We have a Sylvania TV/VCR combo with a tape inside that won't eject. The result is that the TV shuts off after a couple of seconds. The model number is SSC192


Hello
The belts in the VCR mechanism should be replaced. They are loose and elongatee. Due to this, proper loading of casette won't take place. If so, the video casette will not load properly, willl stop at its middle, will cause a short for the secondary supply; and finally will shut down the TV, and that is happens now with your device now. The inserted casette wont come out. You ahve to open the system, and take the casette out manually by turning the mechanism. If you have enough knoledge you can do it by yoursef. If not get it repaired by any experienced service technician. Never switch ON and OFF this set at this condition. It will make mor faults to get in with power supply system. OK.

Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Bmw casette


Hello.

You need to take out the cassette deck from the car. open the cassette deck by removing the various screws, once open, there is a small plastic gear which you need to wind manually which will slowly release the cassette.

Stuck CD cassette


Dear needhelp5246,
What you need is a screw driver not a sledgehammer. Open the bottom plate of the system and eject the cd magazine manually. Hope this solve your problem.

Cassette holder does not close


Try inserting another tape first. If the trouble is still there,Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
