Weird one! The only thing I can think that would cause that is that the other things reduce the load on the socket so the VCR can't get enough power to function right. Have you had an electrician check the wiring in your house and inparticular that socket? Otherwise I would guess it's a power supply problem on the VCR. It's not the fuse anyway they would just blow causing no power at all!

My unit has a cassette tape in it. When I power it on, it starts to begin functioning, then, after 3 to 4 seconds, it powers off. I have tried the reset button. Any ideas?


is it the same tape that does this repeatedly. try winding the tape on if it is loose some vcrs will switch off rather than functioning and mangling the tape.

My Sony VCR Model SLV-662HF will not accept cassettes. I am using a universal remote control. The VCR's display shows APC 71501 and 81508. Do these APC codes refer to the VCR or the All In One universal...


The codes are to program the universal remote control to communicate with the Sony VCR. Try programming the universal remote using one of these: 60000 60032 60033 60035
The acceptance of the cassettes may not be related to the use of a universal remote control. If the URC doesn't have the "equivalent" functionality of the VCR's original remote control, you may not be able to use the URC to perform the functions of the original remote control.

You're describing what could be a loose or worn loading belt problem, most of the vcr mechanisms used in these combos use one to load the tape and thread it for it to play or record, that is why you have to keep puhing the tape untill the machine accepts the tape and you have to keep pressing play untill it starts the play function.

Go-Video VCR Problem with accepting/ejecting tapes


As with any VCR, there are rubber parts inside that have become slick. This is a simple repair for any shop. The mechanisms are Samsung ones if I remember correctly. Expect a parts cost between $20-$40. Add in the local labor rate for the total cost. This is worth the repair cost as any replacement would not last anywhere near as long. This is also a normal occurrance as rubber parts harden with age. I have repaired many of these over the years.

VCR Not Accepting Certain VHS Tape


I had this happen once and all I did to correct it was to fast forward it just slightly or manually wind it past the leader strip (the clear or white part at the beginning). To do it manually, there is a small hole you must insert a toothpick (or something else as small) to push the pin in and then advance it with your finger while holding the pin in. Hope this helps.

Vcr powers offf.


This is a sign that one of your tape sensors is not functioning, See if you can get a schematic and use a multimeter to measure the voltages on the sensors to determine if they are working properly. contact me after you have done this and we can begin the troubleshooting process.

Machine not accepting tapes


Just a thought : check if the head isn't blocked ! It should rotate freely (without any friction). I had more or less the same phenomenon (my VCR wouldn't accept any tapes and nothing was activated if I "pushed " a tape in). The reason was here that the VCR wasn't used for a long time (a few months), but it was plugged in all the time (heated up the interior). As a result the head was a-kind-of-blocked. Nothing serious, since I rotated the head manually my VCR works fine.
