I have the above referenced Sony combo DVD/VCR
It was working fine over a 2 day period.
I inserted an old VHS tape ( 20/25 years old)
The tape would not play/ would not eject and unit powered off.
Whenever I would turn the unit on. The display screen would show Line 1, some dotted lines then Power off.
I opened unit up and was able to manually eject tape.
I tries unit again with tape that previously played - same reaction as above
I did notice that on the side of the "cage" that holds the tape there is a small motor which turns a 1 inch "screw"
the 1" screw turns a white cog that engages a larger black cog which appears to have something to do with accepting and ejecting the tapes
the white cog appears to have "shear" connectors that have broken off - so the white cog no longer turns the larger black cog
see image attached.
Can i still get this VCR repaired?
Would anyone know a repair source in the tristate NYC area: New York/New Jersey /Connecticut?
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
