    Model - SHARP VC-MH64. This video recorder stops playing tapes, it use
    to get about half way through the tape but now only plays a fe
    minuites before stopping. On rewinding the tape it is meant t
    automatically slow down before it gets to the end, this also doesn'
    work any longer. Any ideas

    Here are some guesses:
    1. Bad or dirty tape..... try others
    2. Dirty tape transport and heads.
    3. Bad clutch
    4. Slipping belts and/or pinch roller
    5. Dirty mode switch
    6. Bad tape motion sensors
    7. Bad idler mechanism
    8. Faulty back-tension mechanism

    Go to the website for this newsgrouup at
    there, with some searching, you will find a wealth of troubleshooting and
    repair tips..... or if that doesn't help, TAKE it to a repair shop for, at
    the very least, a repair cost estimate so you can make an intelligent repair
    decision with facts instead of guesses
