How can I remove a stuck video tape from out of a VCR?

One of my daughters video tapes got stuck inside our VCR after she watched it and we can't remove it. Pushing on the eject button or turning the power on and off does not help. The video was put inside the correct way. What can I do? Thanks

You will have to take the cover off. ( un-plug the AC cord)
Look for the loading motor at the back right side.
Rotate the motor and you will see the tray moving thru its cycle to un-load the tape, it does take quite a few turns, its slow.
Let me know if you run into a problem?

I have a Toshiba W727. I have all new recording tapes. Recently when I playback the tape, the picture bounces, even though the actual picture on the TV did not bounce. I have used a tape to clean the...


Open up the front of the VHS tape and look at the tape inside. It should be nice and smooth. If it is not the video machine has damaged the tape and it will bounce and make a mess of the video heads again. If the tape is crinkled at the bottom side the pinch roller on the VCR is worn and needs replacing. If there is no damage to the tape. Then all you need do is give the video heads and any part that touches the tape a good clean. To do this you unplug from the mains the power lead. Remove the top cover of the VCR and with some Servisol Video 40 Spray clean the heads etc. You can use a cotton bud to get into corners. Leave to dry for about 10 minutes. And re-asemble to try a tape.

You can find the Servisol on-line.
PS if you have never seen inside a VCR before, after you have taken the top off plug the power lead back in, you don't need any other connections and play a tape and watch where the tape touches. Take the tape out and pull the plug! Then clean!
Cleaning like this is much better than a tape.

I have a vhs video cassette stuck inside my vhs. Is their any way I can get it out without breaking the vcr. It is an older vcr, but I would like to get my tape out.


You might be able to unbolt the two halves of the VCR to remove the tape, but it depends on the VCR type and how it's stuck. You might end up having to get it serviced, or just getting a new VCR, as I can almost guarantee the tape is probably damaged beyond recovery, unfortunately.

VCR tape won't eject


Hello,

The reason your tape wont eject is either because, it is stuck or the tape run loose inside of it.

To remove the tape, unplug the VCR, then unscrew it open, you will have direct access to the tape, so try to plug it back and press eject, when it gets stuck, apply a little force in pushing the tape up, to the height where it is to pass out, and it will eject your tape.

If you are not familiar with such activities, i will advice you get a repairman to get this done for you, in order for you not to damage any other part inside the VCR.

Take cacre and good luck

Won't turn on video tape stuck halfway inside


Stuck halfway inside could indicate that the actual tape is stuck in the capstan/heads. It may have never fully released from the mechanisms and returned to casing. Basically it ate your tape. You could try taking the cover off the unit and manually and carefully remove jammed tape. Unplug the unit first. Hope this is helpful.

JVC HR -J655EK Video Stuck


Hi hannah. The simplest way to remove stuck tapes is to remove the top cover. Usually just a couple of screws. Then remove the stuck tape and put the cover back into place. You can also look for emergency eject hole and insert a snall pin into the hole and attempt to eject the disc while repeatedly twisting the pin inside the hole.

Good luck!

VCR repeatedly tries to play and eject when tape deck is empty


the tape carriage is probably stuck, or something stuck inside blocking the tape sensor.
feed a tape in and see if it does it "with" the tape too

hope this helps
