Eject the tape on Hitachi VT-FX695. It stays on for about 45 seconds and will not eject and then powers off.


hi,
the door mechanism is may be gripped because of a small kick...
did you try to open the door with a full charged battery and with the wall plug connected too ? help it with a toothpick or the corner of a credit card...
if this doesn't work, it may be the motor that is dead, do you ear any little noise when asking the ejection ? if yes, it is the mechanic, if not, it is the motor or the motor driver that is dead.
cheers,
mich

VCR won't eject tape or play & powers off


It sounds as though it's jammed. If you're mechanically inclined you can unplug the unit, take the cover off, and manually eject it. Just look for the motor that drives the load basket and manually spin the shaft. The guide-posts should retract towards the tape and the basket will then lift and eject. Just be aware that whatever bit of tape that's out of the cassette won't spool back in. You will have to do that bu hand once it's out.
When you're done, plug it back in and let it cycle then put an old cheap tape in and see if it works. If not, take it in for repair.

VCR's have a thing called a mode switch. This tells the electronics of the machine what position the mechanical section is in. If it gets wrong signals then the VCR electronics will take action to correct the problem. In this case ejecting any tape you put in. These wrong signals are caused by the damage to the VCR mechanical section, which might account for the tape getting stuck. Even though you have removed it, doing so repositioned various parts. Perhaps in this case something to do with the carriage unit, being in the wrong position. In any case the whole mechanical system will need to be reset. This is not an easy thing to do and unless you have set up the VCR before a service manual will be needed. This is because everything will have to be set right or different problems will happen. For example it is common practice in Panasonic VCR's to have the carriage in the loaded position when setting it up. And you will also need to know the correct position of various items - including the mode switch!
Before doing so I would look around to see if any plastic parts are damaged.
Panasonic use the same mechanical systems in different models. They tend to be called after a letter of the alphabet, such as K-Deck etc. I don't know which one your model uses but finding it out well make life easy for you repairing the machine.

The mechanism on VCR are complicated. You can open it (make sure its not plugged in). Try to rotate the motor manually that is responsible for the loading mechanism. So that you can eject the tape. Or if you want you can just take out the whole VCR mechanism so that your TV will not shut off. if you are succesfull in ejecting the tape manually and also pay close attention to the mechanism. Do not put another tape in there unles you find out what is causing the mechanical prblem.

Sony DCR-PC100 does not eject (well not really!)


Don't think this is a complete solution, but it might help. Try checking out the buttons on the camera. I've got one of those same cameras but my problem is the ribbon cable in the cassette carrier broke and I'm on the hunt for a new one, and a service manual. By the way, how about emailing a copy of the service manual to me at ljmagnuson@aol.com. Thanks. I might be able to help further with a copy of that.

Tape mechanism


This sounds bizarre I know, but I read another threat regarding Canon camcorders and tapes self ejecting. The advice was to ........ wait for it........ drop it onto a carpet floor from about 1/2m. My wife top me not to consider it. I continued reading and someone else had been successful using the technique. I have to report that it actually works. I dropped it (twice for good measure) and it loads tapes once again. Its true what they say, if in doubt....give it a clout!!!

When a tape won't eject, the problem can be caused by several things. The most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the tape. This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution on the belt or have the belt replaced. Belts are inexpensive but sometimes difficult to get to. Most of the repair expense will be in the labor. Unplug the unit and take the cover off. Hopefully there will be enough clearance so you can get to the tape. Try to find the motor and belt that is responsible for operating the eject mechanism. The motor will look like a shiny cylinder, about the diameter of a quarter and will have a plastic pulley attched to the shaft. You can rotate the pulley and belt with your fingers and manually eject the tape. If the tape is around the spindles and video head, you will need to manually move the mechansim that retracts the spindles and returns the tape to the cartridge. While you may be successful in getting the tape out, you need to find out what caused the problem in the first place. Putting in another tape will most like become stuck again unless the problem is identified and resolved. Also look for a broken spring or cracked gear (missing teeth) in the eject mechanism. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance Good luck! - Jim

The mechanism got stuck. Open the cassette compartment screws and apply external DC to the Power input and eject the tape. If this is not possible refer to a skilled technician. If you need the service manuals and mechanism for replacement write to us.
