You probably have a bad power supply. But as you will learn, repairing any VCR will cost more than buying a new one.

I taped a TV show. But I can't fast forward to see the end part that I want to watch. It just advances to the end.


I'm not surprised that it advances on the end. The VCR doesn't know where the end of the taped programme is. You will have to search manually for it. Start at the end of the tape and rewind a few minutes worth of recording then press 'play' and see what you get. If not successful rewind further and try again, etc,etc. Alternatively you could press "play +rewind" which should allow you to watch the record on what is fast (=x2) rewind. It will help you if you know how long the show was and at what point the tape was when recording started.

Why does my Optimus Model 163 MovieCorder 8 show "tape" blinking continuously and I cannot record or rewind or fast forward the tape.


This sounds like a fault caused by a mode switch problem. The mode switch tells the electronic section what position the VCR mechanical section is in. The mode switch itself can go faulty, or it can be sent to the wrong position if the VCR mechanism is damaged. For example the mode switch might be in eject mode, when the mechanism is in play mode.
It's unlikely that a reset would cure the problem. But you could try powering down the video by pulling the plug and leaving for some time. Maybe even a day.
Mode switch replacement is only possible if you have either done this before or have the service manual. Since most mode switches are never ever set up in the eject mode position. The VCR mechanism will also need to be checked to make certain it hasn't been damaged before resetting or replacement of the mode switch.

Home recorded programs will not play at normal speed. They are visible on fast forward or rewind.


That could be caused by a dirty video head. Try cleaning the video head. You can get tape head cleaning tapes to do the job.

There is a cam to load the tape, and it sounds like that is shot. Probably easier to buy another VCR at a resale shop. Sorry.

VCR ejects blank tape only


It sounds like the cassette is not releasing the tape so the machine can put it around the heads. This could damage the machine. Don't use it. A two dollar tape is not worth damaging your vcr. Throw it away.

My VCR tapes skip or only play in fast forward


If you are recording the tapes in a slow speed, then I would suspect that the tracking pulse is not being recorded properly. Since this is a new VCR, return it for an exchange. One of the recording heads is bad.
