When this unit was new, about three months into the ownership it wouldn't play, I opened it up
jvc hr-s3500u vcr ' video head not spinning
and I could see the video head was not spinning when it was supposed to be.
The service center restored functionality and they told me a protection circuit was involved.
Fast Forward (excuse the pun) many years and a similar thing has happened.
As before, the tape loads, it goes through the motions, the tape is wrapped around the drum,
but the head is stationary. Thank goodness the eject button still works.
Ring any bells with anybody?
Appreciate any info.
