Question about Symphonic SL260A S-VHS VCR
The VCR started to eat my tapes! I stopped playing the tape, and tried to eject. The tape only came half way. It was "free" from the mechanical stuff, but wouldn't come out all the way like normal, so I had to use tongs to get it out. Now it thinks there is still a tape in it! I've tried disconnecting the power to reset it, but it still thinks there is a tape in, and will not even let me watch my dvd player which is plugged into the vcr, it will shut off and flash the tape in light. Is this somthing I can fix, or is it time to just get a new vcr?
On this particular vcr usually there is a small plastic gear on the right handside of carriage assembly i noticed that if one of the teeth are missing it will cause the whole unit to go out of sync.
the only solution here is to find a new gear online to replace it otherwhise i hate to say it but is scrap..
