Best to take the unit to a shop. The unit can be taken apart and the tape removed manually.

Vhs tape is stuck and message reads "tape

Unplug the TV/VCR/DVD Combo from the main power for a couple of minutes, the unit may eject the tape at the power ON.
You can also try openening the unit, reset the loading posts and eject the tape by manually turning gears, motors etc..You have to know what you're doing otherwise, you will do more damage or get injured and don't forget HIGH VOLTAGE CAN KILL.

I have a vhs video cassette stuck inside my vhs. Is their any way I can get it out without breaking the vcr. It is an older vcr, but I would like to get my tape out.

You might be able to unbolt the two halves of the VCR to remove the tape, but it depends on the VCR type and how it's stuck. You might end up having to get it serviced, or just getting a new VCR, as I can almost guarantee the tape is probably damaged beyond recovery, unfortunately.

Tape got stuck now when trying to eject makes noise then turns off

Good day

Your tape break off inside VCR? Look for broken piece & remove (very carefully)!
RESIST all temptation to touch the drum head! They are very sensitive, & can be ruined easily.

If no broken tape inside, you may have a "broken tire"..a tape spool drive rubber ring.
It's repairable but best bet to find an electronics technician.

The trouble I really suspect is
The loading drawer! There are wee flimsy plastic gears that "pull" the tapes in etc,..they break,...not work after. Need to replace broken parts. Glue won't solve those for long...I've had short-term success.

I have a tape stuck in vcr ,big problem is, it is a tv with built in vcr and dvd player..any ideas or am I stuck with it?

This can be fixed by removing the screws off the back of the TV and removing the back panel. Be sure to have unit unplugged and to touch nothing else in the system other then what I mention. Doing so could send you on a flight across the room.
After you have the back off you will find something called the carriage this is the thing the tape will be sitting inside. To the left or right of the carriage you will find a really small hotdog shaped gear turning one way will force the tape further in turning it the other way to force the tape back out. be sure to assist any loose tape out so it does not get stuck on anything and jam/break something

You may contact me if you need further assistance

Tape stuck

If the tape is more important than the TV you could have it taken apart by a tv repair person.

Error message E4 and stuck tape

Yes with care. Simply remove the cover and with care unwrap the tape. If you must break the tape - but make sure all residual tape is cleanly removed. Re assemble and put a tape head cleaner through- following the instructions.

Tape stuck and tv turns off

With the set unplugged remove the back and extract the main board. You'll find a metal cover over the tape housing area that is easily removed by removing some screws holding it to the board area and manipulating some wired over it... You should then be able to see the tape and what's hanging it up. If you need to unwrap tape from the pinch roller or around the guides do so carefully. When it all looks free you can either manually crank the load motor assembly to eject the tape or put it back together enough to plug it in and press eject. If you do the later be VERY careful... Good Luck! Bill
