Generally, you have to take off the cover, and find the motor that drives the cassette loading mechanism, then turn the motor shaft with your fingers (many many times) until the cassette is unloaded.
Usually the moter is easy to get at on top just to the right of the cassette mechanism. However sometimes it is underneath and you can only get at it by taking everything apart. Don't try this yourself and don't take the cassette carraige assembly apart trying to get at the cassette unless you don't plan on using this VCR again.

VHS cassette accepts and ejects with kir..r...r sound. I have removed the power cord (Power OFF) and cassette was inserted halfway and then plugged the power cord (Power ON). At this time the VCR ejects...

First of I think you have a K-Deck mechanism. If you do a Google search for "Panasonic K-Deck" you should find the free information. If you can't you will need to E-Mail me.
This sounds like a a timing problem, perhaps caused by some damage to the Cassette Holder. The mode switch could be part of the problem too. They are quite tricky to set up to get the timing right, I do know the Cassette has to be inside the machine to set it up. The good news is that parts are easy to get hold of, so if any thing is damaged it can be replaced. Curry's partmaster is a good place for parts.

I have a VCR Panasonic NV - FJ623 and when I insert a video cassette into it for playback or recording purposes,it always ejects the video cassette.Can you help, please?

I'ts likely that the record sensor that pushes on the tab on the tape is bent or broken. Making the VCR think you are trying to record on to a protected tape.

A cassette has jammed inside my vcr machine. It will not move forward or backward Can yoy please help


Since the tape won't come out then it means you will have to manually remove the stuck tape. This involves you disassembling the unit in order to help/assist the player get the stuck tape out.

Turn of the unit and remove from the wall, get a Philip screw driver, use it to remove all the screws from the unit and take it apart.

Open the cover and you will see the stuck tape and what's hooking or preventing it from coming out/ejecting.

Now plug the unit, and turn it on. Press the eject button, as the tape tries to come out, support it with your hand so that it can come out.

Or if it happen that the cassette tape has coiled inside the unit, carefully free the coiled tape and the press the eject button.

Lastly, the moment you disassemble the player, you would see what's preventing it from coming out, then you can free whatsoever that is making it stuck press the eject button and the tape should come out.

Make sure the unit is turned off each time you want to remove what's making the cassette stuck.

I hope understand the above explanations.

Good luck.

The vhs cassettes keep being ejected when put in the vhs player

Well the vcr might be broken for the part that allows the tape to sit in there or something is stuck inside of the vcr so it will need to be fixed.

Most Panasonic VCR use a mechanisms with a letter. For example the NV-HS900 uses a K Deck. What you need to do is type the model number into google and search for which deck it uses. Then with luck you might also find the instructions for setting the deck up correctly. I got the K-Deck one free.
