    No, sorry, the problem is electronic in nature.
    The obvious things you suggest were the first I went to.
    the machine is a customers, I received it with a tape stuck in.
    I disconnected the motor , & powered it up to remove the tape,
    There was no sign of damage or bits jamming the mechanism.
    The servo IC which Drives the VCR Head & the load/ unload motor is an LB11883N.
    I was hoping someone there would know if this was a typicl problem on this model.
    Thanks, M Carter RESTORATION

Look inside with a flashlight and look for any obstructions in the tape cavity, like cookies, pb&j sandwiches, army men, etc...

If no obstuctions look for broken plastic guides/levers etc...

You could always carefully open it up and see if you can't watch it load a tape to see if it is doing everything it should but that could be dangerous because of the voltages present in the TV. Would probably be best for a repair person.

Also sounds like the machine does not know there is a tape there, there should be a lever that gets pushed by the tape to trigger the sensor or switch that tells the machine there is a tape in the cavity, maybe it's stuck or broken, you would have to investigate.

Given the price of these times of combo machines these days, probably not worth getting it fixed, would probably cost more than a new one.

Good Luck!

Tape did not eject

if the tape can not eject by press the button, you can only unload it manually, but you'd better ask an expert to do it, such as me, haha.

There is a small CAM under the foward\reverse takeup wheel. Like a combination lock, must be set in proper sequence to send a signal to eject or load tape. Panasonic VCR has them also.
Hope that this helps, Buddy
P.S. The motor\rubber assembly MUST be set in such a way that the "end of Rubber band line" reaches a certin point WITHOUT turning any more then neccessary because it wll through the switch off aligement.
The LED that the VHS tape covers when it comes down on top of and covers it will give the same problem when it is " caca ".

Jvc-avx1 wont eject

Try to power down the unit and the power it back up then press the eject button. If this does not work there might be a hole in the front of the unit which you could insert a paper clip which will actuate a mechanical release switch.The last thing you can try is to open up the unit and manually rotate the load and unload motor and this will eject the DVD. Restore the cover and then start up the unit to see if things are ok.
