I discovered this morning that my VCR had died. I put a tape in and nothing but a horrible grinding noise came out. The tape won’t even eject.
That’s life I guess. Granted, the VCR has been sitting unused next to my TV doing the thing for the past three years, so I’m not too broken up about it.
It’s just one less device cluttering up a shelf and a TV input. Just goes to show that in the DVR and DVD age it’s not uncommon for a VCR to go completely unused for three freaking years.
