Re: go video gv6060

I have exactly the same problem-tapes will not eject on either deck and I keep getting "ERROR" on front display. I've been asking for help on this for awhile now. I've taken the cover off and can't make sense of anything inside. Is there a video or manual available somewhere where there are pictures describing/showing the parts involved, so I can make sense of it and not ruin anything? Thanks!

Check the drive belt - it's probably stretched and won't operate the mechanism to eject the tape.

Removing VHS tape stuck in player

Only for sure way is to take the machine apart. This is not near as difficult as it seems. Benefit to this is you will find out what caused the jam.

Videotape dubbing deck dead


1. Check to see if a tape is jammed inside (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape).
2. Try changing the video input and/or output source. Many VCRs have two ways to receive and send a video signal (coaxial and video direct). If that works, try changing the cable for the other method to see whether you need a new cable.
3. Clean tape heads (see How to Clean VCR Heads).
4. Open VCR and inspect any belts that are accessible (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape). A drive belt may be broken or loose.

If tapes are getting stuck / enmeshed inside the machine, itis 90% probability) a mechanical problem. Change the Belts, clean all rollers, idlers, and braking pads.
I would suggest that you also replace the Capstan Pinch Roller.

Locate any screws that hold the top in place. carefully slide the top off. find the loading motor. it should have a worm gear on it. turn the gear and after a while the tape should come out. is this only in one vcr in the duel deck? please reply if you can fix it. if that did not work, just let me know. good luck!

Video Go Double deck VCR (Montage), Model #6060/6600/6050

Unplug the VCR, take the cover off, find the motor (probably on the right side of the mechanism) and turn its shaft with your fingers until you have run the tape back out. Now plug it back in and try it again with a scarificial tape. If it continues to fail, replace all the rubber belts in the mechanism.
Hope ya fix it!
