Solution: The tape not spooling back into the cassette is caused by a fault with the idler or clutch mechanisms. There are usually felt clutches associated with the idler gear and felt clutches on the take up and supply reels. On many VCR's the idler gear engages a direct drive gear for FF & FR, whereas for cue & review the idler gear engages a gear that drives the spool via a felt clutch, the same gear that is used for play. During play, however, the capstan/pinch roller pulls the tape through the mechanism with the take up reel pulling in the slack tape. Check for a slipping felt clutch mechanism. A little trick that works well, remove the offending spool and most spools can be popped apart, use some violin bow resin and carefully work the resin into the felt. You will find that the resin restores the lost grip of the felt with lasting results. Violin resin can also be dissolved into alcohol to provide a gloss finish over reworked solder joints.

That is 'dew' as in wet. Do you have it in a warm, dry
location? This time of year they can attract condensation if the
VCR is in a cold place.
Hope Ya Fix it!
I have a Audiovox d1988 and the screen won't play. I have sound but no picture. Help!!!
First thing I would do is try a different DVD to see if the problem persists. Otherwise, this device is equipped with integrated speakers, meaning it is unlikely that you will be able to replace them. You may be in the market for a new Audiovox, unfortunately; but before you scrap it I suggest taking it to a local electronic repair store near you.
Hope this helps,
