Funai model SVG-4100 VCR: Replaced belts and tape eject

Customer Question

Funai model SVG-4100 VCR: Replaced belts and tape eject works great. In PLAY,FF, or REW, it makes some noise like it is trying to run, but stops and shuts off VCR. Any input?

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, post back with clear closeup picture of the top and bottom of the VCR deck / mechanism. Please click HERE.

Still and based on the described "...PLAY,FF, or REW, it makes some noise like it is trying to run, but stops and shuts off VCR...", the proposed preliminary check would be on the:

  • • brake & clutch;
  • • idler gear.
