What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill

SOURCE: VCR tape won't eject

The flap on the door stays open until the tape is ejected. There are two possible ways to remove the tape. First, with the power off, try to locate the drive pulley or gear on the side of the tape housing. It may be possible to turn it with your finger and cause the tape to eject. The eject mechanism will move VERY slowly when you use this technique.

The second way to do it should normally be done by an experienced technician, because it involves taking it even farther apart...and it may be difficult to reassemble. There are typically four screws that hold the tape mechanism in place...two near the top front and two near the back. It should be possible to remove those screws and pull the entire mechanism out of the VCR. Then you can more easily rotate the eject pulley (or gear) and remove the tape. If this sounds a little scary, I would definitely recommend placing the top back on and acting like nothing happened!

Does the record button on the VCR work? If yes, then the problem is most likely related to your remote controller. Do you still have the manual? In the back of the manuals they usually provide programming codes for the remote - you could try reprogramming it or using a different code.
If on the other hand the record button on the vcr doesn't work either and also causes the tape to eject then you know the problem is on the vcr side. Is the tape write-protected, assuming it's a VHS system is the write protect tab on the tape removed?

The mechanism on VCR are complicated. You can open it (make sure its not plugged in). Try to rotate the motor manually that is responsible for the loading mechanism. So that you can eject the tape. Or if you want you can just take out the whole VCR mechanism so that your TV will not shut off. if you are succesfull in ejecting the tape manually and also pay close attention to the mechanism. Do not put another tape in there unles you find out what is causing the mechanical prblem.

Tape is stuck in the vcr and when you turn on the power it turns the tape about 10 seconds and then shuts off the power.


if the tape has snagged inside, the only way to get it out is to take the top of the vcr off and manually remove it. very simple procedure. only use your fingers and not anything sharp. have you tried rewinding the tape (from STOP mode) sometimes tapes can end up being wound very tight which would have the same effect. if you can rewind do so, then fast forward until tape stops, repeat this a few times this should loosen the tape.

Magnavox TV: Somehow the record button on the remote will not record VCR. It ejects the tape and does not record. Please help. Thank you.


Try Using a new VHS tape. If the new tape ejects when press recording, the recording switch inside your VCR could be defective.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

I push the tape into the Vcr it tries to play it then it simply ejects it after about 5 seconds.


This is a safety feature of the machine. If it does not detect tape movement, the unit will shutdown and eject the tape.
