My tape was stuck too. Easy to retrieve, here's how...

Unscrew the five screws. (Two in the front sides, three in the back)

Slide the lid back, then lift it off.

You'll see the "track" where the VHS tapes move forward, then down. Place a finger on each side of the track, and gently glide the tape back up and then forward, manually ejecting the tape.

Slide the lid back on.

***** in the screws.

(Now if only the other issues this device seems to have were that easy!)

Check the power supply caps C211-210 near the back beside D201-203 rectifier I replaced 2 220uF at 16v. I used 330 at 35v as I didn't have any higher voltages for a 220uF.
From what I can gather it's probably the power supply and more likely capacitors for most of this units problems

Yes, this worked great to get the tape out. The mechanism does not work with pushing a tape in.

Toshiba vcr tape stuck after power outage


Do you have any small children who have access to the machine? Kids are notorious for posting coins, half eaten biscuits and bits of toys into the tape slot. 1st give the machine a light shake and see if it rattles, next remove it from any power source and remove the cover. You may find something obvious, if not, reconnect the power, being careful not to touch anything inside, and try to load a tape. Dirty heads WILL playback, but will NOT record. The standard for these machines is load spool to erase head, to video head, to soundhead, then between drive spindle and pinch roller and on to take up spool. Has the tape you are trying to record had the tab removed, if so (like a pre recorded tape) it will NOT record until you place a piece of tape securely over the tab hole.

F 04 - Tape stuck in recorder


F04 means that the mechanism locks during unloading. You need to check the Load motor and it's timing.
You have by the way a K Mech model. This will help you find parts and other information on the mechanism.

JVC HR -J655EK Video Stuck


Hi hannah. The simplest way to remove stuck tapes is to remove the top cover. Usually just a couple of screws. Then remove the stuck tape and put the cover back into place. You can also look for emergency eject hole and insert a snall pin into the hole and attempt to eject the disc while repeatedly twisting the pin inside the hole.

Good luck!

Wont Record


Usually when a tape starts to play automatically this means that the tab on the back of tape has been removed to stop others recording over it check the tab little black tab in a recess on back edge of tape if this is missing you can put a bit of sellotape over the whole to blank it off this will tell the video tape is ok to record on.
However if the tab is still in place the try putting a small bit of tape over it also to raise the clearence slightly then put back in video and try to record if this still dont work then the mechanism that detects the tab has failed these can be replace but usuall parts are hard to come by now as they no longer make vcrs any more but let me know ok i can assist you further just check tabs in place even try raising it with a bit of card stuck over tab with tape this might make the tab switch work if it has wonr down abit let me know ok.
As you look form back of tape the tab is bottom left hand corner check its flush with the tape if not use sellotape to repair let me know the outcome ok
