I have an admiral vcr. the remote is broken and that was the only way to change the tape speed that I am aware of. There's nothing on the menu screen or the vcr itself to change speed. Is there some king...

Vcr has started to eat tapes. Put tape in starts to run then stops.


I did not have a problem with a projector tv-it was a vcr. I took it apart-cleaned the heads and used compressed air to blow out the dust.

first an basically the only thing you can do yourself is to clean the heads if you haven't already. if you don't have a head cleaner you can pick one up for a few bucks and play it. if that doesn't work its not worth paying to fix when you could buy a new one for less than repair cost. good luck

Tape is stuck in the vcr and when you turn on the power it turns the tape about 10 seconds and then shuts off the power.


if the tape has snagged inside, the only way to get it out is to take the top of the vcr off and manually remove it. very simple procedure. only use your fingers and not anything sharp. have you tried rewinding the tape (from STOP mode) sometimes tapes can end up being wound very tight which would have the same effect. if you can rewind do so, then fast forward until tape stops, repeat this a few times this should loosen the tape.

Am unable to get tape in VCR/combo


sir,
If you unplugged it with a tape inside that procedure has probably messed up the internal cpu or integrated circuit that controls the functions of the set.

So, it must be reset and restored to its factory settings. To do this merely unplug the power cord and leave it unplugged for at least 4 hours. It takes this long to totally discharge all the memory cells inside the unit. Then power it up again and check it out.

After the reset above if it still does not eject the tape there may be a mechanical problem. For this there are all sorts of things you can try. I refer you to www.fixer.com which has a database of things you can do to get a stuck tape out and get the tape mechanism working again.

From this site, for example, you will find a section on Sylvania vcrs that has suggestions on removing a tape. You can find it at:

Thank You

Tape stuck in vcr


Take the top of your VCR off keeping mind of where the screws came from, by the front of the tape there will be a gear wheel called the elevator wheel. After you have carefully unlooped the tape from the head, turn the elevator wheel, and you will be able to remove the tape then. Simply spool the tape back up and replace the cover.
