The tape is trapped in the mechanisms, you have to strip the VCR down to get the tape out

    there should be a release catch on the cradle that the tape slots into, you may have to use some gentle pressure to release and eject the tape

    it will be on the left or right hand side of the cassette cradle, usually near the cog mechanism

Panasonic PV-7400 VHS VCR seems to be stuck in Memory Rewind Off mode. I power on, it attempts to rewind (though there is no tape in there now) for about 20 seconds, then powers off. I've pulled


Most of these problems are caused by a faulty mode switch. If the mode switch has gone off of it's true position, then the electronics might well think it's in rewind mode even in the off position. Sometimes it's just the switch that is faulty, but sometimes damage to the mechanism has thrown off the switch.

A cassette has jammed inside my vcr machine. It will not move forward or backward Can yoy please help


Hello,

Since the tape won't come out then it means you will have to manually remove the stuck tape. This involves you disassembling the unit in order to help/assist the player get the stuck tape out.

Turn of the unit and remove from the wall, get a Philip screw driver, use it to remove all the screws from the unit and take it apart.

Open the cover and you will see the stuck tape and what's hooking or preventing it from coming out/ejecting.

Now plug the unit, and turn it on. Press the eject button, as the tape tries to come out, support it with your hand so that it can come out.

Or if it happen that the cassette tape has coiled inside the unit, carefully free the coiled tape and the press the eject button.

Lastly, the moment you disassemble the player, you would see what's preventing it from coming out, then you can free whatsoever that is making it stuck press the eject button and the tape should come out.

Make sure the unit is turned off each time you want to remove what's making the cassette stuck.

I hope understand the above explanations.

Good luck.

The vhs cassettes keep being ejected when put in the vhs player


Well the vcr might be broken for the part that allows the tape to sit in there or something is stuck inside of the vcr so it will need to be fixed.
