Tape mechanism problems are quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed 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.

Item: DLT tape drive ( DLT8000 SCSI LVD Loader For Scalar 100 )Problem: Eject spring not fully loaded, as the result pick up tape unable to reach to pick. Please advice.


Look at this document to see if the interposer mechanism is holding the tape from ejecting. The solenoid that energizes to tape insertion or ejection sometimes relaxes and you have to move it manually out of the way to recover the tape.

My TRV68 ejected a tape half ways and stopped. I removed the power source and then the tape ejected fully upon reconnecting the battery. HOWEVER, now the tape loads and then will not stay in - the camera...


This is a common problem often caused by a problem with the head/motor assembly. This is not a DIY repair. It is possible that this can be repaired without any parts. Expect to pay in the $150 range for labor.

How does the vcr release the tape to be ejected?


When in play the tape is pulled out of the cassette & wrapped around a path that takes it across the heads using guide arms.When you press STOP/EJECT. the guide arms move back leaving the tape slack, at the same time a clutch device engages the take up spool & rotates to turn the spool in the cassette & wind the slack tape back into the cassette. When the arms are fully retracted a selector switch has moved into position to activate a motor which turns the mechanism to bring the cassette housing back up to the start position & relaeses the tape. If there is still tape catching the mechanism when you try to eject or some of the tape not fully back inside the cassette, this is most likely because the take up spool is not turning quickly enough to take up the slack tape.

Won't Eject Tape


same problem, after you hit eject is pops out and never opens up, to the right of the "push" button is an arm with a spring, pushing it back will open that side, on the left side is a pin with an arm you can move the arm back the pin moves and the other side will open as well, wont fix the problem but will get you your tape back.  I have a very upset wife, we had a jvc mini DV went out one winter change in temp killed it instantly, now our canon has sat a few years and wont work either,  we bought a flip video, it works.

Cannot eject VHS tape from Sony SLV-X811


I had a similar problem with a Panasonic VCR. It would not eject the tape and gave an error code. I found that the door does not quite fully open, so that the top of the tape hits the door and cannot eject. If I turn off and then turn on the VCR the error code disappears. Then I press the eject button and simultaneously hold the door fully open with one finger until the tape starts to eject and clears the door.

Tape stuck in VCR, won't eject.


you posted 2 different problems here...
to answer this one ". The tape is stuck, won't eject and I'd like to get it out without damaging the VCR unit."...open unit, find motor that moves tape ejector and spin that motor by hand (power off)

the other problem, "the VCR will not insert a tape. It keeps rejecting it."...open unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.

FG fault when starting capstan.

Make sure battery is fully charged or a/c cord is used. Turn power on, and push reset button, try to eject tape again. Your capstan motor may be dead.

Tape deck won't eject tape


The tape might be wrapped around the head or the capstan. The mechanism is delicate so you risk more damage by trying yourself - check with some of the repair shops on the Fixya home page for prices to remove the tape.

Playback & Ejection Problem


Hi, You usually get an EJECT TAPE when the camcorder has found an internal problem and either the videocassette or the camera itself has developed a problem. In you case, it looks like you tape has a problem. Daniel
