Question about VCRs
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.
Thanks for your info. As it turned out there was no parts and I returned it to the seller and called it a day.

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?
