Re: [NestGear] Mitsubishi HS-M1000 S-VHS - load failed

I have stripped the mechanism
This applies to the deck mechanism?
Be advised: working mechanisms 'by hand' that most parts are plastics, most parts are hard to come by and your strength could easily force part(s) to break.
With cassette housing removed and a tape placed at opening, as Gear - Worm - F/L is rotated the cassette will be taken in (applying small pressure to tape to guide in) and lowered to fully down condition. Reverse worm gear rotation direction and cassette will be ejected. This proves Cassette Housing mechanism is timed correctly. Set housing aside.
Next on the deck there is a loading motor. On it's shaft will be, as they call them, a coupling, a worm gear and a pulley. Any can develop a lengthwise crack that allows motor shaft to spin without turning them. If you turn these in one direction (If fully into Eject, nothing will happen turning in the other direction), the deck mechanism (IF 'In time' with NO broken parts or foreign material) should be able to load the mechanism into its fully loaded condition. Be advised, you may have to 'help.' For example as supply side loading post slides back, you may have to help tension arm positioning it so it doesn't jam.
IF your quote applies to deck mechanism, I fully expect that deck mechanism will jam.
