Dear All, The tape suddenly jamms, the jvc hr-s9700 switches off, once I even could not eject it at all, had to open the cover and take it out.The cassette door remains open, cassette can not be inserted or played again. Happens for third time, the repair man ( in faraway different town, can't go anymore...have to repair it myself) said it is some sort of switch, which controls the tape mechanics, is the problem and needs replacement or cleaning. He did it last time, and after couple of hours play it stoped again.Managed to pull the tape out, the tape was not fully inside the cassette, door remains open. Opened the lid, can not find/do not know how the swich looks like to replace it or clean it. Also, where to get/download for free service manuals for jvc hr-s9700 ? Please, help !!! Thank you very much for your detailed answer and help !!!

Check out the drive that works the unloading and loading operation of your machine. Also check the switch that is activated by the presence of your cassette. If something is wrong with the latter, the tape will not load and unload properly. And under those circumstances your machine will not work.
Try Google search for your questions. You may get lucky and get the answers right there!

JVC HR-VP628U VCR does not load the tape into the machine. If I manually push it down it loads the tape onto the play head and plays etc. pressing Eject does not eject. replaced all belts already.


There seems to be some damage to the cassette holder. It could also be something connected to the mode switch, being faulty or in the wrong position. Pressing down on the tape would not have helped it either!

Hi, I have a JVC HR-J658 VCR that doesn't eject tapes.


You mean a tape is stuck inside? Disconnect power and open up the cover. If the tape is stuck around the posts, free it and by manually turning the loading motor you can slowly get the mechanism to eject the tape.

I have a VCR tape stuck in an old machine is there a trick to getting it out? It doesn't release it from the internal mechanisms! want the movie back!


I've had this happen to me a few times. The only way I could get the tape out was to take the VCR apart and carefully pull the tape out of the mechanism and all the tape that had pulled out of the cassette into the machine had to be carefully rewound back into the cassette. The tape itself is usually folded into many folds - so the movie needs to be copied as soon as possible onto a new cassette; as it won't play too many times with all the folds before getting stuck again into the VCR.

There is a little button near the door on the side of cassette itself that will allow you to open the door and rewind the tape easier.

Too fast playback of video cassette


Hi,

Initially, I am inclined to think that nothing is wrong. It is just most likely that that particular tape was recorded in a different speed other than what your VCR is capable of playing. This is a form of compression wherein a longer recording/playing time is squeezed into the same type/kind of tape. The various settings are SP, LP, EP or even an XP. Pls click here to give you an idea of the recording time/speed at different settings.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Tape stuck in VCR


First locate the load and unload motor, it is the one with the rubber drive band. release the drive band and rotate the gear to raise and pull the carriage back into position.
This should remove your cassette, and put the carriage back into position.

Tape is stuck in VCR- Fast rewind and forward


It may need to be cleaned. Mechanical problems are one of the big problems with VCRs they use alot of mechanical moving parts and play for so long they fail. Plastic parts dont help much either. The pinch roller takes up the slack and is usualy the part that fails first because it constantly runs along the tape and builds a coating on the rubber so it doesnt grip the tape and pull it back into the cassette. If its not pulling the tape back in then it hangs up inside and you cant get the tape out. Fastforward uses the reels to pull the tape not so much the roller. Try and stop 2 times then fast forward then eject the tape. Try and eject the tape while its fastforwarding so it doesnt do anything else. Sometimes machines will unload after its been in fastforwad a while then it will eject. You will hear a change in the sound when it unloads, you can hear the mechanical arms move the tape in and out of the cassette. Thats when you eject it. You cant really clean it till you get the tape out. YOu can clean the pinch roller with fingernail polish or paint remover. It is a wheel inside it looks like a black tire. It pinches the tape against the capstan arm this is why it developes a film or a shine on the rubber making it slip.
