Question about Sanyo VWM-800 VHS VCR
Sounds like hopefully just the record tab has been removed from the vhs tape itself. It is located on the back, left side of the tape. Where you normally put the labels. If its not there then there will be a roughly half inch square opening. Theres supposed to be a tab there to allow recording and if you dont want to accidentally record you remove the tab.
If you have a store bought movie they already have the tab removed and you can compare it with a blank tape and you will see the difference.
If the tab is there, then it will be the internal switch inside the vcr that rarely but probably will be bad. You can try cleaning it with say a q-tip and alcohol. I could not locate one to purchase if it is bad. You might have to buy another vcr. Parts are extremely hard to get on vcr's because of price of new ones.
Hopefully its just the record tab. Thanks and good luck
