There should be a DVD/VCR button on the remote control which will toggle the machine from one playback source to another. If she has pressed the VCR button then the machine will only playback tapes & not show DVD's. Press this button & the DVD's should play. If you look closely at the front window of the machine it will show what mode it is in ie VCR or DVD, set this for the DVD to get it to play.

SOURCE: cannot remove vcr tape from my 13 tv/vcr combo


there is every possibility that the tape has coiled inside the player and that's why it cannot remove.

You need to open up the player so that you can gain access to the tape and remove the tape from whatever might have hooked it.

This should work a great deal because I have done this couple of times.

I wish you good luck.

SOURCE: Can the sansui vcr/dvd combo record vcr tapes to a

No, the DVD section only plays DVDs, to record VCR tapes to DVD you need a ripping device that digitalize audio and video (convert step) and then transfer to DVD specifications this data to disk (record step). The easiest way to do this is using a USB video capture adapter connected to your PC with a DVD recorder drive installed, the software to do this commonly comes as a bonus in the setup disk of the adapter.

VCR is eating tapes

There are different reasons that a VCR could start eating tapes. It could that it just needs a good cleaning or it could have a mechanical problem you will really need to have it checked out by a service center to determine why. If you have small children I would check it for signs of “peanut butter sandwiches. J

VCR Eats the tapes

Often the "Pinch Roller" type Tape Drive can "Dry Out" and it slips. this causes the tape to get all screwed up.. It could also be a belt that turns the capstan.. Or even a thing called the "Mode Switch" In any event Ya probably be best to take it in for repair as it's not really a "Homer" I suggest ya get a quote and an explanation, and see if it is economically worthwhile?

VCR eating tapes when attempting to rewind

VCRs are so cheaply priced these days that it's not worth the time and trouble to fix them or have them repaired. If you fix one worn or slipping belt, another problem isn't far behind.
