Question about Emerson EWV403 VHS VCR

Stuck video tape

I've owned an Emerson VCR755 for years. It's been a great machine. I inserted an older tape to view which did not play. It was then ejected and another tape inserted which played fine. Several days later I inserted the first tape and now it won't eject at all. It also will not fast forward, rewind or any other function. I took the top & bottom off the recorder and the tape appears to be wound correctly but it won't eject. How can I get the tape out of the machine?

Inside the machine there is a belt and or a gear system that removes the tape from the deck. find the gears and spin them by hand. it will lift the tape up retract the tape itself back into the tape and push it out.

Go-Video VCR Problem with accepting/ejecting tapes


As with any VCR, there are rubber parts inside that have become slick. This is a simple repair for any shop. The mechanisms are Samsung ones if I remember correctly. Expect a parts cost between $20-$40. Add in the local labor rate for the total cost. This is worth the repair cost as any replacement would not last anywhere near as long. This is also a normal occurrance as rubber parts harden with age. I have repaired many of these over the years.

Do you know why the tape was stuck? How did you get it out? On most vcr's there's a mode switch connected to the mechanics of the vcr. If the mode switch isn't in stop position, the unit will try to get it there and shut off if it can't. Bad belts, bad idler wheel, dirty mode switch, mechanical timing off (maybe due to forcing a stuck tape out?)... all these can cause this.

Older VHS tapes play 'sped up' on S-VHS


A couple of possibilities: 1. One of the machines had a audio & tracking head alignment problem. If memory serves, tracking pulses are recorded on the bottom edge of the tape, and if one machine's head is slightly off, then these pulses aren't being picked up.

2. Do both machines have 3 play/record speeds? Many machines had SP, EP, & LP. Some didn't have EP, and if your older tapes were recorded in EP, perhaps this would cause your problem.

Both of these possibilities might be way out in left field.

Perhaps you could have a friend try your old tapes in their machine- in short, narrow down the defect. Is it the older VCR and it's recordings, or is it some goofy problem on the new one.

Lastly, you might check the audio/tracking head- see if it needs cleaning. This head is just to the right of the rotating video drum assembly.

VHS tape was playing . After stoping does not play. Other tape will play


The idler wheel (that only drives the tape in play or scan modes) is slipping too much (very common problem). Try verify this by putting the tape in play then immediately press the fast fwd or rewind buttons to scan the tape. On older machines, the idlers used rubber friction tires - on newer ones, a clutch. Either replace the tire or increase the spring tension on the clutch.
Hope Ya Fix It.

Try that number and see if they have a vcr belt. I saw it advertised that they have a kit that has 13 of the major drive belts for vcrs.

Hope that helps...

Emerson vcr #vcr755


have you tryed to clean the ace head??? The ace head means audio-control-erase. and is on the right side of the mechanism. this head looks like a big cassette type head and is statioary. This head can be cleaned just like an 8-track{remember those??}or cassette head by applying rubbing alcohol to a q-tip and clean the head from top to bottom. this head also may need cleaning if your tapes seem to speed up and slow down for no reason and at random. Thats because the lower part of the head is the control head and that gives the machine pulses to tell the machine what speed the tape is recorded in then the capstain motor has an fg sensor(freqency generator} and they all go thru a comparitor and the sum of both pulses gives the machine the proper speed setting. Hope this was laid out in understandable english. Good Luck
