Sony time lapse vcr

Hi all,

I picked up a Sony SVT-L200 time lapse vcr. The electronic functions seem to
work ok (date/time onscreen programming etc), but the tape will physically
not go in. I opened it up and can't see anything obvious, it slides part way
in but the motors don't take over and it can't be pushed any further.

It's been quite a number of years since I've worked inside a vcr - I forget
all the terminology for one thing. Are there any good sites or other places
to look for ideas on what might be wrong?

I'd also like to find a user manual for the unit.
