Unfortunately during a quick test right before this listing while entering the VHS tape, the tape never made it completely into the chassis and got stuck. I didn't try to physically remove it or take the unit apart at all. The front of the unit was lit up properly when powered up but seconds after the tape was inserted the unit shut off. It does power on when pressing the on button and you can here the tape trying to insert/or eject but then the unit shuts itself off again because the tape is stuck. I simply just don't have the time to take it apart and repair it and I would assume it may possibly need a new belt.
I also didn't try ejecting the tape many times at all to avoid burning out the motor or cause any damage. The manual and remote alone are probably almost impossible to find anymore and there is a ton of information in the manual (151 pages). The remote control is in excellent condition with no battery leaks ever.Definitely a neat collector item if anything. From a smoke-free climate controlled environment. See pictures for more details!
