Ok sull! you have defective belt drive, or your sensors are not working, clean your sensors under the cassete tape! and maybe defective timing gear!

Hello! the problem is that the cassete holder failed to switch to "compact cassete mode", and it is blocking.

vhc-c adapters? is that what you mean, is the battery that brings the tape out of the shell dead (aa)
retracting the tape means that the vcr does not recognise one of 4 safety states and rejects the tape to avoid damage

Schematic needed to fix machine that rejects tapes

Mode selectswitch first in high priority to clean important cleaning is the first thing by the Philips g110 running mechanism if its not function well.
Everything is timed from put tape in and eject . by selectswitch
20 years ago was it top to repair videos like this . G110 chassis .blaupunkt Grundig Philips Hitachi and Panasonic are made by very little marketing technical differences in the parts beware of that . but just the same kind of VHS recorder .

Why does my tape reject just after inserting?

Generally some part of the mechanism has become damaged and so can't perform correctly. It can't even unload correctly. You have to look around for plastic parts that have either got broken or out of place. New parts then need to be ordered. You will also need a service manual to set up the mechanism correctly once it is fixed. VCR's are rarely set up in the eject mode!

I put the tape in and it doesnt go in all the way, the machine rejects it and spits it out

The loading basket is bad, usually caused by a bad gear linkage, repairs will be pricey.

Vcr tape ejects when i want to record

One possibilty is the record sensor that pushes against the tab on the video tape (the bit you break off to prevent a tape being recorded on) has bent out of shape and the video therefore thinks ALL tapes are pre-recorded or protected and rejects them.

Tape stuck in VCR, won't eject.

you posted 2 different problems here...
to answer this one ". The tape is stuck, won't eject and I'd like to get it out without damaging the VCR unit." unit, find motor that moves tape ejector and spin that motor by hand (power off)

the other problem, "the VCR will not insert a tape. It keeps rejecting it." unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.

most likely problem is a dirty or defective mode switch. this switch tells the internal computer what position the mechanism is in. if the switch is bad, the computer is "confused."
