VR 470 VHS VCR

How do I remove a stuck tape out of this unit? Is there a manual wheel i can turn to raise the tape to the door level. What causes the tape to get stuck and not eject anyway? Is a service book available for this? Thanks Scott

First: Unplug the unit

Next: Open the unit by taking out the screws that are holding the outer panel which should be every screw that you can find.

Third: Once inside the unit, Try manuvering the tape roll off of the rollers and carefully to the tape and then manuver it out the front or top of the vcr.

If you take a picture while the cover is off, I can help give you better advice. You may have to plug the vcr back in, so that you can try ejecting the tape while it is unrolled, then you will have to manually roll it back into the tape. Let me know if you need any further help and I will be more than happy to help you out.

Good luck

    Depending on which side the tape is haging from, you may have a lack of take up torque or rew is not reeling the tape back into the machine well enough

    generally to get the tape out of a machine. you can take the lid off, and assist the tape from tangling about guides and rollers. Unscrewing the load/carriage assembly may be the only way you can do this without destroying the tape. Be aware though, most tapes are damaged when crunched by rollers, stretched are folded and should not be used agan, unless you need to dub of the footage. In which case, you may experience problems of head soling or more tangling when you reach the damaged spot again.

    with the lid off, once you have removed the tape, insert another old tape(in case it chews as well), and see what is happening when you eject. If on eject the tape stays looped out in the machine when the tape guides return, try FF or REW the tape to get rid of the loop before ejecting. If you have no REW or FF then you have a reeling motor or reel drive problem. For the cost of VCR's these days. fixing it may cost near as much to do. Taking the unit to a repair guy near to you for a quote is the best bet here. Good luck

VHS tape will not eject and unit shuts down


It's not loading correctly. You need to open the cover (unplug first) and get familiar with the loading mechanism. You can get the tape out by rotating the loading motor wheel.

How to remove a VHS that is stuck in the VCR?


You really have to open the VCR. But you have to know how to turn and move things, so the damaged tape can come out, without damaging the tape mechanism. It is not even in a user manual, but once you know how to do it, you can use the same trick innermost any VCR. To complicated to explain in words, Check if you can find a Youtube video or something on ifixit.com

STUCK VHS TAPE


If you know how to do this open the latch on the cassette when it stops and look to see if something got spilled into or on the tape itself.

If the unit only shuts off with this tape the cassette is the issue.

If you open the door on the tape (little square button to release the door also look (happens if you use same tape a lot and fast scan with it) to see if the bottom edge of the tape has curved waves in it--should be perfectly flat with no ripples at bottom edge of the tape.

Vhs tape stuck in unit and won't eject it mitsubishi u 82


You might have to remove the tape yourself first. Some makers provide instructions for removing a tape in a service manual. But there is no way to be certain it contains instructions like this. After you get it out, the thing will be what caused the tape to fail anyway. The VCR might go back to normal after the tape is removed. VCR's shut the power off when the mechanism struggles to function right. This is done to prevent damage further to the mechanism.
My advice is remove the tape carefully and check for damage. Look for broken plastic parts. If it looks good power the thing up. And see what the mechanism does, with the top cover off! Sometimes damage can cause the mode switch to go out of place, but the mode switch can cause the mechanism to go out of sync anyway!
Good luck with that anyway.

Unplug the TV/VCR/DVD Combo from the main power for a couple of minutes, the unit may eject the tape at the power ON.
You can also try openening the unit, reset the loading posts and eject the tape by manually turning gears, motors etc..You have to know what you're doing otherwise, you will do more damage or get injured and don't forget HIGH VOLTAGE CAN KILL.

A cassette has jammed inside my vcr machine. It will not move forward or backward Can yoy please help


Hello,

Since the tape won't come out then it means you will have to manually remove the stuck tape. This involves you disassembling the unit in order to help/assist the player get the stuck tape out.

Turn of the unit and remove from the wall, get a Philip screw driver, use it to remove all the screws from the unit and take it apart.

Open the cover and you will see the stuck tape and what's hooking or preventing it from coming out/ejecting.

Now plug the unit, and turn it on. Press the eject button, as the tape tries to come out, support it with your hand so that it can come out.

Or if it happen that the cassette tape has coiled inside the unit, carefully free the coiled tape and the press the eject button.

Lastly, the moment you disassemble the player, you would see what's preventing it from coming out, then you can free whatsoever that is making it stuck press the eject button and the tape should come out.

Make sure the unit is turned off each time you want to remove what's making the cassette stuck.

I hope understand the above explanations.

Good luck.
