You might just need to clean the head, Servisol Video 40 is best.

This is normally happens when the heads are dirty. Either try a head cleaning tape or call a service centre to have them cleaned.

Very common problem when tape feeder wears out. It takes a bit of soldiering and testing to replace the feeder. Honestly, I would just get a new one.

TAKING A GOOD QUALITY TAPE FROM ONE CASETTE AND MOVE TO ANOTHER WITHOUT HARMING THE TAPE QUALITY: TAKE A NEW, GOOD CASETTE AND UNSCREW THE 5 SCREWS HOLDING THE TWO PARTS OF THE CASETTE TOGETHER. AT THIS POINT DO NOT OPEN THE CASETTE. TURN THE CASETTE UPSIDE DOWN (SO THAT THE SIDE WHERE THE SCREWS CAME OUT IS NOW SITTING DOWNWARDS ON A FLAT SURFACE) IF YOU OPEN THE CASETTE BEFORE TURNING IT UPSIDE DOWN, ALL KINDS OF SMALL PIECES WILL FALL OUT AND YOU WILL NOT KNOW WHERE THEY CAME FROM. NOW GENTLY SEPARATE THE TWO PARTS OF THE CASETTE AND PAY ATTENTION TO EXACTLY WHERE THE TAPE RUNS THROUGH VARIOUS SPINDLES, ETC. MAKE A SKETCH IF THIS WILL HELP YOU. GENTLY LIFT OUT THE TAPE AND REPLACE IT WITH THE TAPE THAT WAS IN THE BROKEN CASETTE. THIS IS ASSUMING THAT THE ONLY DAMAGE WAS TO THE CASETTE ITSELF AND NOT THE TAPE. REPLACE THE TOP PART OF THE CASETTE (WITH THE SCREW HOLDS STILL FACING DOWNWARDS). HOLDING THE TWO PIECES OF THE CASETTE TIGHTLY TOGETHER, TURN IT OVER AND REPLACE THE SCREWS. TRY NOT TO HANDLE THE TAPE ITSELF. I HAVE USED RIGHT FITTING SURGEON'S GLOVES WHILE DOING THIS, BUT REALLY DON'T KNOW IF THEY HELP, BUT THEY DO KEEP THE NATURAL OILS OF THE FINGERS OFF THE TAPE.

Hi,

Initially, I am inclined to think that nothing is wrong. It is just most likely that that particular tape was recorded in a different speed other than what your VCR is capable of playing. This is a form of compression wherein a longer recording/playing time is squeezed into the same type/kind of tape. The various settings are SP, LP, EP or even an XP. Pls click here to give you an idea of the recording time/speed at different settings.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi hannah. The simplest way to remove stuck tapes is to remove the top cover. Usually just a couple of screws. Then remove the stuck tape and put the cover back into place. You can also look for emergency eject hole and insert a snall pin into the hole and attempt to eject the disc while repeatedly twisting the pin inside the hole.

Good luck!

Does it have any lights at all coming on? If not then the power supply has failed. You can try and replace the internal fuse, but that rarely is the cause of the problem (unless you got a power transient just enough to pop the fuse but nothing else). More likely, the power supply is dead and not worth replacing unless it is a high end model. If you take a chance and replace the P/S, sometimes the circuitry (microprocessor brain) is toast as well which is not repairable.

Not spinning disc If it spins with a little help from yourself replace the spindle motor with improved motor, part number: RXQ0749A Unable to detect discs The laser head was the culprit. Replacing it fixed the problem. (Laser head code GRP6278A) Dew indicator is on permanently. Cannot play or record tapes. No dew present - caused by internal fault This Camcorder uses very fragile flexible circuits to interconnect the PCB's. They plug in to edge connectors. It seems that when they made these camcorders at the factory, they had as many problems getting these film flexy circuits back into the connectors as us service engineers have. I saw one unit that had a crease in the flexy circuit which had caused a hair-line fracture. Solution, trace the wiring and solder a sub-miniature wire across the broken track. Don't disturb any flexy connectors that you don't need to. This camcorder is a **** to work on Not loading properly Usually due to incorrect head alignment or dirty head, or failure of LM324 op-amp Doesn't record properly, ie: looks like one channel is down when recorded, pre-recorded tapes are ok Check Q008 for dry joints

First locate the load and unload motor, it is the one with the rubber drive band. release the drive band and rotate the gear to raise and pull the carriage back into position.
This should remove your cassette, and put the carriage back into position.

It may need to be cleaned. Mechanical problems are one of the big problems with VCRs they use alot of mechanical moving parts and play for so long they fail. Plastic parts dont help much either. The pinch roller takes up the slack and is usualy the part that fails first because it constantly runs along the tape and builds a coating on the rubber so it doesnt grip the tape and pull it back into the cassette. If its not pulling the tape back in then it hangs up inside and you cant get the tape out. Fastforward uses the reels to pull the tape not so much the roller. Try and stop 2 times then fast forward then eject the tape. Try and eject the tape while its fastforwarding so it doesnt do anything else. Sometimes machines will unload after its been in fastforwad a while then it will eject. You will hear a change in the sound when it unloads, you can hear the mechanical arms move the tape in and out of the cassette. Thats when you eject it. You cant really clean it till you get the tape out. YOu can clean the pinch roller with fingernail polish or paint remover. It is a wheel inside it looks like a black tire. It pinches the tape against the capstan arm this is why it developes a film or a shine on the rubber making it slip.

Can?t help you with the price, but it sounds as if the problem is a loose pin that might have gotten loose in the eaten tape incident. Maybe you should get a second opinion.

A red flashing light on a JVC TV means that the TV timers function has been activated. When setting the programmable clock it will automatically turn on and turn off your TV at predetermined times.

It's not the outage that causes the issue, it is the power surge when it goes, often caused by a lightning strike of 100,000 volts, and also a surge when the power comes back on. If it took out one board, it took them all out, because they are all connected together.Change all the boards, but I bet it still won't work. Claim to your electricity utility company or claim on house insurance.
