SOURCE: VCR Tape will not play, it keeps ejecting

I have had this problem for so long. I just pressed the manual (rather than the remote) DVD/VCR button on the VCR to make sure it was on VCR and it recorded straight away so will do this in the future. Hope it helps others too.

SOURCE: VCR Tape will not play, it keeps ejecting

I have a similar problem. It takes 3 or 4 times to get my Sony VCR to accept a tape. Once it does, everything is fine, until I turn it off. Next day, same trouble. I tried several tapes and brand new tapes. No difference. I have opened the cabinet and used alcohol to clean various stuff, no change.

I start to play a VCR tape and it just stops playing and the machine turns off. This doesn't happen with a DVD, however.


The VCR tape will turn off when spools are Jammed to prevent breakage of the tape. Take out the VCR cassette and put a thick pencil in the each sprocket hole and try winding in the right direction (which means when you manually wind the tape the other spool should unwind without resistance). If you feel resistance the sprockets are jamming. Knock the cassette on a hard surface without breaking it and usually it will free the jam. If does not help then carefully open the the cassette screw and re-position the sprockets.

When i put in a tape, i get a squeeling sound, and the tape won't play.


The only way is to take the top off and watch what the tape is doing! You might even see some object inside which should not be there!

My VCR/DVD combo wont play a VHS tape when inserted. Each time I insert a VHS tape, it shoots it right back out and sometimes unravels the tape around the apparatuses inside the VCR. It won't reco


the tape coming back out and unravels the tape means the loading mechanism is the problem----when a tape goes in it loads the tape down, then it pulls the tape out of the cassette and puts it up against the drum with the video heads-----many of these are belt driven and a bad belt or belts will cause this----it is called the loading and or transport mechanism.......when it fails the arms come back but the tape does not get rewound back into the cassette so it mangles it when the cassette door on the tape closes----most likely a belt or the drive idler which also rewinds and fast forwards the tape.

Power goes off when a cassette is inserted. Tried cleaning heads but it won't even run that. When power is turned back on the cassette is immediately ejected.


Good day!!!

Most common problems
  • VCR refuses to FF or REW and shuts off.
  • VCR shuts off entering PLAY or REC or at random during PLAY or REC.
  • VCR eats tapes.
  • VCR doesn't accept tapes or ejects them without cause.
  • Sound is wavery, fluctuating, or muddy.
The cause for all of these is very often a bad idler tire or other dirty, worn, or tired rubber parts

TAPE LOADS AT AN AGLE AND THEM IMMEDIATELY EJECTS


Look inside the flap. is the bar at an angle? If it is, try using a vhs-c adapter with no tape. take the vcr cover off. put the tape in and when it is at an angle, push down on the cassette. if that does not work, when putting the adapter in, right when its at an angle manually turn the gear or pull the lever on the side that is up. hope this helps!

VCR ejecting my cassettes


Try removing the top cover & have a look to see what happens when you put the tape in & press play/rewind etc. Is the take up spool (right hand spool) turning properly or is there slack tape not being taken into the cassette? Are the heads spinning ? I think your problem is more likely to do with the tape not travelling smoothly around the tape path. Possibly the clutch gears need cleaned or the soft brakes may not be dis-engaging properly.

VCR acting strange with audio and playing


It sounds like the audio control head is at fault.
If all prerecorded tapes (movies) play with audio level jumping up and down, is is likely that the audio head is dirty. The audio head in the VCR looks very similar to a head of an old audio cassette player.
First, try to clean the audio head by running a VHS head cleanning tape. The cleanning tape will usually clean the path of all tape mechanisms..

Good Luck

Tape stuck


Your takeup spool isn't moving.  Before tearing into it further try putting the cover back on the deck and power cycling it.  Hit REW and then try ejecting the tape.  If this works, you'll get the tape back but it's likely the deck is dying.

 

If not, you need to be very careful to get the tape out:  You may be able to turn the wheel that moves the tape basket to gently ease it out;  otherwise, there are screws on the top of the tape basket.  Remove them and gently lift the tape out while carefully unthreading the tape from the tape guides around the head.  There'll be two feet of exposed tape--pretend it's glass, it's delicate!

 

Now the tape is out and you need to thread it back in the cassette.  This needs patience, but here goes:

 

On the front of the cassette, there's a door to protect the tape.  Feel the right hand side of the cassette for a small button;  hold it down to open the door and keep it open

 

With the other hand (or with three hands! :) ) put your hand under the right-hand tape reel under the cassette.  Carefully turn it clockwise.  It will make clicking noises, but it should ease the tape back into the shell.

 

Beyond that, the cause of the original malfunction will be a bad reel motor, which is probably not fixable, or a bad belt, which you may be able to locate through mcminone.com.  You'll have to unscrew the bottom cover to investigate further.
