How can I repair a VCR that eats the tape?

VCR's will eat tapes in several different places. The only way to see where is to take off the top cover and watch it doing it. You will need an old tape for this.
The must obvious area is the roller area, with the roller itself to blame especially if the tape has crinkles on the edges. Also look around the mechanism for signs of damage to the plastic parts.

Why did my panasonic PV-9450 eat a a tape?

Hi Melanie -

First, you should keep away from the T-160 tapes as they are thinner and more likely to jam. The T-120 or less sizes are better. Next, use high quality name brand tape - not the off-brands found in the bargain bin.

Do the regular maintenance. All tape is "dirty" (including cassette, 8 track, reel to reel, etc.) and will deposit dirt on the tape heads and "transport" mechanism. Transport consists of capstan and pinch rollers that push / pull the tape in and out of the housing. when dirty, they slip and interfere with the "pick up" of a quality picture from the tape. Use of a quality wet cleaning system at regular intervals (or whenever picture quality deteriorates or tapes jam) is highly recommended. Here are some googled results for wet VHS cleaning systems:

Good luck!

My Panasonic VHS Player Model PV-V4020 is locked up so I cannot insert a new tape.

This will be some form of physical damage to the carriage mechanism, that holds the tape. Sometimes it's a simple thing like the flap getting stuck. But often it's a broken piece of plastic.

I put a tape in and I hear a loud clicking noise and the VCR doesn't play the tape and turns itself off after 8-10 seconds.

first, try another tape. if it does the same thing the vcr is out of alignment. many times a broken lever inside the vhs tape can cause the vcr to shut down.

The cassette is stuck...

the tape is trapped in the mechanisms, you have to strip the VCR down to get the tape out

Re: Model PV-4523S

You can try cleaning it with a VCR tape cleaner to see if the pinch roller have build up on there. It could be that the motor isnt feeding the tape up against the recording heads properly and may need an adjustment. If you can take the top cover off, you should be to see what the problem is by the way the tape is being inserted into the machine.

MiniDV tape stuck inside

sounds like a defective cassette housing, but i have seen problems with jvc decks and camera when tdk or maxell tapes were used. the lids on these tapes seem to get stuck in the cassette housings in jvc equipment. jvc even recommends that tdk and maxell tapes be avoided.

Video noise at bottom of screen, possibly tracking line?

Guide error or just guide cleaning. You have to get an alignment tape from Panasonic. Then you have study the tape path and know wich guides move and roll and which don't. Then you should demagnatise them all. Then a head cleaning is in order.
then you put the tape in and watch the playback it can be either the main entrance guide or more likely the exit guide these are found right and left sides at the top of the drum threaded up. Sometimes these guides come loose over time this is a job for an experienced tech and if you don't know what you are doing you'll never get the deck in proper alignment.

VCR won't push the tape down

The tape load mechanism has a problem mybe a broken gear. If u want to repair it by yourself, removed the tape drive and look for a broken part. You should be able to come up with a part #. Go to: Check out your chassis by the model number. or like always call for service. Good luck!
