Question about RCA VR639HF VHS VCR

1 Answer

Tape keeps getting ejected

We have an RCA VR639HF and are having problems with the machine ejecting the tape as soon as you put it in. Sometimes it would work fine for a while, then when you go to play or rewind it ejects the tape. On occasion, it would work after pushing the tape in at least a half dozen times. Now it seems to eject the tape as soon as you put it in.

    Thank you for your suggesting regarding replacing the rubber parts. We opened up the VCR and found that a spring had broken. Since the unit is 10 years old, we feel it is not worth spending the money on. Again, thanks for your help.

This unit requires the rubber parts to be replaced. The loading sequence is not completing properly. The VCR will eject the tape when the sequence fails as a safety measure to prevent damage to either the VCR or the tape.

Parts cost for this should not be more than $10.

I have a brand new tape adapter (for my iPod) that was working for weeks, but after I ejected it, it just keeps ejecting itself right when I try to put it back in. It will play just a tiny bit of the...


You might try flipping the adapter over the other way. If that doesn't work, you might want to try putting a cleaning tape in and clean the cassette heads. The tape player will sometimes eject a tape if it cannot read it very well. It assumes that the tape is damaged. Dirt on your heads can cause it to eject your adapter because it is having trouble reading the signal from the adapter.

TAPE WENT IN AND TROUBLE TO GET OUT, WHEN OUT, STILL ACTING LIKE IT HAS A TAPE IT IN IT IS TRYING TO EJECT. KEEPS SAYING 'STOP' 'EJECT' AND THE TV WILL NOT STAY OFF~~


If you "helped" the tape out in any way, that action most likely caused more damage. When a qualified technician sees an item before "customer induced damage" their job is easier and no "unusual" parts are broken which puts them in a good frame of mind and translates into a repair that you can be happy about.
However, if only the "eject" button was used to get the tape out, this is a fairly common symptom and worth taking to an experienced professional.

When a tape won't eject, the problem can be caused by several things. The most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the tape. This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution on the belt or have the belt replaced. Belts are inexpensive but sometimes difficult to get to. Most of the repair expense will be in the labor. Unplug the unit and take the cover off. Hopefully there will be enough clearance so you can get to the tape. Try to find the motor and belt that is responsible for operating the eject mechanism. The motor will look like a shiny cylinder, about the diameter of a quarter and will have a plastic pulley attched to the shaft. You can rotate the pulley and belt with your fingers and manually eject the tape. If the tape is around the spindles and video head, you will need to manually move the mechansim that retracts the spindles and returns the tape to the cartridge. While you may be successful in getting the tape out, you need to find out what caused the problem in the first place. Putting in another tape will most like become stuck again unless the problem is identified and resolved. Also look for a broken spring or cracked gear (missing teeth) in the eject mechanism. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance Good luck! - Jim

Vcr is ejected all the time


the reason for this could be many things. The first one that comes to mind would be a cassette loading problem,ie the cassette you insert does not load all the way for some reason like little fingers or even big fingers put something inside the tape door and when you put in a tape it dosent let the tape settle all the way so rejects it.a falloen off tape label or sticker I have found to cause this problem. If all looks good then theres a sensor or a mecanical problem that should be serviced by a quilifyed technician.
