Question about VCRs
I have an akai AVR250 VCR which I have owned for about 5 years, and until recently has not given me any strife. However, when I put a tape in it, the player now stalls for 10 seconds, then goes to standby with "Err" in the display. By pressing the power button again, the display powers off, then returns to standby, and after 10 seconds, ejects the tape on its own, once more with the "Err" on the display.
I have already tried using different tapes, to no avail. Can anyone help me with this problem?
Cheers in advance,
The mean time between failure for the rubber parts in a VCR is about the same as the rubber parts on your car - about 5 to 7 years. You are due for a belt job.
