Could be several issues, but likely worn rubber ie belts or idler. Check with http://www.electronix.com/ I believe they still carry VCR parts.

Cassette tape plays super fast


Sounds like the pinch wheel is not contacting the capstan correctly. It could become less pliable or mechanically not applying enough force to the capstan.

VCR PLAYER PLAYS TAPE WITH INTERMITTENT STATIC EVERY 1/2 SECOND


The static you are seeing is the lack of capstan servo lock. Notice if you adjust the tracking the condition does not change. If it is an old mechanical switch VCR, it could be as simple as a dirty record/play switch. If it has belts replace the capstan belt. Other than that, you are looking at an open capacitor between the control head and the capstan motor servo. Much more difficult to troubleshoot without service information.

I'm not sure how old your unit is but over time, the rubber parts in a VCR become cracked, glazed and begin to slip.

There is a rubber wheel about the diameter of a nickel that is called the pincher wheel and does exactly what its called.

It pinches or compresses the tape against a shiny metal spindle called a capstan. The capstan spindle is connected to a motor. The pincher wheel rests against the turning capstan with the tape in between the wheel and capstan.

The pincher wheel can become glazed and coated with a brown oxide that has worn off of the tape. This causes the tape to slip and it can spool out into the VCR.

There is another wheel called an idler tire. It lays flat and pivots between the sending reel and pickup reel. Its used during play, fast forward & rewind. This wheel too can become glazed and worn causing slipping. If your unit won't play, fast forward or rewind, most likely the idler tire is the culprit.

There are also belts that can also become glazed and worn. These belts are used along with motors in the tape load/eject mechanism and capstan drive. If the belts slip, the tape may not load or eject properly and the capstan might not be turning properly.

When I owned my repair shop, one solution was we to remove the belts and/or tires and apply a re-grip solution on the rubber with a cotton swab, while roughly rubbing the the entire rubber surface back & forth with the swab. The re-grip solution actually eats away the top surface of the rubber leaving the rubber surface course and causing it to grip better.

Another solution was to just replace all of the rubber tires and belts. These parts including the re-grip solution may be ordered through www.mcmelectronics.com

Please let me know if I may be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

VCR problem in EWR2OV4


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. The pincher wheel can become worn and/or dirty 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 than can be wound up. 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!

Rewind or fast forward


Though not familiar with this model, VCRs of all sorts have an idler mechanism which drives the supply and takeup spindles. Either the idler is somehow defective and slipping, and, assuming this idler is belt driven, the belt may be slipping just enough to cause a no Rew/FFW condition. If you had access to a test tape jig (a clear dummy tape, which allows a tech to view what is happening in the area normally obscured by the loaded tape), this might give a clue as to what is happening. On alot of machines, a problem with Rew/FFW would also mean a tape takeup problem in standard play, result in tape spilling out inside the machine. Sensors would catch this condition and go into a error mode, as yours is doing. One other thing which might be happening here, is the pinch roller not being disengaged from the capstan in the Rew/FFW modes. I think this is where I'd look first, and you can probably see if such is happening just by pulling the cover off the VCR. The pinch roller is just to the right of the rotating video head. In the play and forward/rev search modes it will press the tape up against the capstan (a rotating shaft). When in Rew/FFW, the pinch roller should be pulled back from the capstan, maybe 1/4 inch or so. Whatever the case, repair will likely take someone tech savvy. Costs might not be economically justified, with the low-cost, disposable rigs sold in the last 10+ years.
