VCR turned off insert tape, now no power on after manual removal Can't Post

Lately when I insert tape into VCR, the VCR would turn off. After pressing power button to turn back on it would work fine. Last night I put in a tape and instead of the VCR turning itself off, it just kept blinking on, off, on, off, etc. Power button and remote would not stop it. Unplugging did, but soon as plugged back in, it continued the on/off cycle. Couldnt eject tape. Finally unplugged, removed cover, and attempted to remove tape. Couldn't turn the gears manually, until I removed the little motor that has the gear connected to the other gears. Was able to turn manually the larger gears to eject tape. Reinstalled the motor, and now VCR will not turn on at all. Sometimes when I plug it in, I get a faint green light that pulsates, and the heads try to turn (wiggle back and forth) for a few minutes, then all goes dead. Other times nothing happens when I plug it in. I imagine the little motor is in wrong position ? for VCR to turn on, but don't know how or if I can remedy this. Help?

Searching for 'VCR' gives "About 38,800,000 results (0.27 seconds)."

I don't have the patience to check every result. Care to narrow it down a little?

I'll try to get pictures posted soon. Parents gave me their JVC which is supposed to work, will hook it up later today. But if I can repair mine, I'd still like it for backup, so will continue with this thread. Busy weekend, back next week. Thanks!
