    The model number is Toshiba SE-Ro8-108

    can't I fix it myself?

  • Msneedhelp Dec 31, 2007

    the model number is SE-R0108.

    The vcr portion is on the left of the unit and the dvd is on the right side. So, I will open up the unit and then what? Disconnect the vcr portion and then try and replace the belt? I know I should have experience. I just figure I could give it a whirl as opposed to throwing it away or spending money that doesn't want to be spent.



    Thanks for the help.

This is the problem with combo units. When the VCR develops the usual drive problems due to the rubber parts wearing, the whole thing is inop. They are a real pain to work on too. Be real nice to your VCR fix ya shop and they should be able to save your unit.

    What is the make and model?



    Most of these combo units have the VCR under the TV . To
    work on it you have to disassemble and pull out the VCR. It's
    cabling is to short to leave connected while working on it so you have
    to try to fix it, put it all back together, try it, see what else is
    wrong; rinse, lather, repeat .... Best ot have a lot of
    experiance so as to minimize the grief.

    Wouldn't hurt to replace the belts and see if that does it though.

The interior drive belts and rubber drive wheels need cleaning. If you are not a technical person, please bring it to an appliance repair shop to be serviced. You can break the delicate drive parts and sensors if you have never worked on a VCR before.

RCA 8295n dvd-vcr combo starts recording from VHS tape to disk and then stops.


Is the VHS tape a store bought movie or show?

MacroVision and other copy protection systems are put into store bought tapes and discs of movies and shows, and are read by your recording equipment. Once it reads this, it stops recording.

Does the screen turn red before it stops? This is one of the indications that MacroVision is stopping you.
