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.

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.

The deck ejects the tape once inserted into it,other functions look normalI have a panasonic VCrmodel NV PO3am 2rm manufactured by Matsushita company.A tape was jammed into the machine.It was manually...


VCR's have a thing called a mode switch. This tells the electronics of the machine what position the mechanical section is in. If it gets wrong signals then the VCR electronics will take action to correct the problem. In this case ejecting any tape you put in. These wrong signals are caused by the damage to the VCR mechanical section, which might account for the tape getting stuck. Even though you have removed it, doing so repositioned various parts. Perhaps in this case something to do with the carriage unit, being in the wrong position. In any case the whole mechanical system will need to be reset. This is not an easy thing to do and unless you have set up the VCR before a service manual will be needed. This is because everything will have to be set right or different problems will happen. For example it is common practice in Panasonic VCR's to have the carriage in the loaded position when setting it up. And you will also need to know the correct position of various items - including the mode switch!
Before doing so I would look around to see if any plastic parts are damaged.
Panasonic use the same mechanical systems in different models. They tend to be called after a letter of the alphabet, such as K-Deck etc. I don't know which one your model uses but finding it out well make life easy for you repairing the machine.

My tape is stuck inside and i want to eject


Locate any screws that hold the top in place. carefully slide the top off. find the loading motor. it should have a worm gear on it. turn the gear and after a while the tape should come out. is this only in one vcr in the duel deck? please reply if you can fix it. if that did not work, just let me know. good luck!

Tape deck is stuck


push the eject button at the same time get a nail file and insert it in the tape slot
on the right hand side of the deck
it may take three hands one to push eject one to push the eject mechanism inside the radio behind the tape
and one to help remove the tape
if that doesnt work....dont try forcing anything as the stereo WILL break..... take the stereo out of the car, so it is not connected to the electrics, then either, gently take it apart with a screwdriver

I would suspect the belts, look for any small motors and missing belts. You may be able to manualy turn a wheel or gear till it ejects.
if your not comfortable doing this urself with the above said porcedures... its better to take it to the dealer...

CASSETTE STUCK IN VCR WONT EJECT I TURN VCR ON IT STAYS


When the tape has been removed the carriage deck will still be in the wrong position. The cassette tray has to be aligned so that the timing of the tape will detect that there is a tape in the machine. At the moment your VCR thinks there is a tape still in it because the cassette tray is not in the full eject position. This can be fixed by a service technician.

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.
