    I have the same problem not being able to eject, play or anything with vhs tape. The unit keeps clicking like its trying to eject but doesen't. How do I get the tape unstuck?

    I inserted a tape and set it to record a program. When I attempted to tape more programming, the "no tape" message appeared. I am not able to retrieve the tape. I would be willing to take it out manually, but it may be an electrical signal problem and I don't know how to by-pass anything like that.When I turn on the "Tape: player/recorder, nothing happens. Can anyone help me?

    I have tried turning it off, unplugging it, restarting it, resetting it and holding stop/channel up.

    I have the same problem and in addition to that now my DVD player will not open and there is a disc in there. I have only had this product for 7 months before i started having issues. The entire machine is useless now and I cannot seem to get assistance anywhere. I tried RCA's website with no luck.

Cannot play a VHS tape. Push in and pops out.


The belt on the loader motor is slipping. This causes the tape to not completely position itself to allow the tape to load around the drum. The machine senses this and ejects the tape.

Power off when inserting vhs tape


I had this problem when copying an old family vhs tape. I had to unscrew the top of the magnavox to access the vhs tape. Then, I gently removed the tape and replaced the cover. After winding the tape back, I put it in the player and immediately pushed fast forward for about 3 seconds before hitting play followed by d.dubbing. I was able to make a copy of the tape and did not damage my original.

I have a philips DVDR3510V ( DVD/VHS Recorder) which is 16 months old. The problem is that the buttons on the recorder do not work ( except power button) . We thought we had got round this as the remote...


I can only speak to getting the tape out. If all else fails, you can take the player to your local best buy and have them remove the tape for a minimal fee of no more than 30$.

I cannot get it to record a vhs tape to a dvd. The vcr will play tapes and the dvd player will play dvds. I need some one to walk me through what buttons to push to record.


You need a remote to setup the dvd record and vcr record. Then you have to do dvd initialization perhaps before you can dub from tape to dvd?

Recording from vhs to dvd


Direct copy VCR to DVD:
- Insert VHS tape you want to copy
- Insert a recordable DVD disc
- Press DVD copy button on front panel or remote control (to DVD).
- To stop recording press the stop button.

IMPORTANT: If attempting to copy copyrighted material the Samsung DVD-VR320 will detect the encoding and will not allow the copy to be made.

Can't view DVD's burned from the tv on a DRC8335 RCA DVD recorder


If you do not finalize the disc then you can not play it back. Go back to your instruction manual and look under 'setting options'. There should be a choice to 'finalize disc before ejecting'. The recorder will not finalize a disc until it knows when you are done recording, so you have to tell it somehow.

DVD Drawer / VHS Eject button


My 1st suggestion is to pull the AC power plug from the wall, wait 5 minutes (have a smoke or a coffee) and plug it back in.
Then retry the functions that are giving you grief.
Report back with the results and we'll go from there.

** Please re-comment if the suggestion did not work for you, there may be several other possibilities.
