Re: belt broke

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!

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.

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.

Before you insert the cartage. Look to see if the carriage is all the way back. If it not. The unit is out of sync. A gear has slipped a tooth some where. I don't about this particular model, some vcrs have a belt drive, Take the bottom off and see if there is a belt. It could be slipping or broke.

Push the play button, machine shuts down. what's up ?

Could be a belt has broke or come off. Some vcr's are gear drive, and the gears get out of sync. You can try to un plug the unit for about 2 to 4 min. then plug it back in and it will reset the processor and it will play If the gears are out of sync,thats another story. Hope this is helpful.

Vcr doesnt want to turn casettes

Is it all tapes or a particular tape? The tape might have kinks in it or have too much tension.
