The mechanism on VCR are complicated. You can open it (make sure its not plugged in). Try to rotate the motor manually that is responsible for the loading mechanism. So that you can eject the tape. Or if you want you can just take out the whole VCR mechanism so that your TV will not shut off. if you are succesfull in ejecting the tape manually and also pay close attention to the mechanism. Do not put another tape in there unles you find out what is causing the mechanical prblem.

Won't eject tape.


I had a Sony SLV-N60 VCR that wouldn't eject the tape.

After removing a few large and obvious screws, the I took off the cover. Inside, on one of the white plastic arms (not really an arm, but a moving part), there was a piece of junk, looked like part of a popcorn hull or something. I took that out, and for good measure, vacuumed out the rest of the chassis. The lubrication looked good, so I left it alone.

After doing that, the tape ejected perfectly. I put the cover back on, and it still works.

How do I repair a VCR tape? My vcr chewed a special video taken in Ireland and I can't replace it.


You could cut of the damaged part and use thin clear office tape to mend it.
Place the ends overlapping and cut with sharp carpet knife or with scissors.
I have repaired quite a few tapes succesfully.
You will lose the damaged section of the content on the tape.

Magnavox TV: Somehow the record button on the remote will not record VCR. It ejects the tape and does not record. Please help. Thank you.


Try Using a new VHS tape. If the new tape ejects when press recording, the recording switch inside your VCR could be defective.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

My vcr won't tearn on and its connected to my tv who now can not tearn on and on top of all that in my vcr there is a vhs that I need to return immediatly.


Hi,

Even if the TV is connected to the VCR, chances are that it would only be the signal (RF or Audio/Video) cables and not the power cords. Both not powering on would indicate an electrical problem such as:
1. defective power strip as wall outlet;
2. blown fuse or popped open circuit breaker;
3. a near lightning strike or power outage that has affected the AC section of the 2 devices.

One that you can try is to remove the VCR from its current location and try plugging it elsewhere. If it powers up (and hopefully you can eject the tape that needs to be returned), then you likewise have confirmed the electrical problem,

Alternately, you can manually removed the tape (with the possibility of wrinkling a few areas) by opening the top cover, determining the motor/gear drive that ejects the tape and just basically winging it. Of course your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I push the tape into the Vcr it tries to play it then it simply ejects it after about 5 seconds.


This is a safety feature of the machine. If it does not detect tape movement, the unit will shutdown and eject the tape.
