You might try or  These supply some parts for VCRs.  The consumer electronics service sector has dramatically declined over the last 15 years or so, and I'm sure alot of parts suppliers have likewise disappeared. 

Unfortunately, VCRs, TVs and other electronics are essentially disposable.  Maybe manufacturers don't even stock many replacement parts for some of their products.

Vcr and tv does not work due belt broke. I tried to find part for that.

Have you tried the vcr/tv repair shops, they usually carry a lot of different sizes of belts. Radio Shack might be a possibility, liquidation stores.

No video on playback after recording

There is a circuit within the VCR called an RF Converter. This is the circuit that converts the audio and video signals into the RF channel 3 or 4. It sounds like the vidoe is not being processed or the video is not being sent to the converter. Without tracing the video inside the VCR, I can't tell which is the problem here. You can try to play the tape in "review" mode (hit play then FF) and see if you get any video signal. If you do, then there is a possibility that the heads are clogged and need to be cleaned.

Please try that and update this with the results.

How to use my Zenith VRB4215 VCR with my new LG

please refer to this picture:

Rather than use the method in the picture above you should use the audio L+R and video OUT on your VCR and connect these three to the color matching audio IN and video IN ports on your television. The colors are red, and white for audio and yellow for the video. If you do not own a cable like this simply pick one up at radio shack they will know exactly what you need. The pictured method will work also but the picture and sound quality will not be the best possible.

Remember you are sending data OUT from the VCR and IN to the TV

R49W36 that cuts off and on

Hi, your other option is to talk to other repair shops in your area, or call zenith (LG) and ask for repair shops they recommend, tech u talked to wants the easy way out rather than troubleshooting the board to find the 1,2, or 3 parts that are actually bad, be advised that the good old zeniths are now owned by LG industries and contrary to the tv commercials that tell you "LG" = lifes good, it actually stands for lucky goldstar the korean outfit that has owned zenith for quite awhile now, sad but true, video-tek

No video on VHS tapes playback. on a Zenith VR4257HF

Sounds like the video heads are worn and time to replace them. You can try Asti Magnetics. The part number you are looking for is "378". Sells for $55 plus shipping. A bit cheaper but quality parts. I've dealt with them in the past. You can decide if the VCR is worth it to repair.

ALL cable is digital.
What type of TV do you have? Does it have any scart conections on it? If not connect the Cable box with a scart lead to your VCR select the AV channel on your VCR, connect your VCR to your TV via the RF connection, (if it has not got one, its not a TV, its a monitor). Tune your TV in to the video channel.
You do not need an RF modulator for a home TV setup, whoever told you that is a fool.
