    I've a VCR Philips VR630.
    The problem is that when I put in a tape and give a little
    push...... nothing happened!

    Is this the case that the whole mechanism has to be re-initialised?

    Can someone give a little hint before I buy a service-manual?

    Thanks in advance!

    If this model has an incandescent video lamp, then I'd suspect that.
    It should be in the middle of the deck, half way between the supply
    and takeup reels, and at about the level of the tension arms. It is
    designed to sit inside the hole in the bottom of your cassette.

    While you're at it, I suggest you put a kit through it, ie video
    belts, idler tyre(s), pinch roller, tension band, mode switch.
