Machine will re-wind but will not play or advance -- well it does a little and then the 'end of tape or no cassette' bar shows up on the display. What's wrong?

I start to play a VCR tape and it just stops playing and the machine turns off. This doesn't happen with a DVD, however.


The VCR tape will turn off when spools are Jammed to prevent breakage of the tape. Take out the VCR cassette and put a thick pencil in the each sprocket hole and try winding in the right direction (which means when you manually wind the tape the other spool should unwind without resistance). If you feel resistance the sprockets are jamming. Knock the cassette on a hard surface without breaking it and usually it will free the jam. If does not help then carefully open the the cassette screw and re-position the sprockets.

Why does the tape get caught in my toshiba rd-xv45kb recorder when i try to eject the cassette and the tape snaps


Not sure about the Toshiba but generally when inserting a cassette it is lowered onto the tape drive. There is a device that will register the presence of a tape which used to commonly be a phototransistor or similar mounted on a short post that is covered by the cassette.

Once the machine knows a tape has been inserted, when play is pressed two vertical rods move towards the heads dragging the tape with them enough for it to make contact with the sound head and wrap part of the way around the video head to make playback possible.

When stop, forward or reverse winding or eject is pressed those two rods move back to the starting position and the surplus tape is wound back into the cassette.

If a cassette ejects leaving a loop of tape that can mostly be pulled out little damaged the reeling in mechanism isn't working. If the tape is jammed and comes free only after breaking the rods aren't returning to the start position.

Engineers use an empty cassette case suitably modified so once the vcr cover has been removed the operation can be observed. The problem might be a worn belt or rubber drive wheel or a problem with the hidden linkages - or it might be an electronic problem.

Dictaphone transcriber 3750 won't play, reverse, or go forward. What can I do?


Does anything show up on the display? Like 'No Cassette' or 'End Tape'?

Are you using a foot control? Does the tape move when pressing the buttons on the machine itself? Is the foot control plugged into the side of the machine (and NOT the back)?

Dictaphone ExpressWriter system - tape will not rewind, play, ff


Is this a standard-size cassette unit? Is the model number a 2740 or 2750? When you first plug the power in, does the machine make two clicking noises? Does the display show 'CAS' or 'No Cassette'?

Cassette tape does not advance when playing.


I assume you can see the tape move so its probably not the motor, from your description either the take up reel is not turning (which winds the tape back into the housing) or the capstan isn't moving.
On some models this is driven by a belt feed, on others there is a "clutch" type felt pad.
Without your model number it is hard to give a definitive answer.

Tascam DA 40 DAT Machine ." Loading error "


The DAT machine needs new belts and maybe some cleaning. These fail all the time due to old belts that lose the tension that is required.

Tape won't play


I am assuming that the problem is with just the one tape...

Two things spring to mind - Either the tape has snapped or the reel lock mechanism is jammed.

1) Check the tape. With the cassette the right way up, press the little button on the right-hand end just behind the tape flap, flip the tape flap up and check that there is actually some tape there. If not, it's snapped.

2) With the cassette upside-down and with the tape flap facing away from you, you should see a small hole in the centre of the cassette about 2cm from the edge nearest you. Press something gently in here to release the reel locks. Then give both reels a couple of small turns back and forth (a finger stuck in the reel holes is ideal for this!) Before you put the cassette back into your machine, make sure there isn't any slack on the tape by gently winding any excess back in by turning the reels, but don't wind it to tightly - the moment you feel resistance, stop.

Hope this helps,

Matt

Video tape gets eaten on rewind


Does the machine play tapes well? Clear steady picture and all? No tracking bars? wavering sound? Tape chewing is generally a problem with a bad Capstan Pinch Roller, Associated symptoms are as above. Please do recheck or confirm if any of the above problems are also present.
