Question about Panasonic Televison & Video
This Panasonic VCR (model NV-F66A) after many years faithful service and regular maintenance, has suddenly decided to count down through all the channels and then start all over again. Pressing any of the buttons on the machine will arrest this but the function of the button is ignored. The remote is also ignored, unless there is a momentary pause in the channel countdown. Sometimes the only way to turn it off is by pulling the mains plug out. I really want to fix it because you cannot buy a quality stereo VCR with a die-cast alloy transport chassis like this anymore.
There's nothing you can do, the processor has failed, it's stuck in scan mode. Take it to a repair shop, the entire control board must be replaced and finding a replacement part will be difficult but not impossible.

The channel button is stucked closed. Since it is counting down, it is the channel down button. This is also the reason why it is ignoring everything else. Visually check the button and around it .see if there is something causing it to be constantly depress. You can try spraying it with electronic cleaner if you don't see any mechanical anomally.
