I wish to recommend, with vigor, John's TV, for the excellent service to my beloved JVC-7800U.
Located in Taunton, MA, it was just a 25 minute drive there from my nest in North Attleboro.
This man is smart, nice, and TALENTED, and I feel, very reasonable.
The machine is purring like a happy kitty.
I have attached his invoice, with the price deleted, though it was well under $200.
One-by-one I will give him my selected players, and trust his skills.

Recently I scored a nice condition S4800U for $10 and a 25 minute drive.
The machine, when tested, intermittently would chow on a tape.
So, I brought it to my new go-to guy, John. The invoice is attached.
Basically the idler clutch was full of old hard grease, and unable to get a new one, John cleaned and lubed the clutch, checked caps, cleaned everything else, retimed, adjust pots, you need to read the invoice. $130.
He stated the machine is in excellent condition with no wear on the video heads heads and I done good.
I now have a JVC-4800, refurbed, for an investment of $140.
You'll see in my previous post he also refurbed my 7800U, that was $160.
This is a good smart guy.

Cost of shipping to?
From?

JVCs S-VHS only?
Or Panasonics too, ie full recap jobs?

Any general rules on what cannot be fixed?

List of standard service and inspection?

For some reason, I keep thinking you're in OR. But you're ion the other coast, MA?

South of Boston.
I am unsure of the scope of his service but he’s on the internet
and he’s got a nice big shop. Call or email him. https://www.johnstvllc.com/
My next task for him is either my Toshiba W808 or my BVP4+.
After those items I’ll be in great shape.

Bumping this post- I have a European JVC HR-S9600EU I'm looking to get serviced. Any chance he's able to fix a unit with all European tech specs inside?

John is good at answering emails and phone calls so he’s the one to ask. Good question, though.
