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!
there is a plastic clip that pushes against the tape to let it know its recordable it is at the bottom of the vcr in the front and is probably broken or came loose repair it or tape the button down but be careful taping the button down will let it record on all tapes
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.
Check that the record button on the player is not pushed in. It could be the button stuck behind the casing, or the microswitch on the main circuit board stuck against the switch mech. This should be apparent, as there would be no click when you push the record button.
Also check the REC button on the remote control.
Both of these potentially could cause the symptoms you describe.
The remote control for the later VR series does not, as you say, have an eject button.There is no alternative unfortunately.
Maybe your blaming the wrong people? Maybe your camcorder has a problem? with the power off, try pushing the eject button and the power button down together for a few seconds, but push down the eject button before the power. If that does not work, you will need to have the camcorder service and ask the servicer to please be kind to the tape as it is important. Good Luck
