Re: reel motor

Try this place -

Part Number VM07

Or just search Sanyo Reel Motor

They do have a Sanyo Reel Motor for the BETA. I do not know exactly if this is for your model. However, I do believe it is.

They are in England, so they list European models. I myself am currently looking for a Sanyo 4400 Beta VCR (from the USA), and I believe the motor listed above will work for me. Try it yourself.

Cassette loads and won't play. Cassette won't eject, or if it does the tape itself hangs inside the VCR. The cassette reels do not turn anthough the head does. I believe the problem lies with the belt...

There si one belt connected to its capstan motor to reel drive gear assembly to reel up the tape. If this belt has either loose or broken, the fault you described here will occur. To change the belt, you have to buy one new with same diamentions. To get it, you must ahve the damaged belt in hand as sample. Just look at its bottom side, and is there any extra sid screwed into, which can be removed to see and take the belt away from the mechanis. There will be one, with every Toshiba VCR. If so, open it by unscrewing the screws, take out the belt, buy a new one and replace it.
Before doing this, make sure that the capstan motor is rotating or not. Just unplug the VCR from power socket, and replug it again. If capstan motor try to rotate even a single turn, it means that it is OK. Replacing the belt should solve your problem.
If you want anymore asistance, feel free to get me through Fixya. OK.

I have a Sony 2300, and also a new model Super Beta that have the same problem. The unit powers up, but when it accepts the tape it will power down within a few seconds.

Open your VCRs top cover, and watch if the take up spool rotates after the tape has engaged to the drum motor. If take up spool does not reel up the tape driven by the pintch roller, the take up sensor will sense it and will shut down the system to prevent further damage to tape. If it doesn't rotates, check belts for loose, and gear wheels for worn out. OK.

Tape stuck in sony uvw-1800

02-874 error code signifies a defective takeup reel. The reel is not winding the tape in, so the deck won't go through the eject procedure. Check the connection to the takeup reel motor; if that's OK, the motor itself may be bad. Rarely, the takeup reel motor assembly will need to be replaced; usually it's a connection problem.

Error 05 points to a problem with one or both reel motors. Not field-repairable for a non-technician.

UVW-1800 SONY VTR - s-reel error

Both these error codes indicate a problem with the supply reel motor.
The first code (02-058) indicates that the reel motor is drawing too much current, which could be caused by a bad motor, defective driver circuit, or even a bad tape. The second code (02-803) indicates tape slack, caused by the defective supply reel motor. FIRST thing to check would be a possible bad tape. Try different tapes and see if the problem persists. If it does, it may be time to find a technician.

Panasonic aj-d230h

without knowing the exact error message, I can only speculate, but most rewind errors I have seen with the AJ-D230 are related to problems with capacitors on either the reel motor driver board or the system control board. the firewire upgrade (AJ-YAD230) is no longer available.

VCR started eating tapes.

When a VCR eats a tape, it can be cause by a couple things.

1. There is a rubber wheel called a "pincher wheel" that compresses the tape against the "capstan". The capstan is a shiny metal spindle connected to a motor. The pincher wheel can become worn and/or dirty (slick) from the oxide coating off of the tape. You can try cleaning the pincher wheel and capstan with alcohol or try using a re-grip solution on the pincher wheel. Last thing to do is replace the pincher wheel. Look to see that the pincher wheel is doing its job by pulling the tape through.

2. There is a small tire wheel called an idler tire. This tire pivots between the sending and pickup reels of the player. Its also used during fast forward & rewind as well as play. If the tire is worn, the tape won't be wound up as fast on the take-up reel as the sending reel during play. This means more tape is coming out of the cassette than can be wound up on the takeup reel. You can try using a re-grip solution on the idler tire or replace it.

Let me know if you need more information as to where to purchase these parts.
Yes - There are cassettes available that are made out of clear plastic that allow you see what's happening. You can also trick the player into thinking there is a tape. There are sensors (mechanical & infrared sensors) that you can bypass.

Good luck!
