Pioneer CT-W208r won't eject tape.


These dual cassette decks were throw away units in most cases. The belt inside and the grease in the cam mechanism is in bad shape and the deck can not cycle through the steps it need to so as to reach stop. Only stop mode will allow the door block to release. The tape can safely be extracted by a Technician. The deck need work. Dual cassette decks are not always worn the repair cost.

Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 8mm Analog... 2 Problems, maybe more unknown at this time:


This does require disassembly to remedy the problem. There are various possible fixes. The most prevelant I have seen is cold solder connections of the board connector for the fpc cable from the top operation switch block ass'y. All you need is someone who can handle this task, like a professional. The controls that you are experiencing problems with are all linked with one cable and connector. One bad solder joint can cause serveral operation faults. Good Luck, magic seadog

Pinch roller stuck in "up" position, eject button won't open door


The very first mistake is to pry a door open. That damages them. You are never to do that. The correct way to get a tape out is to open the unit up and find out why the tape is stuck and then take action to release the door in the normal way- usually it is a loose belt or defective cam motor. As to the Pinch roller there are slide plates and even some pinch rollers had lubrication on them so that may have dried leaving you with a stuck part. The normal order of business is the find out what is stuck and then take action to clean and lubricate the mechanism to return to normal function. The problem with some Pinch Rollers is that there may be a particular spot it needs to be set at. This is true if it has a guide fitted to it. Then you will need either a jig or mirror tape to be able to set it correct again. I can not give any further advice without seeing the unit but this should get you started.

A VHS tape is in the recorder but will not eject. The flap opens when eject key is pressed, the cassette comes up, does not come forward, and then goes back down. The recorder then switches itself off.


Hi, the problem is the tape has got chewed up inside the video the only way your going to get it out is by taking the case of but dont do this whilst its plugged in.

you need to take the tape off and you may have to cut the tape so you can put the case back on and switch it on so the tape will eject, you need to get what ever is keeping it stuck free, the chances are the tape has got chewed up around the drive and this will need cutting free to allow the tape to come out.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks.

you could try fast forwarding a bit or rewinding a bit then try ejecting but failing that your going to need to take the case off to free the tape

When i put a tape in it ejects it..then a tape with a slash appears on the screen


you are prohibited from recording on thips tape. This is because the red tab on the side of the tape that faces you when you are inserting the tape inside the camera has been put in 'SAVE' position . to be able to record o the tape you need to use your fingernail to slide the red tab to the 'REC' position.

Ive extracted the following article for you from wilkepedia to help you understand this issue:
Tape and recording protection
250px-8mm_cassette_erase_tab.jpg magnify-clip.pngThe write-protect switch (right) prevents accidental erasure. .
To prevent the recording on the tape from being erased, there is a small write-protect tab that can be moved to one of two positions, labeled "REC" and "SAVE". Comparing the sliding tab to a door, the tape is in the "REC" position is when the "door" is open and the "SAVE" position when it is closed. (Not all tape cases have markings for this information!) The tape can only be recorded on (or recorded over) when this tab is in the "REC" position. This is an improved version of the VHS write-protect tab, which prevents erasure after it has been (permanently) broken off.

Automatic recording?


Check that the record button on the player is not pushed in. It could be the button stuck behind the casing, or the microswitch on the main circuit board stuck against the switch mech. This should be apparent, as there would be no click when you push the record button.

Also check the REC button on the remote control.

Both of these potentially could cause the symptoms you describe.

The remote control for the later VR series does not, as you say, have an eject button.There is no alternative unfortunately.

Error Code F03


What worked for us when we saw F03? Taking the toothbrush out of the VCR! I kept resetting the unit and nothing worked. Finally, I decided to see what would happen if I stuck a tape in. It wouldn't go in because of the toothbrush! I took it out, reset the unit again and it was fixed.

Maybe the error is not F03, but FO3 meaning there is a FOREIGN OBJECT stuck in the VCR.

Tape stuck in vcr


If the tape is really stuck, your only resort will be to unscrew the cover off the unit and get to the assembly where the tape heads are. You can just simply pull the tape out (carefully). Some of the tape might still be spooled on the capstans or pinch rollers.
