Question about Maxell VHS T-120 Videotape VHS Tape

1 Answer

Videotape twisted A videotape I was viewing became twisted at the end of the rewind. Is there a way to release the spools so that I can loosen the tape enough to be able to untwist it? I know how to open the hinged slat over the tape, but I don't know how to release the spools.

Underneath, between the spools, you can use a pencil or such other instrument to push in the part that holds the spools in place. Then loosen the tape as needed.

How to reload pull cord spring assembly?


not it not easy but can be done

found this on a web site should tell you what you need to know

john


I removed the screws from the bottom of the unit to separate mechanism that held the blades from the engine. This revealed a clutch on the end of the drive shaft. I removed the springs so I could remove the two halves of the centrifical clutch. I did this so I could then remove the mount these two halves were around. This mount had an arrow and the word 'off' on it. I placed a block of wood against this mount and hit the wood (protecting the mount) as to spin off the mount in the direction of the arrow. A few sharp licks with the hammer and the mount started to come off. I removed it by hand then. Next I removed screws and spark plug so I could get the green housing off where the cord was mounted. Inside this housing is a white spool the cord was on. Becareful with the next step. To replace the cord I removed the spool the cord is wound on but be careful, under the spool is a metal housing under which is the spring that rewinds the cord when you pull start the unit. The end of the white spool that is out of your sight meshes with the end rewind spring. If you pull too far up on the spring or the metal housing that keeps the spring in place you will have spring everywhere and possibly toward your face becareful. So Loosen the two screws and turn the tabs out of the way that hold down the white cord spool. Slowly work the white cord spool off. Replace the cord on the spool making sure you wind it in the proper direction. Then replace the spool and mesh it with the spring. Turn the spool to wind the spring and retention the pull cord rewinding spring. re assemble unit. Good luck! This is not a step by step but I believe it will get you what you need.

Having trouble replacing trimmer line


Hello. I just answered a similar question not twenty minutes ago. Hope this helps.

Please read all the way through this before beginning to actually rewind the spools.
1. Pull the spool off of the head. Clear the dust and debris out.
2. Note that it is actually two spools that are separated by a disc, and that the disc has a slot in it. The outer spool is the spool closest to the bump head, and the inner spool is the one that fits closest to the machine and has notches in it. If you turn the spool so that the inner spool base is up, you will see that there are decimal numbers next to the notches. The decimal numbers are your line size(s). I say sizes here as some machines will accept more than one line size. You will also notice arrows on the inner spool base, telling you which direction to wind the line on to the spool(s).
3. Wind the inner spool first: Put the end of the line into the hole that is in the core of the inner spool. insert ~1/8". Wind in the direction of the arrows until you get roughly even with the divider between the inner and outer spools. You want to end up with your line 180 degrees from the slot in the divider, and snap the line into the notch that is in the inner spool base. You want about 6" of line beyond the notch. Cut the line, leaving a 6" tail.
4. Wind the outer spool: Wind the outer spool like you did the inner spool, filling the spool as before, and ending at the slot in the divider. Feed the line through the slot and snap it into the notch. Cut a 6" tail as before.
5. Reinsert the spool: Get the spool close to the machine. Insert the tails into the grommets in the head, and snap the head into place.
6. Preparing the line for use: Push the spool in as if you were bumping it against the ground to advance the line. Grab the tails and pull. This will release the line from the notches, and should release about 1" of line in doing so.
You should be good to go.
Every so often, it's a good idea to put some graphite dust into the spool just before putting the spool back onto the machine. This helps when you are advancing the line. I do this every 8 to 10 times I rewind the spools.
If this fails to correct your problem with the spool, it would be best to purchase a replacement spool.
Best regards, --W/D--

Hello. W/D here.

It sounds like the line is wound on the spools backwards, or the spool itself may be damaged. Here's what to do to fix it if it is improperly wound:

The rewind spring for the pull start came out. What is the trick to rewind it???


put the housing end in first, take the spool and hold the spool end against it and wind the spool in the air until the spring is wound tight, then install the spool back into the housing. you have to keep your fingers on each end of the spring and hold the spool relatively close to the housing, obviously, but it's not a hard trick to master.

The pull rope will not rewind. How do I reset it?


The cord should be removed from the spool entirely, then wind the spool spring CCW for a number of turns making sure the spool can be turned for about 6 turns more (during start). Wedge the spool so that it can't unwind the spring again. If the old cord was about worn out, replace it with fresh. Melt the cord end somewhat so that the knot won't pull out, then tie an overhand knot in the cord end. Feed it into the inner retainer on the spool, then thread the cord around the spool 5 or 6 times in a CCW direction. Once wound, feed the loose end out of the cord port, slide the pull handle on, melt the cord end, and tie an overhand knot on it. Stuff the knot into the handle and release the wedge from the spool so that spring tension pulls the cord tight. Pull the cord out several times to make sure nothing interferes with cord and mechanism, then install on the saw and check the start operation. The spring should never bind-up when the cord is fully extended. Hope this helps!

Starter rewinder repair How do I rewind the starter rewinder?


If both ends of the spring are still attached, then turn the spool CCW (remove the cord first) until it is fairly wound, but still be able to turn 5 or 6 turns more to allow for the movement required when starting. The spring must not bind-up during starting. Wedge the spool so that it can't unwind again, and fix the cord to the spool inner attachment (melt the cord end before tying the overhand knot). Thread the cord CCW until the spool is nearly full, then feed it out of the cord port and slide the handle on. Melt the end and tie an overhand knot to retain the pull handle. Release the spool wedge and try the cord action--it should come out about 3' or so without binding and return smoothly. Remount the entire assembly and make sure the engine is being properly turned. Hope this helps!

I am trying to change the string on a Craftsman Weed Trimmer


Usually you "Push in" as you turn them. Or...there is a knob with a male thread shaft screwed into place holding it all tight. Hold the spool steady as you try to turn the knob off. Or...there is simply a "nut" to take off. But for the most part the newer wacker spools usually just "push in and turn/twist" out. Simple. to reinstall it or replace it with a new one simply push and twist it the opposite removal direction. FYI most lines can be manually "rewound/refilled" by yourself and reused over and over until they really wear out. There are little tricks to doing a rewinding but it isn't anywhere near difficult to do...or learn. Usually the price of a replacement spool is 5 times the cost of rewinding them yourself. Comon its easy! If ya want I'll help ya thru it.

The cord on my electrolux Epic 6500 has been pulled too far out and will not rewind. How can I access the cord reel to rewind?


There are two keys holding the body together, underneath the bumpers on the side of the vac. With the bag door open these keys when gripped with pliers will slide forward to release the body panels.

Before opening the vac, gently push the cord back inside the housing.
2 possibilities:
If the spool rotates and allows the cord to push in , the body must be disassembled, and the cord winder removed and the spring reloaded. This is tricky work. you will need to wind the entire cord onto the spool, then load 3.5 rotations onto the coil spring for tensioning, then reassemble. It's a bit like working on a land mine of you're new at it. Wear safety glasses.

BUT if the spool is locked from the outside and the cord wont push in or pull out, a fine , long blade screwdriver can be inserted diagonal to the body through the cord slot and with luck you can lift a cog of the spool releasing tension and the rewind will work. try that first , but be gentle . You must release the cord spool allowing a a dog ear catch cog to release inside by gently lifting upwards.
Post back to say how you made out,
Or look for an AERUS Electrolux service shop.
