Video tape gets eaten on rewind

I have a JVC HR-XVC26U DVD/VCR combo. It's just under two years old. the DVD is fine. The VCR side will play and fast forward; but when you go to rewind, it eats the tape. I've opened the rig up; it seems that the VCR 'send' reel side has some kind of tension failure when the tape slows down at the end of the rewind sequence. I've cleaned capstans, heads and sensors. Another symptom: the digital time counter is inconsistent or not working at all during rewind. Any help??? Thanks in Advance

With regard to the tape being eaten, quite often it is a cassette problem. The two winding reels run on plastic bases which often becomes very dry and the two reels do not run smoothly. Remove the outer casing and take the two tape reels and the tape out. Then apply a small amount of powdered graphite to the rubbing surfaces of the bottom casing. Reinstall the two reels, making sure to put the tapes in the correct positions around the tape posts, and then replace the outer casing. This often resolves the problem.

Or the braking/tension mechanism is defective. Or the rewind clutch is defective.

Does the machine play tapes well? Clear steady picture and all? No tracking bars? wavering sound? Tape chewing is generally a problem with a bad Capstan Pinch Roller, Associated symptoms are as above. Please do recheck or confirm if any of the above problems are also present.

    Between the two of us (Techman and I) we seem to have covered up all possibilities.

    The Digital Timer works only on recorded portions of Tape., as takes a reference pulse from the Tracking Pulse. So, If there are areas of tape which are chewed up, there will be no tangible pulse for it to Input. All are associated problems.

Poor picture when recorded on vcr

run a head cleaner through, a wet one is best and this should improve the quality of playback. Also check the condition of the vcr cassettes you are using, old ones do get worn out and leave dirt on the rollers and heads

Component Cable

Component video quality is better then Composite Video (yellow wire)
Of course component cable hook up will improve picture quality.

Seinfeld DVD episodes won't play

It is probably not your VCR. If it is only the Seinfeld DVD's then the format that the production company wrote on those few episodes are incompatible with your vcr. I know I'm not solving your problem much, but don't go waste money on a brand new Vcr when not needed.

VCR tape playback not good

Check your "tracking" If the tape played fine in the old machine, then tracking is the answer, provided that the new machine records good.

Loud noise on rewind

You may have an idler gear wheel which has been damaged- perhaps broken/worn gear teeth or something afoul in it's drive mechanisms. Check this idler which sits down in between the supply and take-up spindles. You should be able to see this with no tape loaded. This idler should also move freely from supply to takeup- if it is sticky in movement this could be the problem. If your idler is broken, you may be able to replace it. Check with a service center- or a parts supplier. MCM electronics is one such supplier- there are others.

VCR plays for a few seconds and rewinds. Now, the VCR plays tape in fast forward mode

Most everyone I know had problems with the tv/vcr combo including myself. I'll never buy one again. I'm sorry you are having the same problem.
