Google "Capacitor bulge" and then search Youtube for your make and model to see if anyone has done an instructional video. You'll need to be comfortable dismantling the TV and be able to use a soldering iron. If this isn't you then take it to a repair shop.
It sounds like the LED might be burned out of it.
Is your VCR still under warranty? If it is, the manf. can replace it at no cost. Otherwise an LED doesnt cost that much to replace if that is the problem.
Did it do anything else before the problem happened?
Does it still work now? But you cant see the screen is all?
I'm sure all it requires is a "more" up-to-date recorder (although up-to-date doesn't exist for that these days because of all the DVD's and Blu-ray discs). I am not sure if you mean the problem that it keeps doing that (problem in the recorder. Or you get it repaired, or you get yourself a new one (cheap these days, I wouldn't recommend repairing). Or you're meaning the problem that the tape is now completely ruined. If it hasn't been damaged too hardly, you can get the tape fixed. Or you get someone to repair it, or you can even try it yourself. I'm sure there are things on the internet for that.
take the case off and see if the tape is stuck around anything. if not, remove the tape deck very carefully (make sure it is unplugged first). you should be able to remove the tape fairly easy. the tape may be wrapped around something inside of the deck there, or the loading gears could be out of synch. and if it happens again you might consider getting a new vcr because to replace a new loading deck is cost prohibitive because vcr's are so cheap now.
I just had the same problem and found a solution on the internet that worked. Hopefully you still have the VCR's remote control. Press and hold either the on/off, VCR1 or VCR2 button on the remote. I pressed the VCR1 button and held it for about 5-7 seconds. It released the lock and worked fine afterwards. The lock is some kind of childlock devise.
Is the vcr in a cold room? the heads might have dew on them
or need cleaned. If it keeps doing it you probly wouldn't want to fix it at a shop. you can buy new vcr's with remote at walmart now for $25-$30 I think. Hey you can try the old treatment
that i always do. Try unplugging the vcr from the electrical
outlet for a hour or maybe even longer sometimes that will resit
everything in it and it will work right.
