I have tried this with tab on tape and without incase its stuck on record but no luck im wondering if i can wind the mechanism in somehow. so far i get the tape to go in it will go around the pinch rollers for a few seconds and then eject it again. any help would be appreciated
Try carefully cleaning the video head drum.
If it has any deposits on the heads, it may not be getting enough signal to synchronize and if it can't do this is a limited time, it will spit it out.
To clean it, use something that leaves no residue such as pure denatured alcohol and a cloth that leaves little or no lint.
Not the 'rubbing alcohol' variety as this contains 30-40% water and that isn't a good idea.
