Best thing to do here is open unit and have a look--likely the tape is bound up on a post or something--usual cause is the mechanism that rewinds/plays the tape is not working right----when eject is hit it rewinds and puts the tape back into the cassette.
This unit is old enough to have about 5 belts and a rubber drive wheel any of which if broken or bad will do this.
They used to sell a belt pack by model number with the drive idler--pretty easy to replace IF you can find the parts.
Way to go. Usually if you use anisotropic Alcohol with a few Q-tips works well I've found. Try cleaning the other tap path items like the capstan that the pinch roller get's pushed up to also with this Alcohol. The cleaner the better the tape goes through. Much better picture.

sorry to say that none.no trip button for that.i assumed that the magnetic strip of the tape is already wind up inside.you'll need to open the unit up and gently rotate the flywheel of the tape player until you can open the door of the tape compartment.no need to force or it will just break.
This unit requires the rubber parts to be replaced. The loading sequence is not completing properly. The VCR will eject the tape when the sequence fails as a safety measure to prevent damage to either the VCR or the tape.
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."...open 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."...open unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.
there is screws on the unit when the unit goes into rewind mode disconnect from mains and unscrew unit first check to see if the screws are scurity type haveng a hex or star shape on them if either then take to video and tv repair shop and explain that you need to remove a tape from unit you may have to pay for a small fee for it to be removed this part is all i can give but if you can remove screws yourself then locate the motor for tape ejet and load and manualy wind till tape is removed good luck
