  1. Who sells a belt/tire kit is for a JVC hr-vp830u?

    I find a few belts that x-ref to it, but maybe not all of them, and no
    wheels or tires.

    Thanks.

    Have you tried JVC Service Dept?
     
  3. At http://www.jvcservice.com/store/ they sell remotes and cables and such.
    I didn't try calling them though.

    MCM has some belts, but I think a rubber idler wheel might be the problem.
    I thought there would be a kit with the whole set.

    A long time ago there used to be an outfit called PRB - they carried
    all sorts of replacement belts and pulleys...but I think I remember
    seeing a post here that they were bought out by another company.
    Sorry, I can't remember the name.

    Also, at the risk of stating the obvious, have you tried rubber
    cleaner/reconditioner fluid?
     
  5. Never heard of it actually. Thanks. Google finds rubber stamp cleaner
    (maybe the same?) and a guy who recommends GoJo hand cleaner. Do you know
    another product?

    I have some stuff called Rubber Renew, it works pretty well.

    Don't waste time with 'rubber repairers'. if the rubber is on its way
    out, you're just putting off the inevitable. for a reliable fix
    replace the parts.

    Molgar have them, as do (i think) SEME and CHS

    fair point - I have successfully resurfaced rubber idler tyres and
    rollers, ( in vcrs, printers etc) often by just giving 'em a once-over
    with fine sandpaper or an emery board. On more serious cases , on
    especially hard-to-find parts (like idler drive 1960s record players)
    putting the part in a lathe to rotate it 'evenly' as you 'sand' it is
    a good way.

    Anyway i digress - since we're talking belts here, I have found these
    to be far less likely to respond well over the long term to
    'rejuvenation' - best to replace, they're generally far cheaper than
    idlers anyway

    Automotive brake fluid is a good rubber cleaner/conditioner.
    Wipe on, wait a day, rinse off excess.

    Aged rubber will oxidize and crack, the conditioner won't always
    bring it back.
