You might have to take the VCR apart. Depending on how old the model is, you might just need a simple Phillips Screwdriver to open it. After you open it there should be a shielding case or something to keep static from disrupting the reader head. After you take the shielding off you should be able to see where the tape is stuck and you can pry it that way. Then put the thing back together.

At least that's how the old models do it. The new ones might be a little hard to get into.

Good luck.

VCR tape won't eject


The reason your tape wont eject is either because, it is stuck or the tape run loose inside of it.

To remove the tape, unplug the VCR, then unscrew it open, you will have direct access to the tape, so try to plug it back and press eject, when it gets stuck, apply a little force in pushing the tape up, to the height where it is to pass out, and it will eject your tape.

If you are not familiar with such activities, i will advice you get a repairman to get this done for you, in order for you not to damage any other part inside the VCR.

Take cacre and good luck

VCR tape stuck in VCR

One way is to take off the cover of the unit so that you can see where the tape is hung up and help push the tape out. (One of two problems are usually involved: the cassette cover isn't closing down evenly (a high corner blocking the travel path) or a loop of the tape blocking the cover closing.)

On my VCR unit it was ~4 screws on the back that held the cover in place. (That was VCR only. There might be a few more screws in the larger unit.)

I hope this helps.

You will have to unplug the VCR and take it apart. You should be able to move the mchanism and/or door to free the tape.

Tape stuck in VCR

could be that you're looking at a blown cartridge for that vcr tape. You may need to cut the tape, to extract that from the unit.

The play head would usually retract when the cartridge is removed, BUT could be compromised by some tape getting into the play head mechanism, and jamming.

be particularly careful with anything pointy or sharp, as the tape head does NOT like those objects near the read surface.

Tape stuck in VCR, won't eject.

you posted 2 different problems here...
to answer this one ". The tape is stuck, won't eject and I'd like to get it out without damaging the VCR unit." unit, find motor that moves tape ejector and spin that motor by hand (power off)

the other problem, "the VCR will not insert a tape. It keeps rejecting it." unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.
