Question about Sony SLV-679HF VHS VCR
While the tape may appear to be loading properly, it is not. These units have a known problem with the grease at the loading arm getting sticky. This means that the tape is not loaded properly and will not move through the VCR properly. This is detected as the hubs not moving and the unit will eject the tape to prevent damage. This is a simple repair for anyone that has done these before, but requires an alignment check. This check requires a special alignment tape and equipment.
This should be a labor only repair.

The VCR is detecting something it doesn't like. Could be a foreign object inside, or the gearing out of time or ... Take the cover off and watch it as it loads and you'll probably figure out why.

There schould be a release buuton on the rear of the machine. It's usually recessed and may be difficult to see. Press this with the yip if a ballpoint pen and extract the tape. If the tape is wrapped around the record/playback heads your only option is to remove the top cover and manually remove the tape. Sounds difficult but if you take your time it's not too bad a job.

Testimonial: "Thank you! - no button - took the top off. I depressed a lever next to the tape switched the VCR back on and pressed the eject button - it worked!"
