    I took the vhs tape apart to untangle the tape. The pieces inside fell out and I don't know how to put it back together. I think I could if I had a diagram.

How can I recase a VHS tape?

There are screws in those five holes that have to be removed. You may find after opening the cassette that the tape doesn't play because it is broken or damaged.

How to remove a cassette stocked in a vhs machine?

If the VHS tape is stuck inside, and when you push the eject button, it wont come out. Then you need to unplug the VHS player, take it apart so that you can access the inside. See how the tape is stuck inside and start to take it out the best you can. Once you get it out you may have to throw away the tape if it is messed up badly, if not wind it back up. Put the VHS player back together once you get the tape out. Then try to play another VHS tape and see if it works again. If not, it may be a bad VHS player or it may be the tapes. Hope this helps. I have had to take mine apart to take a tape out, so that's how I know

I have an old RCA VCR,model VR622HF, when I attempt to record PRO-TEC PLUS, it asked for a code ? I don't have the book

The best way I know of is to carefully (after unplugging of course) locat th screws (hint - sometimes they love to hide them under stickers/rubber "feet" etc. - run your finger over the stickers while pressing hard, and you will be able to find a "circular indent where a screw hole is hiding) that allows the main shell/case case to be taken off. Generally this will allow you access to the area where the tape is mounted/tangled. From there, just carefully untangle.

Before re-assembling the VHS machine, take a q-tip with some alcohol or ethanol (non-scented nail polish remover), and lightly rub the mirror-like-surface cylinder (the playing head) inside the machine - all the way around. Dirt can accumulate on this head and will catch the tape to tangle it. This is likely why it got caught in the first place. Continue cleaning the head until the Q-tip shows no more dirt. I also used to clean any place the tape touched in sie the machine in this way (spools, etc, it want around that were obviously metal).

To wind the tape back up onto the cassette, locate the "button" on the side that allows you to flip open the front of the cassette (the hinged part that protects the tape but flips up when inside the machine), flip the front up and keep it lifted (temporary piece of tape, or rubber band arnound the entire cassette - whatever).

Look at the bottom of the tape and you will see a hole centered, and towards the top of the back side. you need to insert something into this hole and apply pressure. While keeping the pressure there, you can manually turn the cassette wheels to wind the tape back on.

Our Toshiba VCR won't play tape. It ejects tape after a few seconds.

If you are trying to play older VHS tapes, you may have to run them through some fast forward-rewind cycles to condition them and relieve stress

I have 1 VHS tape that will not stay in machine. As soon as I push the tape in it pops right out.

I assume all the other VHS tapes work fine, there must be some sort of glitch in the case. I suggest taking the VHS case apart and leave the tapes in the spools, now very carefully transport the spools and tape to new VHS casing and see if that will solve your problem, and remember to make sure that all the parts are present and in the right location, that should get you up and running unless the tape has excessive ware.

I inserted a vhs-c tape in to my cassette adaptor and the motor started running but it won't stop. I tried to remove the vhs-c tape but the switch does not respond. I can put the cassette adaptor in the...

That may be what you will have to do, in this case, unless you can somehow get that switch to work. I don't understand why the motor continues to run, but it's probably a broken plastic piece or other gear part that's not functioning. When you take the cassette apart, try to look for any broken parts, or loose components that you can reseat. You may have to end up buying another adapter. Wish I knew more to tell you, but that's all I can think of.

Reassembling a vhs tape---lots of little internal parts and springs. where do they all go? Is there an exploded diagram for the reassembly?

You do mean a TAPE?
If so I suggest you take apart an old tape that's no good or a cheap new one, that will show you better than a diagram.

VHS Tape Problem

Yes! The cheapest way to fix it is to buy a new blank tape and take it apart transplant the old tape & reels to the new case of the new tape. Be sure to keep your fingers off the surface of the tape.

Good luck,

Got pets or young ones? This problem just smacks of having something lodged inside. Could also have come from a label coming off inside, too...accordianman
