How do I stop my vcr (GE mod vg4258) rewinding when I want to stop it b4 the beginning of the tape?


Press "play" and then "stop". This will not hurt the player unless its tape transport systems are broken.

My washer begins the cycle and than stops and does not unlock when i stop it


Possible that fault is connected with the controller unit. The door is not released even after the cycle hass completed and so there can be some delay in releasing the same. You can try and see if the connections from the controller unit is intact.Also make sure the door locks are free.

Canon hi-8 camcorder will not playback recordings. full battery. ejects tape during playback


It sounds like the tape isn't turning and the player thinks it's to the end of the tape and ejecting it.Perhaps when you rewind its drawing the tape up so tight the sensor thinks it's at the end.Take the tape out and see if you can turn it by hand to release the tension.There's got to be some form of release mechanism to let the tape free wheel.Once loose I'll bet it will playback just fine.

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....


When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian

Player - rewind malfunction


I have a trv-58 with the same problem. One way is to press play and rewind while in play mode.Getting back to the first of the tape is a chore.

Machine won't stay on


Hi I'm not familiar with your model, but what it sounds like is a bad "end sensor" on your machine. There are photo sensors on either side of the cassette basket which is what holds the tape in the machine. There is a light source that ends up inside the cassette when loaded, which shines both left and right. There is a section of clear tape inside the cassette at both the beginning and end of the tape. When the sensor on the left side sees light through the clear tape, the VCR knows you have reached the end and goes into rewind, when it sees light on the left side, it knows you have reached the beginning of the tape, and stops rewinding. This sensor is also used in some models to sense when you insert a tape in the basket. In that case, if the right side end sensor goes bad, the VCR always thinks you are trying to load a tape, so it doesn't want to give them up, and when you rewind, it never senses the beginning of the tape, so it will shut down when it reaches the beginning, and could even snap the tape. I'm 99% positive that is what is wrong with your VCR, it is an easy fix, but unfortunately, you won't likely find a repair shop that will sell you the proper sensor. I hope this helps in some way. Good Luck!

All of a sudden some of my tapes will not playback and others will??


I have been experiencing the same problem with my Panasonic PV-GS120. I don't know the root cause or real solution, but I found if I keep playing the tape, rewind->play->rewind->play, eventually I would get the image back normal. I think I would try to clean up header with a header cleaner to see if it helps or not. If not, I plan to submit a request to Panasonic support to check out possible solution. Good luck.
