Black rectangle on the bottom of the screen when playing tape
I posted this problem earlier, giving the incorrect model number. When we play a tape (we have tried several), there is a black rectangle in the center of the bottom of the screen, measuring about 10" wide by 4" high. When we fast forward the box disappears.

Hi, Two possibilities, either player needs tape path adjustment or requires drum (video head) replacement. Above said solution requires expertise and Sony trained tech will do this job with proper tools. Thanks.
there are guide posts that the tape goes around, they need to be adjusted if your good at that stuff take off cover and while playing tape be careful you could damage video head.with flat srew drive . adjust right post buy turning clockwise or counter clockwise. this could be hard i hope i helped , When i first started ny video shop 1987 we started doing only vcrs.
The video head also could be bad. thanks doctor video
Does the tape hang out when you eject the cassette?
8 seconds is about the time that the VCR brain allows the mechanism to
run when there is a problem before shuting down. Just guessing
from the model number, but I'd say the unit needs a belt job.
