Question about Goldstar GVR-DD1 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Goldstar GVR-DD1 The motor which drives the FF. RW. and play tries to but will not work. This motor will work when tape is ejected. Is a diagram available of view of bottom of player. It is impossible to get a visual look since the circuit board is adhered to bottom of player. Since the arms to move tape up to head for play position do not move, I am wondering if there may be a missing/broken part, timing of cams, or broken belt. Could you help? Mark

Even the service manuals are pretty bad at helping with mech problems like this. You just have to be very mechanically inclined to figure it out. A lot of VCR mechs are very similar however so this is where experience helps. You do need to get the circuit board off however. Usually a few screws up from the bottom. Pretty smart huh! - put the least reliable parts (the belts) in the hardest place to get to. Look carefully for little broken plastic pieces. gear teeth etc. Since the motors work some of the time, they are not the problem. Could be the mode switches are out of time. They are a set of switch contacts buried in the mech which tell the brain what position the mech is in. Move the load motor by hand (I use a 5V power supply with a fwd/rev switch so I can run it back and forth and watch the action.
Goldstars are good mechs. They make a ton of them and pretty well get the design bugs out, but of course those little plastic parts break easily.
Hope Ya Fix It.

Error Message on display


The alarm message usually means that the tape didn't load properly.  Instead of trying to play the tape and destroy it, the unit will just stop.  A common problem is that the tape heads don't spin.  Without a cushion of air between the heads and the tape, the tape will get ruined.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this is a repair that needs to be done by a tech.  The positions of the tape and heads are very touchy and have to be perfect.  I would try to find a repair center that can give you a good estimate and then determine for yourself if repairing the unit is cost effective.


Hope this helps :)

Eating tapes


This is the number one failure mode for a tape machine.
One drive is used to pull the tape out and run it across the heads very accurately, and another drive is used to pull the tape back into the cassette. This one uses a clutch to allow it to slip so that the takeup reel in the cassette can vary in speed depending on how much tape is on it. After a few years, it slips too much and can't pull the tape in fast enough. (older units use rubber idler wheels to do the same thing)
Either tighten up the clutch, or replace the rubber wheel.
Hope Ya Fix It!

VHS system malfunction


VCR's automatically detect what speed the present tape was recorded at. It only gives you a choice of speeds when doing the recording. If you are saying that it won't playback a tape recorded in one of the slow speeds, it is most likely because VCR's with more than two heads use different combinations of them in different speeds and the ones used for slow speeds are maybe needing cleaning. If this is the case, the vcr will seem to be playing OK, but the video playback will be bad.

Replacement Remote Needed


you might try http://www.replacementremotes.com/store/prodthumbs.cfm?categoryid=121. or, you could possibly obtain a universal unit. As you probably know, the low cost universal ones may not have the advanced programming functions, such as timed record. Perhaps a higher dollar one would. Beyond this, Ebay, Google search...

When 8mm tape is inserted I get an immediate "alarm" display


Is this a player or a camcorder?
Being a long time used unit it probably needs its rubber parts serviced which is consistant with your problem.
