Question about Televison & Video

VCR won't run.

Hello, have a JVE TV/VCR combo that the TV works great. The VCR will accept a tape and eject it fine but won't run it for playback. It will jog the tape a little when you push the FF & REW buttons but that is all. I also don't have a remote for this TV and don't know if not being able to access the menue would have any thing to do with it. Do you have any sauggestions on what I might do? Thanks!!!!!!!

Hi,

Based on your description, I would suspect that the tape is not fully engaging/wrapping itself around the video head. This is a common issue with VCRs. This is caused by a slipping belt that drives the gears for the spreader arms. The belt is normally located top right of the mechanism/assembly and can be anywhere between 3-4 cm. You need to open the unit, remove the belt and purchase a replacement. The slipping belt would serve "as per sample".

This of course would require that you be a bit familiar with electromechanical components, a bit of electronics and use of common tools. Considering that it might be a bit tricky being a combo unit, perhaps seeking the services of a qualified professional would be your safest bet.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello, My vcr tape will not eject and it was working fine an hour ago. Do you know what the problem is?


Have looked through the manual Sylvania DVC-800C DVD Player / VCR Combo and there is no mention of a tape not ejecting. if its under warranty give the dealer a ring. If dvd`s stick and nothing more can be done then have tried the belo. http://www.ehow.com/how_2036282_remove-dvd-player.html

You're describing what could be a loose or worn loading belt problem, most of the vcr mechanisms used in these combos use one to load the tape and thread it for it to play or record, that is why you have to keep puhing the tape untill the machine accepts the tape and you have to keep pressing play untill it starts the play function.

VCR Not Accepting Certain VHS Tape


I had this happen once and all I did to correct it was to fast forward it just slightly or manually wind it past the leader strip (the clear or white part at the beginning). To do it manually, there is a small hole you must insert a toothpick (or something else as small) to push the pin in and then advance it with your finger while holding the pin in. Hope this helps.

What do I do when my Emerson TV keeps turning off by itself?


I had the same problem with mine turning off after 3-5 seconds. After much research I found a suggestion that on some combo units the vcr part could have a power supply cutout if it is not working correctly. I tried to insert a tape and found that the tape mechanism would not accept a tape. I used a little bit of force and managed to insert a tape. I then played the tape forwards and backwards and the power stayed on! I ejected the tape and found the TV then worked just fine. The power has now been on for over one hour. I hope this give you another avenue to try and fix your problem.

Tv vcr combo


The best way I can think of is to REMOVE the rubber band that loads the tape into the transport unit.Be KILLFULL (careful) the band is right next to the B+ (power supply) or the A\C 120volt
( and if u can find the replacement rubber bands, buy 2 kits)
