There is an acrylic post inside that directs a light beam to several different places so when the light beam is broken then it tells other parts that the tape is loaded this could be broken off or if the tape broke off inside a piece could be wrapped around a capstan or drive post causing the machine to think it is at the end of the tape and to turn itself off.

I have Emerson TV/ VCR / Dvd. The tape rewinds,but just before time to stop/eject, the power turns off. Is it safe for me to squirt WD40 into the slot when there's no tape inside? Or should I just buy a...


Do not put wd40 into the unit as it could attack plastic parts making it worse. You can squirt Servisol Video 40 without harm to the device. However i would have a look inside by taking the top cover off and see if you can see any damage or objects stuck etc. If you can find the VCR's mode switch that might need a clean with Servisol.

It sounds like the tape is jammed in the vcr, remove the top cover of the machine this will expose the tape. If the tape is spewed in the mechanical section and around the video head, get a pair of scissors and start cutting the tape and carefully remove all tape particles, when all tape debris has been removed, plug in vcr turn on and eject. If the tape looks good, you may have a loading basket problem, bad idler ***. or broken drive belt. "Lets hope for the best"
