    the inside of the deck is clean but how can you tell if the gearing is out of time? Can you wind the gearing by hand to reset it. Also, it doesn't matter what cassette is used.

Very often caused by a slipping or broken loading motor belt. Loading motor will unwind the tape and wrap the tape around head. Won't load, so it spits back out.

The VCR is detecting something it doesn't like. Could be a foreign object inside, or the gearing out of time or ... Take the cover off and watch it as it loads and you'll probably figure out why.

Tape loaded normally but now won't eject. The unit just powers off after a few seconds.


Unplug the power from the combo unit and give it 30 seconds, now plug back in, sometimes this will eject the tape, if not! take the top off the machine and check to see if the tape is spewed in the mechanical section and around the video head, if yes! get a pair of scissors and cut the tape carefully to avoid damaging the video head and remove all tape deb-ri, now power up and eject the main cassette. But! if you find the cassette has loaded in place and the tape is still in the vhs cassette, this would indicate a loading problem with the main carriage, broken belt, bad idler assembly and possibly sensor issues.

Sony SLV-940HF automatically ejects tape.


1st try a different tape.
If it's the same, listen carefully for unusual noises, clunks, grinding, etc. when the tape goes in. Is something binding?

With the tape out, look inside the door, see if you can spot anything in there that shouldnt be there such as a small toy, money, playing card, sandwich, bits of food? Those are the usuals.

Turn the vcr upside down and holding the tape door open, tilt it so if there was a foreign object in there, it would fall out.

SLV 940 HF


Is it having trouble either loading or ejecting the tape? If so, then something is probably awry in that mechanism. Take the top cover off and watch a load or eject operation. If tape isn't fully loaded, and tape threaded, then an error condition will result, as will be the case if it won't eject. Causes include a broken piece of the load mechanism (also called cassette carriage or carriage mechanism), broken or cracked gear. If the mechanism is gear driven, timing is critical, just being out of time one tooth will foul things up. There are often marks on the gears which must line up exactly in a particular mode as specified in manufacturer service literature. Most VCRs since the early '90s are disposeable, very prone to breakage, in contrast to early units which were made like tanks, costing $400 plus.
