First unplug the VCR then you can carefully unscrew the screws that hold the body to the base of your machine and you can carefully remove your tape !?!

Vcr tape stuck


Hello there daniel and thanks you for choosing fixya
well it sounds like your vcr player may have a head that is dirty or the eject mechanism is either faulty or needs to be cleaned or repaired
what you will have to do is remove all the screws holding the case on then remove the case this will expose the internal parts and there will be a small lever towards the rear of it where the band is at if you push back on it then you will be able to lift up on the carriage that holds the tape thus letting it free then remove the tape and carefully inspect all parts to see if any thing is broken or just really dirty a vacume with the wand attachment works well for getting out all the dirt and stuff out of it aso clean the vcr head this is the part that reads the tape with some rubbing alcohol then if you can get some canned
air and blow every thing out then reassemble the vcr and see if it now works ok
Post me a comment if it still does not work

A vhf tape got stuck in the machine. I could see the tape itself was caught on some moving prongs. now i don't know the proper setting for the prongs and cannot get any vhs tapes to play.


Hi, if VHS tape is in you have only one solution..to disassemble DVD/VCR ..Can you do it ? you may try !!t
Here's how to do it..
* 1 Turn off the COMBO. and unplug it.
* 2 Remove the 4x screws off COMBO on the sides and take off the DVD/VCR casing.
* 3 Look for the Tape which messed up with VCR transport mechanism ,try to release tape of the transport with your hand..
* 4 Since EJECT feature works with power only ,while you keep the tape off from transport plug the device to power and turn it on..Don't worry,you will see the eject mechanism starts moving back on forth,keep the tape off it and let it eject..
* 5.When tape is out .If it destroyed badly normally you should not use it however if the recording in is valuable for you you can cut the chewed portion and
splice it back together .(Pls see the video included...How to fix a broken VHS tape.)
* 6 While it is open,place another Tape to see if mechanism works properly. and eject it...
* 7 Replace the casing and the screws. Plug the player in and turn it on. Now player is finally working ..
Hope this helps!..
Take care and please

Tape stuck in vcr. when you press the eject button vcr starts to work but shtuts off the power Model number DVR-3034N. I have only taken the front and back covers off. Turned slanted roller untill the...


It sounds like the tape is jammed in the vcr, remove the top cover of the machine this will expose the tape. If the tape is spewed in the mechanical section and around the video head, get a pair of scissors and start cutting the tape and carefully remove all tape particles, when all tape debris has been removed, plug in vcr turn on and eject. If the tape looks good, you may have a loading basket problem, bad idler ***. or broken drive belt. "Lets hope for the best"

VCR won't eject tape - timing of loading mechanism is off


Now-a-days most of the gears are made out of plastic(HDPE, if I remember correctly), when the rewinding command is given even if one gear tooth is worn/broken it will throw the entire timing out of 'gear'. Since the problem has already occurred, and, this is the only function that has malfunctioned my advice would be to leave it as it is! ('cos repairing/replacing it is manual & therefore a costly affair plus there is no guarantee that the replacedment will function properly)....sodeep

We have an emerson vcr model ewv 401a. It is new only used twice in the past yera or so. Put in tape, tape was stuck we were able to remove the tape but the vcr keeps turning self off after about10 seconds...


there is an acrylic post inside that directs a light beam to several different places so when the light beam is broken then it tells other parts that the tape is loaded this could be broken off or if the tape broke off inside a piece could be wrapped around a capstan or drive post causing the machine to think it is at the end of the tape and to turn itself off.

Excess tape slack and the drives are not able to correct due to age/ lack of service. See if you can get the cover off and verify that the machine is at least trying to shuttle the tape. If that's the case, the idlers need to be replaced...accordianman

I'm guessing the "black thing in side" is referring to the actual tape itself- ribbon like which can be spooled out of the tape case. If so, then your VCR may have a mechanical problem of some sort, which results in a "no tape transport" or "no tape takeup" problem. If the latter, the right reel (takeup reel) is not being driven. Older VCRs often used a small rubber rimmed drive mechanism to drive this reel. Newer VCRs (10 years old or less) pretty much use a gear drive. Something may be broken here, or perhaps the gear is stuck. This gear assembly has to swivel back and forth, from left for rewind, to right for takeup or fast-forward. Unfortunately, you can't see the gear once the tape is in the machine, at least not from the topside. Suggestion: Take the top cover of VCR off, look for this gear, and see if it swivels freely, look for broken gear teeth.

Cassette stuck in VCR


You are almost on the right track. did you look where your finger was? what happened was you did not allow the blocking a photo sensor which mimicked the clear part of the tape and this caused the eject to take place. What was happening in your case was the arm would come fully out and the sensor would sense no tape so the VCR shut off in a trouble condition to prevent damage from ocurrin.
