Question about Televison & Video
Hi,I have a 'TruTech' VCR Recorder/DVD Recorder Combo and one day, I put a blank cassette into my VCR section and started recording. When it came to the 20 seconds after the recording began, the entire Combo just turned off. When I pushed the power button, it turned on and ejected the cassette. I still didn't figure out what's wrong. I didn't do anything to cause it, and it is just so random. Also when I'm rewinding, fast forwarding, playing the cassette, on about the 20 seconds after I begin the operation, the VCR terns itself off for no reason and when I turn it back on it ejects my cassette. I tried using the ''Cleaning' cassette but it gave no effect. Therefore, my DVD recorder is working perfectly. And it's not a problem with the OTR.
I will much appreciate if any one would know how to fix that.
Try removing the top cover & have a look to see what happens when you put the tape in & press play/rewind etc. Is the take up spool (right hand spool) turning properly or is there slack tape not being taken into the cassette? Are the heads spinning ? I think your problem is more likely to do with the tape not travelling smoothly around the tape path. Possibly the clutch gears need cleaned or the soft brakes may not be dis-engaging properly.
