Hitachi, Minolta, JC Penney, Pentax, Pioneer, RCA, and Sears VCR replacement parts kits.
The on-line database has been set up to direct you to the proper rubber replacement or Maintenance kit for your VCR.  Even though every precaution has been taken to assure the accuracy of the database, mistakes can be made.  If you have doubts about the pictured VCR being similar to yours please check the chassis photos below.  If you feel that we've made a mistake, please E-Mail us   and let us know.


We have several kits for these VCRs, manufactured by Hitachi.


MBK-60
Belt Kit
Contains all six belts that are used in these VCRs.   The most common symptom of  bad belts is the VCR will be unable to go into the play or record mode - it will load the tape around the video drum, but will shut down before the tape starts to move.   You may also hear a squealing sound at this point as the belts start slipping.   Other symptoms of worn-out belts include mangled tape hanging out of the cassette if either of the capstan belts fail, or the idler drive belt breaks or slips.  Sometimes the VCR will shut down after a few seconds when you first power it up.   You may hear a motor running as the VCR tries to initialize. 
Your price for our MBK-60 kit is $12.95.
