Beta VCR shuts off

    I have a Sanyo SuperBeta VCR-7250.

    When I put a tape in, the tape completes its "expansion" around that tape
    path, but never quite gets tights and the tape mechanism shuts down.

    I understand that the 2 likely suspects are the idler wheel and the reel
    sensors. I cleaned the idler wheel with no change and I have no idea where
    to find reel sensors.. .if this model even has them.

    Any suggestions and/or corrections?? Thanks,

  2. Could the loading belt(s) be slipping?

    Hi Mark,

    The tape pulls in and wraps around the spinning video head and all. It's
    just that when the drive motors are supposed to start, they don't and video
    section shuts down. Lar
