Fisher brand VCR- tape will insert, but will not play. It will not eject and shuts of in a few seconds. Tape is stuck & not wrapped around anything. Help me get it out, please!?


Remove the top AFTER disconnecting the power and wind the loading motor backwards. Whilst the top is removed, check for any foreign objects which may have dropped through vent slots, or the loading door if you have children. Coins and other metal objects will cause electrical short circuits and do permanent damage if not removed.

Hi, I have a JVC HR-J658 VCR that doesn't eject tapes.


You mean a tape is stuck inside? Disconnect power and open up the cover. If the tape is stuck around the posts, free it and by manually turning the loading motor you can slowly get the mechanism to eject the tape.

Tape jammed. Eject jammed.


Sometimes the tape is stuck on the head . Open the door and try to pry off the tape from the head with a thin instrument . Power up the unit and usually it spits out the cass. This worked for me many times.

STUCK VHS TAPE


If you know how to do this open the latch on the cassette when it stops and look to see if something got spilled into or on the tape itself.

If the unit only shuts off with this tape the cassette is the issue.

If you open the door on the tape (little square button to release the door also look (happens if you use same tape a lot and fast scan with it) to see if the bottom edge of the tape has curved waves in it--should be perfectly flat with no ripples at bottom edge of the tape.

Tape stuck in vcr. when you press the eject button vcr starts to work but shtuts off the power Model number DVR-3034N. I have only taken the front and back covers off. Turned slanted roller untill the...


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"

Stuck VHS Tape/Power Issue


It sounds like the vcr is not completely loading the tape, and is overloading or getting confused. If you feel up to it, you can take the cover off the tv, find the tape loading mechanism, and 'help' the loading rollers along yourself... once the tape loads, eject it immediately, and you should be off and running again. Just be careful not to touch any electrical connections. If you're not comfortable with that, you're right, it's probably cheaper to get a newer tv - check with a local independent shop first, though, it should be a really quick fix.

DVD slot does not open. Can't insert into it.


Sounds like the dvd door is stuck. Try using a paperclip in the small hole by the dvd door to open manually. Once opened then try to use the button to close. Hope this helps.

Neither deck will open to insert tapes in my dual deck vcr


It seems they didnt refirbish it, you should return it..

If for some reason you cant return it.

The problem is your carriage unit is damaged
The carriage unit is the parts that load the tape into the vcr
If you think you are able you can open it up and look if any springs have fallen out. If not then change the unit.

If you cant fix it your self a technician can easily do it for you since it isnt that hard and somplicated to repair, you just need good retainence

Vcr jam


You really should take this unit into a repair shop with the stuck tape as to get this bugger out of the unit will require the tape loading mechanism to be disassembled. if this is not taken apart correctly, you could cause more damage to the unit. Good Luck.
