What is the best material used to replace a worn out VCR brake pads? I have a JVC HR-S4800U here on the bench that needs all pads replaced.

Came across this thread via Search so I figured I would answer just in case someone else comes across this in the future.

I ended up replacing my brake pads by removing the old pads and cleaning the surface with 91% Alcohol. I then attached a 4mm strip of Tesa Tape to a chamois cloth (about 3" in length to make it easier to grip when cutting). Then I cut the sizes I needed and then attached the cut pieces to the locations where the old pads were removed.

I do a lot of small electronics repairs so Tesa Tape is thin and sticky and is what I chose to use. Also, if you don't have any chamois cloths laying around, you could check and see if you have any mechanics gloves laying around. I had a few pair laying around and they had chamois material on the bottoms where I could have cut and used that instead. Just make sure yours aren't greasy/dirty etc.

Any link to Tesa tape? My brake pads are like 2mmx8mm and about 1mm thick so I would give a chamois cloth a try. Thanks

What are the symptoms of worn brake pads? I have a HR-S7500U here that doesn't properly tension on the takeup reel side after fast forwarding....which leads to eaten tapes if you don't rewind for a second to re-tension the threaded tape. Also a detailed how-to on R&R would be helpful, this will likely be a problem on many decks in the future.

That's exactly the symptom, tape will slack in either fast forward or fast rewind depends on which brake pads are bad.

Tesa Tape
2mm
3mm
4mm

Those links are for the Black 61395 tape. They also make a Red 4965 tape, which would work as well, however, the black is just a little bit stronger so that's what I use.

Yup, that's definitely worn brake pads.
