You need to purchase a VHS head cleaner or clean the heads and pinch rollers by hand. remove cover and lid to drive system. you will see all the tape guides, rollers and heads. use Q-tips and denatured alcohol and clean every thing the tape touches. swap q-tips as they get dirty.

SOURCE: Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder VCR Combo plays vcr for about 5 second then stops and shut off, when turned back on it ejects the tape.

This combo has a problem with the vcr unit which take up wheel will stop working and spill the tape. the unit will stop and eject the tape. You have to replace the whole vcr assembly.

SOURCE: vhs tape stuck in vcr

Some one needs to open it to see if the tape is loaded but wrapped around a post or tangled up.

What usually causes this is the mechanism that moves the tape has a problem---bad or broken belt or rubber drive wheel that moves tape is bad.

Its called eating tapes.

With it apart you may be able to extract the tape and then insert with it apart to see if reels etc are or are not moving in RR and FF first and then in play to see what is not moving.

SOURCE: The VCR accepts the tape and starts to play; then stops and shuts off; when you turn the power back on the tape ejects

You have a transport problem, the mechanism the plays, FF or rewinds is not working.

Someone is going to have to open and look at the unit---as simple as a belt off or broken to the idler (rubber or geared) that doe the actual work, finding a shop that will work on a VCR unit is getting hard as most of the current techs have never seen this type of unit.

What I used to do when I opened one was have a old cassette with the tape removed! but the reels inside of it still there--tape off both sides of the cassette where it opens so the sensors on either side do not try to stop the unit from allowing this.

This way with the unit open and the dummy cassette in you can see thru its top to see if the reels are moving or not and not have the tape get in the way.

Camcorder VHS tape is tangled


Sometimes you can salvage a VHS tape by opening the cassette and manually winding or rewinding the tape to put the damaged section to one side and under tension to "iron out" the wrinkles. Your Fuji Hi8 tape may be quite thin so this repair may not work.

I recenly purchased a DV225MG9 A DVD/CD Player with Video Cassette Recorder. After only a few hours of use, the power will not turn on. I now have a VHS cassette that is in the machine and I cannot


1) this a difficult matter since the VHS TAPE is inside.Try to unplugged the EQUIPMENT many times and eject the button for to see if eject the TAPE.
2) put a little of alcohol with a jeringa in switch eject, and try it.
3) if this do not RESOLVE the problem, you take to cut the tape, or dissasembley the section, or go to some repair shop TV for fix it.
Remember unplugged the power cord before to do anything inside of equipment.

Vhs player eating tape


Hunnn....Eats the tapes, with salt & paper?..just a joke!
The tape runs on a guide ( sort of a tiny ledge )when it is fully engaged. The tape cartgage is loaded ' sucked ' in with gears that drop the cartage on top of other switches to give direction, so that "fingers" pull the tape towards the reading\recording heads. When the tape IS aligned properly, BUT is locked in the proper position the tape will NOT touch the upper or lower "ledge" that keeps it accross the heads.When the tape is NOT aligned the upper or lower tape WILL touch causeing damage. OPEN THE CARTGAGE ,Look to see if the upper & lower of the tape is damaged. Now when you say "eats the vhs tape" Does the tape comes out WRINKLE, CRINKLED,CRAMPED UP??? Then that could be ANY wheel with a black rubber rim. going bad. replace if you can. but they are VERY HARD TO FIND if u don't know what u are doing.

Panasonic PV-L557D vhs-c camcorder wont stay on


it probably goes into a shutdown mode because of those dreaded pan capacitors!!. These are small surface mounted capacitors that dont just go bad in almost all camcorders but they will leak and be very very corrosive to the Printed curcuit board and eat up the pc traces!! The onlt way to see if this is the problem is to have the unit looked at by a quilifyed camcorder specialist and see if that is the problem? Good luck

VCR eats the tape


you have a bad take-up reel clutch or a belt on the bottom of the player mechanism that is causing this trouble.
