Unplug the VCR, take the cover off, find the motor (probably on the right side of the mechanism) and turn it's 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!

Vcr shuts off when i put in the tape


This means the system detected a fault and shut down to protect the tape. Have you tried another tape? Probably needs servicing - hard or cracked rubber belts or idler tyre, or a seized arm due to lubrication drying up or becoming sticky.

VCR tape won't eject


Hello,

The reason your tape wont eject is either because, it is stuck or the tape run loose inside of it.

To remove the tape, unplug the VCR, then unscrew it open, you will have direct access to the tape, so try to plug it back and press eject, when it gets stuck, apply a little force in pushing the tape up, to the height where it is to pass out, and it will eject your tape.

If you are not familiar with such activities, i will advice you get a repairman to get this done for you, in order for you not to damage any other part inside the VCR.

Take cacre and good luck

I have a VCR tape stuck in an old machine is there a trick to getting it out? It doesn't release it from the internal mechanisms! want the movie back!


I've had this happen to me a few times. The only way I could get the tape out was to take the VCR apart and carefully pull the tape out of the mechanism and all the tape that had pulled out of the cassette into the machine had to be carefully rewound back into the cassette. The tape itself is usually folded into many folds - so the movie needs to be copied as soon as possible onto a new cassette; as it won't play too many times with all the folds before getting stuck again into the VCR.

There is a little button near the door on the side of cassette itself that will allow you to open the door and rewind the tape easier.

Samsung v7000 DVD/VCR .....VCR ejects tape when record is pressed


Does this happen with other tapes? If so then the micro switch could be stuck in the open position, try to give it a clean with a blast of air duster first then check the contacts on the switch. If it is happening with just this specific tape the the record tab (although in place) may be "soft" try putting a piece of tape tightly across the tab & try to record.

Tape stuck in VCR, won't eject.


you posted 2 different problems here...
to answer this one ". The tape is stuck, won't eject and I'd like to get it out without damaging the VCR unit."...open unit, find motor that moves tape ejector and spin that motor by hand (power off)

the other problem, "the VCR will not insert a tape. It keeps rejecting it."...open unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.

You might have to take the VCR apart. Depending on how old the model is, you might just need a simple Phillips Screwdriver to open it. After you open it there should be a shielding case or something to keep static from disrupting the reader head. After you take the shielding off you should be able to see where the tape is stuck and you can pry it that way. Then put the thing back together.

At least that's how the old models do it. The new ones might be a little hard to get into.

Good luck.
