Default Re: JVC HR-D120 VCR Won't Start

Congrats. Does the mechanism work? The most common problem with this JVC chassis is the leaf switch on the bottom that closes when the tape is threaded. If it fails, the loading motor will continue to run even if the tape is threaded and that will blow a fuse on the bottom PCB or it will just never go to play mode. This usually needs to be replaced.
