Question about RCA VR652HF VCR

1 Answer

I've had this RCA VCR model # VR652HF for about 10 to 12 years but one day it just stopped working as it was. All it does now is if you turn it on it says hello, then ejecting then turns off after 5- 10 secs of saying ejecting. But if I mess around with the buttons when it starts up it stays on momentarily, then says ejecting and shuts off? What is the problem here an how do I fix it.

Good day
It sounds to me like that 1 or more of the drive belts has lost it's tension..(meaning it's time for new belts).
Another thing,..some models have a wee light bulb inside that is involved with the loading drawer..it senses that the tape has loaded properly, ..(continue towards "play tape".)
If it has burned out,..the machine cannot "see" that the tape is/is not in place,.."shuts down".

Best bet to send to a repair tech for service. Have a "belt&tire kit" plus the bulb replaced...& check over the loading drawer...(a trouble area also).

Hello,

You might try contacting Parts Express and MCM Electronics as possible sources for replacements. Otherwise, keep an eye on the electronics parts of auctions for a 'parts only' donor VCR.

We have a RCA VCR Model VR622HF Manf. 9-18-98 that suddenly won't turn on manually OR with remote. I am an experienced Electronic Tech with 43 years @ ATT. I measured the resistance at the AC Plug and read...


Hi,
If front display lit up when vcr plugged in that means power supply is working and issue is in system control section, and if front display remains dark while vcr plugged in wall socket then power supply is defective.
As you know its an old model vcr so I do not think spare parts would be available any more, I found good option for you to fix this vcr.
Click eBay.com link to get same vcr in working order for $40 that can be used to obtain either power supply or any other board/ parts to repair your vcr.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

MY RCA DRC 8320n DVD Recorder/VCR Combo will not accept tapes. DVD works fine. RCA help line is a joke. I will never buy another RCA product.


Yah, you're going to be taking that in for repair. I worked for couple of years at RCA / Sony / Panasonic / ... and 60 more names - service center. When a VHS Cassette loading mechanism doesn't work - it probably needs loading motor or loading gear, something repaired. At the cost of DVD and VHS combos these days I'd call it Not Worth Repair (NWR) out of the starting gate. At least $50 an hour, at least 2 hours ... that's beyond the cost of a new one.

RCA model DRC8335 Loosing the date and time


That will be a problem from the text side of the broadcast, the clock is set from the text transmission, ( in other words a problem from the transmitter ) possibly due to digital switchover or work on the transmitters. One possible solution would be to turn off auto clock setting, and/or auto summer time adjustment.

Clearing program


You are in a tough spot cause you probably keep the VCR to transfer old Tapes. FYI, did you know that DVD's have a shelf life of less than 10 years and VCR VHS tapes are good for 20 years plus? Keep your old tapes.

Write RCA and find out if you can get a new remote, it is basically the only solution.

Check with Ebay for a used one, you might get lucky.

"SAFE"


Greetings Spock! Although I worked for an authorized rca service depot for 12 years, and worked on many, I can't remember the solution to your problem, and Thompson Consumer Electronics (RCA/GE) don't even accknowledge they ever sold vcr's..I went to RCA.com and your model comes up as "does not exist"...Anyway...I know I've worked on that model, and if you have the book, check the section about parental lock, or Key lock...your RCA could very well be Samsung inside, and if so press and hold the tv/vcr button for 5 seconds and that will release the key lock feature. It is there so if you set the timer, or just don't want the kids messing with it, you can lock all the key functions, and the unit will do nothing except display "safe" Hope this helps...Live long & prosper!
