T.v. ejecting vcr tape and turning self off after being turned on

My problem is that the vcr deck is stuck in a weird position and requires a tape to be in the player or the t.v. will shut itslef off everytime it is turned on. When a tape is left in it ejects the tape when the t.v. is turned on and shuts itself off. We push the tape in and turn it on again and repeat several times until it finally stays on.

My magnavox ZV457MG9 A loads a vcr tape crooked after a tape was stuck in there and we had to pull it out. any resolution to this?


Sounds like a mechanical issue which wasn't helped by forcing part of the carriage downward (I have seen this a million times and worse) You may also have a timing error in your machine which is causing the shutoff when rewind is selected. The carriage is in the wrong position in relation to the mode switch (for eject/load) and is possibly damaged in some way.

Assuming the damage to the carriage loading assembly is minimal to zero, the whole VCR mechanism will have to be re-timed (carriage re-aligned to the position of the guides and take up arm, etc. so that the entire mech is fully ejected and can load correctly) this can only be done in a service workshop by a qualified technician as it is very time consuming and may involve replacing some broken gears on the carriage (which was probably the reason tapes loaded crookedly in the first place), along with clean up and lubrication of other parts.

The good news is that it is a common thing for these to break (flimsy VHS decks with fragile gears) so it isn't too expensive to correct this but you may be without a unit for a few days while they fix the problem. If the cost of repair is reasonable, roll with it.

Tape is stuck, can't remove it


I remove a stuck tape from a VCR by taking off the outside cover. (My unit was held together by 5 screws.) This allowed me to access the tape and check where it was locked. I had to loosen a twisted tape from the mechanism and then I could eject it. (Note: I unplugged the deck before removing the cover.)

I hope this helps.

(I've been fortunate; I've only had to do this on VCR units (not VCR/DVD) that were out of warranty. If your MWR20V6 is still in warranty, you may not want to open the case at home.)

Always frustrating when a videotape gets stuck in a failing/failed VCR deck. Since all decks use a loading motor and gear system, it would be a simple matter of gaining access to the terminal pins of the loading motor (assuming you can see these from the top of the deck) and applying 9V DC voltage to 'unwind' the loading mechanism - you may get a little bit of tape outside of the cassette, but at least it's ejected. If the DVD deck works as you say, you may be able to continue using this for a while.

If the loading assembly is toward the underside of the main deck, you may need to remove the entire VCR mechanism - then you can apply the 9V to the motor to unwind the gear (it is easier to apply a low voltage to the deck rather than use physical force to unwind gears - as you may damage them) - while leaving the DVD deck in the unit untouched. There should be 2 separate mechanisms in this combo - 1 being for DVD the other being for VCR - as long as you are careful when removing the VCR deck, you should have no problem retrieving your tape (with maybe a little creasing but otherwise undamaged) from it. Be careful when removing the top cover and front panel assembly; you don't want anything broken.

Since VCRs are becoming obsolete these days, it is hardly worth getting this one repaired by any service centre (unless you want to pay a fortune, which is usually more than the retail price of a new combo unit). It's up to you.

NOTE: you cannot operate this unit with the VCR deck disconnected from the motherboard (you will get an annoying error display with the VCR removed). Once you have successfully removed your tape from it, reconnect the VCR mechanism to the board - but do not use it - just use the DVD part if that is still OK. Refit the covers, plug machine into power. Done!

You need a lot of patience to undertake the abovementioned action. Fingers crossed.

I put a vhs tape in an the vcr turns off by it self a green light keeps flashing by where it says cst in. I have a Hitachi DVD/VCR COMBO DV-PF2U. I also can not get the tape out


Unplug the power supply for thirty seconds and plug back in, this will reset the processor and might eject the tape. If this fails the next step is remove the top of the combo unit this will give access to the vcr tape, if the tape is spewed in the machine and wrapped around the video head and other mechanical parts use scissors to cut the tape and carefully removing the particles, press power to eject the tape for normal operation. However! if the vcr tape is okay, there may be a loading problem, broken drive belt, bad idler assembly to name a few, this is where a technician will be needed but may not justify cost.

VHS got jammed, clicks, turns self off


Open it up and next to the right spindal where the tape goes there should be a small, black B-S button, press it in with a pencil or pin, and it should reset the VCR's computer.

VCR tape loads and runs about 5-10 sec; then ejects


you need to clean the vcr with a cleaner that you can buy at a store. If that doesnt work then you need to take the 4 or 5 skrews out that hold the top on and look at the motor and gears move while you put a tape in and you should spot the problem pretty quick. It'll be with the round metal wheel that turns the tape.

VCR accepts tape, then turns off


I think that there is something wrong with the tape you are using. The locking mechanizm is stuck and when the VCR can't turn the reels it will eject the tape. I'm assuming that you didn't try other tapes to see if it acts the same. You can unstick the locking mechanizm by putting a pencil or something like it in the 1/4" hole between the reels on the back side of the tape. Just try pushing down on that brake release. This has worked for me. Good luck.
