    Thanks VCR777 for your input.


    Unfortunately mine is a Sony and the situation is a bit different.
    The tape is fixed in a bracket (which moves up and - apparently - pushes the tape out) and that won't operate at all.
    Also the tape is still fed around the various parts (capstan etc).
    -Cheers, Jim.

I had a similar problem with a Panasonic VCR. It would not eject the tape and gave an error code. I found that the door does not quite fully open, so that the top of the tape hits the door and cannot eject. If I turn off and then turn on the VCR the error code disappears. Then I press the eject button and simultaneously hold the door fully open with one finger until the tape starts to eject and clears the door.

Sony SLV-640HF VHS VCR ejects any tape after a couple of seconds


While the tape may appear to be loading properly, it is not. These units have a known problem with the grease at the loading arm getting sticky. This means that the tape is not loaded properly and will not move through the VCR properly. This is detected as the hubs not moving and the unit will eject the tape to prevent damage. This is a simple repair for anyone that has done these before, but requires an alignment check. This check requires a special alignment tape and equipment.

This should be a labor only repair.

Sony SLV-N60 stopped playing suddenly


Sounds like you have a head-clog. You can purchase a VHS Head Cleaner at Radio Shack for $5.00. If that doesn't work repairing your VCR is not cost effective when you consider that you can purchase a new VHS/DVD combo deck for under $125.00

VCR keeps ejecting the tape


It needs Belts/Idler/Pinch roller.. If you UNPLUG IT, remove the cover you can wind the tape back manually....When you can get a DVD player.

SLV-660HV Will not load


If you removed the tape carriage assembly, gear timing is probably off, assuming it is gear driven. Being one tooth off will prevent things from working properly. Gears will often have a mark (like an arrow or dot) which must be lined up with each other, in a mode specified in manufacturer service literature. Another possibility is sensors. There are sensors (usually optical) which tell the logic when the tape is properly loaded. If one of these is broken, or otherwise non-functional, logic circuitry will go into error mode, and, in this case, eject tape & display an error code. Lastly, check your mode switch. This tells the logic what position the mechanicals are in (gears/levers/slides). Again, if this is awry, you will have an error condition.
