Question about Televison & Video
You don't give any other details, but perhaps the following will help.
First, if you haven't tried this already, unplug the VCR for 30 seconds or so to do a reset on the logic circuitry.
Next, check for a mechanical failure, such as a tape stuck in the machine, a cracked or broken gear in the tape load or threading mechanism, or a something bent in the tape carriage (this is what you stick the tape into, and it in turn pulls it into the machine). Anything awry in these areas will mean no operation. A broken gear, or if the gears are just one tooth off will likely cause a no function error condition
Other possible problems include: Malfunction of an optical sensor, power supply not supplying the proper voltages, or a logic circuit problem.
These latter problems will take technical savvy for sure.
VCRs of the last 10+ years are essentially disposable and not economically feasible to repair, so if the problem is rather involved, toss the old rig and buy a new one.
