Question about Hitachi Televison & Video
Hitachi VT-MX910EUk. Will take in tape cartridge but does not pull out the tape to the head - simply ejects every time. Assume some form of tape registration is failing? If I crank the main loading gear by hand I can get it to take the tape to the head - but never under it's own power. Regrads, Neil
I concur with shuttle 83's analysis; that the sensor(s) in the carriage have gone south on you. These are simply photo transistors, and are readily available at just about any parts supply house...accordianman

You may have a bad tape position sensor assembly (LED and photo transistor). It's purpose is to detect where the tape is in the loading process, and if the tape is not in the proper place at the proper time the tape is returned to the cassette and the cassette is ejected. This sounds like what you are talking about. I would suggest getting a schematic and checking the bias voltages (with a multimeter) on the tape position sensor assembly. If the sensor is bad replace it, if it is not check the tape sensor assembly circuitry.
I hope this helps
