Question about RCA VR349 VHS VCR
Tape loads, then stops and ejects, but the tape doesn't retract into the cartridge. The loose loop of tape then gets hung up on the mechanism, making tape removal difficult.
This is the most common VCR problem of all time. The piece call
the idler tire is worn down and needs replacing. This is the
little wheel in the mechanism between the 2 reels that flips back and
forth depending on which direction you've told it to go. It has
a rubber tire around it to allow some slippage so that the take up reel
can go whatever speed it needs to as it accumulates more and more tape
on it as it goes through your movie. Sometimes this tire is very
difficult to get at so it isn't something you should try to do yourself
unless very mechanicly inclined. Replace the rest of the rubber
belts while you're at it.
Hope Ya Fix it!
