VCR plays for a few seconds and rewinds. Now, the VCR plays tape in fast forward mode
I own a Quasar VV-2008 20 in. TV/VCR Combo. VCR plays for a few seconds and rewinds/autorepeats the tape. Next, it played an entire two 90 minutes tape and stopped twice. Now, the VCR plays tape in fast forward mode with a screach.

your unit is detecting the take up real is not rotating and the tape is protected from being caught in the mechanism, this is an easy repair in most cases, it is likely a take-up clutch or a real sensor problem, note that these days you can purchase a sutibale replacement VCR for quit cheep so spending more than 40 bucks for a repair may purchase you a new with 1 year
Look in the back or the front of ur tv have a (Video Audio holes In).Look in ur DVD player in the back or the front have a (video Audio holes Out).Used a component AV video cable hook both devices together.Find the Video Mode in ur tv 1 or 2,now play the DVD player with a dvd disc.Now u should be playing the content of the dvd disc.If u don't have a AV video cable,tries websites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com to buy a set of AV video cable.
The tape head needs cleaning. Best to use the type that you put a drop or two of alcohol on. Find a cleaning tape that works best for you, or have a TV shop do it for you. The "Blue Screen" is what the TV defaults to when the signal is not strong enough, either through the tv tuner, or the tape head signal. If this is helpful... click "FixYa" below. Thanks! Len
You might be able to restore the factory settings by pressing "play" and "FF" simultaneously and hoding them down until the set shuts off (about 5 seconds). Then when you turn it back on it will lead you through the setup routine, which includes auto channel select.
I have a similar problem. It takes 3 or 4 times to get my Sony VCR to accept a tape. Once it does, everything is fine, until I turn it off. Next day, same trouble. I tried several tapes and brand new tapes. No difference. I have opened the cabinet and used alcohol to clean various stuff, no change.
