    I recently purchased a well used Panasonic AG-1970 S-VHS VCR. Thing
    works great except for the noise produced while loading and unloading
    tapes. Sounds to me like the tape loading portions of the transport
    are in need of some grease. Question is, what grease or oil should I
    be using for this task?

    Assuming its not clicking noises or squeels, ie just normal but exagerated
    mechanical movement noises, then I've only ever used silicone grease

    Machine lubricate oil, cheap at Wal-mart. They also sell brain stimulator.

    I came across this awhile ago when I was looking to do a VCR repair. See
    info for 'GC Electronics White Lithium Lubricant'. It's about 3/4 of the way
    down this page on the right hand side. Also a lot of tools and parts for
    VCR's. I don't have personal experience ordering from them, so you're on
    your own.
