This is a safety feature of the machine. If it does not detect tape movement, the unit will shutdown and eject the tape.

Our Toshiba VCR won't play tape. It ejects tape after a few seconds.


If you are trying to play older VHS tapes, you may have to run them through some fast forward-rewind cycles to condition them and relieve stress

VCR won't record, just ejects tape


You have not mentioned the make and model number of the vcr. Any way the problem is due to end sensor or related circuit. End sensors are photo diods which you can check the shorting with a multy meter.

Vcr/dvd combo, vcr no longer will play tape, when I press play, after a few seconds will eject tape.


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the eject mechanism and the drive motor connected with the tape mechanism. Try and align the drive motor. Also check the push-pull arm of the tape mechanism and make sure that the springs connected with the mechanism are fine.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

VHS tape plays for a few seconds and automatically ejects


My guess would be dirt on the rollers inside the VCR. They sesnse a jam and ejct. Try a VCR cleaner (with cleaning fluid) and see if that helps.

VCR ejects blank tape only


It sounds like the cassette is not releasing the tape so the machine can put it around the heads. This could damage the machine. Don't use it. A two dollar tape is not worth damaging your vcr. Throw it away.

VCR tape won't eject


you should take the bottom off and you will see a gear with a belt around it try to turn it the same direction as when it is turned off, do not force it but it may need a little force to move the wheel.

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

I was wondering if you tryed unplugging vcr for an hour then
plugging it back up. sometimes this resits it and it will work fine.
the tape might eject itself out or eject button might work.

VCR Tape will not play, it keeps ejecting


I have a similar problem. It takes 3 or 4 times to get my Sony VCR to accept a tape. Once it does, everything is fine, until I turn it off. Next day, same trouble. I tried several tapes and brand new tapes. No difference. I have opened the cabinet and used alcohol to clean various stuff, no change.
