When I try to tape a program to the vcr, the tape ejects when I press record. I unplugged it as suggested in the manual and tried again. The dvd works fine.

Check the record switch in the video recorder. The thing that pushes on the tab on the video tape! If bent or broken, your VCR will assume that the blank tape has no tab and thus eject it, as though it was a protected tape!

Vhs tape ejects when pressing record

1. Rejected tapes on a VHS recorder is due to a dry belt that is the transfer belt on ejection tray is worn and needs replacement.
2. Because VHS recorder are now not so prevalent and there are so few repair shops specializing in there repair due to parts acquirement it may be best to get a new recorder.
3. Addressing the belts. The belts usually grips a pulley which in turn turns a gear that moves the ejection tray forwards/backwards when given a certain signal on from the control board. This could also be a worn gear from constant use of the load/ reloading of VHS tapes.
I hope this helps.

Record button does not work I press the record button and ejects the tape

The sensor switch which pushes against the record tab on the tape is either bent out of shape, or broken. Therefore the video recorder thinks that the tape you put in is a pre-recorded or protected tape, thus ejects it.

Samsung v7000 DVD/VCR .....VCR ejects tape when record is pressed

Does this happen with other tapes? If so then the micro switch could be stuck in the open position, try to give it a clean with a blast of air duster first then check the contacts on the switch. If it is happening with just this specific tape the the record tab (although in place) may be "soft" try putting a piece of tape tightly across the tab & try to record.

Try Using a new VHS tape. If the new tape ejects when press recording, the recording switch inside your VCR could be defective.

Eject light comes on after I start playing the tape

ksmitheram,

I had the same problem with my camcorder just awhile ago. This can reflect a low battery. Try plugging in the camcorder for a couple of hours without using it. Then try recording or playing back the tape with it plugged in. Unplug it and check again. If this does not work you may have to replace the tape head.

I need to record a show

You have to make sure the channel on the vcr is set to 04 and the channel on your tv is set to 03. That's how mine works.
