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!

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?
