Question about Televison & Video
Not accepting tape - seems very slow. Dismantled and wound loading motor by finger - as mechanism just starts to drop down, it has a tight spot which is as far as the tape will go.
Applied external voltage from 2 - 6v. At 6v, the mechanism loads without any problem, but anything less than 5.5v no go.
Not sure of the correct voltage and without a schematic, am unable to confirm the source.
Your average vcr load motor runs a 6 to 12 v dc and the load carriage will generally have tight spots as it loads.
what you will most likely need to do is realign the load mecanisim and check the mode switch first.
depending on the wear of the unit the load switch may need to be replaced.
Some vcr's also have a habit of jumping a tooth on a cog so it would be a good idea to check and see if this has happened.
