Belt, tire and pinch roller kit
Our MBK-73P kit contains all four belts that are used in these VCRs, plus the
pinch roller and the idler tire. The belts are used to drive the clutch that drives the reels and for loading and unloading. Common problems are no play, poor picture, or lines in the picture It is also common for bad belts to cause the VCR to attempt to power up then shut down.
A bad idler tire can cause problems such as no FF/REW, wont play, shuts down in play or FF/REW
modes, or eats tape.
The pinch roller is responsible for accurately and smoothly moving the tape
along by pressing the tape against the capstan motor shaft. Problems with
a bad pinch roller include tracking issues, edge-of-tape damage, and
intermittent loss of audio/video. Your price for our MBK-73PT kit is $21.95.
