Re: Tape can't eject out
Did the tape go all the way in? If it didn't make it all the way in, try lightly pushing on both ends of the tape to even it out if it is crooked inside the tape slot. If it did go all the way in, and won't release at all, try pressing down on the top of the tape in the slot. Make sure it is evenly positioned in the tape holder.
If it started to come out, but didn't make it all the way out, try doing the same as before by pushing on both ends of the tape to even it out or get it further in to try ejecting again.

Unplug the TV/VCR/DVD Combo from the main power for a couple of minutes, the unit may eject the tape at the power ON. You can also try openening the unit, reset the loading posts and eject the tape by manually turning gears, motors etc..You have to know what you're doing otherwise, you will do more damage or get injured and don't forget HIGH VOLTAGE CAN KILL.

When a tape won't eject, the problem can be caused by several things.
The most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the tape.
This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution on the belt or having the belt replaced. With the cover off (be careful not to touch anything live with power) and try loading and unloading a tape.
Try to find the motor and belt which operates the loading mechanism. Try moving the belt pulley with your finger to give it a little help and see if it continues on with the operation. If it does, the belt is probably slipping. It takes more effort on the belt & pulley during an eject sequence rather than the a load sequence, so it may load fine but have trouble ejecting.
Gravity and the weight of the tape is why you may not have this problem during the load sequence.You will need to take the cover off. Try to find the motor and belt which operates the loading mechanism. Try moving the belt pulley with your finger to give it a little help and see if it continues on with the operation. If it does, the belt is probably slipping.
Hopefully, you won't find any spilled tape in the unit.
Also look for a broken spring or cracked gear or gear with missing teeth.
Let me know what you find out and we'll go from there.
With the set unplugged remove the back and extract the main board. You'll find a metal cover over the tape housing area that is easily removed by removing some screws holding it to the board area and manipulating some wired over it... You should then be able to see the tape and what's hanging it up. If you need to unwrap tape from the pinch roller or around the guides do so carefully. When it all looks free you can either manually crank the load motor assembly to eject the tape or put it back together enough to plug it in and press eject. If you do the later be VERY careful...
THERE IS A SENSOR SWITCH THAT TELLS THE MACHINE THE TAPE IS LOADED ... SOUNDS LIKE IT IS STUCK.
PROBLEM IS ACCESS WITH COMBO'S. THEY ARE A PAIN TO GET AT. THE WHOLE BACK COVER TO THE TV MOST OF THE TIME HAS TO BE REMOVED,...
I KNOW ITS NOT MUCH HELP BUT THE MANUFACTURES KNOW THAT... HOPE YOU CAN GET TO THE TRAY INSIDE.
