Sounds like the belts are slipping that drive the loading mechanism.
May have its gearing out of time but start by replacing the belts

Model abv441 Picture flutters when playing vcr tape


Remove the casing of the unit. You will see a head where the tape runs across. Keeping it powered up, with tape in....There are three screws around the base of the head. With a small phillips adjust the head by turning the screws one by one. If you adjust out too far, the screws will come out completely. Take your time when adjusting. You will notice the picture change with the turning of the screws. The sound will change also. It takes very little adjusting to get it right. Play around with it and it will work in no time...Good Luck

Tape stuck in VCR


could be that you're looking at a blown cartridge for that vcr tape. You may need to cut the tape, to extract that from the unit.

The play head would usually retract when the cartridge is removed, BUT could be compromised by some tape getting into the play head mechanism, and jamming.

be particularly careful with anything pointy or sharp, as the tape head does NOT like those objects near the read surface.

VCR acting strange with audio and playing


It sounds like the audio control head is at fault.
If all prerecorded tapes (movies) play with audio level jumping up and down, is is likely that the audio head is dirty. The audio head in the VCR looks very similar to a head of an old audio cassette player.
First, try to clean the audio head by running a VHS head cleanning tape. The cleanning tape will usually clean the path of all tape mechanisms..

Good Luck

Sharp dv-rw260h vcr/dvd combi


The tape drive and head cylinder motors are having trouble synchronizing close enough to allow the manual tracking to work. Does it work on prerecorded tapes?
Could be:
Too much drag from the tensioning gizmo. (fixable)
Dirty tape path (fixable)
Damaged tape (does it have a crease along one edge?
dragging motor (not usually fixable)
Hope Ya Fix It!

Dont see Video only Audio


The video head may still be dirty even after using the cleaning tape. Take the top cover off. The video head will be the rotating drum about 1.5 inches diameter. Use a lint free cloth- dish towel etc, moistened with rubbing alcohol, and rotate the head a few turns. The actual pickup surfaces are at the bottom of this drum unit- you can see them- there will be at least two.

Anyway, if you look at your cloth, and see some black material, indeed the head was dirty. Let the head dry for several minutes, then do a trial play again. If your picture returns, then good- if not try cleaning a couple more times. Heads do eventually wear out, and other problems can also cause the no video.

Used a wet VHS cleaner and now my VCR doesn't work right. Help!!


The VHS cleaning cassette possibly deposited fiber in the heads in the drum. You may need to open the cabin and examine the heads and the mechanism for foreign matterial.
