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.
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.
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
!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
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!
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.
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
how is the vhs? if is ok, then the problem is the dvd and theres nothing to do with remotes, all point to a bad chip(Ic) and you gona need a tech, if the problem is with the vhs too, then try with another set of cable from the set to the tv...good luck
