    I have had this unit for many years, and have only used the VHS function a couple of times a few years ago. I am trying to record my Childrens VHS tapes for my grandchild​ren and when I put the VHS in, it stops and grabs a piece of the tape when I try to remove it. I have lost the manual, so I have no "trou​ble shooting&q​uot; info. Can you please tell me what to do. Area fix-it shops ar3e telling me to toss it and toss the VHS tapes too. I am fairly good at tech proceedure​s, and really would love to try to get this running.
