Desperate: Need Part For Sony SLV_940hf

Posted by gary777 on Dec 01, 2007 Report abuse

Hi, I bought a sony slv 940 with remote on line, I was told it was working perfect. Well I had to buy the right remote, clean it, and I found a broken part on the cassette holder, I have searched the web called sony, trying to find the part, no luck, then I found this group. The white plastic like part is located on the right side of the cassette tape holder it is a type of rocker arm, it holds a round spring with straight ends that fit into the rocker arm, it is about a inch down from the the top of the cassette holder on the right side, it fits into the white plastic like housing of the cassette holder. You can not miss it. I am looking for someone who may have a non-working 940 and will part it out. I will buy the part, it just pulls out, or whole cassette holder, there are just four screws holding it in. or please let me know where I may locate this part, I do not have a service manual for a part number. That was to be included also but....Please see jpeg

    I have the same problem. That little part also broke in my 940HF. Because of that, the tape doesn't sit right when loaded. Can anyone help?

Where can I get a remote control for the Sony VHS SLV 685HS?

You can get a duplicate of the original remote (new or used) here: for the 685HF. I can not find the SLV 685HS is not a valid model that I can find at either Sony Parts or

However, a refurbished remote for the SLV685HS is listed at: . (E-bay also lists a few remotes for th SLV685HS; these listings may or may not still be valid.)

I hope this helps.

Sony SLV-940HF automatically ejects tape.

1st try a different tape.
If it's the same, listen carefully for unusual noises, clunks, grinding, etc. when the tape goes in. Is something binding?

With the tape out, look inside the door, see if you can spot anything in there that shouldnt be there such as a small toy, money, playing card, sandwich, bits of food? Those are the usuals.

Turn the vcr upside down and holding the tape door open, tilt it so if there was a foreign object in there, it would fall out.

SLV 940 HF

Is it having trouble either loading or ejecting the tape? If so, then something is probably awry in that mechanism. Take the top cover off and watch a load or eject operation. If tape isn't fully loaded, and tape threaded, then an error condition will result, as will be the case if it won't eject. Causes include a broken piece of the load mechanism (also called cassette carriage or carriage mechanism), broken or cracked gear. If the mechanism is gear driven, timing is critical, just being out of time one tooth will foul things up. There are often marks on the gears which must line up exactly in a particular mode as specified in manufacturer service literature. Most VCRs since the early '90s are disposeable, very prone to breakage, in contrast to early units which were made like tanks, costing $400 plus.

Sony SLV-940HF VCR Will not accept tape

Dear Rob, There can be two reasons for your problem.Let us consider the simpler and most likely cause.....Belts!!! Unplug the Plug from the Power socket. Open up the top and bottom Panels.Check the belts. Most likely you will find a belt has snapped ( a 80% possibility) or become very very loose. Also check the Tape Loading mechanism,there is a small belt which connects from the Loading motor to the Loading Mechanism. Replace the belts as a entire set. Let me know if this worked out. Good Luck.
