Question about JVC Televison & Video

Open Question

Hi, have an older model VHS # HR-A61U . The tape will not eject and found a small spring on the stand under the recorder . I opened the cabinet but cant tell where the spring goes. It is not broken or strecthed just came off. This happened a few years ago and took it to an authorized repair center and waited for a few weeks to get back at a cost of almost $100. Anyone have an idea or pic as to where this goes. The belt is not broken . thanks

Hey Lindsay

Yes the ejector is probably damaged inside maybe a bent arm or something mine is like that 2 and I didnt even bother fixing it I will be finding one very soon and I suggest you should 2 so just throw out the old and come in the new with your new vcr or dvd vcr combo..

The problem is that the "idler" assemby has gotten slippery. This is either a rubber tire or perhaps a gear that is driven by a belt inside the machine. In either case, this is a simple repair and is common as machines age. This should be a $75 repair including parts. The pinch roller (rubber cylinder) is what pulls the tape across the heads in a steady fashion and has no role in keeping the tape inside the cassette. This is handled by the idler assembly and works for FF/REW and PLAY. Also, a cleaning tape will clean the heads but not effect the pinch roller.

SOURCE: tape wont eject small spring found

Take off top of vcr to expose the tape carriage lift tape door, on the lhs/rhs you shouls see the other small spring fit the spring that you have to the opposite side and try to eject your video cassette, the spring is the part that is stopping from ejecting the tape hiopefully once you have reattached the spring all should be well.

Hi, I have a JVC HR-J658 VCR that doesn't eject tapes.


You mean a tape is stuck inside? Disconnect power and open up the cover. If the tape is stuck around the posts, free it and by manually turning the loading motor you can slowly get the mechanism to eject the tape.

Our Toshiba VCR won't play tape. It ejects tape after a few seconds.


If you are trying to play older VHS tapes, you may have to run them through some fast forward-rewind cycles to condition them and relieve stress

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.

Will not release the cassette when ejected and breaks the tape.


there is a spring attached to the tape release gear that will eventuall wear out through time, also, sometimes the rubber belts wear out and throws the timing off.
That would be the first two things to check. Make sure spring is not stretched. Try testing with cover off and watch to see if the part holding the back of the tape releases.

JVC HR -J655EK Video Stuck


Hi hannah. The simplest way to remove stuck tapes is to remove the top cover. Usually just a couple of screws. Then remove the stuck tape and put the cover back into place. You can also look for emergency eject hole and insert a snall pin into the hole and attempt to eject the disc while repeatedly twisting the pin inside the hole.

Good luck!

Older VHS tapes play 'sped up' on S-VHS


A couple of possibilities: 1. One of the machines had a audio & tracking head alignment problem. If memory serves, tracking pulses are recorded on the bottom edge of the tape, and if one machine's head is slightly off, then these pulses aren't being picked up.

2. Do both machines have 3 play/record speeds? Many machines had SP, EP, & LP. Some didn't have EP, and if your older tapes were recorded in EP, perhaps this would cause your problem.

Both of these possibilities might be way out in left field.

Perhaps you could have a friend try your old tapes in their machine- in short, narrow down the defect. Is it the older VCR and it's recordings, or is it some goofy problem on the new one.

Lastly, you might check the audio/tracking head- see if it needs cleaning. This head is just to the right of the rotating video drum assembly.
