Hi,

This is an electro/mechanical problem which could be:
1. cut/slipping belt;
2. gear mechanism;
3. foreign object lodged inside;
4. drive motor/pulley;

As you can see a number of possibilities. Since this would involve opening the unit (a bit complicated with combo units), perhaps your best bet wold be to seek the services of a qualified professional. Sorry but no easy fix for the user. Actually the difficult part is not fixing but rather disassembling.

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.

It will have a mechanical problem in the transport whereby it is not fully loading, If you have kids, pop the door up and see if there is anything dropped down inside it. If the load assembly has a problem, then they can be replaced as a complete part. You may need to get a tech to look at it for you. If you want to do it yourself, I can help you get the parts, and talk you through it.

1) 70% of the time, I put any VHS tape into my Sylvania DVC840E DVD/VCR Combo, the VCR immmediately kicks the Tape right back out again. Majority of the time, I have to push the tape in at least 4 or 5...


There is a mode switch operated mechanically after inserting the VHS tape. Locate it. First try using switch cleaning oil. If it does not work, then the mode switch has to be cleaned using very fine polish paper (specially used for cleaning electronic contacts) after dissembling.Warning:-Removing & fitting the mode switch is very tedious job. The sequence in which it operates is important. If the sequence goes wrong, it will damage the gears. If you are not sure do not carry out these repairs on your own. It is better as it is now. Try to get the service manual.

How to eject a stuck vhs tape.


I will show you how to eject a stuck vhs tape. I did this on the sony slv-d300p first, unplug it. Next, take out all the screws on the back. Take off the cover. Locate the loading motor on the right. Turn the gears next to it. After about 5 minutes, the tape should eject. While its open, take a CLEAN piece of paper, hold it up to the drum, and rotate it with the paper against the back. after 5 minutes, take the paper off and stop spinning. the paper may be dirty. put the cover back on, and try to put in a vhs c adapter with NO vhs c in it. when you put it in, it should spit it back out.

When I put in a VHS, the power goes off and when I turn it back on, it ejects the tape.


It has a tape transport problem. It shuts off to avoid any damage. It probably is not loading the cassette all the way in.

Vcr cuts my tv off after i put the tape in


The VCR is not turning the TV power off. The tape is not playing. I'd guess maybe it needs a cleaning or a replacment.

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....


When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian

Dejar solamente la TV


you have a Philco, TV\VCR Combo Your problem is the VCR.The rubber band that pulls in the Vhs tape and kicks it out is stretched,
or damaged. The TV turns off to protect itself. You need a replacement.If u know how to get inside,look at the right side of the VHS section [you will be facing the back of the TV] be careful! "Electricity HURTS. It will be very hard to find the replacement VHS rubber band. There are 3 bands, replace them ALL!!, not just the damaged one.

Tape ejection malfunction


The problem may very well be a slipping spool idler that does not tension the tape properly when trying to eject. Try cleaning the rubber friction surfaces or replacing the part....accordianman
