Err on display when insert tape, no functions work.

Two things. First there is some damage to the tape transport mechanism. Only a good look around will confirm this. Secondly a faulty mode switch.

Error Message on display

The alarm message usually means that the tape didn't load properly.  Instead of trying to play the tape and destroy it, the unit will just stop.  A common problem is that the tape heads don't spin.  Without a cushion of air between the heads and the tape, the tape will get ruined.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this is a repair that needs to be done by a tech.  The positions of the tape and heads are very touchy and have to be perfect.  I would try to find a repair center that can give you a good estimate and then determine for yourself if repairing the unit is cost effective.

Hope this helps :)

Error F04

You have a K Mech model. F04 is the code for "Mech locks during unloading". The cause of this is the Load Motor Timing.
You can get service information for the K-Mech from service manual site ESI. It was free when I download it last. Also it gives instructions on how to get trapped tapes out!
Any problems getting hold of it let me know.

Panasonic VCR NV-HD642 - F04 Error

You sound like you have a K Deck Model. If this is the case F04 means that the mechanism locks during unloading.
The apparent cause of this is the Load Motor timing.

Fault F04

F04 is "loading lock". most likely problem is that the timing of the gears in the tape loading mechanism is mis-timed.

Can't eject tape from deck

On Sony DSR-80P error 02-221 and 02-291 is a problem with the tape pull-in or eject. Mostly the tape stickers are bad situated over the stripe-cover at the top, which should be moving freely!
Remove the stickers from the tape or put them lower on the case. If the tape is already inside the machine is unable to reject the tape - disconnect the machine from electricity to open it or call service...

greetings from berlin, matt.

When tape is inserted the unit starts beeping and I have to eject tape. Tapes will not play, rewind, fast forward or record? How can I fix this?

The beeping indicates that an error has occurred and that the unit has been disabled because operation could damage the unit further. To determine what the problem is- Turn unit off. While holding the STOP button, turn back on and continue to hold the button for 8 sec, then let go. Press display and you will get an error code on the monitor, for instance, C:21:00 error code (the most common code I get) indicates a condensation problem. If this is the code you get then leave the unit open in a dry place for 24 hours or so, and it should dry out the dew sensor and clear the code. The unit will hold up to 6 error codes in the order that they occur, rotate the wheel to cycle through the codes. Codes are displayed as - C:XX:XX. If you get a code other than C:21:00, then google the code,(Sony C:XX:XX) and the description will probably come up. Good luck.

Tape stuck in VCR, won't eject.

you posted 2 different problems here...
to answer this one ". The tape is stuck, won't eject and I'd like to get it out without damaging the VCR unit." unit, find motor that moves tape ejector and spin that motor by hand (power off)

the other problem, "the VCR will not insert a tape. It keeps rejecting it." unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.

Error "04" on display & tape won't eject

you have bad capacitors in your power supply. i would suggest you take your unit to a good shop in your area and request a power supply re-build and mode switch cleaning.
