the head may be dirty, clean it by using a cleaning cassete, maybe its playing but can not produce a clear picture, not able to produce a clear picture would automatically change the display to blue.

SOURCE: Camera control buttons do not work, stop, play etc

your flexible control panel cable may have torn ( from loading and unloading ) - if there are leds ? in yours , the replacement part often does not have them ( many users miss them ) ; get an estimate , before committing to repairs on a 7 year old camera ( starts at $ 50 plus parts and shipping , here in puerto rico ) ;

SOURCE: VCR stops playing

A couple of possibilities: the bad electronics unit might have power supply problems, optical sensor problems, or other problems with the electronics. If you have some tech savvy and a voltmeter, you could check the power supply voltages. This circuit is likely in the close vicinity of the fuse. On the output side you should see a +5 volt, +12 to 15 volt, and perhaps a -35 volt (approx). The +5 supplies the logic circuit, +12 the motors. If these voltages are missing, or way out of tolerance, you will have a dead unit. A frequent cause of problems in the supply is bad electrolytic capacitors, especially in the older units (Panasonic manufactured rigs, late '80s/early '90s). Possible values on these capacitors: 2200MFD/10V 1000MFD/16V and several others. Replacements can be supplied by MCM electronics, Mouser electronics. I use the Panansonic FC series from Digi-Key Electronics. Sensor problems: Many VCRs have the sensor opticals mounted on the main circuit board, and locate themselves in particular spots in the mechanical section. One or more sensors detect tape loaded, one each for the supply & takeup spindles. If any of these sensors (especially the supply/takeup sensors) are non-working, the logic circuit will detect an error condition, and shut down the unit or at least put it into a stop mode.

Take out the tape and press play, do the wheels move? if not the motor has burnt out, the tapes may have been sticky. Hold a tape and wind the wheels with your finger, are they difficult to move?

The DVD works fine but the VCR doesn't play, rewind or forward tape.


l would have a look inside to see if when a tape is inserted it loads and will ff and rew, if the transport that moves the tape has failed it will account for what is happening.

I push play and it stops after 2 seconds, same with rew, and fwd


Is the tape actually moving when you initiate transport commands? Most machines are smart enough to know something isn't moving when it should be. That it fails in BOTH FF and REW suggests the reels aren't moving to take up slack. Cheap machines use glorified rubber bands as drive belts for the reels. Without specifics re: make/model we can't get too precise with an answer. I'd have a pro look at it.

NAKAMICHI CASSETTE DECK 1 NOT PLAYING?


it has probably thrown the capstan belt and will require a new belt fitted. the transport relies on capstan rotation to engage play. a separate reel motor operates ff/rew and takeup funtions

The VHS cleaning cassette possibly deposited fiber in the heads in the drum. You may need to open the cabin and examine the heads and the mechanism for foreign matterial.
