The motor is wearing down. I am guessing that this is a old VCR without a flying erase head. Time to start thinking of a blu-ray player (100$ now) or a dvd player, if you do not have a new 1080p tv.

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.

Rewind/fast forward not working right


Rewinding while playing (usually it's called "review") is different from regular fast rewind. The machine drives the tape differently. This is usually done with a gear, but older machines used rubber belts or drive wheels. As the rubber wears out they slip against the parts they are supposed to drive and the tape doesn't move. If I remember correctly most Emersons had one rubber wheel called an idler that caused this trouble.

If you'd like to try repairing the machine yourself, try a Google search for your particular model and "won't rewind". There are a number of parts sites and forums that may have detailed information about what needs to be replaced and where on your model.

If you don't feel up to doing this yourself, you might want to consider replacing the machine rather than paying for repair. At today's labor rates - assuming you can find a shop that even still takes VCRs for repair - a new combo VCR/DVD machine might be only a few dollars more than the cost of repairing your current VCR.
