Question about Goldstar GVR-DD1 VHS VCR
When I insert an 8mm tape, the display says "Alarm". I cannot play, FF or Rewind a tape.
The alarm message usually means that the tape didn't load properly. Instead of trying to play the tape and destroy it, the unit will just stop. A common problem is that the tape heads don't spin. Without a cushion of air between the heads and the tape, the tape will get ruined. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this is a repair that needs to be done by a tech. The positions of the tape and heads are very touchy and have to be perfect. I would try to find a repair center that can give you a good estimate and then determine for yourself if repairing the unit is cost effective.
Hope this helps :)
