The tape is not being taken up quickly enough by the reel spool & therefore leaving "slack" on the tape which catches when you eject it. The problem will be with the clutch mechanism which sits between the two tape spools on the deck mechanism. Either it will need a clean or to be replaced.

SOURCE: VCR tape won't eject

The flap on the door stays open until the tape is ejected. There are two possible ways to remove the tape. First, with the power off, try to locate the drive pulley or gear on the side of the tape housing. It may be possible to turn it with your finger and cause the tape to eject. The eject mechanism will move VERY slowly when you use this technique.

The second way to do it should normally be done by an experienced technician, because it involves taking it even farther apart...and it may be difficult to reassemble. There are typically four screws that hold the tape mechanism in place...two near the top front and two near the back. It should be possible to remove those screws and pull the entire mechanism out of the VCR. Then you can more easily rotate the eject pulley (or gear) and remove the tape. If this sounds a little scary, I would definitely recommend placing the top back on and acting like nothing happened!

SOURCE: MAGNVOX MWR20V6 VCR WON,T ACCEPT TAPE EJECTS WONT LOAD UP

Hello alhertel,

The old idler wheel has been replaced with gears (cheaper and last longer then the old rubber wheel). What you need to do is to gain access to the loader motor and turn it until the carriage begins to move, once the carriage gets to the top and moves outward you should be able to eject the tape with no problem.

Believe it or not VCRs are throw away technology, since it costs as much to repair one as it does to buy a new one. However, there are a lot of people who still hold on to their VCRs.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

SOURCE: Panasonic 7350 VCR Keep ejecting tapes just seconds after loading

This happens when he strings are worn out or broken. It will not hurt to replace the strings of the VCR after some while.

SOURCE: 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.

VCR won't record, just ejects tape


You have not mentioned the make and model number of the vcr. Any way the problem is due to end sensor or related circuit. End sensors are photo diods which you can check the shorting with a multy meter.

Vhs is stuck in machine. Won't play and won't eject.


There are any number of reasons why it won't play. The loading basket is jammed, the video tape has got tangled up in the mechanical section of the vcr or the loading gears are stripped. Unplug machine and remove top, [screws side and back] if the tape is spewed carefully remove by cutting it and clean tape particles, for any other problem have a technician check it out.

Power goes off when a cassette is inserted. Tried cleaning heads but it won't even run that. When power is turned back on the cassette is immediately ejected.


Good day!!!

Most common problems
  • VCR refuses to FF or REW and shuts off.
  • VCR shuts off entering PLAY or REC or at random during PLAY or REC.
  • VCR eats tapes.
  • VCR doesn't accept tapes or ejects them without cause.
  • Sound is wavery, fluctuating, or muddy.
The cause for all of these is very often a bad idler tire or other dirty, worn, or tired rubber parts

If you have cleaned the head with a good head cleaner and you are still having a problem...the belt is probably worn. A good head clean should fix the problem.
