Question about Televison & Video
It has a mechanical problem. The take up spool is not going round, I suspect.
If you are competent, remove it from the mains supply and remove the top. Carefully examine the VCR section for foreign objects that are likely to stop the pulleys or cogs from rotating or meshing properly. I actually found a piece of toast in one of my customers VCR's. Its cause was a small person feeding the cartoon character!
Without a service manual, it will be difficult to decide on what is required to repair it but at least you may have saved yourself some money, if there was something stuck in there that shouldn't be.
Hope that helps.
