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.

Hi Donna,

Please do be frustated.

Your lovely Bose has problem with its mechanism that cause load / unload totally out of order. If you hear some noise while you turn on the bose or when you hit some buttons, it is telling us the motor still work. Now we need to check the broken gears ( or other mechanism linkage).
If you able assemble this Bose, go ahead to find and fix it mehanism ( you may need some parts replacement.

Note : Be carefully with its laser lens while power on ( avoid direct contact to your eyes).

Best luck,

Jay
