Question about GE VG4267 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Tape is stuck and I don't know how to get it out.

I removed the top and a bunch of screws but can't get the cassette carriage out. Fix-it tells me that I need to do this to get the tape out but the directions are for a VG4259.

Another way to eject tape is to turn the eject motor by hand in the direction that ejects the tape.

Tape will not load


Assuming that it's not damaged. The carriage might be out of it's correct position to load the tapes. You need to be certain that it is set up right and not damage. This might require a service manual.

A cassette has jammed inside my vcr machine. It will not move forward or backward Can yoy please help


Hello,

Since the tape won't come out then it means you will have to manually remove the stuck tape. This involves you disassembling the unit in order to help/assist the player get the stuck tape out.

Turn of the unit and remove from the wall, get a Philip screw driver, use it to remove all the screws from the unit and take it apart.

Open the cover and you will see the stuck tape and what's hooking or preventing it from coming out/ejecting.

Now plug the unit, and turn it on. Press the eject button, as the tape tries to come out, support it with your hand so that it can come out.

Or if it happen that the cassette tape has coiled inside the unit, carefully free the coiled tape and the press the eject button.

Lastly, the moment you disassemble the player, you would see what's preventing it from coming out, then you can free whatsoever that is making it stuck press the eject button and the tape should come out.

Make sure the unit is turned off each time you want to remove what's making the cassette stuck.

I hope understand the above explanations.

Good luck.

Tape cassette stuck after rewinding. Will not eject.


This happened to me with a Sanyo model but I believe this may be a universal solution.
Remove the top cover and the front panel.
The tape is held in a basket held down by 2 (only) screws toward the back end of the basket. Unscrew the two screws. Wiggle the basket out. The tape should come out with it.
Turn the basket upside down and the tape should slide out, because it is now not being obstructed by mechanical stuff that was holding it in while it was screwed onto the base.
Reassemble. Good luck!

CASSETTE STUCK IN VCR WONT EJECT I TURN VCR ON IT STAYS


When the tape has been removed the carriage deck will still be in the wrong position. The cassette tray has to be aligned so that the timing of the tape will detect that there is a tape in the machine. At the moment your VCR thinks there is a tape still in it because the cassette tray is not in the full eject position. This can be fixed by a service technician.

Can't move cassette carriage.


hello savvychris

If you can not get to the carriage motor, can you get to the one of the gears attached to the motor or the carriage gear itself. either of these should allow you to release the carriage.

Can you post some pictures of the carriage, this includes front, top, and side shots? what I am looking for is a way to advance the main motor forwards and thus release the carriage locking system.

If possible, if you have the technical documentation, send me a copy of it, I might be able to figure out what is going on for them.

Thank you,

Tape stuck in VCR


First locate the load and unload motor, it is the one with the rubber drive band. release the drive band and rotate the gear to raise and pull the carriage back into position.
This should remove your cassette, and put the carriage back into position.

Stuck tape


If you haven't already done so, don't get overly forceful to avoid bending or breaking something. Often the cassette carriage mechanism is gear driven, and by moving the gear one direction or the other will unload the tape. You may need to disassemble the machine further to gain access to the drive mechanisim. Sometimes the carriage mech. can be entirely removed from the VCR by removing the attachment screws. Other times, these screws are made inaccessible by the tape itself. Look down on the right side of the carriage. If you do remove the carriage, mark the gear positioning first! as the gears must be positioned back exactly as they were from the manufacturer. You might need to employ the services of a technician if things are complicated.
