Why is my vcr chewing up tapes

The answer is easy take the top off the unit, and with an old video tape try it and watch what the video does. This is the only way really as the causes of tape damage are many, including objects that have got into the works. The only tape chew fault that can be put down to a single thing, is the crinkle bottom or top edge. Which is caused by the pinch roller being worn.
Once you see what it does you can post again and describe it, we are FixYa should be able to pin it down.

Video tape will not eject

Try removing the cover from the VCR. Make sure the plug is removed!!! Wouldn't want you to get a whack of 240 volts. The tape is probably snagged in the reel.You may have to cut the tape to remove it as it will be probably chewed. Before you screw the cover back on to the VCR. Plug the VCR in, and then try to insert a 'new' tape. (perhaps a cartoon tape or one that is of little value to you will be in order, as you don't want to wreck another tape of value). Make sure the tape plays and ejects correctly before replacing cover. If not try and locate the problem, remebering that the VCR is still plugged into the MAINS! Be careful. I reckon the tape is just twistyed on the reel though.

Good Luck.

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.

Most VCR's will auto-rewind the tape when it gets to the end of a tape. Most will leave the tape in the unit assuming you may wish to view it again once rewound. Does the tape eject properly when you press the eject button? What does the manula say about the eject function?

Tape stuck in RCA VR501

This could require a tech savvy person to help you, but maybe... You might be able to remove the tape carriage assembly (this is the assembly which loads and unloads the tape). There will be 2 or 4 screws which hold this assembly in place. It is possible however, these screws are "covered up" by the tape being there. These mechanisms are often gear or gear-like driven. If you see these gears, you might be able to turn them (or the motor which runs them) by hand, and get the tape fully unloaded. Use care- modern VCRs (since the early '90s) are easily broken, or the thin metal bent. Also, the gears must be exactly in time- that is, exactly positioned with each other. Being off by just one tooth will result in a non-working mechanism.
