That could be caused by a damaged mechanism. When power is applied the mechanism will try to reset the deck to the eject mode if there is no tape in. But if is damaged it can't do that. What you are hearing is the mechanism trying to do something and failing.
1. Check to see if a tape is jammed inside (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape). 2.
Try changing the video input and/or output source. Many VCRs have two
ways to receive and send a video signal (coaxial and video direct). If
that works, try changing the cable for the other method to see whether
you need a new cable. 3. Clean tape heads (see How to Clean VCR Heads). 4.
Open VCR and inspect any belts that are accessible (see 284 Extract a
Jammed Videotape). A drive belt may be broken or loose.
If tapes are getting stuck / enmeshed inside the machine, itis 90%
probability) a mechanical problem. Change the Belts, clean all rollers,
idlers, and braking pads. I would suggest that you also replace the Capstan Pinch Roller.
It is possible that the mechanism is out of mode as the front cassette loading mechanism and the tape forward loading mechanism have gone out of sync. Now it is important that the MODE of the system control is in the correct parking.
Hence I feel that the VCR must be opened and the mechanism reset-ted. Make sure that the tape loading has come back to the correct parking and also the cassette loading has returned, other wise remove the mechanism and reset.
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!
On Sony DSR-80P error 02-221 and 02-291 is a problem with the tape
pull-in or eject. Mostly the tape stickers are bad situated over the
stripe-cover at the top, which should be moving freely!
Remove the stickers from the tape or put them lower on the case. If the
tape is already inside the machine is unable to reject the tape -
disconnect the machine from electricity to open it or call service...
Unplug the VCR, take the cover off, find the motor (probably on the
right side of the mechanism) and turn its shaft with your fingers until
you have run the tape back out. Now plug it back in and try it
again with a scarificial tape. If it continues to fail, replace
all the rubber belts in the mechanism.
Hope ya fix it!
