Question about Panasonic PV-V4021 S-VHS VCR
I submitted the problem "Cassette loading process won't complete" and indicated that the cassette basket (not "carriage", sorry) won't drop. After working with it further I found out that this is only true when I push on the basket manually. When I actually insert a cassette, the basket DOES drop but the guide rollers don't engage. Ocassionally the roller, guide, or spindle on the swinging plastic arm to the right side of the basket catches the tape and pulls it out but not always. The VCR inevitably spits the cassette back out, pulling a bit of the tape out as it slides back over the stationary guide rollers. Throughout this process the cassette door (if that's the correct term for the entrance to the cassette basket) never closes. As before, there are no unusual sounds - whirring, clicking, or otherwise - associated with the problem. Thanks.

Tips for a great answer:
This can be due to many faults and need a full check up but I can fill up with few tips.
1. If the cassette does not loads it is a fault on the loading mechanism as once the cassette is put into the hodler and pressed down the load motor must take up to forward the mechansim and mode..
2. Defective loading motor, loading drive mechanism or carriage alignment.
3. Fault in the power section to deliver the correct voltage to the circuits/loading servo to take up.
4 Finally if the loading is not to the MODE switch point or failure of mode can make the loading to trip as it will not complete the load to the desired point.
