This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Record button does not work I press the record button and ejects the tape


The sensor switch which pushes against the record tab on the tape is either bent out of shape, or broken. Therefore the video recorder thinks that the tape you put in is a pre-recorded or protected tape, thus ejects it.

When you record, it says on the screen " eject tape"


You could try to clean the video head with a cleaning tape. But more likely there is a problem with the mechanics :( (You could also check it this also happens with another tape.)

Most VCR's will auto-rewind the tape when it gets to the end of a tape. Most will leave the tape in the unit assuming you may wish to view it again once rewound. Does the tape eject properly when you press the eject button? What does the manula say about the eject function?
