Question about Sony SLV-940HF VCR
I recently acquired a Sony SLV-940-HF in what appears to be very good condition. The problem is you can insert a tape and the unit takes the tape in, but after about three seconds, ejects it. Any Ideas?
Thank you in advance.
1st try a different tape.
If it's the same, listen carefully for unusual noises, clunks, grinding, etc. when the tape goes in. Is something binding?
With the tape out, look inside the door, see if you can spot anything in there that shouldnt be there such as a small toy, money, playing card, sandwich, bits of food? Those are the usuals.
Turn the vcr upside down and holding the tape door open, tilt it so if there was a foreign object in there, it would fall out.
