Question about Magnavox ZV450MW8 DVD Recorder VCR
As soon as you put the tape in the vcr ( wich you have to force in ) pops back out in seconds what can be the problem ?
The loading mechanism has to seat the cassette in the play position. In this case the mechanism is unable to do this. If you cannot get any cassette to load, the vcr may be shot. It probably could be repaired but you would have to consider cost

You have a transport problem, the mechanism the plays, FF or rewinds is not working.
Someone is going to have to open and look at the unit---as simple as a belt off or broken to the idler (rubber or geared) that doe the actual work, finding a shop that will work on a VCR unit is getting hard as most of the current techs have never seen this type of unit.
What I used to do when I opened one was have a old cassette with the tape removed! but the reels inside of it still there--tape off both sides of the cassette where it opens so the sensors on either side do not try to stop the unit from allowing this.
This way with the unit open and the dummy cassette in you can see thru its top to see if the reels are moving or not and not have the tape get in the way.
