Thanks for your reply
That's right, there is no tape, and the VCR behaves as if the tape is inside
I didnít take out the whole mechanism, just the plate holding the tape down. And since I brought it back, it's been standing down, and it won't even go back manually, so I can't put the new tape in the VCR. I also turned the belt, it wasn't worth it. And I wonder why not a single gear will move either left or right...
This VCR has worked perfectly for more than 10 years, and now for the second time this same problem
I looked at the service manual, but I did not find a solution.

I took out the mechanism. Can you tell from the pictures if something is wrong?
The black gear on the left side doesn't rotate. Only when I turn the belt, gear spin very little and stop.
