Hello, my name is***** be happy to assist you.
Please allow me to ask you a few questions to diagnose the problem.
- When you put C-VHS tape in adapter, does it load the tape internally?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes it goes into the adapter

C-VHS tapeg goes into adapter then adapter should load the tape and you will hear motor and gear sound when shut the door of adapter.
Does it happen?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

no motor or gear sound. i presume it need power, but how?

OK, it needs power to run the mechanism inside, please slide a cover up to remove it located on left side above the red triangle and take out the battery, put fresh AA battery and put the cover on it, now insert the C-VHS tape into adapter and check.
Does it load the tape and red triangle goes inside adapter so the adapter can go into VHS player?
Please reply back with the result.
