Philips Magnavox VRA670AT21 VCR tries to spin belt, then shuts down
My Philips Magnavox VRA670AT21 was working fine, and once when I tried to put a tape in, the loading mechanism went down without the tape in it. Now it won't eject, and whenever I plug it in the loading motor spins but the belt does not move. It shuts down after a few seconds of that. I cleaned the belt but it didn't change it. What should I do? Thank you for any help.

I have purchased a new VCR/CD player. I tried everything, but nothing worked. I did purchase another Magnavox, but if this machine does not perform any longer than the first one, I will not purchase another one. The reason I purchased a Magnavox this time was that there were no other products available in my town.
Try putting in a VCR tape let it load and hit stop. If the set stays on it's the VCR deck causing the problem. It will be either be bad sensors or LED or possibly the mode switch. Let me know if this helps.
The tape player section has some safety sensors inside that will shutdown the system when there is a problem. The most common cause of this is either a bad belt or "idler". If the tape is not moving or the take up side is not moving, this will happen. This is a simple repair for any shop and should runfrom $5-$25 for parts (belt - idler) plus the local labor rate.
on my magnavox mwr20v6 i cant record my vhs to dvd i get black screen every time and my DVD are new and I just open my magnavox after a long long time and ecsup for get my VHS record to DVD it is fine I would like to fix this issue :(
What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming.
The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine.
