Philips VR1010 VCR

My Philips VR1010 VCR is faulty. I have difficulty in ejecting tapes. They are not being 'raised' ready for ejection and I have to lift them manually, at the same time pressing the eject button. Also, if there is not a tape in the machine the door remains open.

Does this require a serviceman?

Thanks & regards, Fiona

Because of the complexity of the equipment involved I would suggest that you take it to a local authorized repair shop.

VCR won't eject tape or play & powers off


It sounds as though it's jammed. If you're mechanically inclined you can unplug the unit, take the cover off, and manually eject it. Just look for the motor that drives the load basket and manually spin the shaft. The guide-posts should retract towards the tape and the basket will then lift and eject. Just be aware that whatever bit of tape that's out of the cassette won't spool back in. You will have to do that bu hand once it's out.
When you're done, plug it back in and let it cycle then put an old cheap tape in and see if it works. If not, take it in for repair.

Tape wont eject small spring found


Take off top of vcr to expose the tape carriage lift tape door, on the lhs/rhs you shouls see the other small spring fit the spring that you have to the opposite side and try to eject your video cassette, the spring is the part that is stopping from ejecting the tape hiopefully once you have reattached the spring all should be well.

VCR tape loads and runs about 5-10 sec; then ejects


you need to clean the vcr with a cleaner that you can buy at a store. If that doesnt work then you need to take the 4 or 5 skrews out that hold the top on and look at the motor and gears move while you put a tape in and you should spot the problem pretty quick. It'll be with the round metal wheel that turns the tape.

Vcr tape stuck in unit


Marvin,
I am not registered here as an expert, so there should not be any charges. I do not have the option of chatting I am guessing only the registered experts have that. Here goes: 1. Take a phillips screw driver and remove all the screws that are holding the case on, there will be some big ones on the sides and a few maybe smaller ones on the back. 2. Lift the the case off 3. You should see the tape on the inside the vcr 4. You may or may not have to remove some of the metalic shielding which should be only anywhere from 4-6 screws if you have a piece of metal directly over the vcr tape some have them some do not. 5 Gently pull the magnetic tape up from around the feeder posts and the drum. 6. Try and work the vcr tape up and out, If you are having extreme difficulties with this try plugging the vcr back up and pushing the eject button while still holding the magnetic tape. The tape should eject now and you and carefully pull it out. 7. When you get the tape out, use your thumb to push up and turn one side of the white reals on the tape to slowly wind the magnetic tape back inside the tape. 8. Unplug the vcr again and replace everything that you had to remove and replace the cover.
I hope this helps and let me know if you need further assistance. And since I am not a registered expert here there should be no charge for this help unless you chatted or got help from one of the registered experts.

Most VCR's will auto-rewind the tape when it gets to the end of a tape. Most will leave the tape in the unit assuming you may wish to view it again once rewound. Does the tape eject properly when you press the eject button? What does the manula say about the eject function?

VCR TAPE IS STICK IN VCR PLAYER.


if you can't get the tape out enough to pull it very carefully out by hand, you'll have to bring it to a repair shop. the tape is probably twisted up inside and jammed.

Vcr jams on eject


What do you mean 'Tape crunches" Do you mean that there is tape slack, which then crunches when Tape is lifted during Eject? If that is the case, then the Supply Reel Roller Brake is bad. it is a Felt Pad, which needs replacing. If the entire eject operation is wonky, or if it's timing is bad, then I suspect that One of the eject Gears (On either side of the Mechanism) is damaged and needs to be replaced. One question, i assume that you are able to eject the Tape eventually, and so - Does the Tape Load into the VCR properly, when you insert it into the machine? This will help me in giving you a better diagnosis.
