Tape won't play


Can you come up with a more descriptive issue than tape won't play?
At the service counter I used to get complaints like the deck is broke.
I asked what is broke about it- Technicians spend a lot of time trying to find out what is not working on a unit and can miss the problem entirely as it is not stated- all this time costs the customer in the long run.
Technicians want to get the problem and deal with it. Something like it has no take-up, or the speed is off or slow, or the deck will not engage play, or the fast winds do not work. Get the idea?

Power goes off when a cassette is inserted. Tried cleaning heads but it won't even run that. When power is turned back on the cassette is immediately ejected.


Good day!!!

Most common problems
  • VCR refuses to FF or REW and shuts off.
  • VCR shuts off entering PLAY or REC or at random during PLAY or REC.
  • VCR eats tapes.
  • VCR doesn't accept tapes or ejects them without cause.
  • Sound is wavery, fluctuating, or muddy.
The cause for all of these is very often a bad idler tire or other dirty, worn, or tired rubber parts

I have a tape which I'm anxious to play to convert to a CD, but it just won't play ! It will fast wind both ways but on play just shuts off. (It hasn't been played for a long time) It does...


If you wind the tape by hand (with a pencil or screw driver etc.)is the tape easy to turn or move from one end to the other with out any binds? If not It may be wound unevenly, smacking it down on a flat surface a few times on each side will usually free it up. Hope this helps.

Try to use cleaning tape there is must be dust on video head. First use cleaning tape for 5 secound then play you tape if its not ok then use more 5 secound. After that check your recording tape hope fully it will work.

What does ATR mean?


I would guess it stands for Auto Tracking, since it appears only in play mode.

Marantz CP430 fault


Hello,

I have had the exact same problem with a CP430, Whether in Play Rewind or Fast Forward, after a short duration the tape stops. After a lot of Looking & thinking, I noticed that a few seconds prior to the tape stopping, the tape counter stops. (If you dismantle this unit be sure to work in an orgainsed fashion,& you will need some tiny Phillips head screwdrivers too) If your not confident then dont proceed.

The tape counter is driven by a belt, & on the spindle that drives the counter is a magnetic wheel, that runs past a sensor on a PCB.

I didn't have a replacement belt, so dismantled the unit, & chemically cleaned the Belt (cellulose thinners), until no more 'black' came off, in order to eliminate the possibility of tape slip, I also used a stiff toothbrush, to clean the plastic gears that drive the counter, as any resistance, will cause the belt to slip. I think the reset button had also been pushed hard, & bent the mechanism slightly, as it had a tight spot, so i adjusted the spindle, & finally lunricated the Counter gears (Not the Spindle & pulley, as its too close to the belt to introduce lubricant). Upon reassembly, The problem seems solved, the unit now plays records Rewinds etc, without any issues.

Its a tiny drive belt, & any resistance in the drive train, (dust / fluff / as tiny grit even) is enough to cause the belt to slip, & stop the counter which in turn stops the tape.

I hope this helps.

Thankyou

VHS Tape


Possibly the tape is wound too tight and is not actually playing when in play mode.
Also, tapes can be accidentally erased. If it is placed on a speaker or other magnetized surface it will erase itsself. The magnet draws something out of it.
I'm not sure exactly how it works but I know it happens.
Don't give up just yet. Check with your local video rental store... maybe they know a trick that will help you.

Good Luck :)

My VCR is playing too fast


try recording on a blank tape and setting the tape speed to SP (standard play). you should also see options for (LP-long play) and SLP (super long play). I think your machine is stuck on SLP option. if no-go, look for a manual on the web.

Not reading Hi8 tapes


Fidus, I am not sure where you are located but the camcorder you're trying to use now is a PAL version of Sony's 8mm camcorder. If the tapes you recorded earlier were recorded in D8 (digital 8) or 8mm/Hi8 format NTSC, they will not play correctly in this unit. The NTSC and PAL formats are different and not compatible. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
