Hi I am Vortash sounds like the tape is either still around the heads and the carrige has not been released by the mechanism or the carrige motor is not reciveng the eject signal or power to the motor . This can be for a number of reasons none repairable by unskilled personel . the timing and balance of a VCR is like a balanced Watch movement one cog out of place and the whole lot fails to work again my advice is to seek an engineer to reset this for you ,.. regards Vortash

    The is a blue plastic gear underneath the circuit board directly underneath the transport (remove borrom panel). This controls the threading arms. It cracks and it will not unthread and eject. MCM sells a new (improved ) one. Call them at 1-800-543-4330.

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....


When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian

VHS tape plays for a few seconds and automatically ejects


My guess would be dirt on the rollers inside the VCR. They sesnse a jam and ejct. Try a VCR cleaner (with cleaning fluid) and see if that helps.

The problem may very well be a slipping spool idler that does not tension the tape properly when trying to eject. Try cleaning the rubber friction surfaces or replacing the part....accordianman

Tapes not playing


Hey do the tapes play at all? sometimes some tapes recorded
on other machines won't play on others. maybe you need to adjust the tracking on the VCR you are playing it on. If the tape
was recorded on a VCR that is misaligned it might not play back
on another VCR. Also the tape may have been recorded on a
super VHS VCR in et (extended definition) mode if so they won't play on just any VCR. If the picture looks scrambled like a
premium channel on analog cable then it's probably recorded in et.
and if its recorded on super VHS tape it may eject out of your VCR.
They don't make these S-VHS vcrs anymore but people still
have them around. There is also Digital VHS they're not
compatible with VHS either. A VHS recorded in et mode will
play on some more expensive vcrs it should say so on the box
or instructions.

Why does the VCR ejects my tape?


The VHS PlayPak adaptor uses 1 AA battery. When you place your VHS-C tape into the adaptor and close the cover, you will hear the motor running and the red piece on the adapter will move inside. Check the placement of the battery and make sure the clear shrink-wrap has been removed from the battery.
