Hello alhertel,

The old idler wheel has been replaced with gears (cheaper and last longer then the old rubber wheel). What you need to do is to gain access to the loader motor and turn it until the carriage begins to move, once the carriage gets to the top and moves outward you should be able to eject the tape with no problem.

Believe it or not VCRs are throw away technology, since it costs as much to repair one as it does to buy a new one. However, there are a lot of people who still hold on to their VCRs.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

    Hello alhertel,

    Try this take the cover off and look at the position of the gears, look for proper alignment, because what has happened is what is called gear slip. One of the gears are engaged incorrectly, making the system believe that the carriage is in the correct position when it is not. Also check your tape sensors. These two issues can cause this problem to occur.

    I hope this helps,

    Thank you,

Power goes off when a cassette is inserted. Tried cleaning heads but it won't even run that. When power is turned back on the cassette is immediately ejected.


Good day!!!

Most common problems
  • VCR refuses to FF or REW and shuts off.
  • VCR shuts off entering PLAY or REC or at random during PLAY or REC.
  • VCR eats tapes.
  • VCR doesn't accept tapes or ejects them without cause.
  • Sound is wavery, fluctuating, or muddy.
The cause for all of these is very often a bad idler tire or other dirty, worn, or tired rubber parts

VCR does not play.. It keeps ejecting the tape


Does it eject right when you put a tape in? Or when you press play? Does it fast forward or rewind? if not a belt may need to be replaced or an idler tire is worn.

Go-Video VCR Problem with accepting/ejecting tapes


As with any VCR, there are rubber parts inside that have become slick. This is a simple repair for any shop. The mechanisms are Samsung ones if I remember correctly. Expect a parts cost between $20-$40. Add in the local labor rate for the total cost. This is worth the repair cost as any replacement would not last anywhere near as long. This is also a normal occurrance as rubber parts harden with age. I have repaired many of these over the years.

What do I do when my Emerson TV keeps turning off by itself?


I had the same problem with mine turning off after 3-5 seconds. After much research I found a suggestion that on some combo units the vcr part could have a power supply cutout if it is not working correctly. I tried to insert a tape and found that the tape mechanism would not accept a tape. I used a little bit of force and managed to insert a tape. I then played the tape forwards and backwards and the power stayed on! I ejected the tape and found the TV then worked just fine. The power has now been on for over one hour. I hope this give you another avenue to try and fix your problem.

Take the top cover off, and see if there is an obvious reason for the no-eject, as in tape spooled out and wrapped around something. Next, is the tape drawn back into the tape housing? Under normal operation this is done before eject. A defect in the tape itself, or in the VCR mechanicals can cause a no "pull in" condition. Otherwise, you could carefully try to assist an eject- push eject, lift lightly on the tape. Sometimes the entire carriage mechanism can be removed with tape in place, but often, screws holding this in place are obscured by the tape, and, if carriage is gear driven, proper gear alignment must be reestablished. This can be a tricky problem, getting tape out without damaging anything, especially since late VCRs are made rather fragile to start with.

if all you want to do is disable the vcr portion turn the set on , install a blank vhs tape it has to be blank or the vcr will try to read it .and the tv and dvd should work fine. this is a timing problem in the vcr deck its not hard to fix but it is a pain.
