My vcr won't play tapes

I bought a Emerson vcr to clean my moldy tapes and when I got home to try and see if it worked it would not play the tape (I tried multiple tapes) it won't fast forward nor rewind and when I tired to see if the motor worked manually it did but it won't work when I put tapes in it also shuts off after seconds of putting a tape in

When my vcr plays cassettes that have been taped in Ep mode, the picture is fuzzy and barely detectable. Why?


The tracking is not working right ir the silver wheel has dirt on it that comes from playing tapes. First I'd try cleaning it with 91% ipa(alcohol)

You will need to dive into it. but usually you threw or snapped a drive belt. there is usually at least 3 different ones possibly more.

I watched several YouTube videos and I check the belts (mine only seems to have one, if thats normal) it looked fine... I don't know if something is broken or caroted and the inside looks pretty new


does it FF/RW tapes? with the cover off does the big silver with lines wheel keep turning?
