I don't know if this model number is correct. I don't see a number anywhere on the unit and I don't have a manual. The player will not play the kind of blank tapes you buy so that you can record programs. It WILL play commercially-produced tapes, though. Obviously, the player works, but why would it reject Fuji or other brands of tapes which I have recorded on a different player?
I removed the protection tab on one of the Fuji tapes, but it still ejected it.
Hey do the tapes play at all? sometimes some tapes recorded
on other machines won't play on others. maybe you need to adjust the tracking on the VCR you are playing it on. If the tape
was recorded on a VCR that is misaligned it might not play back
on another VCR. Also the tape may have been recorded on a
super VHS VCR in et (extended definition) mode if so they won't play on just any VCR. If the picture looks scrambled like a
premium channel on analog cable then it's probably recorded in et.
and if its recorded on super VHS tape it may eject out of your VCR.
They don't make these S-VHS vcrs anymore but people still
have them around. There is also Digital VHS they're not
compatible with VHS either. A VHS recorded in et mode will
play on some more expensive vcrs it should say so on the box

I can't speak to your specific model VCR however, when I managed a VHS tape winding clean room in the 1980's, I had occasion to change heads on several occasions. It is not enough to know how to do it but, you will need special tooling designed for changing heads on your model of VCR. Physically changing the head is easy; a few screws and electrical connection. The problem is alignment. I worked on JVC recorders. JVC provided us (at great cost) an alignment tape. The tape about two or three minutes long. The tape is played and an oscilloscope is used to peak the signal. In theory once aligned, video tapes recorded on any properly aligned machine would play back on any other properly aligned machine. I practice, it did not always work because the of slight variations between different batches of alignment tapes. If one batch of alignment tapes was at the high end of the tolerance and another batch was at the low end and given the slight variations in the alignment process, tapes are not always playable in every properly aligned player. You can align you recorder on one of the tapes you previously recorded but, it will probably not work other players. Try it because at this point you have nothing to loose. You will need to get access to your recorder's service manual to find the test point on the recorder's mother board for your oscilloscope. JVC, and I presume other manufacturers, have waveform photos or drawings to assist you. Good luck!
You can get a general purpose "universal remote" and program it but difficult and tough to get all of the functions to work. I would recommend stepping up the price paid for a remote to around 100 - 120 dollars. The one I recommend is the URC remote. This one can be programmed with multiple components to a single button. There are many out there other than URC but it is one the I use and have found to be very reliable.
when you record something on dvd you have to do what is call "finalize" or "finish" to be able to play on another dvd player. look in the menu of the unit and find a section that has one of these words. you can this to happen manually or automatically when the recording is complete. it can be a little complicated sometimes.
Based on your post/description, you need to get a multi-system TV to go with your multi system VCR if you are going to playback VHS tapes from different regions.
You are quite correct "Plays NTSC tapes to NTSC,
Will not Play Pal to NTSC" to play PAL (even Secam) you would need a PAL/Secam TV. They have a different system for color and audio. In some cases, you can still play PAL but you get it in black & white and picture squeezed from top & bottom.
Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and kind regards.
