JVC ¾? Umatic Model CR-6060U parts or alturnative

JVC ¾” Umatic Video Cassette Recorder Model CR-6060U
A repair guy said the "video heads" need to be replaced. (seems to be
unavailable) He said it was a unit which included transport parts. The
problem is no play, FF, after I cleaned belts and hubs underneath unit the
RR worked. I can see while trying to open up the top, a roller and hub
are, tarred ( black residue on hub and eroded roller.) Two side panels
seem to flip up after removing all visible retaining screws, however there
was strong resistance and I did not want to stress or brake anything. If I
can get the side panels open then I can remove everything in the way and
at least clean the roller and hub. All suggestions on finding "video
heads" part or other possible solutions would be a big help. Thanks.

I used to repair these units and still own one. Each
one of the black side panels (control panel covers) is
held in place by four screws. After removing the
screws and control knobs, the right panel should come
right up. You may need to move the left hand panel
forward to clear the headphone jack before it can be
removed. From your description, it sounds like the
FF/play rubber tire is worn. After removing both side
panels, remove the cassette elevator. The elevator is
held in place by four screws. Two on each side of the
elevator. Pull the unit up, the FF/play and RR rubber
tires should now be clearly visable. Have you found a
video head yet?

I need the video head for a sony slv 815


The parts you are looking won't be easy to find, go online to sony, contact customer support, and the technical department to see if they can help, if not! try and find a repairman that still repairs vcr's, because he would have access to part suppliers that may still carry what you need.

I have a JVC, DVD recorder/video cassette recorder, model DR-MV7SU. When I try to rewind the tape, it will stop and try to eject the cassette, the tape gets commingled inside, What can I do or what website...


Hello
Check all the belts in the vcr mechanism. Replace them all at one time. You can get it is kit form, from most of the electronc spare part shops at your town. Give them the model number of your device. They will select it for you. The fault is with elongated driving belts. OK.

Bands or lines on screen during playback


Hi tlaufer ,
              According to the symptom this problem is related to the VIDEO HEAD, As you earlier try to clean the head but no results, Please open the cassette compartment of your camera (as when you insert the cassette in it) for 30 mins (remains open cassette compartment) Actueally some time due to moisture head get durt.
After 30 mins insert the cassette and play it. Hope it will start work again fine.
      But if no result from the said procedure then there must be a damadge of point of the head, in this condition you have to replace the VIDEO HEAD assembly.
Thanks for using fixya.

Vcr will not load vcr cartridge


The tape mechanism is not loading and/or driving the VCR tape properly. Most people don't realize that the tape is physically pulled out of the VCR cassette and wrapped around the video heads in a semi-circle configuration. Your VCR guides are pulling the tape out but not retracting it into the cassette shell when you press eject. Causes: mode switch, mechanical failure, video head speed/drive problems. All these problems are somewhat complex for a novice repair person and don't forget that new VCR's are selling for $30 at the big box stores....Glen.

Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
