Vcr shuts off when i put in the tape


This means the system detected a fault and shut down to protect the tape. Have you tried another tape? Probably needs servicing - hard or cracked rubber belts or idler tyre, or a seized arm due to lubrication drying up or becoming sticky.

I have a Sharp VC-A410 and when I try to press play then nothing happens. I tried pressing play, rewind, and fast forward and it makes the sounds like it is processing my requests but nothing shows on the...


It is likely a defective rubber product, ie belt or idler tire. Here are some links to a company that still carries VCR parts and supplies. Hope this helps.

Need a code for an RCA RCR312w universal remote-Emerson TV/VCR


To see RCA's code list you probably need their website but Emerson is one of several names now owned and built by Funai, who also builds Symphonic & Sylvania.
You might want to try those codes with your set.

MAGNVOX MWR20V6 VCR WON,T ACCEPT TAPE EJECTS WONT LOAD UP


Hello alhertel,

The old idler wheel has been replaced with gears (cheaper and last longer then the old rubber wheel). What you need to do is to gain access to the loader motor and turn it until the carriage begins to move, once the carriage gets to the top and moves outward you should be able to eject the tape with no problem.

Believe it or not VCRs are throw away technology, since it costs as much to repair one as it does to buy a new one. However, there are a lot of people who still hold on to their VCRs.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

Hi,

How does the fast forward work? There is a device in a VCR called an idler tire, which is a flat disc that lays horizontal and has a rubber tire around it.

The idler tire is on a pivot and it pivots between the tape sending reel and take-up wheel depending on whether you are in rewind or fast forward.

I suspect that the rubber is worn on the tire and that the wheel is slipping. You might also have some worn belts as well.

The idler tire & belts can either be replaced or re-gripped using a re-grip solution that roughens up the very top surface of the rubber.

The problem will be the worst when the tape is at the end and all the tape is on one of the reels. This causes the most drag or resistance and if the idler tire is slipping, the reels will go slow and the deck logic will sense that and then stop.

You can find generic belts and idler tires at www.mcmelectronics.com

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Vcr eating tapes


When a VCR eats a tape, it can be cause by a couple things.

1. There is a rubber wheel called a "pincher wheel" that compresses the tape against the "capstan". The capstan is a shiny metal spindle connected to a motor. The pincher wheel can become worn and/or dirty (slick) from the oxide coating off of the tape. You can try cleaning the pincher wheel and capstan with alcohol or try using a re-grip solution on the pincher wheel. Last thing to do is replace the pincher wheel. Look to see that the pincher wheel is doing its job by pulling the tape through.

2. There is a small tire wheel called an idler tire. This tire pivots between the sending and pickup reels of the player. Its also used during fast forward & rewind as well as play. If the tire is worn, the tape won't be wound up as fast on the take-up reel as the sending reel during play. This means more tape is coming out of the cassette than can be wound up on the takeup reel. You can try using a re-grip solution on the idler tire or replace it.

Let me know if you need more information as to where to purchase these parts.

Good luck!
