It does sound like a bad idler indeed. You did not inculde the model number so I can't tell you if this VCR uses a tire idler or a gear. If you're handy you can probably change it yourself. I have tons of VCR parts left over and if you have the model number I can tell you if I have the idler.

Most likely, the idler wheel is slipping too much. That is the device right under the middle of the cassette that flops back and forth depending on which direction the winding is to go. If it is the type with a little rubber belt on it then that needs to be replaced or if it is a clutch type, either replace the clutch or many times I put a drop of something viscous in the clutch to tighten it up.
This is the most common type of VCR problem and usually happens after about 5 years.
Could also be a broken capstan belt. Take the mech out an look underneath.
Hope Ya Fix It.

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

Look at the following link for more information:

GE VG4270 vcr power turns off quickly when recording or playing a tape


Have someone look inside---if tape is not loading all the way against the video heads or tape does not move in play-rewind-FF then there is a problem with the transport mechanism which is what performs these functions.

My vhs c adaptor wont play my casette. It plays for two seconds then the power to the vcr turns off. Yes I have tried several vcrs


This is because something is jamming either in the adaptor mechanism (nightmare devices at best!) or in the tape cassette.
If you can afford to, escape from this dinosaur technology and enjoy a digital camcorder with a hard drive and/or recording on cards.
No moving parts! No tape tangles, jams or breaks! HD quality!
Well worth considering.

Re: Model PV-4523S


You can try cleaning it with a VCR tape cleaner to see if the pinch roller have build up on there. It could be that the motor isnt feeding the tape up against the recording heads properly and may need an adjustment. If you can take the top cover off, you should be to see what the problem is by the way the tape is being inserted into the machine.
