    2006 Model NV-VP33, DVD / CD Player, Video Cassette Recorder / Player.
    After inserting a cassette in the VCR, it plays for a second or two then stops.
    Everything worked perfectly till a few weeks ago.

    Useless advice - any tape that is placed in the VCR begins to play and then stops. Why?

  • wordking Apr 16, 2008

    That's better!! Looks like I'll have to take in to a service centre, not a good advert for a player less than two years old. Thanks

    2006 Model Panasonic NV[vp33 DVD / CD Player, Vdeo Cassette Recorder Player. Tape runs for a second or two then stops. The tape's content shows briefly on the monitor. There is no spin or whirr. Just the click of the tape stopping.

Hi,

Assuming that the VCR powers up and the display shows the usually indications indicating no electronic problem, then it is possible that the reason the VCR won't play is because of a mechanical defect.

If the tape will load (slide in even if only partially) but won't play (and auto shuts off), the most likely problem is the belt in the loading motor. it could either be slipping or cut.

If the tape will not even load, then it is the frontend of the loading mechanism.

If on the other hand the problem is electronic, then you would need a service manual or at least a schematic diagram to diagnose. This of course would also require that you be familiar with electronic components and circuitry, the use of a DVM and a soldering iron and safe working practices involved in working with electrically powered devices.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Can you please be a little more specific on this problem please.

First, brand and model of the vcr.

Next, what exactly is happening? (example: can you load a tape and press play and have it try to run or won't the reels spin, etc.)

We need you to help us so that we can help you. This is like asking someone to buy something at a store that they need without telling them what. Thank you for using fixya, will be waiting for your reply.

    If both reels are moving, and the tape isn't being eaten, then I put
    money on a very common thing on those; Reel sensors! It's a bit tricky
    to replace them, but I bet that's it. They're phototransistors located
    on the bottom transport PC board, and they pick up mirror squares on
    the bottom of each reel. As the reels turn, the mirrors pass the
    phototransistor and tell the VCR that the tape is moving.

    Please let me know if you need any additional help

Make sure it is pluged in to the wall
Make sure their is a tape in it
make sure you hit the power button on the VCR itself, not the remote
make sure you hit play on the VCR it self, not on the remote

Hello, The problem could be dirt on the surface of the lens, you can clean this by removing the cover of the dvd player . Gently use a dry cotton bud to clean the lens because the lens is fragile. Insert the disc plate into the dvd player and press play, if it does not play try the second method. Ensure the cover of the player is open, connect the power plug to the mains socket and observe the lens if it beam a red light, Also check the ribbon cable use to connect the lens to the printed circuit board, then gently clean the lens with a dry cotton bud , insert the disc plate and press play to see if it play. If it does not play the disc, then this require a change of the lens

I have a 1995 nagnavox tv and i cannot figure out how to hook it up to a dvd player. There doesn't seem to be a hook up of any sort. help me?


If you have a VCR you can run the video out from the dvd player to the input of the vcr. then run the vcr coax cable to your tv. You have to set the tv on channel 3 and the vcr to line in. You set the vcr to line in either by scrolling the channel down button below ch 2 (the display will say "LINE") or find the "input" button on the vcr's remote control and scroll through the inputs untill you see your dvd movie playing.

Older ge tv but cable ready-no remote.... need to find channel to play dvd player on.Recently connected dvd player but can't play a dvd.The tv is connected to a cable box.


Hey wegodsky,

If you're not able to find the right channel on your TV to use your DVD player, you may want to try changing the TV's input source instead. Many TV models will require that the TV be set to an external antenna in order for any other device (like a VCR or DVD player) to function correctly. This can usually be done by pressing the menu button on the TV itself and selecting an option similar to "Input," "Source" or "Antenna" if you do not have a remote control for your TV.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
