing timer lithium battery and checking no timer function is on. No success...
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

SOURCE: vhs tape gets chewed
the rubber belts and rubber capstan need cleaning/conditioning. you can attempt this with alcohol swabs and if you find rubber conditioner (in the past was easy to find in audio supply stores) apply some of this also. if this treatment does not solve, then may need new rubber belt kit. good luck.

Generally, you have to take off the cover, and find the motor that
drives the cassette loading mechanism, then turn the motor shaft with
your fingers (many many times) until the cassette is unloaded.
Usually the moter is easy to get at on top just to the right of the cassette mechanism. However sometimes it is underneath and you can only get at it by taking everything apart. Don't try this yourself and don't take the cassette carraige assembly apart trying to get at the cassette unless you don't plan on using this VCR again.
