Question about Sansui COM0953 Combo

1 Answer

I have a Sansui 9" AC/DC combo TV model COM0953 and the video cassette player will not accept the tape and I have taken it apart and there is a special spring that I cannot determine where it came from. Is it possible to find a parts breakdown on this model so I can replace the spring to its proper spot?

If it has a vcr built in most likely it is Symphonic/Funai made.

For the most part there were never any paper manuals for these units

A photo of the spring and mechanism might tell me where it goes.

What happened a lot in these units is there is a rubber belt that drives the tray and loads or unloaded the cassette. It is very small and if it does not move the mechanism every time the unit is turned on the unit will shut down. It is usually located on a pulley on the back right side of the mechanism.

What happens here regardless of if the unit is used or not is it and another belt get old and stretched and cause problems.

The real problem is the tiny belt also drives the mode gear so replacing it has to be done in just the right way.

My guess is the spring is from down between the two reels that turn the tape and it keeps getting popped off because one of the two belts are bad.

Let me know if you have questions or a photo of the mechanism. I worked on a lot of these when the were first made.

I would like to make a copy from my video tape to a DVD How do I do it?


Turn on the TV and set it to the video source to be able to easily see the menus as you set up the dubbing process. Put the source tape you want to record in the VCR. (Copy protected tapes will not be dubbed.) If you want to avoid dubbing from the DVD to the VHS tape, remove the erase protection tab from the cassette. Put a compatible recordable disc (non-finalized disc, unprotected disc) in the recorder and make sure there is sufficient available capacity on the disc.

Press Rec Mode/Speed to set the speed (SP, LP, SLP, or XP). Press DVD/VCR and set the unit to VCR mode. Confirm the mode with the indicator light on the unit. Press Dubbing and the mode should switch to DVD automatically. Select Yes (with the left/right arrows) and press Enter to start the duplication. The unit should indicate the VCR playback, dub and DVD recording are in progress. Press Stop to halt the dubbing process or it will stop when the unit reached the end of the tape or the disc is full.

The dubbing button is only on the remote control; if your original remote isn't working make sure that your replacement remote has the feature. Remotes.com often has exact or substitute remotes with the matching features. Search just by the model number not the brand.

BTW: the manual is available here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/26967/SANSUI-DVD-VCR-Combo-L0311311?brand_name_search=sansui+VRDVD4005 .

I hope this helps.

Video playback


this must be a vcr tape you are talking about thats in a tv
well the reason is the tape may not be working correctly inside ( tape not going at proper speed for tape sensors to reconize as correct , this is due to disc clutch pads that are starting to slip because of to much strain on the pull of the tape
gears will need to be lubricated and rubber pulling wheels will need to be cleaned

Sound


if your tv has a headphone jack and your truck has a cassette player, they make an adapter in the shape of a cassette with a wire running out of it and a small jack that will hook into the tv and you should get sound out of your truck stereo. if no cassette player, then they also make an fm transmitter that will hook into the tv and then you tune your fm radio to the frequncy required. radio shack or some place like it usually carries things like this.

"DEW" is on screen and VCR not working


When the DEW appears leave tv on for several hrs at room temp. The heat from the picture tube will help remove the moisture.
