Magnavox philips tv/vcr/dvd/ combo

My daughter shoved a toothpick, a plastic pingles lid and potato chips into the vcr causing the vcr to eat a tape. We got the tape out but the tv will turn back on but shuts back off after about 15 secs. We used the condensed air in a can to clean it but it still won't stay on. What should we do?

On a tv/dvd/vcr combo the vcr is eating tapes after running a cleaning tape - any thoughts?


Good news and bad news: A simple head cleaning and demagnetization will solve this problem normally. The bad news is that unless you have a wet head cleaning cassette (a new blank VHS will usually do the same thing as a head demagnetizer so you don't need one of those) from over a decade ago, you're going to have a tough time trying to find one. Radio Shack possibly?
Beyond that, though, the best way to clean a VCR's heads, capstans and rollers is to physically open them and use rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball. Obviously the 's kind of impossible to do for the consumer with a TV/VCR combo.

Need to know if I can record from dvd to vcr on a magnavox ZV420MWB vcr/dvd combo


Magnavox ZV420MWB VCR/DVD Combo
The answer is YES YOU CAN! Take advantage of one-touch recording from videotapes to DVD+/-R and RW discs or from DVDs to VHS tapes. A variety of different inputs also let you record from compatible camcorders, external TV tuners or cable boxes.

CONSUMER ALERT: This model does not have a built-in tuner for recording TV programs and will not record copy-protected tapes or discs. For more information, call the Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-225-5322 (TTY: 1-888-835-5322) or visit the Commission's digital television website at: www.dtv.gov.

VCR is eating tapes


There are different reasons that a VCR could start eating tapes. It could that it just needs a good cleaning or it could have a mechanical problem you will really need to have it checked out by a service center to determine why. If you have small children I would check it for signs of “peanut butter sandwiches. J

you probable have a dirty video head...you can try a tape head cleaner tape/// they sometimes work.... if not you need to get to the video head and clean it with a liquid cleaning solution---
one of your tapes may have a bad spot on it causing the problem...if you clean it and use the same bad tape again you can cause the same problem again

Vcr eating tapes


When a VCR eats a tape, it can be cause by a couple things.

1. There is a rubber wheel called a "pincher wheel" that compresses the tape against the "capstan". The capstan is a shiny metal spindle connected to a motor. The pincher wheel can become worn and/or dirty (slick) from the oxide coating off of the tape. You can try cleaning the pincher wheel and capstan with alcohol or try using a re-grip solution on the pincher wheel. Last thing to do is replace the pincher wheel. Look to see that the pincher wheel is doing its job by pulling the tape through.

2. There is a small tire wheel called an idler tire. This tire pivots between the sending and pickup reels of the player. Its also used during fast forward & rewind as well as play. If the tire is worn, the tape won't be wound up as fast on the take-up reel as the sending reel during play. This means more tape is coming out of the cassette than can be wound up on the takeup reel. You can try using a re-grip solution on the idler tire or replace it.

Let me know if you need more information as to where to purchase these parts.

Good luck!
