Tape ejection malfunction

Everything works just fine, but when pushing the "eject" to release a vhs tape, the tape gets hung up inside the unit. I have 3 different vcr with the same malfunction, so it appears this is a common problem. Any suggestions or possible solutions? Thanks.

The problem may very well be a slipping spool idler that does not tension the tape properly when trying to eject. Try cleaning the rubber friction surfaces or replacing the part....accordianman

Hi there.
Sometimes a gentle slap with the palm of your hand with the door facing towards the ground does the trick, make sure you power it off then on press eject while you gently slap it.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Tape keeps getting ejected


This unit requires the rubber parts to be replaced. The loading sequence is not completing properly. The VCR will eject the tape when the sequence fails as a safety measure to prevent damage to either the VCR or the tape.

Parts cost for this should not be more than $10.

VCR ejects blank tape only


It sounds like the cassette is not releasing the tape so the machine can put it around the heads. This could damage the machine. Don't use it. A two dollar tape is not worth damaging your vcr. Throw it away.

Vhs eject will not release tape.


I had a suggestion that did work. Reach into the VHS compartment with left hand and press down toward the back of the tape. With the right hand press the eject button a few times and the tape did come out. I would not buy a Samsung product again. No help from their 800 tech support. No more playing the VHS side of the player. Lynn

Tape door won't open on eject?


Many times I've heard my tape will not eject,most of the time unpluging the unit from the wall for about 10 minutes and then plug it back in,this resets the microprocessor and it goes bak to normal and the tape ejects.I hope it works. Please rate this solution if it does.
