You can try taking off the top and cleaning vcr heads with q-tip dipped in alcohol. Thats what my husband did after a child my daughter was watching fed the vcr a juice box. It helped some.

You need to purchase a VHS head cleaner or clean the heads and pinch rollers by hand. remove cover and lid to drive system. you will see all the tape guides, rollers and heads. use Q-tips and denatured alcohol and clean every thing the tape touches. swap q-tips as they get dirty.

Vhs tape stuck in vcr


Some one needs to open it to see if the tape is loaded but wrapped around a post or tangled up.

What usually causes this is the mechanism that moves the tape has a problem---bad or broken belt or rubber drive wheel that moves tape is bad.

Its called eating tapes.

With it apart you may be able to extract the tape and then insert with it apart to see if reels etc are or are not moving in RR and FF first and then in play to see what is not moving.

When I put a tape in, it loads, then stops.


It sounds like the machine needs a thoro cleaning especially around the guide pins and tape head. Also make sure that the tape is not being excessively tensioned in the cassette housing. If it happens on more than 1 tape then thoro cleaning of the transport mechanism in the machine is required. You may need to run a cleaning cycle more than once or get it to a repair shop to do it for you. If it happens on all tapes then it is possible that one of the guides has become worn or bent, or the drive mechanism is at fault or the drive belt has become stretched and will need replacing.

If you have small children I would check it for signs of “peanut butter sandwiches. J

Dvd keeps saying loading but won't play


Sounds very much like you have a either a dirty laser, or a laser unit failure. Put a cleaning disc through the machine, and see if it improves. If not, then you need to either have a new laser fitted, or a new machine.
