My Aiwa HV-MX100 vcr has not been used in about 18 months. When I insert a tape, I can hear a whirring noise, but the tape will not eject properly. Also, the power will not shut off completely - the...

Is your VCR fixed?
From what you have written, I understand that you have not used the VCR for many months. And since you are hearing a whirring noise, the eject motor is working, but the belts are spoilt, and are slipping. Hence your problem. I suggest you open the top cover of the VCR and observe the eject mechanism. As suggested, you will - in all likelihood, observe that the belt driving the eject gears is slipping.

Aiwa HV-MX1: tape won't eject from VCR and it switches off.

Turn over the VCR. Unscrew the base. You will see the 3 belts. Turn the rightmost belt clockwise or anticlockwise (don't remember) but you will see the tape hold mechanism moving down. Once it is all the way down, you can eject the tape out.

You may need to replace one or all 3 belts. This is being caused by belts being loose.

hope this helps.

AIWA VCR model HV-MX1problem

with the unit unplugged take the case off and look on both sides of where the front of the tape would set, you will see two towers, one is a light and the other a receiver,check to see they are plugged in and not obstructed.Also there is a switch that the tape pushes when its all the way in which might be stuck,click it a couple times with your finger.This might help, there are other more complicated things which could cause this problem but mechanical problems are more likely.

When safe show on the screen, it actually means that the child lock feature is on.

All you have to do is press the child lock button again on the remote and it should flash "OFF" on the screen.

Hope you have the remote :)

How to Program Local made Universl remote for aiwa VCR

I am in Pondicherry, India.
Can you tell me the model No of your VCR. If the problem is only No colour, then it is likely that you have set the Output to a different
Broadcast Standard. India has PAL B/G, and it could be that you have accidently set the Selection to MESECAM or SECAM?
Do let me know if this works out? As for programming a Universal remote, You must read the instruction 'booklet' which comes along with it. There you have to see the List of VCRs, select AIWA, and feed the various codes one by one, and try and see if the code works on the VCR. No shortcut!

Aiwa HV-MX100 multiformat VCR won't power on...

Too little information to give any information / help / opinion. What actually happens? Does the Display come on properly? Do you hear any mechanical Noises? Like a motor whirring? Are you able to load a cassette into the machine? Does it get ejected automatically? As you say that the machine switches ON, I assume tyhat the Power supply cicuits are Ok, and this leaves us with the possibility that there is a mechanical problem.Is it that the machine was not used for a long operiod of months or years? If that is the case, in all probability the belts are damaged / broken / loose. I really need more info, please.
