Question about JVC Televison & Video
JVC VCR #HR-VP618U (older model). It will not release the cassette when ejected and breaks the tape when I remove it.
There is a spring attached to the tape release gear that will eventuall wear out through time, also, sometimes the rubber belts wear out and throws the timing off.
That would be the first two things to check. Make sure spring is not stretched. Try testing with cover off and watch to see if the part holding the back of the tape releases.

First locate the load and unload motor, it is the one with the rubber drive band. release the drive band and rotate the gear to raise and pull the carriage back into position.
This should remove your cassette, and put the carriage back into position.
I hope this helps,
