Re: can't eject tape that was just put in.

Your DC to DC converter start up with protection,It been disteract with something,you don`t have a part of power supply. If you have another DCR 11 you can change board JC 12. I think that is the problem. Good luck!

When I put a tape in, it immediately ejects it.

Try to find out, where the tape drive stops and why. If there is debris in the recorder it could fake the tape is not going where the recorder expect it to go. There are lots of reasons why the recorder will spit out the cassette. In the first place it does so, to protect the tape for damage, because the sensors don't sense a normal flow of the tape.

Tape keeps ejecting

You can check tape player for any type of object lodged in it. Maybe unplug and turn upside down to here anything inside. Or even any broken tape that come off inside. The only other thing is that the belts inside are worn and will not put device back in play mode.

Tape keeps getting ejected

This unit requires the rubber parts to be replaced. The loading sequence is not completing properly. The VCR will eject the tape when the sequence fails as a safety measure to prevent damage to either the VCR or the tape.

Parts cost for this should not be more than $10.

VCR ejects blank tape only

It sounds like the cassette is not releasing the tape so the machine can put it around the heads. This could damage the machine. Don't use it. A two dollar tape is not worth damaging your vcr. Throw it away.

VCR tape won't eject

you should take the bottom off and you will see a gear with a belt around it try to turn it the same direction as when it is turned off, do not force it but it may need a little force to move the wheel.

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 have the belt replaced. Belts are inexpensive but sometimes difficult to get to. Most of the repair expense will be in the labor. Unplug the unit and take the cover off. Hopefully there will be enough clearance so you can get to the tape. Try to find the motor and belt that is responsible for operating the eject mechanism. The motor will look like a shiny cylinder, about the diameter of a quarter and will have a plastic pulley attched to the shaft. You can rotate the pulley and belt with your fingers and manually eject the tape. If the tape is around the spindles and video head, you will need to manually move the mechansim that retracts the spindles and returns the tape to the cartridge. While you may be successful in getting the tape out, you need to find out what caused the problem in the first place. Putting in another tape will most like become stuck again unless the problem is identified and resolved. Also look for a broken spring or cracked gear (missing teeth) in the eject mechanism. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance Good luck! - Jim

Ejecting of tapes

this sounds like the sensor that when you put a tape in then it places it over the sensor saying tape in then takes tape in ready for play and band maybe streached if machine is over 1 year old open case and load tape in and see whats going on if the tape is getting through the guide loading to drumhead and look to see if drum is turning if it is and guides come out to drum then it ejects tape have a look to see if any object is jaming the pinch wheel if pinch wheel is clear then when tape is removed from loading bay use a cotton bud to clean the pinch wheel from dirt as this is the take up side and spindle then try tape again if same resaults clean the sensor where tape sits if same again screw lid down and take for repair but if in 1 yrs warranty take straight for repair. good luck
