    Hi and welcome to FixYa,

    Almost always, problems of this nature would indicate either a slipping or cut belt. Try unplugging the VCR fro about 10 minutes, press the eject button while plugging it back in. Should this not be corrective, the top cover would have to be removed to manually turn the gears/mechanism to extract the tape. This method however would allow a portion of the tape to slack and therefore possible have creases thereafter.

    Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

You might have to unplug the player for about 1 to 2 minutes then the tape should automatically eject once you plug back into the oulet.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, the top cover must be removed. Theis would allow you to:

  • manually eject the tape by turning the worn gear/mechanism. The only problem would be slack on the tape causing creases;
  • check/replace belt(s).
Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

When inserting vhs tape, the player pulls the tape from inserted vhs


That is exactly what a typical M-Load mechanism is supposed to do. Once the VHS tape cassette is inserted, cassette housing cover will be flipped up and two arms will pull tape out of cassette housing to wrap tape around cylindrical spinning head housing that contains video heads and, if VHS HI-FI, audio heads as well. When stop or eject button is pressed, arms will retract and tape will wind back into cassette housing. What type of problem are you experiencing with unit? It may have nothing to do with M-load engaging tape around head cylinder.

Power off when inserting vhs tape


I had this problem when copying an old family vhs tape. I had to unscrew the top of the magnavox to access the vhs tape. Then, I gently removed the tape and replaced the cover. After winding the tape back, I put it in the player and immediately pushed fast forward for about 3 seconds before hitting play followed by d.dubbing. I was able to make a copy of the tape and did not damage my original.

I can only speak to getting the tape out. If all else fails, you can take the player to your local best buy and have them remove the tape for a minimal fee of no more than 30$.

VHS tape plays for a few seconds and automatically ejects


My guess would be dirt on the rollers inside the VCR. They sesnse a jam and ejct. Try a VCR cleaner (with cleaning fluid) and see if that helps.

Vhs eject will not release tape.


I had a suggestion that did work. Reach into the VHS compartment with left hand and press down toward the back of the tape. With the right hand press the eject button a few times and the tape did come out. I would not buy a Samsung product again. No help from their 800 tech support. No more playing the VHS side of the player. Lynn
