Question about Zenith Televison & Video
SOURCE: tape stuck in vcr
If the tape is really stuck, your only resort will be to unscrew the cover off the unit and get to the assembly where the tape heads are. You can just simply pull the tape out (carefully). Some of the tape might still be spooled on the capstans or pinch rollers.

If VCR mechanism doesn't load or unload properly, TV will shut off. VCR machnisam in your TV requires cleaning/ service. Spacialy belts and pulleys.

SOURCE: Power shuts off
The problem is the reel sensor or associated cricuitry. I am an electronic tech and could not figure out what was wrong. I replaced sensor and sensor emitter with no change. It was not the micro. I finally gave up and told the customer I could not repair unit. No schematic or parts available from Philips/Magnavox

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.

the letter R could be a fault code to that machine. depending on the deck installed a number of faults could cause it to instantly eject such as its not lacing the tape correctly or the deck as gone out of timing due to wear. the tape run pulses are not being detected due to senser problems .tray switches faulty ...even some thing fallen inside and jamed the deck like a label from the cassette.good luck farr64
