My sharp VCR wont accept tapes, they pop out when I insert them, help?


This often caused by a faulty carriage assembly. Another cause is a mode switch failure. The mode switch tells the electronics what position the VCR mechanism is in. When it goes faulty it will cause the tape to eject sometimes. However any kind of mechanism damage can cause the mode switch to go into a wrong position.

Sometimes the codes used in the remote are the wrong type for your model VCR. Though functions will work with some codes. It's best to try some of the other codes for GE VCR's and see if that triggers it to life the missing menu.

Everything works fine, replaced RF tuner, fixed carriage elevator, but whenever the VCR is powered on, it tries to eject whether a cassette is in the device or not. Any thoughts?


Try cleaning the mode switch with Servisol Video 40. When you fixed the carriage also, you did get put it back right, in the correct position, otherwise the VCR will think it's in the wrong mode, even if the mode switch is fine!

Tape stuck in VCR


First locate the load and unload motor, it is the one with the rubber drive band. release the drive band and rotate the gear to raise and pull the carriage back into position.
This should remove your cassette, and put the carriage back into position.

Not a good signal


You may have a connection problem, particularly check the cable which goes from VCR output to TV input. The RF signal is carried on the center conductor of the coax cable. If you look at the end of the coax, you will see this center wire. If this wire is substantially recessed (too short) or bent over, then it might not make contact with the connection of the VCR tuner out or TV in. Try a different interconnection cable. If problems still remain with this substitute cable, when you have things all hooked up, try moving the cabling from side to side, and see if the picture quality changes substantially. Another possibility is the tuner in the VCR is defective. If so, repair is not economical- replace the VCR.
