    I removed the cover and cut the tape but when I turned on the VCR the tape would not eject. The VCR sounded like the gears were not engaged that lift out the tape. What do I do next? HELP

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.

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?

Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
