You can get the belts from many suppliers, try "MCM Electronics". Be sure to clean the pulleys with q-tips & acetone before replacing the belts.

I have a phillips combo tv/vcr working perfectly but when I insert a vhs tape it rejects and switches off. I have tried many tapes all working in my other vcr.the tv is working ok.


VCR ?? With the possible age of the device, there could be a lot of issues with grease that is old, belts that are stretched etc. A VCR senses tape tension in order to prevent eating the tape. Clean the unit and check all the belts.

Toshiba DVR-670 VHS VCR plays then stops


Something is causing the electronics to think that the mechanism is faulty. It will shut down the system if it thinks that, to prevent tape damage. You need to check for any kind of damage to the mechanism. I know you say you have looked, but check again. If you don't find anything. I would replace the VCR mode switch. You might get away with a spray of Servisol Video 40 on it, but if you can replace it. You will need the service manual for that. As they are tricky to set up.

Can not eject video cassette from RCA VCR model VR680HF


Best thing to do here is open unit and have a look--likely the tape is bound up on a post or something--usual cause is the mechanism that rewinds/plays the tape is not working right----when eject is hit it rewinds and puts the tape back into the cassette.

This unit is old enough to have about 5 belts and a rubber drive wheel any of which if broken or bad will do this.

They used to sell a belt pack by model number with the drive idler--pretty easy to replace IF you can find the parts.

My VHS tape will not eject from the VCR. I have a message flashing stating ERR. What can I do to eject the tape?


Hello
The mechanism of your VCR has jammed with video casette tape. If tape ribbon has got twisted around the drum motor head, or the belt that connected to eject [capstan] motor has elongated, this type of fault will occur. Either it will play, rewind, fast forward of eject. Just replace the belts first. In most VCRs the user can replace the belt from underside. Let the tape is there, if it is in, replace all the belts. Belts can be bought from most of the electronic spare part shops at your town. It will come as kit type, each model has its own belt kit, and you have to give them the exact model number of your VCR. Just open the cover of the VCR, and look for tape ribbon twist if any. If it is there, remove it carefully without making damage to any other internal parts, especially to video head. If necessary, cut the tape film. If tape twist is only the problem, it will be rectifed as this twist has been removed. If this also doesn't help you, replace all the belts. OK.

We had just turned on the DVD/VCR and put a video tape in and before we started to play it. It powered off. Now when we try to turn it on it turns off again.


Did the tape remain inside the VCR after the power-off? if so, it is probably one of many causes including:

the power supply may have several short-circuit/leaky components within it, especially electrolytic capacitors and IC regulators;

if the VCR operates mechanically with more than 1 belt, chances are the belt(s) will need replacement (but not likely if the model is relatively recent, i.e. less than 5 years old).

Presuming the unit is idle, no tapes or discs in it, and it reverts to standby/clock by itself, without any action from you, then it would be poor regulation from the PSU.

Being a budget-model, the PSU should be pretty straightforward and not too expensive to fix.

Some tapes will start and immediately shut down


the vcr is on threshold of belt life. try replacing (or cleaning with alcohol) the take-up reel belt. The vcr has a built-in time-out feature to protect the video tape. if it takes too long for things to happen, shut-down occurs.

Symphonic sc1304, vcr problem


Pulley belt stretched, replace. Remove the back cover to tv, slide the chassis out, remove speaker connector, and other ones to allow the chassis to be out away from cabinet to take the metal cover off surrouding the vcr unit. Usually a couple of screws that hold the whole vcr unit in, remove these, lift the unit from the chassis carefully and check the belt as it is stretched and not making tight grip on the white pulleys that perform the mechanical functions of the VCR. When putting back together, and replaced the belt be sure to lift the vcr door inward before sliding the chassis back into cabinet so the door latch will open and close properly, otherwise you put a tape in and the door won't open back up.

This model is the W528 VCR, but my manual includes both models


Does it do this with other television sets? If so, then it indicates the problem resides in the VCR. Rolling as you describe suggests either the VCR isn't producing a clean enough vertical sync pulse in the video signal, or the TV circuitry isn't processing the pulse properly. First, try cleaning the heads (not just the video head, but also the audio/control head which is to the right of the rotating video head. If this doesn't fix the problem, an electronic problem is likely. Unless this is a high dollar unit, repair is not recommended, as VCRs of the last 10 years or so are essentially disposable. I've done some looking on the 'net regarding copy protection, and it doesn't look like this is an issue here.
