The belt drive unit is only ran by a SMALL rubber band. It may be that the actual band is broken or the motor itself is shot. Unplug the stereo from the wall and remove the cover CAREFULLY, look in at the tape drive and check the "RUBBER BAND" first.

I took my Pioneer SX-450 Receiver and Pioneer CT-1040W Tape Deck apart to move it. Put it back together. Now can't get a tape to play.


After putting a known good tape in the deck, push play, if the tape doesn't move, try rewind and FF. If nothing happens, the deck has a problem. I assume this is a cassette deck. If so, I always try the thrift stores for a new(used) one. There are good bargains there.

After a long period of non-use,of my VCR, I recently tried to play a new VHS tape. It loaded properly, but refused to play it.


Could be the belts have become too old for the unit to function. you could try to take the unit apart to clean them.

Cannot play a VHS tape. Push in and pops out.


The belt on the loader motor is slipping. This causes the tape to not completely position itself to allow the tape to load around the drum. The machine senses this and ejects the tape.

A problem has occurred the last time the ps3 system was last used, and the system did not turn off correctly. after that thing pops up after i turn it on i press yes send to ps3 place and then it sends in...


Try a video reset first.

While the PS3 is off (red led)

Hold down the power button until you hear the second beep, quickly release.

Let me know if that solves your problem otherwise it's a corrupt file system.

This is a common problem with alot of Sony CamCorders...The solution is simple.....GIVE IT A WHACK!!!

Seriously, Take the battery off the device, Give the camera a smart "smack" on the tape side of the unit and power it back up.

works in 90% of cases!!!

I have a Sony SLV-EZ717


It sounds like the taped program was recorded on a different speed. The other VCR that you are playing the taped program may not have the speed needed to play it correctly.
Next time when you record a program try to make sure you use a speed that will be compatible on both VCRs.
For example a tape that last 120 minutes, using the different speeds will give the following recording times.
SP means "Standard Play" >>>> 2 hours
LP means " Long Play" >>>>> 4 hours
ELP means " Extra Long Play" 8 hours

Older VCRs have all the 3 speeds but newer ones only have SP and ELP.
Hope this helps.

you have probably bent the tab that holds the tape end sensor or its light. The tapes have a clear section at the end of the tape and the light shines through to the sensor to tell the unit that the tape is finished. The light should not pass through the recordable part of the tapes. If anything is bent the light may shine on the sensor and tell the unit you're at the end of the tape and to shut off. Some units have a tape tension sensor also that tells the unit that the tape is broken and to shut off. Only way to know is to remove power and take it apart and look for anything that may be bent. Stay away from the rotating head assembly and the posts that the tap travels on. Do not apply power with the unit open. Do not load a tape and remove power as some units freeze in the loaded position and will not load new tapes unless manually placed back in the unloaded position.

VHS player stops after 5 seconds


Hi, Based on your post/description, sounds like a mechanical problem with the take-up spool. As this would involve mechanical diagnosis and repairs, your best bet may be to seek the services of a qualified professional. Should you want to venture do-it-yourself, you need to remove the top cover and expose the inner mechanism of the VHS tape player. Of course the usual safety precautions when working with electrically powered devices. Once the inside mechanism is exposed, you will notice that there are 2 spools where the tape would be sitting when fully loaded. The right side is the take-up spool responsible for winding the tape when played or fast-forwarded. When fast forwarding during stop-mode it is direct gear driven however during play and fast-play, the take-up spool is driven by a clutch sandwiched between the top portion and the bottom wider portion. You need to disassemble the take-up spool. It may be held in place by hard press, force-fit, lock or retaining clip. Normally there is a spring near the top. Upon disassembly, you will notice the clutch which is a white fabric/cloth/cotton appearance. This has to be replaced. Probably available in eBay. In my location, such spare part is not readily available and we have to make do with work-around (not necessarily technically right but as long as it works and for your info only). Things we try:, Stretch the spring, the idea is to put more pressure on the clutch when assembled back; roughen the contact portion where the clutch mates with the spool assembly; worst case scenario, forget the clutch, dab a drop of rubber adhesive on both sides of the clutch. In certain models/versions, it is possible that a slipping belt is causing the problem. In some instances, it could be the driving motor. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
