These units are just like cassette players and have rubber parts inside. This unit should be overhauled. A good cleaning along with replacement rubber parts should resolve the problem. Figure on $10-$20 for parts.

My LG RC199H vcr component eats the tape when I insert a vhs cassette.


Lots of parts can damage the tape. For example if the tape is not pulled back inside when it ejects. Another good cause is the pinch roller being damaged or out of place.
The best way to find out is put an old tape in the machine (or at least one that you don't mind be chewed up, whilst the top cover is off and you can watch the tape playing. You should be able to see the problem then and take action to correct it.

Handy cam hi8 dcr


Try removing the battery and charging it. Then put the battery back on the camera. This will reset the cassette system. The cassette should open or close depending upon what status it is in. Once you get the camera to eject fully, clean your heads with a dry head cleaner cassette for Hi8 video. If your camera is still eating tape, could be a broken pin or damaged heads.

Emerson EWD2004 vcr eating vcr tapes


This is caused by mechanical problems in the VCR. Depending on the age and maker of the VCR, the take-up reel in the cassette is driven by a gear, a belt or a rubber wheel. This isn't happening properly in your VCR, so the tape is piling up inside. Given the low cost of replacement combo players (I don't think you can find just a VCR these days), it's not worth having repaired. You can expect to spend $60 to $100 on a repair for this kind of trouble, assuming there are even shops still willing to take the machine in.

Sound Issues on Audio Book Cassette Tape


This might explain things...


WHAT HAPPENS TO CASSETTES THAT WON'T PLAY
By Margie Crawford

Cassettes can be damaged in a
number of ways. Besides just wearing
out, they can be broken, twisted,
stretched, stuck, demagnetized or
missing the pressure pad. Most of these
problems can be repaired except for
demagnetization which causes the
audio to fade in and out.
Cassettes can be demagnetized at the
self-check out terminals so do not
place them on the machine while
checking out other items. At home
do not place them on speakers or near
magnets. If the audio sounds backwards
or like a foreign language, it is twisted
and can be repaired.

Eating tapes


Chances are that that "milky substance" has gummed up the works. Sounds like the pinch roller (the rubber wheel that draws the tape through the machine) may have gunk on it, so when you put a tape in and push play, the tape sticks to it, and simply wraps the tape rounmd and round.... eating the tape - as you say. The capstan SHAFT (see below) could also be dirty. Another possibility is that the take up spool (in the machine) is gunked up so it won't turn - so that the tape is spooled OUT of the cassette and is scrunched up inside the machine and the machine eats it.

There are OTHER scenarios, BUT ALL (including the above) require taking the machine apart and throughly cleaning it with alcohol (or - depending on what you're cleaning - even soap and water!).

Cleaning the capstan pinch roller and the capstan SHAFT concievable could solve your problem. The capstan shaft is the shiny metal shaft that pulls the tape through; the pinch roller "pinches" the tape AGAINST the capstan shaft which is how the tape plays.)

It's hard to "get in there" to do this cleaning (not to mention even SEE what's going on) short of taking the mache apart.

Eats tapes


When a VCR eats a tape, it can be cause by a couple things.

1. There is a rubber wheel called a "pincher wheel" that compresses the tape against the "capstan". The capstan is a shiny metal spindle connected to a motor. The pincher wheel can become worn and/or dirty (slick) from the oxide coating off of the tape. You can try cleaning the pincher wheel and capstan with alcohol or try using a re-grip solution on the pincher wheel. Last thing to do is replace the pincher wheel. Look to see that the pincher wheel is doing its job by pulling the tape through. The pincher wheel & capstan are not used during a fast forward or fast rewind, so if your tape is getting caught during the FF or RW and not Play, it's probably not related to capstan & pincher wheel.

2. There is a small tire wheel called an idler tire. This tire pivots between the sending and pickup reels of the player. Its also used during fast forward & rewind as well as play. If the tire is worn, the tape won't be wound up as fast on the take-up reel as the sending reel during play. This means more tape is coming out of the cassette than can be wound up on the takeup reel. You can try using a re-grip solution on the idler tire or replace it.
3. You didn't say if the unit played ok. There's also a brake pad that is designed to grab and stop the tape wheels from spinning when you hit stop. If those pads are worn, the wheels will not stop fast enough and the tape will continue to feed (spool) out of the cassette and not be taken up by the other wheel.

So when when you hit eject, the excess tape that should have been wound up tight in the cassette before the eject sequence, is getting caught inside the player.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
