With a little dis-assembly, the tape can be saved without any problem. The main issue is that this is really not a DIY repair. There are dangerous high voltages present inside the unit even when unplugged. I would not suggest you attempt to retrieve this tape. The repair cost for parts will be about $10 (belts). Check with a few local repair shops. They should be able to help with this at a reasonable price. A complete refurb of these types of units can usually be done for less than $100 total. I refurb these all the time.

Hope this helps,
Dan

VCR tape loads and put tape around drum but then kicks tape out without returning the tape to the cartridge or playing. tape is then hung up inside the mechanism.


Dirty heads or rollers usually cause that or the tracking path has worn and the rollers are out of alignment. I would try a tape head cleaner first. Video / music stores or electronic stores usually sell them. You get a special tape to insert and cleaning solution.

VCR won't record, just ejects tape


You have not mentioned the make and model number of the vcr. Any way the problem is due to end sensor or related circuit. End sensors are photo diods which you can check the shorting with a multy meter.

When i put in a tape, i get a squeeling sound, and the tape won't play.


The only way is to take the top off and watch what the tape is doing! You might even see some object inside which should not be there!

Power goes off when a cassette is inserted. Tried cleaning heads but it won't even run that. When power is turned back on the cassette is immediately ejected.


Good day!!!

Most common problems
  • VCR refuses to FF or REW and shuts off.
  • VCR shuts off entering PLAY or REC or at random during PLAY or REC.
  • VCR eats tapes.
  • VCR doesn't accept tapes or ejects them without cause.
  • Sound is wavery, fluctuating, or muddy.
The cause for all of these is very often a bad idler tire or other dirty, worn, or tired rubber parts

Vcr cuts my tv off after i put the tape in


The VCR is not turning the TV power off. The tape is not playing. I'd guess maybe it needs a cleaning or a replacment.

Tape stuck and tv turns off


With the set unplugged remove the back and extract the main board. You'll find a metal cover over the tape housing area that is easily removed by removing some screws holding it to the board area and manipulating some wired over it... You should then be able to see the tape and what's hanging it up. If you need to unwrap tape from the pinch roller or around the guides do so carefully. When it all looks free you can either manually crank the load motor assembly to eject the tape or put it back together enough to plug it in and press eject. If you do the later be VERY careful... Good Luck! Bill
