You should take off the top cover with the set unplugged and see if there is a main fuse that popped. If there is, put in another fuse,. If that blows, then your going to need to have the power supply in this unit repaired. Good Luck

This may indicate power supply problems, or perhaps an overload condition, causing the power supply to go into overload protection. If you have a voltmeter, schematic (helpful but not 100% necessary), you could check voltages. You should see at +5 volts, +12 volts, and one or two others. A frequent power supply problem is one or more electrolytic capacitors go wacky, and cause the voltages to be way off, and a non-operational unit. If this is one of the newer low cost rigs, then taking it to a service center isn't cost effective. Toss it and purchase a new one.

SOURCE: I have loading problem for My Samsung VCR VX1260.I

That part is the entire loading assembly. It is not likely that you need the entire assembly. I would check in your area for a service shop that works on VCRs. I would suspect a slipping belt as the most likely problem. Belts are relatively cheap. Figure on $4 for a drive/loading belt.

My magnavox ZV457MG9 A loads a vcr tape crooked after a tape was stuck in there and we had to pull it out. any resolution to this?

Sounds like a mechanical issue which wasn't helped by forcing part of the carriage downward (I have seen this a million times and worse) You may also have a timing error in your machine which is causing the shutoff when rewind is selected. The carriage is in the wrong position in relation to the mode switch (for eject/load) and is possibly damaged in some way.

Assuming the damage to the carriage loading assembly is minimal to zero, the whole VCR mechanism will have to be re-timed (carriage re-aligned to the position of the guides and take up arm, etc. so that the entire mech is fully ejected and can load correctly) this can only be done in a service workshop by a qualified technician as it is very time consuming and may involve replacing some broken gears on the carriage (which was probably the reason tapes loaded crookedly in the first place), along with clean up and lubrication of other parts.

The good news is that it is a common thing for these to break (flimsy VHS decks with fragile gears) so it isn't too expensive to correct this but you may be without a unit for a few days while they fix the problem. If the cost of repair is reasonable, roll with it.

The vcr tape loads but does not move three peices fell out when i opened it up a rubber oblong wheel a plastic peice wth a spring any sugestions?

I would search for the service manual, because serious damage as things falling out will often send the VCR mode switch out of position. This device tells the electronics what the mechanial section mode is in IE: fast forward or playback etc. However VCR's mode switches and getting them set up right is nearly impossible unless you have done it many times before - hence the need for the manual. It will also list the part numbers of the broken bits and show where they fit.

If you can't get one free try Manuals In PDF.

Tape got stuck now when trying to eject makes noise then turns off

Good day

Your tape break off inside VCR? Look for broken piece & remove (very carefully)!
RESIST all temptation to touch the drum head! They are very sensitive, & can be ruined easily.

If no broken tape inside, you may have a "broken tire"..a tape spool drive rubber ring.
It's repairable but best bet to find an electronics technician.

The trouble I really suspect is
The loading drawer! There are wee flimsy plastic gears that "pull" the tapes in etc,..they break,...not work after. Need to replace broken parts. Glue won't solve those for long...I've had short-term success.

My LG dv490h DVD player has its DVD drawer jammed open. When I press the button to close, it goes 20% of the way in and stops. My one year old pulled the drawer open this morning. Have taken the cover off...

The DVD tray has come off the alignment or settings which make it come OFF the mechanism. So you will need to push back the drawer back to the set position and this might be possible only after the loading mechanism is pulled out. The loading gear would have meshed with the loading drawer at mid way -due to the pull--and so it connecting only half way.
If mechanically minded you can remove the tray mechanism and reset the tray to the gear position in the DVD play/stop position.

The agitator arm is intermittent on my ultimate care II

If this just a simple matter of the agitator not working, but everything else does, you may just have a worn agitator cam assembly, worn agitator dogs, loose agitator bolt, or all of the above. The following link explains what agitator dogs are and how to access them:

Whirlpool manufactured washers use a split agitator design. The top half is known as the "auger, while the lower half is the agitator. Between the two pieces is a cam assembly, with small teflon teeth known as "dogs". There's also an agitator bolt that holds the entire assembly to the center post.

If the auger (top half of the agitator) is slipping, I would suspect the dogs or cam assembly need to be replaced. The part number for the dogs is included in the link I provided. For a little more you can purchase the entire cam assembly which includes the dogs, the cam, the cam seal and thrust bearing.

If the entire agitator appears loose or slipping, check the agitator bolt to ensure it is tight. DO NOT overtighten as this can restrict movement of the agitator or damage it. Tighten until snug.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I listed also include helpful exploded view parts diagrams to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. If you do not wish to order parts on line, use the part numbers from the Sears website and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. All these parts are commonly sold as part of their in-store inventory.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

I think you will find that the VCR has gone out of sequence. The VCR thinks it is in a loaded state and not in the ejected state of play. The cause of it could be complex or simple. However the most likely cause is a faulty mode switch. It will need to be replaced and that is not often easy. The mode switch will have to be in a certain position, to ensure the correct sequence again. VCR's have different set up positions. Some for example have to be set up as if the tape was loaded up. You will need a service manual for this for certain. This is due to the need to get various parts in the right order. Otherwise you will never get it to operate in the right way.
I should point out though mode switches do wear out, it may not be the sole cause, as all you need is one broken cog or broken part and the whole mechanism will go out of sequence.
There is also the microproccessor chip that works out what mode the VCR is in, from the signals it gets from the mode switch. It is rare for these to go, but they can go wrong.
I would like to stress again, without the service manual you haven't a hope of setting the VCR up.
