    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 vcr tape stuck after power outage


Do you have any small children who have access to the machine? Kids are notorious for posting coins, half eaten biscuits and bits of toys into the tape slot. 1st give the machine a light shake and see if it rattles, next remove it from any power source and remove the cover. You may find something obvious, if not, reconnect the power, being careful not to touch anything inside, and try to load a tape. Dirty heads WILL playback, but will NOT record. The standard for these machines is load spool to erase head, to video head, to soundhead, then between drive spindle and pinch roller and on to take up spool. Has the tape you are trying to record had the tab removed, if so (like a pre recorded tape) it will NOT record until you place a piece of tape securely over the tab hole.

First. Don't have the remote. On a magnavox dv220mw9 model. Plays regular. VHS tapes ok it won't play a recorded tape on our 32 inch Curtis flat screen tv. Where can I get a remote for this. Also wi


You can get a general purpose "universal remote" and program it but difficult and tough to get all of the functions to work. I would recommend stepping up the price paid for a remote to around 100 - 120 dollars. The one I recommend is the URC remote. This one can be programmed with multiple components to a single button. There are many out there other than URC but it is one the I use and have found to be very reliable.

VCR won't record, just ejects tape


You have not mentioned the make and model number of the vcr. Any way the problem is due to end sensor or related circuit. End sensors are photo diods which you can check the shorting with a multy meter.

When i put in a tape, i get a squeeling sound, and the tape won't play.


The only way is to take the top off and watch what the tape is doing! You might even see some object inside which should not be there!

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.

VCR won't load tape all the way


Best to check the tape by comparing it with another tape. There could be damage to the case. Check that you can lift the flap at the front. If all else fails or you find damage on the case of the tape, the tape can be removed and placed inside a new blank tape case. The new tape reels would have to be removed first. It's a bit tricky, but as long as you dont touch the tape itself it should work fine.

GE VG4270 vcr power turns off quickly when recording or playing a tape


Have someone look inside---if tape is not loading all the way against the video heads or tape does not move in play-rewind-FF then there is a problem with the transport mechanism which is what performs these functions.

SONY keeps switching to EP at beginning of playing SP tapes


You may have dirty heads in the vcr---most 4 head machines use two for sp and the other two for lp and or ep.

Tape residue will usually be seen on the drum where the heads are when this happens--also look for the black residue on the tape guides that hold the tape in position against the drum-------

I dont know where the record safety tab is


It's on the back edge of any VHS video tape, it looks like a square piece of plastic which is only attached at one side. Break it off and the VCR can't record on the tape. Cover the hole with sticky tape to record again. If your looking for the tab inside the machine just see where the loaded video lands. Most video tapes with it removed will go into automatic play when there's no tab. Also the VCR will eject the tape if any attemp is made to record on a protected tape.

VCR ejects blank tape only


It sounds like the cassette is not releasing the tape so the machine can put it around the heads. This could damage the machine. Don't use it. A two dollar tape is not worth damaging your vcr. Throw it away.
