Hi,
This kind of problem occurs if safety record switch itself become defective, safety tab of VHS tape push record switch located in VHS mechanism, if this switch becomes defective/ contacts clogged then system control chip wont get its signal and assume that tape record tab is open and tape is not recordable.
Please check record switch in VHS mechanism and make sure it is working, clean its contact with small piece of sad paper if found clogged, this will fix contact problem and safety tab of VHS tape will close safety record switch then VCR will start recording on tape.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

MY RCA VCR - TIMER LIGHT ALWAYS FLASHES. WHEN i TRY TO RECORD OR TURN OFF VCR IT EJECTS TAPE.


If it plays a tape OK, then it could be that you have a timer set. In which case clear it! Or that you are using a blank tape where the slot at the back is open. If you are using a blank tape which is good and it still ejects the tape after setting the recording. Then it's likely the recording tab sensor - that detects the slot at the back of the tape - is either bent or broken.

Can't get the timer record to set. The tape ejects when I turn TV off. There is some trick and I do not have the manual to figure it out.


Try a new tape, or put a piece of tape over the hole found in the back of the tape you are using. If the record safety tab is still present it may be bent. A piece of tape will rectify this too.
The tab is there to protect the tape from being recorded over by accident. If removed or bent slightly, the vcr will detect it and will not record on the tape.
Most VCRs will eject the tape, or show some kind of error message.

When I set the VCR, turn it off, the timer comes on but the tape comes out.


Sounds like hopefully just the record tab has been removed from the vhs tape itself. It is located on the back, left side of the tape. Where you normally put the labels. If its not there then there will be a roughly half inch square opening. Theres supposed to be a tab there to allow recording and if you dont want to accidentally record you remove the tab.
If you have a store bought movie they already have the tab removed and you can compare it with a blank tape and you will see the difference.

If the tab is there, then it will be the internal switch inside the vcr that rarely but probably will be bad. You can try cleaning it with say a q-tip and alcohol. I could not locate one to purchase if it is bad. You might have to buy another vcr. Parts are extremely hard to get on vcr's because of price of new ones.
Hopefully its just the record tab. Thanks and good luck

When I try to tape a program to the vcr, the tape ejects when I press record. I unplugged it as suggested in the manual and tried again. The dvd works fine.


Check the record switch in the video recorder. The thing that pushes on the tab on the video tape! If bent or broken, your VCR will assume that the blank tape has no tab and thus eject it, as though it was a protected tape!

Tapes won't go down, and then eject.


Have you tried to force eject the cassette. May be the ribon of the tape has come out. Try using another cassette.

VCR ejects tape when I try to record using the timer facility


Simple. The Cassette's 'Prevent Erasure' tab is missing. Just cover with Scotch tape and reload. Now try recording.

VCR ejects blank tape only


It sounds like the cassette is not releasing the tape so the machine can put it around the heads. This could damage the machine. Don't use it. A two dollar tape is not worth damaging your vcr. Throw it away.

VCR won't take tape


Is it ejecting the tape when you set up for timed record, or any record mode for that matter? If so, check for the presence of the record lockout tab in the tape. If tab is there, machine should accept it. If machine ejects tape with the tab present, then the sensor which detects tab present or absent is probably afoul. this sensor is often a small switch. This tab, by the way, is on the backside of the tape, on the left, looking at the tape from the back.
