Question about Sanyo Televison & Video
Hi. We have a Sanyo 9440 stereo vcr, which is a few years old, but hasn't been used much at all. It has worked fine until just recently, when it started mangling tapes. It has never been bumped or dropped, and has stayed in its same position while we've had it. Machine is clean, and there has never been anything in it to foul the heads or drive system. Why do you think it is now starting to weird-out on us? Steve Slezak (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Most likely it hasn't been used enough. You see the rubber parts that drive the tape get dry and can develope small hairline cracks. It can be fixed. But it would be a lot cheaper to just get a newer machine. You could also try a WET TAPE cleaner-ASOP makes a good one-radio shack still carries it. It cleans the entire path of the tape (all the rubber rollers and metal parts that the tape comes into contact with). When it is done you may have to run it again. Just wait 20 min after you are done before testing a tape in it (stuff needs to dry inside). If that don't work-buy a new one- they're cheap enough this days.
