Excess tape slack and the drives are not able to correct due to age/ lack of service. See if you can get the cover off and verify that the machine is at least trying to shuttle the tape. If that's the case, the idlers need to be replaced...accordianman

Unplug the TVCR, take the cover off, find the motor (probably on the right side of the mechanism) and turn its shaft with your fingers until you have run the tape back out. Now plug it back in and try it again with a scarificial tape. If it continues to fail, replace all the rubber belts in the mechanism.
Hope ya fix it!

When a tape won't eject, the problem can be caused by several things. The most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the tape. This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution on the belt or have the belt replaced. Another possibility is that the tape is caught aroung the spindle guides that pull the tape around the video head. If the tape is caught in the spindles, this will affect playback performance. The heads could be dirty too. Another possibility for poor playback is a slipping idler wheel. The idler wheel is a rubber tire that pivits between the tape sending and pickup reels. It's a key part during playback, fast forward & rewind. The idler tire can also be treated with a re-grip solution or be replaced. Belts are inexpensive but sometimes difficult to get to. Most of the repair expense will be in the labor.

SOURCE: How can I remove a stuck video tape from out of a VCR?

You will have to take the cover off. ( un-plug the AC cord)
Look for the loading motor at the back right side.
Rotate the motor and you will see the tray moving thru its cycle to un-load the tape, it does take quite a few turns, its slow.
Let me know if you run into a problem?

Video cassette stuck in machine


That model uses either the K Deck or G Deck, I can't remember which, but I have both service manuals on my blog (free), so you can download both. I think it should explain have to remove the stuck tape.

Videotape dubbing deck dead


Hi,

1. Check to see if a tape is jammed inside (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape).
2. Try changing the video input and/or output source. Many VCRs have two ways to receive and send a video signal (coaxial and video direct). If that works, try changing the cable for the other method to see whether you need a new cable.
3. Clean tape heads (see How to Clean VCR Heads).
4. Open VCR and inspect any belts that are accessible (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape). A drive belt may be broken or loose.


If tapes are getting stuck / enmeshed inside the machine, itis 90% probability) a mechanical problem. Change the Belts, clean all rollers, idlers, and braking pads.
I would suggest that you also replace the Capstan Pinch Roller.

Goodluck..

Tape is locked in Sharp VCR


take the case off and see if the tape is stuck around anything. if not, remove the tape deck very carefully (make sure it is unplugged first). you should be able to remove the tape fairly easy. the tape may be wrapped around something inside of the deck there, or the loading gears could be out of synch. and if it happens again you might consider getting a new vcr because to replace a new loading deck is cost prohibitive because vcr's are so cheap now.

Neither deck will open to insert tapes in my dual deck vcr


It seems they didnt refirbish it, you should return it..

If for some reason you cant return it.

The problem is your carriage unit is damaged
The carriage unit is the parts that load the tape into the vcr
If you think you are able you can open it up and look if any springs have fallen out. If not then change the unit.

If you cant fix it your self a technician can easily do it for you since it isnt that hard and somplicated to repair, you just need good retainence

check the drive belt - it's probably stretched and won't operate the mechanism to eject the tape.

Putting main deck line cover back on inside vcr


this sounds like the carriage tray, it's the metal plate that the vcr slides in and out. It should have a door on the front side and it may have at least 2 screws and sometimes four. The only problem is aligning up the tray to be exact. in the power on mode the vcr tray should be pushed outward like the tape is sticking partly out of set.
