After removing a tape which wouldn't completely eject (it went only to the point of being flush with the exit hole, with the right side slightly protruding ... I needed to pull a bit to get it out), I can no longer feed new tapes into my S-VHS deck. The tape goes in until it protrudes only about a half inch, but the motor never takes over to pull the cassette in. Everything was working fine tape after tape until I dealt with that faulty tape (I knew it was faulty because it usually refused to load completely, ejecting itself instead; however, it eventually loaded, played OK, but then had the ejection problem mentioned above).
I've removed the cover from the deck but don't see anything obviously amiss (no loose or obviously snapped parts).
Thanks for any help.

I don't know what this error code means but I have managed to remove tapes which stuck in a VCR and cannot be ejected. Whether you do this is purely up to you, but it's usually possible to remove the casing (carefully!) so that you can get to the tape-handling section. Then it's a matter of gentle probing & trial and error to get the machine to release its hold on the tape. Look for a series of mechanically linked parts which are driven by motor but activated by a microswitch tripped by action of inserting the tape. Just don't strain the linkages and if you remove anything make a note of where it came from.
Take off the battery on the camcorder. Insert the battery and at the SAME time, push the power and the eject to see if this resets the camcorder so it will eject. If this does not work, I'm afraid the unit will need to be taken apart and removed manual. Good Luck
You should take the tape deck out of the dash. Most aftermarket ones have two pairs of holes that you can insert long nails into to disconnect it from the dash. Unplug all the wires and open it up. It has probably eaten the tape and you will have to cut it and pull the strands off the capstan to get the cassette housing out. A pair of forceps, tweezers, and wooden handled cotton swaps and rubbing alcohol are helpful for cleaning and removing the strands of broken 3 7/8 ips tape.
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.
If the methods listed in the manual won't open the door, then the tape is not inserted properly. Insert a golf tee in one of the two small holes below the tape door and slightly adjust the position of the tape up, down, or sideways. Then press the eject button and it should open. This will only work if the belt is OK.
push the eject button at the same time get a nail file and insert it in the
on the right hand side of the deck it may take three hands one to push eject one to push the eject mechanism
inside the radio behind the tape
and one to help remove the tape
if that doesnt work....dont try forcing anything as the stereo WILL break..... take the stereo out of the car, so it is not connected
to the electrics, then either, gently take it apart with a screwdriver
I would suspect the belts, look for any small motors and missing belts.
You may be able to manualy turn a wheel or gear till it ejects.
if your not comfortable doing this urself with the above said porcedures... its better to take it to the dealer...

On Sony DSR-80P error 02-221 and 02-291 is a problem with the tape
pull-in or eject. Mostly the tape stickers are bad situated over the
stripe-cover at the top, which should be moving freely!
Remove the stickers from the tape or put them lower on the case. If the
tape is already inside the machine is unable to reject the tape -
disconnect the machine from electricity to open it or call service...
