HELP! JVC-BRS822U ejectomatic

Hi, Bought a used BR822U for $37 and it powers up, display lights, accepts tape but after a moment ejects it with "32" displayed. Hopefully not a terminal error, but I may have gotten what I paid for. The reason I purchased it is to give me a good analog signal (hopefully better quality than a nicely working Panasonic 1000B I got for $5) for capture through a Canopus 300 . Any suggestions? I don't have the manual and a peek under the lid gave me a bit of a scare. Any help appreciated. Paul

Re: HELP! JVC-BRS822U ejectomatic

I have a similar problem on a SONY SLV-700HF. It may be a drive belt problem with the take-up spool not gathering the tape. I'll be interested in any other suggestions before I pay out the $30 or so for a set of new belts.

Hi, I have a JVC HR-J658 VCR that doesn't eject tapes.

You mean a tape is stuck inside? Disconnect power and open up the cover. If the tape is stuck around the posts, free it and by manually turning the loading motor you can slowly get the mechanism to eject the tape.

Red light blinking won't accept tape

If a tape "hung" up and it won't accept one you have a loading issue.

The unit may use a belt to drive the tray or a geared mechanism.

In any case someone needs to open the unit up to "see" what is happening. Most of these a tape can be inserted with power off and manually cycled into the unit to see the issue---we usually use a old cassette with the tape inside removed to avoid issues.

If you cannot do that consider looking for a shop who will (some no longer work on this type of equipment.)

My vcr will accept a tape and begin to function only when there is no other electrical device plugged into the same circut. If anything is plugged in at the same time the vcr ejects the tape and wont try,...

Weird one! The only thing I can think that would cause that is that the other things reduce the load on the socket so the VCR can't get enough power to function right. Have you had an electrician check the wiring in your house and inparticular that socket? Otherwise I would guess it's a power supply problem on the VCR. It's not the fuse anyway they would just blow causing no power at all!

I have a HR-J625EA JVC VCR & video cannot be ejected.

this sounds like a sensor problem the vcr thinks the tape has been ejected and then turns off! this will cost more to fix then a new VCR!

Won't properly accept tapes/ tape won't fully insert

probably a bent cassette housing in the deck - time to seek out jvc authorized repair.

JVC HR -J655EK Video Stuck

Hi hannah. The simplest way to remove stuck tapes is to remove the top cover. Usually just a couple of screws. Then remove the stuck tape and put the cover back into place. You can also look for emergency eject hole and insert a snall pin into the hole and attempt to eject the disc while repeatedly twisting the pin inside the hole.

Good luck!

Flashing auto display - won't power up

The infra red light in the middle of the mechanical deck, that powers the left and right photo sensors is not ok.It looks like a small lamp( you cant see it when it works-Infra red mind it).The video cassette has a large round opening in the bottom towords the front, and accomodates this lamp.please check it out.

Error "04" on display & tape won't eject

you have bad capacitors in your power supply. i would suggest you take your unit to a good shop in your area and request a power supply re-build and mode switch cleaning.

the switch is on the electronic board under the tape compartment. you have to unscrew the screws and unplug all the wires to take it out. be careful though, you have to put it back the way it was otherwise you will mess up the machanisim on that machine. good luck
