the end-of-tape optical sensor is at fault. either it is very dirty, has failed or something else is detecting end of tape. many VCR's now will auto-eject the tape upon end of tape detect

What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill

SOURCE: Panasonic 7350 VCR Keep ejecting tapes just seconds after loading

This happens when he strings are worn out or broken. It will not hurt to replace the strings of the VCR after some while.

How can I get my tape to eject?Sharp VC-A560. Played my taped, rewound, but tape would not eject. Tried to play again and it would not play.What can I do?


Unplug from wall outlet - find the wheel that ejects the tape when you slowly turn it. It's usually on the right side when the cover is open. Avoid touching any metal parts.

My sharp VCR wont accept tapes, they pop out when I insert them, help?


This often caused by a faulty carriage assembly. Another cause is a mode switch failure. The mode switch tells the electronics what position the VCR mechanism is in. When it goes faulty it will cause the tape to eject sometimes. However any kind of mechanism damage can cause the mode switch to go into a wrong position.

Sharp VC-H973U suddenly unable to play/record tapes


With these things it's best to see what is going on to see if it can be fixed. So what I suggest you do is take the top cover off and using an old tape which you don't mind getting mangled insert it and watch where it gets tangled up. Without looking into it you can't determine what's faulty.

VCR won't record.


When you press record, does the tape eject? if it does, make sure the safety tab is intact. if not, put a piece of scotch tape over the hole. Do you hit the record button on the vcr or a universal remote? On a remote, you may have to hit recort 2 times.

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.

Loads then unloads the tape


could be a sensor problem. look at bottom side of videotape. in the center towards the top is a round hole, above a screw. then insode the vcr (take top cover off) theres a prism or led sticking up that goes into that hole in the tape, when the tape is loaded. try wrapping masking or electrical tape around it (only a temporary fix)
