Question about Sansui VHF6010 VHS VCR

1 Answer

VCR won't rewind

My Sansui VCR is great until recently when it won't rewind a VHS tape. It would start and go about 2 seconds (slowly) and then it would stop and either "play" automatically or start recording, both of which I did not ask it to do.  Occasionally, if I keep pressing the rewind button, it will finally get it into the rewind mode but that happens once in a blue moon.


Anyone got any ideas on how to fix this?

Our Toshiba VCR won't play tape. It ejects tape after a few seconds.

If you are trying to play older VHS tapes, you may have to run them through some fast forward-rewind cycles to condition them and relieve stress

Toshiba dvr670ku - vhs tape won't play, shuts recorder off

look to see if tape will fully load and if FF or REWIND work, if not a transport problem, drive mechanism not moving the tape, unit will sense this and shut unit off----even a problem in the loading mechanism for the VHS tape not loading the tape all the way will do the same thing.

Getting E2 error flashing on vcr and can't rewind tape or anything.Don't have user manual to see what that error means.

E2 means: Loading motor locked in the unload direction. Usually(not always) happens with a going bad VCR tape on the rewind. Tape is becoming too difficult to rewind and/or VCR is getting tired. Eject tape. Discard tape as soon as practical, new tapes are cheap. To clear: Hold power on/off button for 8 seconds.
