    Possibly try a repairer, as they may have junked a few. In my experiance, the PSU's in most Panasonic VCRs tend to suffer from Dryed up Capacitors... the first one to check is the 1uF 400 volt beast in the primary of the PSU. I Have found replacing all the electros in these PSU's generally brings them back to life.
