Hello
My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with this.

I don`t even need to know the model number to figure out that the vhs has got a defective take-up reel ,or belt and the again possibly capstan motor

If i haven`t repaired 10, 000 vhs vcr in my life then its none so i know exactly what i`m talking about , so much so that i know that now you would not find a repair shop that would even look at it or make it worthwhile to repair

Long story short , your best bet is a new unit , they sell under $100 now
