Question about VCRs
Some thing wrong in mechanism of vcr. Please take off top cover of vcr and turn back loading motor manually to eject cassette. Loading motors in VCRs usually rotates worm gear to start loading / unloading in vcr mechanism. in your case, it seems loading motor / worm gear is stuck. I hope, rotating manually will release it and vcr will start work normally.

My guess is that the tape got wrapped around the capstan shaft so it
can't be pulled back into the cassette so that it can be ejected.
Somebody will have to disassemble part of the camcorder and manually
unwind the tape from around the shaft. Unless you are nimble of
hands and fingers, have a well lit work surface and possess jewelers
tools, that job is best left to a repair person.
