Does the record button on the VCR work? If yes, then the problem is most likely related to your remote controller. Do you still have the manual? In the back of the manuals they usually provide programming codes for the remote - you could try reprogramming it or using a different code.
If on the other hand the record button on the vcr doesn't work either and also causes the tape to eject then you know the problem is on the vcr side. Is the tape write-protected, assuming it's a VHS system is the write protect tab on the tape removed?

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.

I have a Magnavox Digital Video Disc Recorder & Video Cassette Recorder , Model No. VM426MG9A. I bought the unit in August 2010. When I go to record a program, it seems OK but when it starts...


The recording set-up must have been program to record only in 5 minutes. You could play around with the remote and try to enter the record set-up. The problem with the VCR must be a worn-out belt or a dirty loading mechanism. You could try to replace the belt or clean the surface area where all the mechanism slide together or make contacts and put an small amount of recommended grease or petroleum jelly.

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....


When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian

Magnavox TV/VCR COMBO


Im thinking that maybe you a have a timer recording set. The whole unit wont function at all if you turn it on via power button (remote or unit). There should be a button at the top of the remote called 'timer set' pressing this will disable that mode and allow complete use of everything. but make sure u press timer set again when powering down, otherwise simply turning off the machine will leave the timer recording disabled.
