Tip of my Stanley PowerLock 25' broke off. Is it repairable? Yes the tape slid back into the housing.

You can put it back on but depending on how it broke and how you reattach the measurement will be off a tad.

How to repair a Stanley powerlock 16 measuring tape ?

From the the attached photo I see that you have completely disassemble the tape. This makes the tape almost impossible to reassemble. The spring has to be back wound fully, the blade attached and retracted back into the case using the back wound spring. This requires special equipment that is not overly complicated, however not possible to make for a once off use. I have designed, built and trained operators to use this type of equipment in a production situation, however in my 35 years of experience I have never been seen anyone back wind a spring by hand. Sorry to say but the tape is ready for the trash.

I have a 12' stanley powerlock series 33-212. I want to replace the blade but can't get it open to start

You don't need to open it to replace the blade. You pull the blade all the way out and you will see that it is hooked to a spring. All you have to do is unhook the old blade and connect the new one and slowly let it wind back in. Remember to hang on tight to the spring so it doesn't snap back in before you get the new blade connected. If you do need to take it apart, there should be screws holding it together.

Install tape

Pull it all the way out ... have a nail ready to put into the hole just past the end on the tape, in the spring. Remove the tape. Install the new one (insert the tang into the hole and twist). Remove the nail and carefully allow the spring to pull the new tape in.

I hope this works for you

We have an emerson vcr model ewv 401a. It is new only used twice in the past yera or so. Put in tape, tape was stuck we were able to remove the tape but the vcr keeps turning self off after about10 seconds...

there is an acrylic post inside that directs a light beam to several different places so when the light beam is broken then it tells other parts that the tape is loaded this could be broken off or if the tape broke off inside a piece could be wrapped around a capstan or drive post causing the machine to think it is at the end of the tape and to turn itself off.
