Question about Televison & Video
After placing a cassette in the unit, the power is shut off after about 10 seconds.
Also, I have noticed the ejection of the cassette is difficult. Sometimes it ejects on command and other times it refuses to move.
Any ideas on what the problem may be?
Your help would be appreciated.

When a tape is inserted or ejected the machine will attempt to tighten the tape by turning the rewind hub for a second, then it watches the counter to see if the fast foward hub turned (thus the tape is tight), if the tape can not turn or the counter sensor is bad then it shuts off (a safety mode to prevent tape damage). So, you could have a bad belt, bad idler wheel, or bad sensor.
Hope that helps...
