Our MBK-103 series of parts covers about three VCR models by Hitachi and RCA.
The on-line database has been set up to direct you to the proper rubber replacement or maintenance kit for your VCR.  Even though every precaution has been taken to assure the accuracy of the database, mistakes can be made.  If you have doubts about the pictured VCR being similar to yours please check the chassis photos below.  If you feel that we've made a mistake, please E-Mail us   and let us know.

We have several rubber replacement kits and a maintenance and overhaul kit for these VCRs that were manufactured by Hitachi under the Hitachi and RCA brands.





MBK-103:
Belt Kit
Our MBK-103 kit contains all three belts that are used in these VCRs.   The belts are used for loading and unloading the tape, and also for driving the sensor that controls the tape counter. Common belt problems are failure to load tape, attempting to load the tape and then abruptly unloading, or failure of the counter to move properly.  It is also common for bad belts to cause the VCR to attempt to power up then shut down.    Bad loading belts are also sometimes known to produce an audible "squeal" during the loading process.  Your price for our MBK-103 kit is $5.95.
