VCR Won't Eject VHS Tape

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?

    I am having the same problem. I have a VHS tape in my VCR yet it won't eject despite my repeated attempts at hitting the eject button. When I do hit the eject button it simply powers off the VCR.

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.

Vhs is stuck in machine. Won't play and won't eject.


There are any number of reasons why it won't play. The loading basket is jammed, the video tape has got tangled up in the mechanical section of the vcr or the loading gears are stripped. Unplug machine and remove top, [screws side and back] if the tape is spewed carefully remove by cutting it and clean tape particles, for any other problem have a technician check it out.

I have a ION VCR2PC and the power button won't stop blinking. Also when I put a VHS tape in, it turns itself on and then right off again and ejects my tape. There is not anything stuck in the ION...


If the take up spool is not turning properly it is not uncommon for the machine to eject the tape and turn off. Check the drive to that spool and correct.

Well ont eject all the way out


There is a problem with the loading basket, or the VHS tape is stuck inside and the eject mechanism can not cycle the tape out. To check this, open the lid so you can see the tape, if it is wrapped around the head and roller, hit the eject button to see if the tape is being pulled or jammed, cut the tape with scissors to free it up to see if it will pop out. If the tape is okay, it means you have a faulty loading basket.

Magnavox TV: Somehow the record button on the remote will not record VCR. It ejects the tape and does not record. Please help. Thank you.


Try Using a new VHS tape. If the new tape ejects when press recording, the recording switch inside your VCR could be defective.
Let me know if you require further assistance.
