Question about Samsung SV5000W VHS VCR
Check the mode switch. There is a motor or 2 that drives the mechanical parts somtimes its in the back with a small belt and a little worm drive. You can somtimes spin that with your finger then it will power up again. The mode switch rotates in different positions and it controls all the motors and tells the machine where its at in the load and unload position. Somtimes they get dirty from use and then find dead spots. You can clean them with a pencil eraser and they will work again but its just a matter of time they will fail again. The motors get old and start to draw more curent then the switch was designed to handle thats when things start to fail. I really believe they are only designed to work for a short period.

Well first thing you need to do if you know how to troubleshoot the power supply is to get a service manual or a schematic diagram. Then go from the front to the back as some techs start from the end of the supply to the front.. To each his or hers own I guess. Not much to tell as these vcrs have been very reliable and I havent gotten one in yet for service . sorry Good Luck
