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!

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.

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.

Vhs is stuck in machine. Won't play and won't eject.


There are any number of reasons why it won't play. The loading basket is jammed, the video tape has got tangled up in the mechanical section of the vcr or the loading gears are stripped. Unplug machine and remove top, [screws side and back] if the tape is spewed carefully remove by cutting it and clean tape particles, for any other problem have a technician check it out.

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC-48 and the tape door won't close along with a 32.11 error code.....HELP


Try these steps:

1. Open the tape cover fully until it clicks open.
2. Turn the camcorder on to "VCR Mode."
3. With the cover still open and the camera in "VCR mode," take out the battery.
4. Put the battery back in--out should pop your tape.

Keep us updated.

VCR tape stuck in VCR


One way is to take off the cover of the unit so that you can see where the tape is hung up and help push the tape out. (One of two problems are usually involved: the cassette cover isn't closing down evenly (a high corner blocking the travel path) or a loop of the tape blocking the cover closing.)

On my VCR unit it was ~4 screws on the back that held the cover in place. (That was VCR only. There might be a few more screws in the larger unit.)

I hope this helps.

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.

I think the problem with the tapes stopping is that there is too much tension on the tape. Try another VCR and try to see if you have the same problem playing the tape. Forward and reverse through the part that causes the player to stop. It is also possible that the tape inside the vcr has become twisted or stuck. One can fix this if they are very careful opening the video tape. However, I would not recommend this for most people

Vcr


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.
