Your load motor belt is worn or your load gear lubricant had hardened and needs to be cleaned and relubricated.
I had the same problem with my Emerson VCR.

Tape stuck in vcr. when you press the eject button vcr starts to work but shtuts off the power Model number DVR-3034N. I have only taken the front and back covers off. Turned slanted roller untill the...


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"

Video tape is stuck in vcr. Is there a way for me to remove it?


G'day

When a tape gets jammed in your VCR, it generally relates to
  1. the loading mechanism has a broken part
  2. the tape itself may have a problem, or has chewed in the unit and cannot be rewound back into cassette shell.
  3. the VCr itself is unable to reel the tape back into the cassette shell
Firstly... DO NOT REMOVE THE BACK!!! In the case of 1, you will need to perhaps get a tech to look at it for you if you wish to retieve the tape, and then also have the mechanism to load fixed. First try poking your finger in the front tapeflap(you will NOT be electrocuted!!! it is perfectly safe to do this), and gently rock the tape upand down whilst attempting to eject. This can sometimes assist with getting them out. If you do, check for small child "posted" things inside the machine :) Seen alot of that over the years.

If the tape itself has a problem,it may be possible to rew/ff the tape back into the shell to allow it to eject. Try this before anything else. Worse case, off to see a tech to assist with removal.

If the VCR is unable to reel the tape, thats no ff or REW, and or no takeupof the played tape back into the shell, again, you will need a tech to first remove the jammed tape by reeling it manually back into the shell, and also repair the mechanism.

There is not much use in telling you to take the lid off... there are dangerous voltages inside and also no user serviceable parts. VCR transport are complex,and a layman would not be able to repair it nor remove the tape successfully without damage to the unit, tape of both.

Take it to an expert. Costs will vary depending on what the problem is from min charge to a tape removal/appraisel of the problem to $120-150 to replace the load mechanics. Be prepared for loss of the tape. They cannot often cannot be salvaged if it has become nangled in the unit.

Hope this advice has assisted in your quest for answers. Happy to answer any questions that you may have about this. Please dont forget to rate. Cheers

Getting E2 error flashing on vcr and can't rewind tape or anything.Don't have user manual to see what that error means.


E2 means: Loading motor locked in the unload direction. Usually(not always) happens with a going bad VCR tape on the rewind. Tape is becoming too difficult to rewind and/or VCR is getting tired. Eject tape. Discard tape as soon as practical, new tapes are cheap. To clear: Hold power on/off button for 8 seconds.

Stuck VHS Tape/Power Issue


It sounds like the vcr is not completely loading the tape, and is overloading or getting confused. If you feel up to it, you can take the cover off the tv, find the tape loading mechanism, and 'help' the loading rollers along yourself... once the tape loads, eject it immediately, and you should be off and running again. Just be careful not to touch any electrical connections. If you're not comfortable with that, you're right, it's probably cheaper to get a newer tv - check with a local independent shop first, though, it should be a really quick fix.

Error E3 on Mitsubishi HS-U795


Try this :
If your VCR malfunctions, try the following steps prior to contacting your Mitsubishi Dealer:
1 Check the Trouble Checks below to see if there is a solution to the current problem that you are
experiencing.
2 If the problem is not addressed on the Trouble Checks, the safety circuits in the VCR may be in
operation, thus please try the following: (the clock setting and the timer recording will be deleted.)
1 If possible, press EJECT on the front panel and remove the tape.
2 Press TIMER RESET on the rear panel with a pencil or a ball point pen.
3 If a tape is not loaded, press POWER to turn the power on. If a tape is loaded, wait about 1 minute
until the tape protecting function is completed, then press POWER.
3 You may also try the following procedure if the above steps did not resolve the problem (All settings will
be reset to the default settings.).
1 Press POWER on the front panel continuously for about 8 seconds until the current time display on
the front panel shows "- : - -."
2 If a tape is not loaded, press POWER to turn the power on. If a tape is loaded, the tape protecting
function will work and "99" will appear on the front panel display to begin count down. Wait about 1
minute until it reaches "00" to show the tape protecting function is completed, then press POWER.
If the problem with your VCR persists, contact your Mitsubishi dealer for assistance.

Im looking for error codes.

BUSH BTV19SIL NOT LOADING TAPES


There is a small CAM under the foward\reverse takeup wheel. Like a combination lock, must be set in proper sequence to send a signal to eject or load tape. Panasonic VCR has them also.
Hope that this helps, Buddy
P.S. The motor\rubber assembly MUST be set in such a way that the "end of Rubber band line" reaches a certin point WITHOUT turning any more then neccessary because it wll through the switch off aligement.
The LED that the VHS tape covers when it comes down on top of and covers it will give the same problem when it is " caca ".

Can't insert tape into deck


Remove the cover again and move the tape carriage all the way towards the front (the carriage is not fully in the locked position). Once that is done you should be able to load a cassette again.

Tracking problem


Suggestions: 1. Do a "reset" by unplugging VCR for 30 seconds or so. Doubtful to fix- but worth a try. 2. Pull the top cover, load a tape and play. Does the tape seem to wander up and down across the video or control heads? If so, this is a mechanical problem- perhaps a tape guide is broken. 3. Electronic problem: If this is the case, probably trash the unit unless unit is a high dollar ($250 or up). VCRs (like most other consumer electronics) are throw away items these days.
