    There is no tape in the camera. It is stuck in play mode and will not stop unless you remove the power source.

    If it plays constantly when you turn it on, there is already a tape in it. You won't be able to insert a tape, until you eject the tape that's already in it.

Where is the rewind on this cassette player?


Cheap cassette players have no rewind feature. This allows the mechanism to be simpler and cheaper; they just 'pull' the tape forward constantly, without the pinch wheel for "fast" [sic] and with the pinch wheel for "play".

To work out if this is the problem with your cassette player, look inside with no cassette inserted. If one of the spindles is plain, without the "three-pronged" device to engage with the spool, then you have the cheap device with no rewind. Turn the tape over, and fast-forward.

How to Safely Clean a Tape Video Head


If you are not getting video from a VCR, 8MM camcorder, or Digital Video recorder camcorder but get audio, do the following: <br /> 1. Use a brand new tape - right out of the package and insert it into the drive. <br /> 2. Perform a record on the tape - set it to do a RECORD (not playback). <br /> 3. Allow it to complete through the entire tape without stopping. <br /> 4. Upon completion - allow it to rewind. <br /> 5. Insert a known good prerecorded tape and play - observe the image. If it's good, then the head was just dirty and is now clean. <br /> You may perform the above as often as necessary without any damage to the device.

I constantly get this message-"re-insert


No. The timing cam is misaligned. The carriage is suppose to accept the tape, and when you close the door, it pulls the tape from the carriage towards the head and drive the take-up reel to the supply reel as the head reads or plays back the tape. If the timing cam is misaligned, it will not accept the tape and thus you get the error message.

VCR repeatedly tries to play and eject when tape deck is empty


the tape carriage is probably stuck, or something stuck inside blocking the tape sensor.
feed a tape in and see if it does it "with" the tape too

hope this helps

Cassette Recorder play problem


Sounds like the tape tension sensor is stuck. The sensor is always telling the mechanism that the tape has reached the end.
