    1) No. The arms are not working. I stopped there. I live in Roseburg , Or. and can not find anyone to repair it . One in Eugene, OR. said VCR's aren't worth it. Don't agree.

This will be a bit difficult because I can't see the unit, but here are a few ideas.
1) Did the arms that pull the tape around the head go all the way around the heads? If not, I would look at the loading motor belt. It may be slipping and not fully loading the tape.
2) Is the tape being pressed up against the pinch roller on the right hand side of the deck? If not, there is a pivot arm that is supposed to pull the tape up to the pinch roller. This arm often gets stuck in the "loaded" position and therefore does not pull the tape up to the pinch roller.

Please update this with what you see and I'll provide more details on how to address the problem.

Toshiba dvr670ku - vhs tape won't play, shuts recorder off


look to see if tape will fully load and if FF or REWIND work, if not a transport problem, drive mechanism not moving the tape, unit will sense this and shut unit off----even a problem in the loading mechanism for the VHS tape not loading the tape all the way will do the same thing.

Vhs is stuck in machine. Won't play and won't eject.


There are any number of reasons why it won't play. The loading basket is jammed, the video tape has got tangled up in the mechanical section of the vcr or the loading gears are stripped. Unplug machine and remove top, [screws side and back] if the tape is spewed carefully remove by cutting it and clean tape particles, for any other problem have a technician check it out.

Canon zr700 won't play tape


That is the pinch roller. If it does not press the tape against the capstan, then the tape will not pass the read/write heads. Replace it.

VHS Tape won't stay in compartment


Going to have to look inside but expect to find that tape is not going all the way into position and having the tape pulled out and up against the drum with the video heads.

If it does not fully load a transport problem exists--drive idler and or belts.

Faintly possible also is something that does not belong inside got in past the door and is jamming it up.

My Sony mini hifi component system is going berserk!! 2 problems: 1- CD system skips tracks and on playing on repeat song, the song skips certain times and jumps ahead of the track. 2- Tape system plays...


Your cd player is fubar and in definite need of replacement.
Tape unit seems to have a mind of its won. Try to reset the electronics to factory defaults. If that has no remedy, since it is a sony< best advise is to trash it. Repair cost is prohibitively expensive.
