    Have a close look, the tape may have not fully come back into the cassette and is catching on one of the mechanisms inside the door.

As Mark correctly points out the tape has probably got caught in the mechanism, If its not coming free, cut the tape, Its damaged anyway and shouldn't be used. and it should slip out of the camera easily, Just pulling it may cause expensive damage to the heads.

Also be consider it may happen again as this will happen if the take up clutch is worn or there is something sticky got into the mechanism off a tape or through spillage, it would be wise to get the camera serviced or at least use a unimportant tape to thoroughly test the camera before using again.

if you decide to test...
Look through the tape window you may see that the right hand spool isn't turning, the most likely problem is the idler assembly or take up clutch needs replacing.

But if the take up spool is going backwards there may be something sticky on the capstan or pinch roller, cleaning both with isopropyl alcohol (as a cleaning tape wont work) should help but I would recommend having the whole tape path cleaned, this will involve removing the cameras cover
post a note if you MUST recover the recording, its possible but not recommended and must be done with great care

Tape is stuck in the deck won't eject is there any code to force an eject?


Stuck cassettes are typically mechanical. You may have to start pulling it apart to get to the problem.

Tape In light flashes every ~0.8 seconds even though no tape in there.


You have got yourself into a tricky mess there. The mechanism was set up in a certain way. When you extracted the tape, it sent the mechanism into the wrong position. There is also a switch called a mode switch that is linked to the mechanism and the electronics of the video. This switch tells the electronics what mode the video is in - IE: fast forward etc. This is now out of position and the whole mechanism needs to be set up in the correct position, assuming there is no faults, and so does the mode switch.
However the bad news is that unless you have the service manual you have little chance of setting it up right. Most video's for example are NOT set up in the eject position for a start, so unless you have the instructions, you will never get it to work right.

Have MAG TV model CT270MW8 27 inch that wont stay on unless a VHS tape is in and then only if VHS player ejects it (automatically) and then reiserts itself. The tape then/must stay in


You have a mechanism problem in the player---it has two sensors in the tray and they detect the tape is in and load it.

If the unit was working it will each time turned on cycle the mechanism to see that it functions--shutdown if not functioning correctly.

I have a cd stuck in my cd player and can not get it out i have a 2003 e class merc


FIRST Reduce electrocution risk by disconnecting all power supplies from the CD player and make sure any electrical charge has been removed.

Method 1

Take a blank/useless CD (such as AOL free trial CD's, you can get them in a plethora of amounts in Best Buy) and place it about 1 inch deep into the slot
.

Press the 'Eject' button and gently wiggle the CD around. If this doesn't work, repeat and try to get the blank CD below the the jammed CD, and gently pry the target CD upwards.

Method 2

Get a 1 inch to 2 inch wide putty knife and wrap tape around it with the sticky side of the tape on the outside of the knife. Use a strong tape like Gorilla tape for best results. The knife is typically tapered so that if you wrap the tape tight enough it will not slide off the end

Get a piece of paper and stick it to one side of the knife. Trim with scissors. You now have a thin sticky knife you can slide into the CD player opening

Insert knife into CD player with sticky side down trying to get it to go on top of the CD that is stuck. Press down gently to get the tape to stick to the CD.

Gently lift up and pull the knife out. Hopefully the CD will come with it. You might try hitting the eject button if it doesn't work the first time.

Method 3

Get a stiff plastic "card" - like a drivers license but a bit thinner. Put double-sided scotch tape on one side of the card, near the edge of one of the two narrow ends of the card.

Get a thin-stemmed flat head screwdriver (short is better).With the sticky side of the card facing down, stick it into the **** ABOVE the stuck CD. You may have to use the screwdriver to ensure the card goes in above the CD and does not stick to the CD until after you get 1/2 to 3/4 inch of the card in above the CD.

With the card still in there, insert the thin flat screwdriver ON TOP of the card and gently press down on the card. This causes the tape on the bottom side of the card to stick to the top side of the stuck CD.Remove the screwdriver and then slowly pull the card out. The CD should come with the card.

I have a VCR tape stuck in an old machine is there a trick to getting it out? It doesn't release it from the internal mechanisms! want the movie back!


I've had this happen to me a few times. The only way I could get the tape out was to take the VCR apart and carefully pull the tape out of the mechanism and all the tape that had pulled out of the cassette into the machine had to be carefully rewound back into the cassette. The tape itself is usually folded into many folds - so the movie needs to be copied as soon as possible onto a new cassette; as it won't play too many times with all the folds before getting stuck again into the VCR.

There is a little button near the door on the side of cassette itself that will allow you to open the door and rewind the tape easier.

Cd stuck in the player


You can use another old CD and some very sticky tape (like duct tape).Take a peice of tape about 2 inches long.Fold it so it's half the lenth and sticky on both sides.Adhere it to the end of the old CD so its flat and will adhere to the other stuck CD.Slide the old CD w/the tape on it(aimed down) in the CD slot and while pressing the eject button and adhere it to the stuck CD and pull.It should stick to the other CD and dislodge it

VCR won't eject tape - timing of loading mechanism is off


Now-a-days most of the gears are made out of plastic(HDPE, if I remember correctly), when the rewinding command is given even if one gear tooth is worn/broken it will throw the entire timing out of 'gear'. Since the problem has already occurred, and, this is the only function that has malfunctioned my advice would be to leave it as it is! ('cos repairing/replacing it is manual & therefore a costly affair plus there is no guarantee that the replacedment will function properly)....sodeep
