Tape cassette stuck after rewinding. Will not eject.

I've removed the top cover, but can't see how to release the cartridge. The gear seems locked. The rear cassette flap is still raised, but excess exposed tape is free. Thanks. Charlie

This happened to me with a Sanyo model but I believe this may be a universal solution.
Remove the top cover and the front panel.
The tape is held in a basket held down by 2 (only) screws toward the back end of the basket. Unscrew the two screws. Wiggle the basket out. The tape should come out with it.
Turn the basket upside down and the tape should slide out, because it is now not being obstructed by mechanical stuff that was holding it in while it was screwed onto the base.
Reassemble. Good luck!

My VHS tape is stuck and won't eject or plsy


The transport mechanism ff/rewinds and drives the tape back into the cassette when eject is used.

Most likely a bad belt or the drive idler wheel (rubber or geared). Unit would have to be taken apart to "see" what is not happening.

Hi,

Unfortunately, the best chance you got of getting the tape out is to open up the video to release the tape.

Cassette is stuck. Cannot eject


Sounds like the tape is dragging and the spindle wont release it because of the torque on it. Can you rewind or fast forward to see if it releases?

VCR tape is stuck - will not rewind or eject.


There schould be a release buuton on the rear of the machine. It's usually recessed and may be difficult to see. Press this with the yip if a ballpoint pen and extract the tape. If the tape is wrapped around the record/playback heads your only option is to remove the top cover and manually remove the tape. Sounds difficult but if you take your time it's not too bad a job.

VCR ejecting my cassettes


Try removing the top cover & have a look to see what happens when you put the tape in & press play/rewind etc. Is the take up spool (right hand spool) turning properly or is there slack tape not being taken into the cassette? Are the heads spinning ? I think your problem is more likely to do with the tape not travelling smoothly around the tape path. Possibly the clutch gears need cleaned or the soft brakes may not be dis-engaging properly.

Will not release the cassette when ejected and breaks the tape.


there is a spring attached to the tape release gear that will eventuall wear out through time, also, sometimes the rubber belts wear out and throws the timing off.
That would be the first two things to check. Make sure spring is not stretched. Try testing with cover off and watch to see if the part holding the back of the tape releases.

Tape stuck in vcr


Hello tcsabug,

 

First locate the load and unload motor, it is the one with the rubber drive band. release the drive band and rotate the gear to raise and pull the carriage back into position.

This should remove your cassette, and put the carriage back into position.

 

I hope this helps,

Thank You,
