The heads need cleaning and/or the tapes are old and dirtying up the playing heads.
Run a wet tape head cleaner through an see if this improves.

For a fraction of the cost to repair, you can buy a new machine. I just had the same problem andI bought one in Miami with all the speakers etc. installed for US $ 60.00

I have a Yamaha KXW302U audio tape player. And when I play a tape on the A deck, after one second, it stops.


The auto stop function is activating due to lack of reel rotation on the TU reel and so you may need a reel drive Idler tire or a new belt.

My zenith 4head vcr works, then stops


When a VCR encounters a mechanical problem, the electronics will stop playback and shut it down. I suspect that fault has developed in the mechanism and that the tape becomes jammed. The only way to find out it to take off the top cover and watch what happens when the video tape is played.

Panasonic SC-AK45 stereo not playing cassette tapes


I may not have worked on one of these before but all tape decks have some common drive parts. Yours is missing the proper torque to drive the reel table in take-up for play and your fast wind observation also points to either drive transfer problems or the motor itself. I suspect the fastest answer is to have a tape deck technician work on it. Dual cassette decks are not known for being the long lasting products like a singles cassette deck is.

I have tapes with videos on them. I want to put them on the computer but I never did in about a year. I finally got around to doing it. I know there is video on the tapes but when I play them they don't...


When you get a blue screen, it is usually an indication of dirty heads. You should try and run a head cleaning tape for about 5 to 10 seconds. Then, try your tape again. If it shows signs of improvement, but still is not all better, run the head cleaner for another 5 to 10 seconds. Repeat as necessary (only running head cleaning tape for 5 to 10 second intervals). The cleaner tapes that we use in our shop are Sony brand....they last a really long time and seem to work the best.

Hope this has helped you.

Why won't older Sanyo VCR playback VHS tape on new HD-LCD TV?


Hello,
The problem is not with your TV. I have had this problem as well and the older the VCR gets the harder it is for it to turn the tape. Does your VCR react the same way with other tapes? Try Fastforwarding the tape about halfway and then test it again.

Jvc a 55u plays a movie from the store but I cant get it to tape a regular tape,it's a nice vcr and I have never seen this problem, the moves from the store are played great but when I put in my own tape...


Hi Diane,
Just downloaded the manual for your vcr it says:

1 Press menu

2 press up/down arrows to Function Set then press ok

3 press channel up/down arrows to Auto picture then press Ok or shuttle plus right arrow to set to on or off when using rental tapes set either to on or off to give the best picture

For recording

1 load a cassette make sure the tab on the cassette is intact if not put some cellotape over the hole

2 set channel press up/down arrows then press enter

3 select tape speed sp/ep

4 press and hold rec and press play on remote or just press record on unit

5 to pause recording (cut out ads) press pause on remote to continue again press play

6 to stop recording just press the stop button

hope this helps and reflects in my feedback lol all the best

The same happens from time to time with my panasonic NV-GS11 GC video camera and I have no idea what is causing it. But what I normally do is just turn it of wait 10 seconds and turn it on again. If it stil comes on try removing the tape and see if it is faulty.

How to set up to copying a video tape.


This is a snap, as long as you have a second VCR if not you can't do it.

1. Hook the out put line(s) from VCR1 to the input line(s) on VCR2.
2. Put recorded tape into VCR1 and press play.
3. Set VCR2 to the channel that VCR1 is playing on, it's usually 3 or 4.
4. rewind the recorded tape and put the blank into VCR2.
5. Press record on VCR 2 and play on VCR1.
if you want an exact copy stop here. . . or
6. pause VCR2 when ever something comes up you don't want to record, ie a commercial if you'r re-recording a movie from TV. be for warned though each time you re-record an analog recording, like a VHS tape, the audio and vido tracks get further and further apart. After about the second or third time you re-record a tape you'll hear something before you see it, or vice-versa. I hope this helps you out.
