If your Emerson TV is an older unit, the VHS player may have worn out

I'm guessing the "black thing in side" is referring to the actual tape itself- ribbon like which can be spooled out of the tape case. If so, then your VCR may have a mechanical problem of some sort, which results in a "no tape transport" or "no tape takeup" problem. If the latter, the right reel (takeup reel) is not being driven. Older VCRs often used a small rubber rimmed drive mechanism to drive this reel. Newer VCRs (10 years old or less) pretty much use a gear drive. Something may be broken here, or perhaps the gear is stuck. This gear assembly has to swivel back and forth, from left for rewind, to right for takeup or fast-forward. Unfortunately, you can't see the gear once the tape is in the machine, at least not from the topside. Suggestion: Take the top cover of VCR off, look for this gear, and see if it swivels freely, look for broken gear teeth.

SOURCE: vhs tape gets chewed

Dear William,
the rubber belts and rubber capstan need cleaning/conditioning. you can attempt this with alcohol swabs and if you find rubber conditioner (in the past was easy to find in audio supply stores) apply some of this also. if this treatment does not solve, then may need new rubber belt kit. good luck.

SOURCE: vhs player eating tape

Hunnn....Eats the tapes, with salt & paper?..just a joke!
The tape runs on a guide ( sort of a tiny ledge )when it is fully engaged. The tape cartgage is loaded ' sucked ' in with gears that drop the cartage on top of other switches to give direction, so that "fingers" pull the tape towards the reading\recording heads. When the tape IS aligned properly, BUT is locked in the proper position the tape will NOT touch the upper or lower "ledge" that keeps it accross the heads.When the tape is NOT aligned the upper or lower tape WILL touch causeing damage. OPEN THE CARTGAGE ,Look to see if the upper & lower of the tape is damaged. Now when you say "eats the vhs tape" Does the tape comes out WRINKLE, CRINKLED,CRAMPED UP??? Then that could be ANY wheel with a black rubber rim. going bad. replace if you can. but they are VERY HARD TO FIND if u don't know what u are doing.

How to remove a cassette stocked in a vhs machine?


If the VHS tape is stuck inside, and when you push the eject button, it wont come out. Then you need to unplug the VHS player, take it apart so that you can access the inside. See how the tape is stuck inside and start to take it out the best you can. Once you get it out you may have to throw away the tape if it is messed up badly, if not wind it back up. Put the VHS player back together once you get the tape out. Then try to play another VHS tape and see if it works again. If not, it may be a bad VHS player or it may be the tapes. Hope this helps. I have had to take mine apart to take a tape out, so that's how I know

My VHS player will occasionally accept the vhs tape but then it pulls out the film then turns off or ejects the tapes how can i fix it


Unfortunately there is some damage to the drive mechanism of the VCR. This will need to be fixed. I can't say what is causing it, but it is clearly not pulling the tape back inside the cassette before the eject action takes place.

Power off when inserting vhs tape


I had this problem when copying an old family vhs tape. I had to unscrew the top of the magnavox to access the vhs tape. Then, I gently removed the tape and replaced the cover. After winding the tape back, I put it in the player and immediately pushed fast forward for about 3 seconds before hitting play followed by d.dubbing. I was able to make a copy of the tape and did not damage my original.

Have MAG TV model CT270MW8 27 inch that wont stay on unless a VHS tape is in and then only if VHS player ejects it (automatically) and then reiserts itself. The tape then/must stay in


You have a mechanism problem in the player---it has two sensors in the tray and they detect the tape is in and load it.

If the unit was working it will each time turned on cycle the mechanism to see that it functions--shutdown if not functioning correctly.

I have an old emerson TV/VCR (Digital Tracking VHSHQ) The TV works fine, but when I put a tape in it is ejected and part of the tape stays inside, but can be pulled out.


Try a VHS Cleaning Tape Cassette. Follow it's instructions. If no better result it's not worth throwing away money on having repairs done but better put toward, if you can afford to, buying:
Option 1. A VHS/DVD player (combo as these are known) and plug that into the Emerson AV input.
Option Two: A VHS/DVD twin recorder combo deck - and plug that in.
Then start on copying any VHS tapes you cherish to DVD on this device.
Option Three: Forget the Emerson except for just using as a TV and buy a new TV with DVD player built in - the latest type of combo.
(I'm having to guess whether you've just used tapes to watch or record and watch)

Vhs eject will not release tape.


I had a suggestion that did work. Reach into the VHS compartment with left hand and press down toward the back of the tape. With the right hand press the eject button a few times and the tape did come out. I would not buy a Samsung product again. No help from their 800 tech support. No more playing the VHS side of the player. Lynn
