Power goes off when a cassette is inserted. Tried cleaning heads but it won't even run that. When power is turned back on the cassette is immediately ejected.


Good day!!!

Most common problems
  • VCR refuses to FF or REW and shuts off.
  • VCR shuts off entering PLAY or REC or at random during PLAY or REC.
  • VCR eats tapes.
  • VCR doesn't accept tapes or ejects them without cause.
  • Sound is wavery, fluctuating, or muddy.
The cause for all of these is very often a bad idler tire or other dirty, worn, or tired rubber parts

After watching a pre programe tape ...while rewind at the end it makes noise and eats my tapes


I love these kinds of problems. Whenever a VCR eats tapes, it sounds like a combination of one or more things including;

mode switch;

worn/glazed/shiny pinch roller;

poor back tension on the reel tables;

stretched belts (if more than one belt is present in your machine).

Unless you have some technical knowledge of basic VCRs, I do not recommend that you undertake replacing any of the mechanical components yourself, as alignment/timing is involved. The replacement of those parts relating to the deck (if required) should be done by a professional service centre. They would have the necessary tools and facilities to do this.

I suggest that you take the unit to a workshop where they can examine it thoroughly - but get a quote first if you have any doubts about the likely cost(s). That way, you can decide afterwards if it is economical to repair the VCR or not. Up to you.

It could be something really simple, you should not need to replace the whole combo. Fingers crossed.

The vcr on my sylvania vcr dvd combo DVC840E eats my vcr tapes. What can I do


Clean the tape path, that any thing the tape come in contact with. there is a roller that presses the tape against a metal guide. The roller should be dull not shining.

Vcr player eats tapes and will not eject casset tape


It sounds like either the take up spool isn`t turning because the motor has failed or there`s something inside stopping the spool from turning or there may be something sticky around the skirt of the video head assembly. All I can suggest is remove the top casing and place a tape in the machine and watch what`s happening, Hopefully, you may find a child's toy or something similar under the cassette or the deck. Those labels that you place on tapes were notorious for coming off and finding it`s way into the mechanism. Ian

Dvd loads - says notformatted


You can try taking off the top and cleaning vcr heads with q-tip dipped in alcohol. Thats what my husband did after a child my daughter was watching fed the vcr a juice box. It helped some.

VCR Eats the tapes


Often the "Pinch Roller" type Tape Drive can "Dry Out" and it slips. this causes the tape to get all screwed up.. It could also be a belt that turns the capstan.. Or even a thing called the "Mode Switch" In any event Ya probably be best to take it in for repair as it's not really a "Homer" I suggest ya get a quote and an explanation, and see if it is economically worthwhile?

VCR eating tapes when attempting to rewind


VCRs are so cheaply priced these days that it's not worth the time and trouble to fix them or have them repaired. If you fix one worn or slipping belt, another problem isn't far behind.
