You really should take this unit into a repair shop with the stuck tape as to get this bugger out of the unit will require the tape loading mechanism to be disassembled. if this is not taken apart correctly, you could cause more damage to the unit. Good Luck.

My vcr and dvd combo is turning on for 8 seconds after i press the button and then shuts off. What do i do?


When a VCR encounters a mechanical problem, such as something wrong with the mechanism or a tape that gets stuck, the electronics will detect this and shut off the power to prevent further damage.
The mechanism will need to be checked to see what is wrong with it.

Why doesn't the open/close button on DVD player of DVD/VCR combo work?


There are rubber belts inside that run the mechanism. They dry out and stretch. Measure the belt length in mm, then divide it by 2 and subtract 2-3mm to account for the stretch. You can order square belts on amazon

VHS tape is running at high speed when insert it to VCR. no playback..buttons doesnot work.


Check if the fast forward button is more inside than the rest of the buttons. May be its stuck in the ff position. After all they were just micro switches below the plastic buttons strip. The specific ff micro switch may be stuck, if I were you I would try some switch cleaning spray to loosen it. But be prepared that the control ic is busted.

A cassette has jammed inside my vcr machine. It will not move forward or backward Can yoy please help


Hello,

Since the tape won't come out then it means you will have to manually remove the stuck tape. This involves you disassembling the unit in order to help/assist the player get the stuck tape out.

Turn of the unit and remove from the wall, get a Philip screw driver, use it to remove all the screws from the unit and take it apart.

Open the cover and you will see the stuck tape and what's hooking or preventing it from coming out/ejecting.

Now plug the unit, and turn it on. Press the eject button, as the tape tries to come out, support it with your hand so that it can come out.

Or if it happen that the cassette tape has coiled inside the unit, carefully free the coiled tape and the press the eject button.

Lastly, the moment you disassemble the player, you would see what's preventing it from coming out, then you can free whatsoever that is making it stuck press the eject button and the tape should come out.

Make sure the unit is turned off each time you want to remove what's making the cassette stuck.

I hope understand the above explanations.

Good luck.

It sounds like the tape is jammed in the vcr, remove the top cover of the machine this will expose the tape. If the tape is spewed in the mechanical section and around the video head, get a pair of scissors and start cutting the tape and carefully remove all tape particles, when all tape debris has been removed, plug in vcr turn on and eject. If the tape looks good, you may have a loading basket problem, bad idler ***. or broken drive belt. "Lets hope for the best"

Stuck tape


If I remember correctly, press and hold the power button for ten seconds or a little more. If its not the power button try any button but I am pretty sure you will not be discouraged.

Hold down the power button (or the vcr button if on a combination remote) for six seconds. This will unlock the child lock feature of the vcr.
