VCR Not Accepting Certain VHS Tape

Hello,

There's a VHS tape I got at a garage sale not too long ago that the VCR (I have a DVD/VCR combo) will not accept. It will go in, but ejects after a second or two. I tried other VHS tapes and they all worked just fine. It seems to be just that one tape the VCR isn't accepting, but there does not appear to be anything out of the ordinary with it. Any suggestions?

Thanks

I had this happen once and all I did to correct it was to fast forward it just slightly or manually wind it past the leader strip (the clear or white part at the beginning). To do it manually, there is a small hole you must insert a toothpick (or something else as small) to push the pin in and then advance it with your finger while holding the pin in. Hope this helps.

Vhs tape is stuck and message reads "tape


Unplug the TV/VCR/DVD Combo from the main power for a couple of minutes, the unit may eject the tape at the power ON.
You can also try openening the unit, reset the loading posts and eject the tape by manually turning gears, motors etc..You have to know what you're doing otherwise, you will do more damage or get injured and don't forget HIGH VOLTAGE CAN KILL.

VHS tape plays for a few seconds and automatically ejects


My guess would be dirt on the rollers inside the VCR. They sesnse a jam and ejct. Try a VCR cleaner (with cleaning fluid) and see if that helps.

Record from VHS to DVD


i should imagine so if they are not copy protected films i.e shop ones .if they are tv films on tapes etc then it would be possible to do so.
via insert the vhs tape and insert the blank dvd in to its tray
play the vhs tape and press rec to record on to dvd .
although the manual might give a better guide to doing this .
