SOURCE: Tape stuck in VCR, won't eject.

depending on th einternal design of the vcr. look for the loading/unloading mech, by finding the blak rubber belt that is looped from the motor to a pully. now turn it one way. it may thak 25 to 50 complete rotations of the belt. try turning both ways, one will load & 1 will unlaod. good luck.

SOURCE: 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."...open 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."...open unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.

SOURCE: vcr will not play tapes,it ejects the tape after a few seconds

This may be caused by the mode switch.
By the way it uses a K-Deck Mechanism.

My zenith 4head vcr works, then stops


When a VCR encounters a mechanical problem, the electronics will stop playback and shut it down. I suspect that fault has developed in the mechanism and that the tape becomes jammed. The only way to find out it to take off the top cover and watch what happens when the video tape is played.

VCR accepts tape, then turns off


I think that there is something wrong with the tape you are using. The locking mechanizm is stuck and when the VCR can't turn the reels it will eject the tape. I'm assuming that you didn't try other tapes to see if it acts the same. You can unstick the locking mechanizm by putting a pencil or something like it in the 1/4" hole between the reels on the back side of the tape. Just try pushing down on that brake release. This has worked for me. Good luck.

VCR repeatedly tries to play and eject when tape deck is empty


the tape carriage is probably stuck, or something stuck inside blocking the tape sensor.
feed a tape in and see if it does it "with" the tape too

hope this helps
