Re: VHS tape

Is it a specific one particular tape? Or is it that all VHS  tapes that you put into the VCR or Rewinder do not rewind? Do clarify

Panasonic PV-7400 VHS VCR seems to be stuck in Memory Rewind Off mode. I power on, it attempts to rewind (though there is no tape in there now) for about 20 seconds, then powers off. I've pulled

Most of these problems are caused by a faulty mode switch. If the mode switch has gone off of it's true position, then the electronics might well think it's in rewind mode even in the off position. Sometimes it's just the switch that is faulty, but sometimes damage to the mechanism has thrown off the switch.

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.

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....

When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian

It could be that there is a separate motor for the rewind function, and it may be in need of replacement. Also you should check the belts for stretching/wear, as they have a direct impact on the speed. Also, most new VCRs have a function that the tape rewind slows considerably when it senses that its close to the beginning of the tape. Its very possibly that your VCR has a defect in that sensing mechanism. Good luck
