Question about Televison & Video
When you can open it, , try that. First unplug the VCR. Open the device and help the tape to come out. It won't be worth trying to go for a repair of it. Most people are giving away their vcr's or you can buy one second hand for 5 dollar. btw. The tape can be broken, or hooked in the machine. When the tape is removed and it is good, try winding it in the casset, when the content is important to you. To be able to wing the tape, put the cassette up side down end press a pencil in the hole in the middle of the cassette. Then you carefully can turn one of the spools to get the tape in. Try winding both sides, till you see the tape coming in.

The solution was both simple and elementary - why didn't I remember it sooner?
The TV needed to be 'tuned' to the video just as it needed to be tuned for each TV channel.
I selected channel 12 on the TV, went into the tuning mode on the TV and with the video playing, cycled through the TV tuning process until, Voila, there was the video showing on the TV.

Try cleaning the mode switch with Servisol Video 40. When you fixed the carriage also, you did get put it back right, in the correct position, otherwise the VCR will think it's in the wrong mode, even if the mode switch is fine!
