SOURCE: RCA VR688HF VHS VCR won't accept tapes

The brain in a VCR has a little switch assembly that senses what position all the mechanical stuff its in. Apparently, the mech is out of whack which is why it won't let you play. This is a common problem and any VCR shop should be able to repair it.

SOURCE: emerson vcr won't accept a tape

Yes, it can be fixed, but the cost may not be worth it.

There are several components which may be the problem, ranging from a gear, a sensor, the load motor, or it may even require replacement of the entire cassette loading assembly.

Without an inspection, it's impossible to tell exactly what the problem is, or likely cost to repair.

It may be much cheaper to replace the machine.

SOURCE: my vcr will accept a tape and begin to function only when...

Weird one! The only thing I can think that would cause that is that the other things reduce the load on the socket so the VCR can't get enough power to function right. Have you had an electrician check the wiring in your house and inparticular that socket? Otherwise I would guess it's a power supply problem on the VCR. It's not the fuse anyway they would just blow causing no power at all!

Go-Video VCR Problem with accepting/ejecting tapes


As with any VCR, there are rubber parts inside that have become slick. This is a simple repair for any shop. The mechanisms are Samsung ones if I remember correctly. Expect a parts cost between $20-$40. Add in the local labor rate for the total cost. This is worth the repair cost as any replacement would not last anywhere near as long. This is also a normal occurrance as rubber parts harden with age. I have repaired many of these over the years.

VCR Not Accepting Certain VHS Tape


I had this happen once and all I did to correct it was to fast forward it just slightly or manually wind it past the leader strip (the clear or white part at the beginning). To do it manually, there is a small hole you must insert a toothpick (or something else as small) to push the pin in and then advance it with your finger while holding the pin in. Hope this helps.

Vcr will not accept video tape


A common problem on this unit is the Mode Switch. It gets dirty or sometimes breaks and must be replaced - definitely not a job for the unexperienced. If you mess up just a tiny bit, especially during re-assembly, your VCR unit will never work right ! Sorry for the bad news.

VCR won't take tape


Is it ejecting the tape when you set up for timed record, or any record mode for that matter? If so, check for the presence of the record lockout tab in the tape. If tab is there, machine should accept it. If machine ejects tape with the tab present, then the sensor which detects tab present or absent is probably afoul. this sensor is often a small switch. This tab, by the way, is on the backside of the tape, on the left, looking at the tape from the back.

Machine not accepting tapes


Just a thought : check if the head isn't blocked ! It should rotate freely (without any friction). I had more or less the same phenomenon (my VCR wouldn't accept any tapes and nothing was activated if I "pushed " a tape in). The reason was here that the VCR wasn't used for a long time (a few months), but it was plugged in all the time (heated up the interior). As a result the head was a-kind-of-blocked. Nothing serious, since I rotated the head manually my VCR works fine.
