I just sent a reply, There should be an access point to the drive motor that will allow you to turn it and then this will release the carriage lock and lift the carriage so that you can remove the tape.

Reset vo-9850


This is usually caused by frayed wires in the cassette carriage. There is a bundle of colored wires that take the sensor outputs to the harness from the carriage. After many loads, they eventually break and need replacing. They are brown, red, orange and yellow from memory in a bundle of four, about 2 inches long and are soldered at each end to small circuit boards at the back right hand side of the cassette carriage (assuming you are standing at the front of the machine).
Otherwise you could have a dusty or faulty opto-coupler in the carriage. Another problem is when the cassette slips back when loading starts. Try keeping a finger on the back of the cassette as it loads into the machine to keep it engaged. Don't jam your finger, as soon as the tape goes forward enough and then begins to drop down, get the hell out of there!

Vhs tape won't load completely


I assume the cassette flap lifts fully, allowing the tape to go into the deck as this is a small lever mechanism. When the tape goes so far in, it activates a switch to start the loading motor this is usually a metal or plastic pin on the deck depending on the make of VCR (as you do not mention the model of your VCR, I can only give you an overall explination of a carriage mechanism). The pins at the side can incorporate a start sequence as well & will guide the deck into position. It looks like your machine has gone out of alignment & to solve the problem you would need to remove the cassette housing & re-align the pin at the side so that it follows the correct path, this can sometimes be a tricky & awkward thing to do as you can break parts of the deck if it is not aligned correctly. My advice would be to take it to a service repair centre.

Cassette problem


It would appear part of the carriage guide mechanism has either came out of alignment or has broken. It is very likely a replacement cassette carriage would be required.

Dead NV-SD225EU


This F04 code means that the cassete carriage has been pushed out of alignment due to the toys being inserted into the machine. It may have lost total power due to a safety component eg a fuse blowing. This would need a service repair person to fix it as the cassette carriage may also have got damaged and would need repaired as well as the carriage alignment having to be re-timed.

Can't move cassette carriage.


hello savvychris

If you can not get to the carriage motor, can you get to the one of the gears attached to the motor or the carriage gear itself. either of these should allow you to release the carriage.

Can you post some pictures of the carriage, this includes front, top, and side shots? what I am looking for is a way to advance the main motor forwards and thus release the carriage locking system.

If possible, if you have the technical documentation, send me a copy of it, I might be able to figure out what is going on for them.

Thank you,

Can't insert tape into deck


Remove the cover again and move the tape carriage all the way towards the front (the carriage is not fully in the locked position). Once that is done you should be able to load a cassette again.

Problem is with a Quasar VHS 960


This is probably part of the cassette carriage (the unit that loads & ejects the tape). You could possibly post a couple of pics- of the loose pieces, and the carriage mechanism- perhaps a tech here could point to where the pieces fit. Hopefully, nothing on the carriage (or elsewhere) is broken. VCRs of the last 10+ years are made to break easily- thin metal, thin weak plastic.

Stuck tape


If you haven't already done so, don't get overly forceful to avoid bending or breaking something. Often the cassette carriage mechanism is gear driven, and by moving the gear one direction or the other will unload the tape. You may need to disassemble the machine further to gain access to the drive mechanisim. Sometimes the carriage mech. can be entirely removed from the VCR by removing the attachment screws. Other times, these screws are made inaccessible by the tape itself. Look down on the right side of the carriage. If you do remove the carriage, mark the gear positioning first! as the gears must be positioned back exactly as they were from the manufacturer. You might need to employ the services of a technician if things are complicated.

Cassette loading process won't complete


This is a problem with the process called 'tape loading' - pulling the tape loop out of the cassette and wrapping it around the spinning video drum, engaging the capstan and pinch roller and reel rotation. If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the VCR and Check all the belts above and below the deck. Belts can appear to be firm but if they do not return immediately to their relaxed length when you stretch them 25%, they will need to be replaced. With the cover off, observe the behavior when you hit play. (You may need to put a piece of cardboard over the cassette to block external light from interfering with the start/end tape sensors). Assuming this is a basic VCR (no instant start features), you should see: 1. The video head drum begins to spin. 2. the roller guides move smoothly on the tracks, wind the tape around the drum, and stop snuggly pressed against the 'V-stopper' at the end of the tracks. 3. The pinch roller moves into position and presses the tape against the capstan. 4. The tape begins to move and is wound up by the takeup reel. 5. The picture and sound appear on the TV. With a 'rapid or quick start' (or it may be called something else) transport, the tape moves to a half-loaded position when the cassette is inserted. This is at an intermediate position partially pulled out of the cassette but not wrapped around the drum. On VCRs with a real-time counter and/or index search capabilities, the tape will be in contact with the control head. With an 'instant start' transport, the tape will fully load around the spinning drum when the cassette is inserted but the capstan will not engage and no tension will be applied to the tape until you press PLAY or REC. (After about 5 minutes, the drum will stop and it may unload to the half loaded or unloaded position.) Note that for VCRs with a real-time counter and/or index search capabilities, the tape must be in contact with the control head (but not the video heads) for all relevant modes. These VCRs (which include many modern units) must therefore pull the tape at least partly out of the cassette. In all cases, the completion of the sequence results in approximately the same mechanical configuration during PLAY.
