Question about Philips CCC132AT 13 in. TV/VCR Combo
A tape is stuck in the VCR. The tape box is outside with the tape itself running into the player and wrapped around what appears to be the play head, which remains in its retracted (play?) position. Prior to the tape ejecting improperly, the VCR was producing only a jumpy picture with many lines. The audio was fine, but the picture was jumpy or even sometime completely blank (blue screen).
Could be that you're looking at a blown cartridge for that vcr tape. You may need to cut the tape, to extract that from the unit.
The play head would usually retract when the cartridge is removed, BUT could be compromised by some tape getting into the play head mechanism, and jamming.
be particularly careful with anything pointy or sharp, as the tape head does NOT like those objects near the read surface.
