Panasonic NV7200 toploader

FF & REW reluctantly, play engages with the tape loaded round the head but pinch roller not fully engaged and tape not advancing.
Any ideas? This was my parents vcr and I know had no servicing at all.

Thanks.

Machine cleaned out with relevant ’cleaners’ & air, molykote lithium grease on moving parts, full replacement belt set fitted, other servicing work done (you know the type of stuff - specific parts cleaning, visual checking, etc).
Now working well 📼
Even found a remote control handset online to complete🙂

Good to know that gremlins can still be exorcised.

Is there a converter to change RF analog to hdmi? This vcr is ‘pre-scart ’.......
The only other output connectors - one phono (audio - mono?) and one bnc (I guess video)
Perhaps there’s a thread on here already but searching shows nothing.

Found an analog option hidden away in the tv’s menu's under broadcasting.
