VCR not playing tape.
I have a Zenith VCR that I’m trying to get working. When I found it in my garage, I would turn it on, it would make a sound then turn off. Since then, I’ve taken it apart and cleaned every inch of it and oiled and greeced the parts that needed it.
The VCR now turns on, takes the tape, ejects it, fast forwards and reverses just fine. But when I press play, the arms take the tape up to the head, the head spins but the tape never rolls. Ive taken apart the wheel that spins the tape, cleaned and oiled it. Now the tape fast forwards and rewinds better but does not play the tape.
I don’t know what else to do. I wanted to try asking here before I went out and purchased a new one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
