Re: video cassette

Just the usual problem of needing the rubber belts replaced.
Take the top cover off and watch the mechanism move, usually you can see what the problem is if you get to know its motion. Best if you learn this before it develops a problem of course.
Buy a kit of belts for your model from all kinds of sites on the net and install them yourself if you are handy with delicate mechanisms.

Aiwa manual

I have never heard of any mechanism on a video recorder that would cause the video to eject when a cover is removed. The only thing that might cause it would either be a fault, or something to do with the front facia panel engaging the eject switch when being disassembled.

Tape isn't retracted into cassette upon eject on Sony EV-C100

l would sacrifice a old or bad tape here, remove all the tape inside a cassette and tape off the small sensor holes on each side.

That way no tape to damage and you can insert it to see what is happening.

What likely is the issue is when stop it, it or if the tape does not fully load against the drum with heads, when the arms retract that pull the tape out of the cassette the mechanism is not switching to rewind it back into the cassette.

Usually this means a belt is slipping or the idler unit is not working---belts can break or stretch or even come off---belts will get slopply or bad from NO use and it is common.

Mitsubishi VCR Model HS-821V Ejects Video Cassette & gives an error code E4

Sometimes things like that are caused by the mode switch which will either need to be cleaned or replaced. It's worth looking inside for damage inside the unit. Pay close attention to plastic 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.

Inserted cassette doesn't play and immediately ejects

Could be a mode switch problem, you could try Servisol video 40 on the switch, or it might need replacement.

Most VCR's will auto-rewind the tape when it gets to the end of a tape. Most will leave the tape in the unit assuming you may wish to view it again once rewound. Does the tape eject properly when you press the eject button? What does the manula say about the eject function?

Tape keeps ejecting - panasonic nvfj620

Is it only the Head cleaning cassette which keeps getting ejected, or is it happening with every tape you insert? Was the Head Cleaning Tape a little tight in the Cassette compartment? Did you have to put some pressure to push it in or did it come out with difficulty? From your symptoms, it looks like there is a gear timing problem with the cassette loading compartment gears. It could also be due to some obstruction inside. try shaking the VCR, and if you are hearing some noise, Open cover and check for foreign objects.
