    I've been working on this old VCR circa 1996 just because the stuff
    available now is total junk. I've gone through it and replaced all
    belts, mode switch, regreased, and retimed it. I was going to replace
    the pinch roller, but the one they sent me didn't fit.The VCR powers up, takes a tape fine, but when you push play, rew, or ff,
    it just shuts down. I've heard power supplies can be a problem on
    Panasonics, but would this VCR fit in the time frame of the bad supplies?
    I was also thinking a bad tape sensor, but I figured I'd post here first
    to see where the experts would go next. Any ideas?

    Update: I took the tape out, and put it back in, and it jumped time.
    Now the strange part of this is, I got all the marks lined up, and it's got
    a new cam gear, cassette carriage, and mode switch. What would make it
    jump time? All new parts, you'd think it wouldn't do that.
