Question about JVC HR-S7500 S-VHS VCR
The cassette stopped playing and the video machine turned itself off. When it was turned back on, the eject tape symbol flashes and the machine turned itself off again. On opening the video machine, I removed the plate and took out the cassette and reassembled the plate - and now, on turning the video machine on it acts as if a cassette is still in there and seems to be either playing for a short while and then turning itself off. It won't eject, stop or do anything...
Please help! : )
the switch is on the electronic board under the tape compartment. you have to unscrew the screws and unplug all the wires to take it out. be careful though, you have to put it back the way it was otherwise you will mess up the machanisim on that machine. good luck

Initially, I am inclined to think that nothing is wrong. It is just most likely that that particular tape was recorded in a different speed other than what your VCR is capable of playing. This is a form of compression wherein a longer recording/playing time is squeezed into the same type/kind of tape. The various settings are SP, LP, EP or even an XP. Pls click here to give you an idea of the recording time/speed at different settings.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

there is a spring attached to the tape release gear that will eventuall wear out through time, also, sometimes the rubber belts wear out and throws the timing off.
That would be the first two things to check. Make sure spring is not stretched. Try testing with cover off and watch to see if the part holding the back of the tape releases.

The take up is not rewinding the tape all the way back into the shell. Check the idler, it's either worn or if it's plastic it is warped from the heat.

the eject button is a plastic piece that turns and pushes down on the board and is more then likely broken open the vcr take off the front face plate and check the button, it will propaply fall out. you can use super glue and glue the button back in place

First locate the load and unload motor, it is the one with the rubber drive band. release the drive band and rotate the gear to raise and pull the carriage back into position.
This should remove your cassette, and put the carriage back into position.
I hope this helps,
