RCA VCR ejecting problem

I have an RCA VR639HF purchased in 1998 or 99 and have tried to troubleshoot the problem I'm having. I only have a basic knowledge of components in a VCR after some googling. The following occurs when a tape is inserted: Tape is engaged in drum and drum is spinning. Tape is spun "backwards" into the supply reel by the capstan/pinch roller, but in most cases (not all however) does not travel around the drum but simply gathers inside the VCR and the VCR then decides to eject the tape. Sometimes it manages to collect the tape up again, and sometimes it does not. In the other cases when the tape does not gather after inserting (manages to continue to the supply reel), the VCR only operates for about 2 seconds and things seem to tighten up (tension seems to increase) although that is observed only by a sound of the motors working harder. Then the tape is ejected. Funny thing is that some tapes get further on in this proces than others. Some are ejected as soon as it's inserted, others are wound around the drum and tension is applied by tensioners and yet others get to the stage listed above. Any suggestions as to the cause of this and possible fix??? Thanks in advance Deedum

MY RCA VCR - TIMER LIGHT ALWAYS FLASHES. WHEN i TRY TO RECORD OR TURN OFF VCR IT EJECTS TAPE.

If it plays a tape OK, then it could be that you have a timer set. In which case clear it! Or that you are using a blank tape where the slot at the back is open. If you are using a blank tape which is good and it still ejects the tape after setting the recording. Then it's likely the recording tab sensor - that detects the slot at the back of the tape - is either bent or broken.

I have apex dt-250a digital converter box and I lost the remote. Purchased RCA universal remote and I have not a clue what codes I need or how to enter them. Can you help?

I programmed a Radio Shack 5-in-one remote to my Apex DT-250. Select cabel/satelite, hold p until the light blinks twice, then enter the code 0749. It works! If your universal remote uses a three digit code, use 749. If it uses a five digit code, use 00749. I HAVE A PROBLEM THOUGH... I don't know how to scan for channels! It says "please do auto channel search", but how do I do that? Please, if anyone has this answer, let me know. I finally programmed the universal remote, but it's basically useless without being able to do an auto channel search.

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

TAPE WILL NOT EJECT

Try unplugging the player from electrical power for several minutes. Plug the player back in and try to eject the tape.

Tape keeps getting ejected

This unit requires the rubber parts to be replaced. The loading sequence is not completing properly. The VCR will eject the tape when the sequence fails as a safety measure to prevent damage to either the VCR or the tape.

Parts cost for this should not be more than $10.

Need a code for an RCA RCR312w universal remote-Emerson TV/VCR

To see RCA's code list you probably need their website but Emerson is one of several names now owned and built by Funai, who also builds Symphonic & Sylvania.
You might want to try those codes with your set.
