When I owned a repair shop, I ordered VCR parts from MCM Electronics. Try this link:

You can try calling them with the model & make of your unit or you can do what we did. Print out page 22 from their online catalog:

You will see a belt chart on the right. Using a pen or pencil, place the tip of the pen/pencil on the black dot. Using another pencil, lightly stretch the old belt (I know its broken) to determine what the length is. Observe whether the belt is round, flat or square. Finally, Measure the width of the belt. With those 3 parameters, you can then look in the catalog to find a replacement. Good luck!

    I forgot to mention that you can put some scotch tape around the belt to hold the two ends together while you measure it.

    You said that the square belt measured 11.5" (IC) and was .076" square. When you order a replacement, the new belt should be 3-5% smaller than the one you have now to compensate for the old belt being stretched. This would mean that you are looking for a belt that is between 10.9" and 11.1". I found another belt vendor that has a couple of belts that would work for you. Please look at this link:

    SBL11.1 = 11.1" x .075 SQ - (Preferred) Price: $1.10

    SBL10.7 = 10.7" x .075 SQ - Price $1.10

    This company has a $5.00 minimum order or they add $1.50 on orders less then $5.00.

    You can either order just the one belt and pay the extra $1.50 charge or order a couple belts, maybe a couple of the 11.1" and a couple of the 10.7" to get your order over $5.00 and save the $1.50. This way you'll have spares if it ever breaks again.

    Any reputable VCR repair shop should be able to fix a Go Video product.

There is something wrong with the tape running. It will be due to the mechanism itsef. Chang all the belts of the mechanism. The belts can be get in kit form, in most of the electronic spare part shops at your town, just give them the molde number of your VCR. They will give it to you the belt kit. OK.
