Question about GE 27GT616 27" TV
Video is chewing up 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!
