Start off with using a vcr tape cleaner make sure you read instructions some are just a brush while some others cleaners have a small liquid cleaner to add to it after using cleaner do not worry about rewinding it until another day you may need it.you can also try switching the progressive scan off if being used.If its eating tapes the tensioner could be loose or wore out or the locking mechanism is not working properly when tape is inserted.If you are not experienced in this field I recommend letting a shop look at it if so cleaning it is about the only thing you do also try opening the vcr tape bay door taking a deep breath and blow inside it without a tape in it do this several times it may just be dust and you can try unplugging it for 10 minutes to reset the device to see if its a stuck communication glitch in the board for the head motors.I hope one of these three basic tricks helps you.
when you hit the eject button try tapping the top above the disk drive. it may be somewhat stuck. if that doesnt fix it you might have a broken belt or a belt may have come off in it. the belt controls the movement of the drive in and out
Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the eject mechanism and the drive motor connected with the tape mechanism. Try and align the drive motor. Also check the push-pull arm of the tape mechanism and make sure that the springs connected with the mechanism are fine.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
