I know wrong sub forum, but there isn't one for VCRs. Yes that's right a few us haven't quite relinquished/replaced our considerable VCR collections, and still use VCRs from time to time. Needlees to say X-mas in my house wasn't the same without the Griswolds. I have a Sony SLV679HF that refuses to accept tapes. I also have a Sony SLV900HF that refuses to play tapes. It will eject the instant I push play, or after about 10 seconds or less. Needless to say I am NOT interested in purchasing a VCR/DVD combo, as I already have a nice DVD player in this room anyhow, and 9 times out of 10 those things die after about 6-12 months anyhow(at the first one we bought did). I see that NOBODY sells straight up VCRs anymore(I found one alleged new one on Amazon for $400.00:eek: ). So repair is my only option. TIA

The first link looks like a basic description of how VCRs work. The second one has nothing that seems to help.

My specific problems are that I have one VCR that won't accept a tape, and another that ejects the tape within 10 seconds of inserting the tape.

I knew I shoulda bought 3 or 4 spare plain jane VCRs when they hit $50.00 5 or 6 years ago...
