I think u broke some parts in the tape loading mechnism or u misaligned the initial position of the mechanism. thats why the error is still there. some switches still activated. i suggest that u bring it to a qualified technician if u dont know anything about this.

Vcr/tv how to get the carriage unstuck


It sounds as if the drive belt or wheel that controls the carriage has perished and failed. There is normally a micro switch on the side or rear of the tray, that senses the presents of a casset. If it is closed with stikky tape or clay you may be able to simulate a casset in the machine and with manual force help the casset to open or close. alternatively a small lamp in the centre of the tray senses the tape. then you have to cover the lamp or two sensors on left and right side of the tray, to prevent detection of the broken or missing tape.

How to fix an rca vcr that auto. inserts a tape & then ejects it within seconds


There is somewhere some damage to the mechanism. It could be the carriage itself (the holds the tape) that has a fault on it, or something else in the transport mechanism of the tape. This could have sent the system out of position for the correct loading of a tape.

VHS tape is running at high speed when insert it to VCR. no playback..buttons doesnot work.


Check if the fast forward button is more inside than the rest of the buttons. May be its stuck in the ff position. After all they were just micro switches below the plastic buttons strip. The specific ff micro switch may be stuck, if I were you I would try some switch cleaning spray to loosen it. But be prepared that the control ic is busted.

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.

CASSETTE STUCK IN VCR WONT EJECT I TURN VCR ON IT STAYS


When the tape has been removed the carriage deck will still be in the wrong position. The cassette tray has to be aligned so that the timing of the tape will detect that there is a tape in the machine. At the moment your VCR thinks there is a tape still in it because the cassette tray is not in the full eject position. This can be fixed by a service technician.
