Sony slv-960 VCR cassette stuck inside

Put cassette into VCR. Tape did not loop around heads. Now will not eject cassette. Seems that some part of the mechanism is stuck because motor will "try" to eject but nothing else happens. TIA

As your "free service" is not free I solved the problem by throwing the item into the trash.

Tape loaded normally but now won't eject. The unit just powers off after a few seconds.


Unplug the power from the combo unit and give it 30 seconds, now plug back in, sometimes this will eject the tape, if not! take the top off the machine and check to see if the tape is spewed in the mechanical section and around the video head, if yes! get a pair of scissors and cut the tape carefully to avoid damaging the video head and remove all tape deb-ri, now power up and eject the main cassette. But! if you find the cassette has loaded in place and the tape is still in the vhs cassette, this would indicate a loading problem with the main carriage, broken belt, bad idler assembly and possibly sensor issues.

Sony slv-n700 has been in storage. Has been used very little. Last used successfully approximately 1 1/2 year ago. Loads tape around read head, seems to try to start to play, but cassette spools do not...


VHS tapes, VCR's, as well as cassettes have all become obsolete. Putting these in storage is bad for them. They contain rubber parts on the inside that do not do well in cold weather in storage if that is where they were stored. You could possibly get replacements from the internet. With todays technology I would recommend going digital or DVD's or maybe even Blu-ray. Hope this helps.

Vcr ejects tape when i try to record.


is the erase protection tab removed from the cassette?
if yes there is a square hole on the back of the tape visible when you insert it.
put a piece of sticky tape over this hole and make shure it does not come loose.
it should record fine now when you insert it again.

VCR tape is stuck - will not rewind or eject.


There schould be a release buuton on the rear of the machine. It's usually recessed and may be difficult to see. Press this with the yip if a ballpoint pen and extract the tape. If the tape is wrapped around the record/playback heads your only option is to remove the top cover and manually remove the tape. Sounds difficult but if you take your time it's not too bad a job.

Sony SLV-640HF VHS VCR ejects any tape after a couple of seconds


While the tape may appear to be loading properly, it is not. These units have a known problem with the grease at the loading arm getting sticky. This means that the tape is not loaded properly and will not move through the VCR properly. This is detected as the hubs not moving and the unit will eject the tape to prevent damage. This is a simple repair for anyone that has done these before, but requires an alignment check. This check requires a special alignment tape and equipment.

This should be a labor only repair.

Tape stuck in VCR


With care, it is possible to retrieve the tape. VCR housings are held on only with a half-dozen screws and once those are removed, you will be able to see the transport. If the tape itself was defective (it only takes a stretch of tape with finger oils on it) then you will see it wrapped around several things with the worst of it around the drum itself.
The transport, if its control electronics has died, can be operated by hand once you have the tape free and laying loose so that you can manually eject the tape.
If you have made it that far, you will have a cassette with a long loop of tape dangling out.
On the bottom of the cassette is a hole a little larger than a pencil in diameter and you have to use something like a pencil stuck in the hole to release the brake. Once released, you can turn the takeup reel from underneath and wind the tape back into the cassette.
Unless the VCR is totally dead, I would take another cassette, one that isn't important to you, and see if that one will load while you watch the mechanism. If it loads and can be ejected afterward, then the first cassette was at fault in the jam.
DON'T touch the surface of the video head unless you clean it throughly with a soft cloth and some window cleaner afterward.

The VCR is detecting something it doesn't like. Could be a foreign object inside, or the gearing out of time or ... Take the cover off and watch it as it loads and you'll probably figure out why.
