Tape is stuck in vcr


Someone will have to take it apart---usually it is a problem with the mechanism that loads/unloads the tape or the transport mechanism that moves the tape---the latter winds the tape back into the cassette and if fails it will hang up and or mangle the tape.

My VCR/DVD combo wont play a VHS tape when inserted. Each time I insert a VHS tape, it shoots it right back out and sometimes unravels the tape around the apparatuses inside the VCR. It won't reco


the tape coming back out and unravels the tape means the loading mechanism is the problem----when a tape goes in it loads the tape down, then it pulls the tape out of the cassette and puts it up against the drum with the video heads-----many of these are belt driven and a bad belt or belts will cause this----it is called the loading and or transport mechanism.......when it fails the arms come back but the tape does not get rewound back into the cassette so it mangles it when the cassette door on the tape closes----most likely a belt or the drive idler which also rewinds and fast forwards the tape.

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.

The VHS tape will not stay in the VCR - I have read the whole manual and can't seem to fix the problem. When it is put in, it immediately comes back out? Help!!


Remove the top cover & have a look at the deck mechanism. If there have been children in the house there may be an object lying inside obstructing the tape. If this is clear, watch carefully to see if the tape drops down into the deck mechanism, possibly the tape flap is not being raised or one of the guide arms on the deck maybe damaged or broken which stops the cassette from dropping into the mechanism. If the cassette drops down ok, does the tape then start to be pulled out of the cassette by the guide arms?

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.

Tape Transport


Be sure that whoever is replacing the elevator assembly ( transport module ) is putting in a NEW part and not an old part that is still works.

I would start doing this repair yourself... there are only:

4 screws

and

2 cables: one that powers the cassette load\unload motor
and the other is the tape sensors cable

once you pull the cover

they are very small phillips head screws: you NEED a very good, long, small Magnetic tip screwdriver.

Tthere is a manual screw drive near the loader \ unloader motor: it has a Red plastic phillips head drive screw.
This manually moves the Loader assy in and out: you will need to move it to uncover the two screws that are near the front of the machine.

when you find these screws: its a good idea to mark them with a red Sharpie, for easy finding next time..


If the machine is getting heavy use, then 5 months may not be that bad, if the machine is babied should last alot longer.

either way you can get a handle on the situation and save youself some money by bringing this particular service 'In House'


I did this fix last week on this unit.
it took me 15 minutes.

VCR kicks out cassettes


Sounds as if something got bent in the loading mechanism when you freed the stuck tape. Careful examination of the loading operation with the cover off may reveal the problem, but you may require a service shop, as there are hazardous voltages present inside, even when switched off.

Cassette loading process won't complete


This is a problem with the process called 'tape loading' - pulling the tape loop out of the cassette and wrapping it around the spinning video drum, engaging the capstan and pinch roller and reel rotation. If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the VCR and Check all the belts above and below the deck. Belts can appear to be firm but if they do not return immediately to their relaxed length when you stretch them 25%, they will need to be replaced. With the cover off, observe the behavior when you hit play. (You may need to put a piece of cardboard over the cassette to block external light from interfering with the start/end tape sensors). Assuming this is a basic VCR (no instant start features), you should see: 1. The video head drum begins to spin. 2. the roller guides move smoothly on the tracks, wind the tape around the drum, and stop snuggly pressed against the 'V-stopper' at the end of the tracks. 3. The pinch roller moves into position and presses the tape against the capstan. 4. The tape begins to move and is wound up by the takeup reel. 5. The picture and sound appear on the TV. With a 'rapid or quick start' (or it may be called something else) transport, the tape moves to a half-loaded position when the cassette is inserted. This is at an intermediate position partially pulled out of the cassette but not wrapped around the drum. On VCRs with a real-time counter and/or index search capabilities, the tape will be in contact with the control head. With an 'instant start' transport, the tape will fully load around the spinning drum when the cassette is inserted but the capstan will not engage and no tension will be applied to the tape until you press PLAY or REC. (After about 5 minutes, the drum will stop and it may unload to the half loaded or unloaded position.) Note that for VCRs with a real-time counter and/or index search capabilities, the tape must be in contact with the control head (but not the video heads) for all relevant modes. These VCRs (which include many modern units) must therefore pull the tape at least partly out of the cassette. In all cases, the completion of the sequence results in approximately the same mechanical configuration during PLAY.

These VCRs (which include many modern units) must therefore pull the tape at least partly out of the cassette. In all cases, the completion of the sequence results in approximately the same mechanical configuration during PLAY. Several likely possibilities when it shuts down: 1. Everything occurs as above, picture and sound appear for a few seconds, but then the VCR unloads the tape, ejects the cassette, goes into REW mode, stops, or shuts off. Two common causes: The takeup reel does not turn and tape spills into the machine. This is sensed by the microcontroller which aborts record or play and attempts to save your valuable cassette. Most likely cause: old/dirty idler tire. As a test, turn the idler tire inside-out. The fresh surface will now work well enough to confirm this diagnosis and will continue working long enough for your replacement idler tire to arrive. See the section: "General guide to VCR cleaning and rubber parts replacement". The takeup reel is turning properly but one of the reel The takeup reel is turning properly but one of the reel rotation sensors or its electronics is defective. As a test, check to see if the tape counter is changing at any time during the loading and
