Question about Panasonic NV-HS1000 S-VHS VCR
I have a very high end Panasonic HS1000 VCR, its' about 10 years old, but has not been used very much the last 7 or 8 years. However I want to keep it, and so I have this problem that needs fixing:
It intermittently shuts down when it is playing or rewinding/fastforwarding,
the machine goes into standby mode. On turning it on, the tape can be heard moving forward or backwards not sure which, it can do that for a minute or so and while it does it no operations can be made. All of a sudden it stops the tape and all is well again for a while.
I've had this problem for many years, but I learned to live with it up until a few months ago when it just went into standby and now if I try to turn it on, it lights up for a few secs, then goes back into standby. I've got a tape trapped inside now as well.. I've heard form someone that this might be a faulty 'mode-switch'? If so, is this switch easy to replace? Where is it located? Where can I buy one? I have a parts machine I can use, so would be great if someone could help.. Thanks. John

Before you try anything too elaborate, change all of the belts. There are a number of safety features built into this unit to prevent the tape from getting damaged. If one of the reel tables is not turning when it should, the unit will shutdown. There are a number of similar checks made continuously as the machine runs. If you have no experience with these units, bing it in for service. The parts should not be more than $5-$25 total. Add in the local labor charge for the total repair bill. Basically this unit should be cleaned and the alignment checked after the belts have been changed.
