Tape ejecting mechanism

Hi, I have an AlE, it ejected my last tape then wouldn't go back down, so it is stuck with the tape unit up and in eject tape out mode (no error on screen just empty tape logo). The 'push' door works but there is no noise to indicate it is going to retract, then after five secs the door ejects outwards again and the rest hasn't moved.Any ideas how to get it back down?

SOURCE: CANNOT EJECT TAPE

Thankyou. I do have the problem solved for now. I found a section about solutions in your web page. Several readers had the same problem. I was about to use a hammer on it but some of your readers came up with idea to slap the camera a couple of times on both sides and by golly it opened up. I was taught to handle sensitive items like the camera with care and to avoid jaring the item, but, this time I was lucky. we will see.

SOURCE: tape will not eject

If you remove the power while the basket is halfway up, you should be able to remove the door. Then look to see if the reels are turning when you try to elect the tape. The error code you are getting indicates the reels are not turning for some reason. You can ssist the reels turning as the tape is ejected if you have a small plastic pick or a toothpick into the reels to assist the reels turning and tehn you may be able to remove the tape.

VHS tape will not eject and unit shuts down


It's not loading correctly. You need to open the cover (unplug first) and get familiar with the loading mechanism. You can get the tape out by rotating the loading motor wheel.

Eject the tape on Hitachi VT-FX695. It stays on for about 45 seconds and will not eject and then powers off.


hi,
the door mechanism is may be gripped because of a small kick...
did you try to open the door with a full charged battery and with the wall plug connected too ? help it with a toothpick or the corner of a credit card...
if this doesn't work, it may be the motor that is dead, do you ear any little noise when asking the ejection ? if yes, it is the mechanic, if not, it is the motor or the motor driver that is dead.
cheers,
mich

Why does my RCA VR667 not accept a tape and returns a eject or stop message?


A couple of reasons. First the carriage the tape sits in is damaged. Next the mechanism that moves the tape is damaged and can't except a tape. Lastly or perhaps due to the later, the mode switch is faulty or not in the right position. The mode switch tells the electronics which position the mechanism is in, be it play, fast forward or eject etc. If the switch is faulty and stuck in eject then it wont except a tape.

Cassette stuck in left side, won't eject


The mechanism transport need work to allow the unit to get back to the stop/Eject cam position. Without that the deck is not going to work. This is usually but not always due to a small rubber belt. That is not all that is needed but the primary reason for that failure.

Pinch roller stuck in "up" position, eject button won't open door


The very first mistake is to pry a door open. That damages them. You are never to do that. The correct way to get a tape out is to open the unit up and find out why the tape is stuck and then take action to release the door in the normal way- usually it is a loose belt or defective cam motor. As to the Pinch roller there are slide plates and even some pinch rollers had lubrication on them so that may have dried leaving you with a stuck part. The normal order of business is the find out what is stuck and then take action to clean and lubricate the mechanism to return to normal function. The problem with some Pinch Rollers is that there may be a particular spot it needs to be set at. This is true if it has a guide fitted to it. Then you will need either a jig or mirror tape to be able to set it correct again. I can not give any further advice without seeing the unit but this should get you started.

My VHS tape is stuck and won't eject or plsy


The transport mechanism ff/rewinds and drives the tape back into the cassette when eject is used.

Most likely a bad belt or the drive idler wheel (rubber or geared). Unit would have to be taken apart to "see" what is not happening.

Stuck head unit-- need help understanding the mechanics of a tape deck.


The solution to the problem comes from recognizing the type of transport the unit uses. This can be discovered by looking at the working side or by a person who has some experience working on these. Chances are there is a stuck flywheel assist mechanism and just because the belts are no broken or not turned to goo, that does not mean they are good. Also does the capstan motor turn? If it does not, there is no way the mechanism can right itself and that might mean a new capstan motor. Dual cassette decks were built for profit not for a long lasting unit- that is why the thrift shops should be full of them and why most of them will not work.

I have a NV-DX110B about 11 years old. I'm getting


Your camera appears slightly older than mine so I will do my best for you. Have you tried ejecting the tape with the power off? If I have problems I slide the eject button when the camera is off but plugged in and the tape can be ejected. I suspect the tape mechanism is in trouble. When a tape stuck in mine I had to literally force the cover open. But this is a last resort.

Give my suggestion a try and apologies if you have already tried that...

A vhf tape got stuck in the machine. I could see the tape itself was caught on some moving prongs. now i don't know the proper setting for the prongs and cannot get any vhs tapes to play.


Hi, if VHS tape is in you have only one solution..to disassemble DVD/VCR ..Can you do it ? you may try !!t
Here's how to do it..
* 1 Turn off the COMBO. and unplug it.
* 2 Remove the 4x screws off COMBO on the sides and take off the DVD/VCR casing.
* 3 Look for the Tape which messed up with VCR transport mechanism ,try to release tape of the transport with your hand..
* 4 Since EJECT feature works with power only ,while you keep the tape off from transport plug the device to power and turn it on..Don't worry,you will see the eject mechanism starts moving back on forth,keep the tape off it and let it eject..
* 5.When tape is out .If it destroyed badly normally you should not use it however if the recording in is valuable for you you can cut the chewed portion and
splice it back together .(Pls see the video included...How to fix a broken VHS tape.)
* 6 While it is open,place another Tape to see if mechanism works properly. and eject it...
* 7 Replace the casing and the screws. Plug the player in and turn it on. Now player is finally working ..
Hope this helps!..
Take care and please
