The photo sensor that senses the tape end has blown or dry soldered.It is on the right side of the mechanical deck and senses the transparent end of the tape through the square hole in the video cassette.

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise


Hi,
Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

Video Tapes will not rewind


The belts and idler eed to be replaced. The rubber parts have become slippery. WIth the increased load at the end of the tape, the rubber just does not have enough grip to keep the reels moving.
This should not be a really expensive fix. I usually overhaul units ilke this for about $50 + parts. Figure anywhere from $10-$20 for parts.

VHS tape was playing . After stoping does not play. Other tape will play


The idler wheel (that only drives the tape in play or scan modes) is slipping too much (very common problem). Try verify this by putting the tape in play then immediately press the fast fwd or rewind buttons to scan the tape. On older machines, the idlers used rubber friction tires - on newer ones, a clutch. Either replace the tire or increase the spring tension on the clutch.
Hope Ya Fix It.

Can't fast forward the tape


For Models: CC6254, CC6364, CC6374, CC6384, CC6394 The Counter Memory function, which makes it easier to locate a specific tape segment, has been activated. To disable, press COUNTER R/M for less than one second until M disappears. The tape may also stop because it has reached the beginning or end of the tape, depending of course on whether you are fast-forwarding or rewinding.
