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).

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing with the TV combo unit. Based on the information you have provided, it appears that the tape head and mechanism needs to be replaced. It would be good if you can provide the exact model # of the Combo unit that you're using so that I can provide more specific instructions.
The mechanical part of the vcr has malfunctioned, or the vcr tape has wrapped itself around the video head and pinch roller. dis-assembly will be required to try and remedy the situation. may not be cost effective for repair.
turn on the machine. use your figure push on the cassette, when you feel the cassette can't go any farther (don't jam it),and hold it there. press the eject button, you may have to try this couple of times in order for the cassette to come out.
the cassette deck need to have the drive belt change.
I am currently have the same problem . I just got off the phone with the support tech and he suggested unplugging TV for about 5 minutes and if that doesnt work to unplug TV for about 2 hours. He said that may reset the TV . I am waiting now. If it works , I will leave feedback.
With the set unplugged remove the back and extract the main board. You'll find a metal cover over the tape housing area that is easily removed by removing some screws holding it to the board area and manipulating some wired over it... You should then be able to see the tape and what's hanging it up. If you need to unwrap tape from the pinch roller or around the guides do so carefully. When it all looks free you can either manually crank the load motor assembly to eject the tape or put it back together enough to plug it in and press eject. If you do the later be VERY careful...
