My VCR won't rewind....Need Help.

    For some reason my VCR stopped rewinding. It Fast-Forwards with no
    problem. In search mode (as the tape is playing) it will Rewind and FF
    without a problem. It's just that it won't rewind when the tape isn't
    playing.

    A few days ago the picture got really screwed up on it and I opened it
    up to see if there was any way to fix it. I managed to fix the
    picture, but when I tried rewinding the tape it just acted like it was
    rewinding for a second or two, but nothing actually happened. The VCR
    then grabbed the tape just like it does when a tape is being played,
    but without advancing the tape. I fear that maybe while i had it open
    I may have knocked somehting out of place or flipped some lever by
    mistake. I am fairly certain that I didn't break anything, but rather
    just knocked something out of place.

    Any suggestions on how to fix it???
