Question about Panasonic PV-V4524 VCR
Dear Tim, In all likelihood the belts of your VCR have become old and worn. I suggest you unplug the machine, and open the bottom plate. You will now be able to see the Drive belts. Go to a Spare parts shop and buy a Belts set for your nodel from them, and replace. Also, try changing the REW/FF Idler unit. This should do the trick.

Pravin is right on with the likely problem(s). Belt & rubber drive tire problems were very common especially on older VCRs ('80s early '90s). Late VCRs used fewer belts (often only 1 or 2). Also, the idler should move freely- I've seen a few cases where the grease at the pivot pin had dried or become "gummy."
