This is what I have done in the past: Take a good tape of little value. For instance a promotional tape. Open both the good and bad tape. Discard the actual tape of the VHS cass. that works. Transplant the tape from the defective cass. in the working housing. And presto, one restored VHS cass. (if the actual tape is damaged byond repair this will not solve your problem).
