Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, there are only 2 possible reasons why the VHS tape could not be inserted:

  • another tape is inside or a foreign object is blocking the loading slot;
  • the loading mechanism has faulted in mid eject/load position.
Options then are:
  • consider a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair if and only if comfortable working with electronics / electro-mechanical components & circuitry, use of a DVM/VOM, a soldering iron/station and safe practices with electrically powered devices. Access to a Service Manual or at the very least, an exploded parts diagram would be a necessity;
  • should you be uncomfortable with a DIY, perhaps your best bet would then be to consult with and/or seek the services of an authorized Service Center or a qualified professional.
Offhand if a DIY is being considered, shine a flashlight towards the inside if the loading slot cover would grant even a small opening. While the repair if ever required would not be that difficult, it is extracting the VCR mechanism that would be a major challenge.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

SOURCE: Magnavox mwd 2206 dvd vcr player....shuts off with eject word across screen.

On a unit I checked with this same symptom, removing the top cover allows the unit to stay on and operate normally. There is some sort of sensor at the left middle of the chassis, which, when unblocked by any opaque object, allows the unit to remain on. A temporary fix (not advisable) would be to replace the top cover with a piece of clear plastic or taut saran wrap (no vent holes needed). It's unclear exactly where/what that sensor is from a cursory test. This is a work in progress on someone else's machine that I lack full access to.

When inserting vhs tape, the player pulls the tape from inserted vhs


That is exactly what a typical M-Load mechanism is supposed to do. Once the VHS tape cassette is inserted, cassette housing cover will be flipped up and two arms will pull tape out of cassette housing to wrap tape around cylindrical spinning head housing that contains video heads and, if VHS HI-FI, audio heads as well. When stop or eject button is pressed, arms will retract and tape will wind back into cassette housing. What type of problem are you experiencing with unit? It may have nothing to do with M-load engaging tape around head cylinder.

My Panasonic VHS Player Model PV-V4020 is locked up so I cannot insert a new tape.


This will be some form of physical damage to the carriage mechanism, that holds the tape. Sometimes it's a simple thing like the flap getting stuck. But often it's a broken piece of plastic.

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.
