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.

My JVC Video recorder.


Probably just needs a good cleaning. The video head is a very tiny thing and takes very little contamination (like dust) to clog it up. If it sits around in humid air then drys out and hardens, it won't come off with those cassette cleaners.
Here is how to do a good cleaning. Unscrew and take off the VCR cover. See the 2 (maybe 4) little windows on the outside of the cylinder head? (round metal thing on a tilt that spins) Those are the video heads and are very easily clogged with contamination causing loss of video. Take a piece of leather the size of a postage stamp, wet it with a little alcohol and just hold it on the side of the cylinder head while you spin the cylinder gently with the other hand to GENTLY wash these heads. Don't move the leather at all - especially up and down as the heads will easily break off. Let them dry for a minute and try to watch a tape. May need to do this several times to get a good picture. Can squirt alcohol directly on the heads and really soak them if needed. Last resort is to use something really strong like acetone, but beware this will also melt any plastic parts it touches.
Hope Ya Fix it!
