Question about Zenith ZHX-313 System
I've somehow gotten a tape stuck in my VCR and it won't come out. I've held the Eject button thinking that that would solve the problem, only it's not. What do any of you recommend?
Do not panic yet! Before doing anything else just unplug the unit for a time. On two different occasions I unplugged my TV/VCR combo, it reset itself and I could eject the tape. I do not know how much time is really necessary as I let mine sit overnite in those two instances.
So after much frustration the first time a tape stuck which included carefully opening the chassis to look for a twisted tape, sticky labels or loose parts in and around the metal cassette holder plates, I put it back together. Now I just unplug to reset.
I am not saying this will work in every instance, but give it a try first.

Does the door open to allow the tape to come out? I have a ZHX-313 with the same problem. The door was not opening. I removed the door & it works fine.
