My magnavox ZV457MG9 A loads a vcr tape crooked after a tape was stuck in there and we had to pull it out. any resolution to this?


Sounds like a mechanical issue which wasn't helped by forcing part of the carriage downward (I have seen this a million times and worse) You may also have a timing error in your machine which is causing the shutoff when rewind is selected. The carriage is in the wrong position in relation to the mode switch (for eject/load) and is possibly damaged in some way.

Assuming the damage to the carriage loading assembly is minimal to zero, the whole VCR mechanism will have to be re-timed (carriage re-aligned to the position of the guides and take up arm, etc. so that the entire mech is fully ejected and can load correctly) this can only be done in a service workshop by a qualified technician as it is very time consuming and may involve replacing some broken gears on the carriage (which was probably the reason tapes loaded crookedly in the first place), along with clean up and lubrication of other parts.

The good news is that it is a common thing for these to break (flimsy VHS decks with fragile gears) so it isn't too expensive to correct this but you may be without a unit for a few days while they fix the problem. If the cost of repair is reasonable, roll with it.

CASSETTE STUCK IN VCR WONT EJECT I TURN VCR ON IT STAYS


When the tape has been removed the carriage deck will still be in the wrong position. The cassette tray has to be aligned so that the timing of the tape will detect that there is a tape in the machine. At the moment your VCR thinks there is a tape still in it because the cassette tray is not in the full eject position. This can be fixed by a service technician.

VCR tape loads and runs about 5-10 sec; then ejects


you need to clean the vcr with a cleaner that you can buy at a store. If that doesnt work then you need to take the 4 or 5 skrews out that hold the top on and look at the motor and gears move while you put a tape in and you should spot the problem pretty quick. It'll be with the round metal wheel that turns the tape.

Magnavox zv450mw8 Walmart VCR/DVD recorder. shuts off


on vcr's if the tape is hard to turn the tape will sense this and reject the tape. Try to get a tape that you can feel turn free eaiser. I would rewind it to the middle of the tape so each side is equal and it would make the tape run easier. If it runs ok then the unit is bad and is too sensitve to the pull on the tape. This is all designed in the electronics and there is not much you can do about it then get return it if you can.

Magnavox TV: Somehow the record button on the remote will not record VCR. It ejects the tape and does not record. Please help. Thank you.


Try Using a new VHS tape. If the new tape ejects when press recording, the recording switch inside your VCR could be defective.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill
