Vhs is stuck in machine. Won't play and won't eject.


There are any number of reasons why it won't play. The loading basket is jammed, the video tape has got tangled up in the mechanical section of the vcr or the loading gears are stripped. Unplug machine and remove top, [screws side and back] if the tape is spewed carefully remove by cutting it and clean tape particles, for any other problem have a technician check it out.

Can't get my vcr off auto. It keeps flashing and vcr won't shut off. Can't get to the menu long enough to see how to shut it off


Try unplugging the VCR for 20 seconds and plugging it back in. It probably will still flash because the clock needs to be reset but you should be able to turn it on and off.

Vcr not working


Hello!
Sorry to admit, but your VCR's signal processor is down. On screen display is generated by microprocessor, but video signal by different circuitry. Anyway, there is nothing you can do, except surrender to repair shop. Or, worst case scenario: buy another one. Even though I won't recommend to do so. "Modern" VCRs are cheap plastic toys, won't last too long, no replacement parts available, etc. If you have some technician's background, you may open the unit and look for "bloated" capacitors in power supply area or check electrolytic capacitors with "in circuit" capacitor checked, if you have one. If not: try to look for reputable repair shop, what stays in business for a while. there, still might be the people, familiar with VCR problems.
good luck with your project,
thanks,
Alex.

Power goes off when a cassette is inserted. Tried cleaning heads but it won't even run that. When power is turned back on the cassette is immediately ejected.


Good day!!!

Most common problems
  • VCR refuses to FF or REW and shuts off.
  • VCR shuts off entering PLAY or REC or at random during PLAY or REC.
  • VCR eats tapes.
  • VCR doesn't accept tapes or ejects them without cause.
  • Sound is wavery, fluctuating, or muddy.
The cause for all of these is very often a bad idler tire or other dirty, worn, or tired rubber parts

Hello
It is an internal circuit problem.

The unit fails to operate properly. Press [POWER] on the main unit to switch the unit to
standby. Now press [POWER] on the main unit again to turn the unit on.
OK

Getting my VCR to record from the TV with a converter box hookup


Hook up antenna to converter box then from that out to the vcr's input (red,white, yellow connections are better than coaxial).

SAFE


Pro-Tect Plus™ Locking Feature
To disable VCR usage or to protect set timer recordings, the unit can be locked so that the
buttons on the VCR or remote control don’t work.
• To Lock: Press and hold either the remote control’s ON•OFF or VCR button until SAFE
appears in the display to indicate Pro-Tect Plus is active. SAFE also appears if the VCR is
turned on while the feature is activated.
To Unlock: Press and hold either the remote control’s ON•OFF or VCR button until SAFE
disappears from the front panel display. Unlocking is the only way to use the VCR.
