Are you on Recording Mode ?

T.REC is Timer Recording Mode
VCR stands by for recording. During timer recording standby mode,. the VCR normal operation should not be used (messes the recording). That's why it's asking you to cancel it.

My VCR unit only plays a tape for a few seconds, it stops,turnsoff entire system and ejects tape. I have tried to clean it. Is there a fix for this problem?


If the take up reel is not properly winding the tape the machine will shut down. U need to address that issue to resolve the problem.

Vcr ejects after 10 seconds


The tape is wound tight or is not wound evenly creating friction. There is a safety feature designed into the vcr that senses that there is too much tension. Fast forward all the way then rewind all the way. This is the way it was in the 70's 80's for cassette tapes and vhs tapes. If the tape still ejects then check the belts.

Our Toshiba VCR won't play tape. It ejects tape after a few seconds.


If you are trying to play older VHS tapes, you may have to run them through some fast forward-rewind cycles to condition them and relieve stress

My Toshiba VCR & DVD video recorder model D-VR4XSU won't eject a DVD disc from the player, neither by pressing the eject button on the remote nor by the eject button on the players console.


A temporary solution would be to use a paperclip to eject it; usually, any disk drive has a little hole that a paperclip can be stuck into which forces it to eject.

Hi my toshiba d-vr660 will not play video tapes the tape ends up on a sideways angle and then ejects help?


I think by your description that you have a bad loading basket, it might be repairable but don't be surprised if they suggest a new one (if it is available)

Says blank DVD-RW is not formatted, then formats -- then error


I have same TOSHIBA D-VR4XSU VCR/DVD RECORDER. According to the
manual, you (COULD) can use for recording: DVD-RAM, DVD-RW and DVD-R (see page 50). WRONG!!! I bought all 3 types of discs, but after few
weeks I got same experience you got now. Just type DVD-R works. The other
types were - wasted money and a lot of time trying to finalize the disc. I had to
throw all into the garbage. Try DVD-R and you should?? be O.K.

When done the machine turns off automatically, and you turn it onagain. Every time mine has stopped working this has fixed it. This might work with yours as well.

Vcr eating and/or ejects tape


Tape heads should be cleaned first and gears lubricated. This job can be done at home if you purchase lithium grease and are very careful not to get it on the heads or spools. Greasing should only be done if you are confident in opening it up. Otherwise, seek a cheap professional.

System Error


FYI...the best suggestion I've seen is to hold the channel up and play buttons simutaneously....thereby causing the machine to return to the "factory initialized" state. So far so good for me. We'll see. photog1
