Re: Re: videe doesnt eject automatically

chris Posted Jan 12, 2005, in response to:Eric S.

Hello, There is no cassette stuck in the unit. When I feed the cassette into the housing it does'nt take over. So I manually turn on a little wheel (right hand side of cassette housing)that feeds the tape to the bottom of the housing. When the tape has reached there the video recorder detects the tape and I can play the tape. I do the same when ejecting. manually turn a wheel so that the tape is fed out of the cassette housing. The cassette housing works smoothly. I think it is a switch or something that normally detects the tape being inserted into the cassette housing and than automatically feeds the tape to the bottom of the housing. Thanx for the reply.

    Can you see what actually drives the cassette housing assy? It is usually a small gear located on the lower right side looking from the front. This gear engages a gear on the VCR deck. When a cassette is inserted, you should feel resistance as these gears mesh. This in turn causes a rotary encoder (switch) to change position and sense that a cassette has entered the unit. This activates a loading motor that drives the two meshed gears in order to load the cassette. When the cassette reaches the bottom of the housing assy the gears unmesh and two photo sensors detect the cassette in the loaded position. Now the above loading motor is directed to load the tape around the cylinder assy, where the heads are located and play the tape when you press the play button. This is how the NTSC version operates.
