Re: ejecting of tapes
This sounds like the sensor that when you put a tape in then it places it over the sensor saying tape in then takes tape in ready for play and band maybe streached if machine is over 1 year old open case and load tape in and see whats going on if the tape is getting through the guide loading to drumhead and look to see if drum is turning if it is and guides come out to drum then it ejects tape have a look to see if any object is jaming the pinch wheel if pinch wheel is clear then when tape is removed from loading bay use a cotton bud to clean the pinch wheel from dirt as this is the take up side and spindle then try tape again if same resaults clean the sensor where tape sits if same again screw lid down and take for repair
but if in 1 yrs warranty take straight for repair.

Good day It sounds to me like that 1 or more of the drive belts has lost it's tension..(meaning it's time for new belts). Another thing,..some models have a wee light bulb inside that is involved with the loading drawer..it senses that the tape has loaded properly, ..(continue towards "play tape".) If it has burned out,..the machine cannot "see" that the tape is/is not in place,.."shuts down".
Best bet to send to a repair tech for service. Have a "belt&tire kit" plus the bulb replaced...& check over the loading drawer...(a trouble area also).
I will show you how to eject a stuck vhs tape. I did this on the sony slv-d300p
first, unplug it. Next, take out all the screws on the back. Take off the cover.
Locate the loading motor on the right. Turn the gears next to it. After about 5 minutes, the tape should eject. While its open, take a CLEAN piece of paper, hold it up to the drum, and rotate it with the paper against the back. after 5 minutes, take the paper off and stop spinning. the paper may be dirty. put the cover back on, and try to put in a vhs c adapter with NO vhs c in it. when you put it in, it should spit it back out.
While the tape may appear to be loading properly, it is not. These units have a known problem with the grease at the loading arm getting sticky. This means that the tape is not loaded properly and will not move through the VCR properly. This is detected as the hubs not moving and the unit will eject the tape to prevent damage. This is a simple repair for anyone that has done these before, but requires an alignment check. This check requires a special alignment tape and equipment.
unplug then remove the top cover press down on the cassette release and remove the tape then rewind the part of the tape still sticking out by hand push in the button on the side of the cassette to open the cassette cover
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.
This probably indicates a problem with the mechanicals. The tape carriage mechanism might be out of whack/bent/or broken. You might take the top cover off and see is the mechanism is sticking somewhere.
Unfortunately, modern VCRs (last 10+ years) are very cheaply made, and disposeable, unlike the machines of the '80s which were built like tanks in comparison. Thus, unless the problem is minor, repair is doubtful.
What do you mean 'Tape crunches" Do you mean that there is tape slack, which then crunches when Tape is lifted during Eject? If that is the case, then the Supply Reel Roller Brake is bad. it is a Felt Pad, which needs replacing.
If the entire eject operation is wonky, or if it's timing is bad, then I suspect that One of the eject Gears (On either side of the Mechanism) is damaged and needs to be replaced.
One question, i assume that you are able to eject the Tape eventually, and so - Does the Tape Load into the VCR properly, when you insert it into the machine? This will help me in giving you a better diagnosis.
not to overlook the obvious but check to make sure the record safe tab is still on the tape.
(little black tab on lower left corner on back of tape)if tab is gone the machine will not go into record mode.
