T foreward or rewind. kicks out the tape.

You ether got a bad mechanism, something inside Kids like to stick coins/ Grilled cheese sandwich's in the mechanism instead of tapes or you had a band break.

I would say have it looked at by a VCR repair shop or have a look inside yourself for any objects that might be out of norm.

You will never believe what you find in these units specially if you got kids roaming the home.

I need a belt for a sharp vhs

is there a repair shop nearby that can sell u a part? if not get a heavy duty rubber band. Assuming u already know how to take apart the vcr to get to the belt, use a rubber band as close in size to the original. it may not be the ideal solution. but if they dont make vcr parts anymore it'll do fine.

Vcr U 295 serial no 15147 Vcr grabs the tape. I found a small spring which was stretched out and seems as well to be too long. Pls advise what the lenght of this spring should be and where it should be...

well it may not actully grab the tape. but maybe the spring is broekn, take of f top cover of vcr and watch tape as it plays. is the right hand wheel turning. if not thats the probem. the wheel must turn in order for the player to run smoothly, and eliminate tape slack. when theres no tape in it, look between the 2 spindles. is it a gear or an idler wheel with rubber abnd. the rubnber bands are a pain as friction from that turns the right wheel. check the band for cracks or glazing, replace if necessary. u may also need to inspect/ replace the rubber band on underside. there should not be to much play on the underside band either. tip- if no replacement parts are available at a local shop, no problem. use an ordinary rubber band of same similar size to original. it should do.

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....

When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian

How do you adjust the tracking on the Sylvania SRD3900 DVD player / VCR combo? We are unable to watch VHS any longer because the tracking is so off. We are unable to find any tracking controls on the...

tracking should be automatic nowadays with VCR's, so you may have to have it professionally cleaned unless you know how to do it, most likely a store bought cleaner will probably not work.

Sylvania vcr/dvd installation

!st) The antenna INPUT::RF (black wire usually from "cable TV", "Dish TV", even ANTENNA air wave reception,etc.) into INPUT of VCR\DVD, OUTPUT of VCR\DVD to TV RF input.
2nd) If you have INPUT\OUTPUT to what are called " RCA " jacks on your TV, on the front or on the back, then any & all output jacks from VCR\DVD goes to INPUT\OUTPUT of the TV.
In other words:: output of audio on VHS\DVD to input of audio on TV( RCA jacks). Output of video on VHS\DVD to input of video (RCA jacks)
Hope this helps

Stuck tape in vhs/tv combo

Unplug the TVCR, take the cover off, find the motor (probably on the right side of the mechanism) and turn its shaft with your fingers until you have run the tape back out. Now plug it back in and try it again with a scarificial tape. If it continues to fail, replace all the rubber belts in the mechanism.
Hope ya fix it!

VCR DVD Combo works for a while then shuts off

This is the problem with combo units. When the VCR develops the usual drive problems due to the rubber parts wearing, the whole thing is inop. They are a real pain to work on too. Be real nice to your VCR fix ya shop and they should be able to save your unit.

Tape ejected

check the rubber band on the motor that is used to inserts the tapes. it might be lose or getting old. it does not matter what brand it is, the vcr is programed to take all of them unless there is something worng with the tape. any way, check the rubber band. good luck
