Question about Panasonic PV-C2010 20 in. TV/VCR Combo
A tape is stuck inside the vcr and will not eject when pushed. It will not go forward or backward. When the television is turned on a humming sound is heard for several seconds.
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 having the belt replaced. With the cover off (be careful not to touch anything live with power) and try loading and unloading a tape.
Try to find the motor and belt which operates the loading mechanism. Try moving the belt pulley with your finger to give it a little help and see if it continues on with the operation. If it does, the belt is probably slipping. It takes more effort on the belt & pulley during an eject sequence rather than the a load sequence, so it may load fine but have trouble ejecting.
Gravity and the weight of the tape is why you may not have this problem during the load sequence.You will need to take the cover off. Try to find the motor and belt which operates the loading mechanism. Try moving the belt pulley with your finger to give it a little help and see if it continues on with the operation. If it does, the belt is probably slipping.
Hopefully, you won't find any spilled tape in the unit.
Also look for a broken spring or cracked gear or gear with missing teeth.
Let me know what you find out and we'll go from there.
Good Luck, Jim
