Question about VCRs
I have a Sony SLV-N51 VCR which has always worked perfectly until this week when it is having trouble rewinding. It takes a VERY long time to rewind, and the counter sometimes sticks. After rewinding from 1:59 to the very beginning, the counter was stuck at 1:38. It seems to record and play just fine, and fast forward still work, though I think it's slower than it used to be, and I'm baffled. I've used this VCR nearly every day for at least 5 years, so maybe it's just given up, but since it's so hard to find a simple VHS machine these days, I hate to have to toss it. Any ideas?
The belts are slipping. Every 5 years is about right for replacing them all.
