It could be that there is a separate motor for the rewind function, and it may be in need of replacement. Also you should check the belts for stretching/wear, as they have a direct impact on the speed. Also, most new VCRs have a function that the tape rewind slows considerably when it senses that its close to the beginning of the tape. Its very possibly that your VCR has a defect in that sensing mechanism. Good luck

Rewinding to listen to recording

You should use the computer with Digital Voice Editor software to have more options when trabscribing. You could then use the transcribing keys to playback your recordings and regulate the velocity of the playback.
Download Digital Voice Editor Version 3.1.03 for Windows Vista/XP/2000.
64 bit version operating systems are not supported, though

Film rolls back automaticaly

The camera shouldn't be doing this, assuming you're using 36 exposure (or 24 exposure) film. You may want to set a custom function to prevent automatic rewind -- you would have to rewind the film yourself by pressing the rewind button.

To do this:
1. Under the palm grip, press the 'CF' (custom function) button.
2. Use the main dial to select 'F1' in the LCD. It should show a '0' below the 'F1'.
3. Press the 'CF' button to change the '0' to a '1'.
4. Press the shutter button half way to save the change and exit the custom function setting mode.

If you want to stop the rewind with the film leader still exposed (film doesn't rewind entirely into the cannister), use the same steps but set custom function 'F2' to a value of '1'.

How do I rewind

by just pressing the rewind button, it goes to beginning. by press and holding down the rewind button, it will start rewinding slowly and get faster the longer it is being held down.
