The answer is easy take the top off the unit, and with an old video tape try it and watch what the video does. This is the only way really as the causes of tape damage are many, including objects that have got into the works. The only tape chew fault that can be put down to a single thing, is the crinkle bottom or top edge. Which is caused by the pinch roller being worn.
Once you see what it does you can post again and describe it, we are FixYa should be able to pin it down.

SOURCE: vhs tape gets chewed

Dear William,
the rubber belts and rubber capstan need cleaning/conditioning. you can attempt this with alcohol swabs and if you find rubber conditioner (in the past was easy to find in audio supply stores) apply some of this also. if this treatment does not solve, then may need new rubber belt kit. good luck.

SOURCE: My vcr chewed up a tape and now it is not working

If you are a handy person you could first unplug the VCR from the power outlet and remove the cover to see if some of the tape that was chewed up is wrapped around some of the tape path mechanism.
If you know someone techie who has some experience let them look at it and throw them a $20 for cleaning it.
May be best to just purchase a new DVD/VCR .

Awia HV-FX7500K has started to chew the vhs tape & Now everytime you place the VHS in the VCR it reads and ejects it within 5 seconds.


The biggest cause of that is a worn pinch roller. Replacement is the only cure. You could take off the top cover and watch an old tape being inserted. You will soon see where the tape goes wrong.

My vcr chewed up a tape and now it is not working right. When you put a tape in the vcr, "PLAY" will come on the screen as if it is going work. Then it goes to a blue screen and turns off.

This model is the W528 VCR, but my manual includes both models


Does it do this with other television sets? If so, then it indicates the problem resides in the VCR. Rolling as you describe suggests either the VCR isn't producing a clean enough vertical sync pulse in the video signal, or the TV circuitry isn't processing the pulse properly. First, try cleaning the heads (not just the video head, but also the audio/control head which is to the right of the rotating video head. If this doesn't fix the problem, an electronic problem is likely. Unless this is a high dollar unit, repair is not recommended, as VCRs of the last 10 years or so are essentially disposable. I've done some looking on the 'net regarding copy protection, and it doesn't look like this is an issue here.
