    The machine is chewing up tapes, I opened it up and watch from above, it seems the tape doesn't recede back into the tape when it is stopped. Also when I press record, it ejects the tapes 90% of the times and the tape is caught inside....



    It is very frustrating, I have tried new tapes, just in case but to no avail.



    I can see the reply from the previous person, very negative, I could just go buy a new VCR, cost is irrelevant, but I have had this VCR for years and it was serving me well til now. I would prefer to fix it than buying a new one as it is likely I will buy a hard drive/dvd player next.





    help please, thank you

Cannot play a VHS tape. Push in and pops out.


The belt on the loader motor is slipping. This causes the tape to not completely position itself to allow the tape to load around the drum. The machine senses this and ejects the tape.

A vhf tape got stuck in the machine. I could see the tape itself was caught on some moving prongs. now i don't know the proper setting for the prongs and cannot get any vhs tapes to play.


Hi, if VHS tape is in you have only one solution..to disassemble DVD/VCR ..Can you do it ? you may try !!t
Here's how to do it..
* 1 Turn off the COMBO. and unplug it.
* 2 Remove the 4x screws off COMBO on the sides and take off the DVD/VCR casing.
* 3 Look for the Tape which messed up with VCR transport mechanism ,try to release tape of the transport with your hand..
* 4 Since EJECT feature works with power only ,while you keep the tape off from transport plug the device to power and turn it on..Don't worry,you will see the eject mechanism starts moving back on forth,keep the tape off it and let it eject..
* 5.When tape is out .If it destroyed badly normally you should not use it however if the recording in is valuable for you you can cut the chewed portion and
splice it back together .(Pls see the video included...How to fix a broken VHS tape.)
* 6 While it is open,place another Tape to see if mechanism works properly. and eject it...
* 7 Replace the casing and the screws. Plug the player in and turn it on. Now player is finally working ..
Hope this helps!..
Take care and please

Tape loaded normally but now won't eject. The unit just powers off after a few seconds.


Unplug the power from the combo unit and give it 30 seconds, now plug back in, sometimes this will eject the tape, if not! take the top off the machine and check to see if the tape is spewed in the mechanical section and around the video head, if yes! get a pair of scissors and cut the tape carefully to avoid damaging the video head and remove all tape deb-ri, now power up and eject the main cassette. But! if you find the cassette has loaded in place and the tape is still in the vhs cassette, this would indicate a loading problem with the main carriage, broken belt, bad idler assembly and possibly sensor issues.

VCR tape stuck in machine


This could be a loading basket issue, or the tape has become tangled in the machine. Unplug the vcr, remove the top cover, if you see tape spewed in the mechanical section, plug the power and turn on, now try eject! if you see the tape pulling disconnect power and cut the tape with scissors and remove all the bits and pieces carefully not to damage the video head. If luck is with us the machine hopefully will eject the main cassette. If the tape is not the problem it is a loading issue, probably will need a technician.

When I try dubbing from VCR to DVD the machine will only record about half of the VHS to the DVD. I get the following message...Recording Error - this program is not allowed to be recorded. The cause...


The DVD AGG (automatic gain control) is somehow being fooled into thinking the non-commercial tape has macrovision (copy protection). Is this a relatively inexpensive machine?

Sony combi dvd / video player . 4 years old. tapes not playing and when ejected the tape is caught up in the machine.


The usual problem with these machine is the take up clutch situated in the middle of the reels and underneath. The nylon gears split in the centre causing the outer to jam it really is a job for a technician.

Eats tapes


When a VCR eats a tape, it can be cause by a couple things.

1. There is a rubber wheel called a "pincher wheel" that compresses the tape against the "capstan". The capstan is a shiny metal spindle connected to a motor. The pincher wheel can become worn and/or dirty (slick) from the oxide coating off of the tape. You can try cleaning the pincher wheel and capstan with alcohol or try using a re-grip solution on the pincher wheel. Last thing to do is replace the pincher wheel. Look to see that the pincher wheel is doing its job by pulling the tape through. The pincher wheel & capstan are not used during a fast forward or fast rewind, so if your tape is getting caught during the FF or RW and not Play, it's probably not related to capstan & pincher wheel.

2. There is a small tire wheel called an idler tire. This tire pivots between the sending and pickup reels of the player. Its also used during fast forward & rewind as well as play. If the tire is worn, the tape won't be wound up as fast on the take-up reel as the sending reel during play. This means more tape is coming out of the cassette than can be wound up on the takeup reel. You can try using a re-grip solution on the idler tire or replace it.
3. You didn't say if the unit played ok. There's also a brake pad that is designed to grab and stop the tape wheels from spinning when you hit stop. If those pads are worn, the wheels will not stop fast enough and the tape will continue to feed (spool) out of the cassette and not be taken up by the other wheel.

So when when you hit eject, the excess tape that should have been wound up tight in the cassette before the eject sequence, is getting caught inside the player.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
