Try cleaing the rolers too. Thats what pinch the tapes. If that don't work the rubber belt that drives it maybe worn. The whole mechanism in a tape player is removable as a whole. All you got to do is remove it and change the rubber belt. They are fasten by screws. It takes a little mechanical ability.

Video tape gets stuck when playing


Did you also clean the rollers and other spindles where the tape also runs? It is not only the heads that will get 'sticky' & grab the tape.

Good luck.

Insert a VHS tape, hear sound, no picture? DVD working fine, both sound & picture. What am I doing wrong?


Likely a damaged video tape got in the unit and blocked the video heads--once blocked no picture but sound will be the case---the heads can be manually cleaned if you know how---The real issue will be to locate which tape was in the unit when this happened--clear the heads and put it back and right back to no image......

Cleaning tapes are only slightly effective--most shops (if you can find one who even works on this gear) will not charge much to clean the heads.

I have a couple VHS-C tapes that drag


This may be caused by a faulty adapter. 1. try playing in the camera. 2. try a different tape. 3. try a different adapter.99% this is a problem with the adapter or the tape. It really sounds like the tape isn't turning freely, which can be caused by a brake sticking, or spindle in the tape or adapter.

Tape is locked inside and cannot eject it. We took to a local camera shop and they said it would cost $200-$250 to help us get it out. I don't need to fix it if that is the case. I just need a player that...


The reason your tape wont come out the camera is because you may have not cleaned the record heads of late, they get tacky, grab your delecate tapes and twined them round the capstan and heads, then yes your little tape is well and truly stuck, trapped like a rat in a cage.
I have managed to get tapes out within a few minutes with a small screw driver and small pin, so I cannot see why they told you that stupid amount of money.

I think the actual tape cassette is the problem not the player. olde tapes play very slowly, dragging, distorted sound. New tapes are fine. What can I do to re-vitalise the old draggy cassettes?


Actually the tape player itself is likely to be causing the problem. Cleaning the pinch roller and tape heads with a qtip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol should do the trick

No more audio


Have you tried this tape in another machine? Your audio and video heads could be getting clogged. A head cleaning tape may fix it or you may need to have them hand cleaned.
If the tape has been stored where it is potentially warm and humid the tape could have degraded.
Unfortunately even the best quality tapes will eventually degrade as the oxide is slowly removed with every pass of the heads.
If a head clean on your player doesn't work, the best way to attempt to retain those memories is to take it to a professional video duplication place and have it transferred to DVD
