Question about RCA DRC8335
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.
