I need help with my VCR

Hi,

I have the Toshiba VE15, and I have no idea why every cassette I put in it, it just ejects it right out, but if I press play quickly, It does play, but I have no why to reverse the tape to the beginning so I can record the cassette from the beginning.

 

Thank you everyone for your response

My guess would be that the mechanism is either dirty or corroded. I'd suggest opening it up an having a look, see if anything is obviously not moving as it should.

Looked at some manuals for it, and I'm kind of at a loss.

Kinda wished that I could be there to figure out what the hell's up with it. I guess all I can ask is is the VCR ejecting the tapes directly after putting them in or ejecting them after the VCR spools the tapes up?

I put the cassette in, it gets in, and make some noise, and then it ejects the cassette.

 

But now it became worse,

Now it takes a few power on and off cycles for it to ejects it, sometime it does ejects, and sometimes its leaves the cassette in, and just powers off itself

Hmm, alright.

I'm thinking that something on the board might be failing altogether.

How do I open it?

 

I tried looking for screws on the bottom, but there aren't any over there

VHS players are notoriously finicky devices and when the mechanics get out of alignment (even a little) all hell can break loose.  It is often hard to find exactly where the fault lay if it is a mechanical fault or even one of the sensors (usually just mechanical switches) without a repair manual.

The screws for that unit should be on the back where  the top and sides are folded over.   The whole top and sides come off as one piece (a bit like an old PC case).

 

 

QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.

Holy shit what year is it? 

 

Open it up and blow out the decades of dust that would have accumulated in there. Provided it wasn't bumped/dropped/stored wrong, if it used to work, then it should still after a clean out

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

 

Don't dilute <good thing> by always trying to focus on, and drag conversation back to, <bad thing>.
