If it's that new call the place that it was purchased and see about manufacturer warranty... It should have a one-year parts and even that will help...
The problem you're describing is likely the center led or prisim. The unit thinks there is a tape in the tape path and attempting to load it. Not an expensive repair but highly complicated for the average person...
It's possible from what you described that your center LED or prisim was broken when the tape was extracted. Like many others these units depend on a series of startup checks and one being the tape path.
On the play table of the VCR is a center prisim/LED and two light sensitive diodes on either side of the tape loading assembly. If these diodes do not detect the infared beam the unit will go into shutdown.
I'd check there and let me know.
I have a similar problem. It takes 3 or 4 times to get my Sony VCR to accept a tape. Once it does, everything is fine, until I turn it off. Next day, same trouble. I tried several tapes and brand new tapes. No difference. I have opened the cabinet and used alcohol to clean various stuff, no change.
It sounds to me like you have a problem with the reel sensors not detecting movement of the tape through the VCR. This could also be caused by a defective voltage regulator(s) that powers the sensors. This model was made by symphonic/funai (1-800-242-7158), and it is not likely worth repairing.
