Just  unplug for a few minutes and that seemed to reset the unit.else i suggest u can  put a small dc voltage to the motor, lik 5 to 7 volts. the motor should turn one way or the other. but this would not indicate if the motor control ic's in the unit are working.

    if not try press and hold the power button on the unit for more than 10 seconds. This is a softer and safer reset for the unit. or  pull the plug to reset the unit but I believe that was what cause the  settings (including parental control level) to screw up. it ll never get screw-up on the settings once u used the power button instead of pulling the plug.

Put it upside down, try to use any tool to eject it. Put some lubricants and try to eject it by mere shaking.

    Step1Make sure your recorder has available power. Open the lid by pressing eject or the appropriate button or lever, and remove the cassette.

    Step2 Look for a lever designed to be depressed when a tape to be recorded is inserted. You will want to clean both the recording and playback heads if the device is so equipped, so with the lid open look for a lever that is designed to be depressed when a tape to be recorded is inserted. On certain small recorders like a General Electric hand-held recorder this step will not be unnecessary.

    Step3If there is lever to detect a tape that can be recorded, gently push the lever in and hold it for step 4.

    Step4Hold lever while pressing play and record. Making sure your hands and fingers will be away from all moving parts, gently depress record and play until both heads (if the device is so equipped) are visible, locked into position and the motor is running so the rubber drive wheel is turning.

    Step5The recorder should now be running, and you should be able to carefully remove your finger off of the lever that detects a tape can be recorded. Take a cotton swab an dip it into some rubbing alcohol so that it is mostly wet. You do not want the swab too wet.

    Step6With gentle pressure, wipe the heads with the swab. Check the swab, and if it is too dirty or frayed, anoint another swab and continue. Keep checking the swabs you use, and do the heads first before you get to the rubber drive wheel.

    Step7 Cleaning the drive wheel. Observe the rubber drive wheel as to whether it is rotating clockwise or counterclockwise. Place a freshly anointed swab either at the 10 o'clock position on the wheel if it is rotating counterclockwise, or the 2 o'clock position if it is rotating clockwise. The proper position will prevent the fibers of the swab from being caught between the rubber wheel and the rotating shaft of the motor. Apply gentle pressure upon the wheel moving the swab up and down the circumference of the wheel as it makes a number of rotations. Check the swab to see if you have to use a fresh one.

    Step8While the recorder is still running, take a new swab but do not dip it into the rubbing alcohol. Instead, dry the heads and drive wheel with it. Inspect the heads and drive wheel for any stray fibers, and remove the fibers with a tweezer. When the heads and wheel are dry, stop the recorder, and reinsert the cassette if so desired.

    If this is not successful, you will need to open up the VCR (unplug it first!) and attempt to cycle the mechanisms by hand. Probably, both the top and bottom covers will need to be removed. This will require a medium size philips screwdriver. There are usually 2 to 4 screws on top and 2 to 10 screws on the bottom. Don't be tempted to turn anything you see in there just yet!

    CAUTION: Do not plug the VCR into the AC outlet while in the middle of this treament as there is no telling what it will do. The end result might be more of a mess than what you had originally! The VCR might in its infinite wisdom decide to complete the eject cycle but catch the tape on some guidepost or crinkle it in some other creative manner.

    The following procedures assume that there are no broken parts, foreign objects, or other damage which might prevent manual cycling of the tape loading and cassette loading mechanism. (Inspect for toys and rocks.) Also note that some VCR designs use solenoids to engage various operations. This will complicate your task (to put it mildly) as locating and activating the proper ones at the appropriate time is, well, a treat.

I have a VCR Panasonic NV - FJ623 and when I insert a video cassette into it for playback or recording purposes,it always ejects the video cassette.Can you help, please?


I'ts likely that the record sensor that pushes on the tab on the tape is bent or broken. Making the VCR think you are trying to record on to a protected tape.

I have a NV-DX110B about 11 years old. I'm getting


Your camera appears slightly older than mine so I will do my best for you. Have you tried ejecting the tape with the power off? If I have problems I slide the eject button when the camera is off but plugged in and the tape can be ejected. I suspect the tape mechanism is in trouble. When a tape stuck in mine I had to literally force the cover open. But this is a last resort.

Give my suggestion a try and apologies if you have already tried that...

MY PANASONIC CAM RECORDER STOPPED WORKING BECAUSE


The tape will be badly damaged if trapped in camera, this always happens when the camera has got dirty heads and capstan rollers, some times the door wont open if this happens, but if it does open your local camera shop may get the film out.

Panasonic NV-DS65 won't eject a tape


It sounds that what's happened is your idler wheel is slipping or even your main drive belt.
When you loaded the tape it was taken by tape guides around the video drum. When you pressed eject the tape guides returned to their proper places but the tape stayedin a loop around the mechanism because the take up spool had no drive to pull the tape back into the cassette. When you've tried to pull the cassette out of the camera that loop of tape has snagged on part of the mechanism and that's what is stopping the cassette from being removed. I'm afraid the tape would be damaged at that spot so you may as well simply snip it with a pair of long bladed scissors and the cassette will pull straight out.
What is then required is either the drive belt changed or the idler wheel assembly changed. Either way a service center will be required unless yourself or a friend is able to buy the parts (not expensive) and do the work required.

Good luck

My ZR30mc video recorder will not eject cassette


Take the side panel off to see whether the tape is damaged and will not retreat into the cassette ( this will prevent ejection ). Remove old damaged cassette and insert new one. If the unit chews the new cassette camera should go in for VTR service.
