Question about Emerson EWV401 S-VHS VCR
It might be the mode switch. This tells the computer chip what position the VCR is in. It can go out of phase due to dirt (Just spray the Mode Switch with Servisol video 40 to cure that). Or it can go out of phase due to a mechanical fault. IE: some plastic part has broken etc. The mode switch itself can wear out.
If cleaning doesn't work, or you discover a fault, the mode switch may be then out of position. Setting it up right will almost certainly require a manual. As they very often need to be set up when the VCR is a position which nine times out of ten is not the eject mode!
