The cassette adapter uses 1 AA battery. When you place your VHSC tape into the adapter 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

... The takeup reel is turning properly but one of the reel rotation sensors or its electronics is defective. As a test, check to see if the tape counter is changing at any time during the loading and abort process. Non-real time tape counters usually get their pulses from this same sensor. Real time counters operate off of the A/C head control pulses and therefore would not be affected by a defective reel sensor). Some older VCRs used a belt driven counter - the belt may have broken or fallen off. Most newer VCRs use an optical sensor which may simply be dirty. See the section on: "Reel rotation sensors". 2. The roller guides are getting hung up and not fully loading the tape either as a result of an obstruction or dried up grease, or a slipping tape loading belt (often accompanied by an spine tingling squeal). Parts may have broken or fallen off of the roller guide assemblies preventing them from fully engaging the 'V-stoppers'. A similar fault may prevent the capstan from fully engaging against the tape d pinch roller. 3. The mode switch sensor is dirty or defective and confusing the poor microcomputer as to the position of the loading mechanism. In this case, the loading process may stop half way, pause, and then unload as in (1) or (2), above. Or, it may do almost anything. See the section on: "Erratic behavior in various modes". 4. Some other condition such as the end-of-tape sensor thinking that you are at the end of the tape is aborting the tape loading process. This might be indicated by a sudden reversal and shutdown rather than a pause (usually accompanied by the sound of a motor whirring) at some point attempting to complete part of the cycle. For problems with record in particular, the record protect tab switch may be dirty or worn resulting in random aborts. 5. Electronic problems like bad grounds or other bad connections are alos possible. Since with some models, (a number of JVC manufactured VCRs, for example) ground integrity is via screws through the mainboard, should these loosen, erratic behavior may result. Tighten the screws. 6. A defective microcontroller or other logic could also be at fault but this is less likely than any of the preceding.

It may need to be cleaned. Mechanical problems are one of the big problems with VCRs they use alot of mechanical moving parts and play for so long they fail. Plastic parts dont help much either. The pinch roller takes up the slack and is usualy the part that fails first because it constantly runs along the tape and builds a coating on the rubber so it doesnt grip the tape and pull it back into the cassette. If its not pulling the tape back in then it hangs up inside and you cant get the tape out. Fastforward uses the reels to pull the tape not so much the roller. Try and stop 2 times then fast forward then eject the tape. Try and eject the tape while its fastforwarding so it doesnt do anything else. Sometimes machines will unload after its been in fastforwad a while then it will eject. You will hear a change in the sound when it unloads, you can hear the mechanical arms move the tape in and out of the cassette. Thats when you eject it. You cant really clean it till you get the tape out. YOu can clean the pinch roller with fingernail polish or paint remover. It is a wheel inside it looks like a black tire. It pinches the tape against the capstan arm this is why it developes a film or a shine on the rubber making it slip.

You will not know from looking at the VCR if it is in VCR mode or TV
mode. This is more likely a TV issue of whether the TV is
monitoring the VCR or not. Make sure you have the TV selected so
that it is monitoring the VCR.
That VCR/TV button has caused more confusion for the average person than anything else.
Hope Ya Fix It!

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.
