Question about Symphonic WF802

1 Answer

VCR stops, ejects, eats tapes

We have a Symphonic WF802 DVD/VCR combo. The DVD player works fine, but the VCR has quit working. When we put a tape in, it gets stuck midway, the VCR shuts off, and the tape gets stuck. It won't play at all. Occasionally the video will make it all the way in and then the tape will come out and get stuck when ejected. Any guidance on how to fix this so we can play a video again?

    We can put a VCR tape in and it will begin to play for a brief 3-5 seconds and then it will turn itself off. What could be the problem?

I also have a 19" Symphonic tv vcr combo which

The problem is with the vcr section, it is stuck in eject mode thinking there is a tape. This a mechanical problem that might be repairable. The tv and vcr share some of the same circuits, you can try resetting the tray in the out position as if it fully ejected the tape. Now if this does not work it means you have a gear timing problem or bad sensor.

VHS tape plays for a few seconds and automatically ejects

My guess would be dirt on the rollers inside the VCR. They sesnse a jam and ejct. Try a VCR cleaner (with cleaning fluid) and see if that helps.

VCR eating tapes when attempting to rewind

VCRs are so cheaply priced these days that it's not worth the time and trouble to fix them or have them repaired. If you fix one worn or slipping belt, another problem isn't far behind.
