Lg v181 combo problem with vcr keeps ejecting tapes when I want to record.
Hi, Ive had this combo for just over a year. It keeps ejecting the vhs tapes. Very rarely can I tape a show because of this. Doesnt matter if I pre program the machine or just press record.I have tried new vhs tapes, older ones. Cleaned the heads with commercial brand cleaner. DVD side of it plays well. Anyone got any clues?

You can only compensate for minor scratches. As for the vcr side the rollers could be dirty or the brake worn out. The tensioner may be too sensitive as well. Basically the mechanism probably needs servicing.
All American VHS recordings will be in NTSC system. If your player is compactable with NTSC system, you can play the VHS in your system. If it has no NTSC syste, the tape will play, but colour problems and vertical rolling will occur. OK.
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!..
