Hello Ro Power,
This might be due to the tape sensor malfunctioning. You will need a schematic, and multimeter, and a LED power meter to work on this problem. When the tape loads it causes an LED sensor to become blocked and then the sensor tells the control chip that a tape is present and the the controll chip allows the tape to continue playing, if the sensor does not work the signal never gets to the control chips and since other events happend and triggered the control chip the control chip looks at this as an error and the stops the tape , some units even eject the tape.
If you do not have a background in electronics, I would suggest that you take the VCR to a qualified shop and have them repair it.
I hope this helps,
