This is all i could find on the internet so not sure if this will help you out.


I've seen similar myself in the past and usually it will be a spring off, a brake lever in wrong postion. May be due to slight mechanism phase misalignment.

You may have dislodged a tension spring on one of the brakes (brake pads press against reel tables), or the reel brakes are stuck on during FF/REW mode. Trouble is you'll probably need a dummy service cassette to see this clearly.

If you had removed the rear loading drive assembly to fit the small belt, on reassembly the phase position of the mechanism is likely to be out, affecting the brake levers. There are alignment holes in the main chassis, the main cam and gears on the bottom of chassis and they must be perfectly aligned, along with the mode switch. You'd need the service manual for phase alignment details as it requires the reference diagrams.
It can be fiddly enough with a full alignment manual, without one it's going to be very difficult to realign it, is that's the case.

If the eject mechanism is belt driven, check to see that the belt not slipping or off the pulley. If gear driven check to see if the motor that powers the eject cycle is receiving power when called for.

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....


When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian

Problems with recording/rewind/fast forward


You probably have a bad power supply. But as you will learn, repairing any VCR will cost more than buying a new one.

VCR plays for a few seconds and rewinds. Now, the VCR plays tape in fast forward mode


Most everyone I know had problems with the tv/vcr combo including myself. I'll never buy one again. I'm sorry you are having the same problem.
