Old Zenith VCR/No response to Power Button
> I have an old Zenith VCR, model VR2000. It was made around 1984,

try lubricating the big cam wheel with a little WD-40
this can be done without dissasembling anything
the old lubrication looses its slippery properties and
becomes like glue...a litttle WD-40 will reactivate the old lubricant
....ive never done one twice....
