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.

Videotape dubbing deck dead


Hi,

1. Check to see if a tape is jammed inside (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape).
2. Try changing the video input and/or output source. Many VCRs have two ways to receive and send a video signal (coaxial and video direct). If that works, try changing the cable for the other method to see whether you need a new cable.
3. Clean tape heads (see How to Clean VCR Heads).
4. Open VCR and inspect any belts that are accessible (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape). A drive belt may be broken or loose.


If tapes are getting stuck / enmeshed inside the machine, itis 90% probability) a mechanical problem. Change the Belts, clean all rollers, idlers, and braking pads.
I would suggest that you also replace the Capstan Pinch Roller.

Goodluck..

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.

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.

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"

Well ont eject all the way out


There is a problem with the loading basket, or the VHS tape is stuck inside and the eject mechanism can not cycle the tape out. To check this, open the lid so you can see the tape, if it is wrapped around the head and roller, hit the eject button to see if the tape is being pulled or jammed, cut the tape with scissors to free it up to see if it will pop out. If the tape is okay, it means you have a faulty loading basket.

Tape stuck in curtis DRC8335. Can I get that out on my own?


Take the vcr cover off. Find the loading motor. Try turning the attached gear. this should make it eject the tape. I had to do this on my Sony, but the gear was jammed. I had to take out the basket and then get the tape out.

I took the cover off and noticed the tape was wrapped all around some wheels and unwrapped the tape from the wheels and got it out. Ate the tape up BUt at least its out. However, I tried a new tape and can now see what the problem may be. It keeps on eating the tapes, they get all scrunched up inside around various wheels and while I can get it out, each tape is mangled and beyond use. So something is causing the VCR to incorrectly wrap the tape around each aligned whlle. Dont know how to fix this , BUT since I wont be able to get parts or help on here to do it by myself, Can you be kind enough to find me a repair service outlet in Ottawa, Ontario, canada.

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

Hold down the power button (or the vcr button if on a combination remote) for six seconds. This will unlock the child lock feature of the vcr.
