Question about Televison & Video
Many times when I try to rewind a tape from my Sony EV-C100 8mm deck the tape will eject. Many times I can either keep trying and it will work or I will fast forward for 1 minute of tape then try again and it works. I'm skilled enough to fix it if I knew why it does this. Thanks in advance for any help.
Try cleaning or replacing the mode switch.

Way to go. Usually if you use anisotropic Alcohol with a few Q-tips works well I've found.
Try cleaning the other tap path items like the capstan that the pinch roller get's pushed up to also with this Alcohol. The cleaner the better the tape goes through. Much better picture.

SOURCE: ev -c100 accepted cassete and
Accepting casette, and not ejecting is purly mechanical problem. In sony sets, all loading and unloding process is done by capstan motor itself. There is a belt connected from capstan motor to loading unloading mechanism. If this belt gets loose, this type of fault will occur. In some sony sets, this is a fiber type flat belt having teeth on it, and called as timing belt. It is not flexible one like rubber. There is liver mechanism connected with this belt to tight it, bey loosen a screw and an adjuster.Just open your VCR, and locate this belt. If it a rubber based one, replace it. If it is a fiber based one tight it. This will solve your problem. As far as intake is OK, the there is no wheel fault, Ejecting casette needs more force than intake. Do it with cofidence. If you need anymore assistance, feel free to get me through fixya. OK.

l would sacrifice a old or bad tape here, remove all the tape inside a cassette and tape off the small sensor holes on each side.
That way no tape to damage and you can insert it to see what is happening.
What likely is the issue is when stop it, it or if the tape does not fully load against the drum with heads, when the arms retract that pull the tape out of the cassette the mechanism is not switching to rewind it back into the cassette.
Usually this means a belt is slipping or the idler unit is not working---belts can break or stretch or even come off---belts will get slopply or bad from NO use and it is common.
