A couple of possibilities: One, if the mechanism is gear driven, it may be "out of time." Gear positioning is critical, and if a gear has slipped a tooth or more out of time, the unit will not work. Often, there are marks on the gears which must be lined up in a particular mode, as specified in service literature. Also, you may have a broken gear. Second: Some other component, perhaps a part of the tape carriage (mechanism which holds the tape) is broken. VCRs of the last 10+ years are made poorly, prone to break, disposeable, unlike those of the '80s which were usually built like tanks. Unless this is a high dollar VCR, repair isn't recommended, even if you can find a repair shop.

How to remove a cassette stocked in a vhs machine?

If the VHS tape is stuck inside, and when you push the eject button, it wont come out. Then you need to unplug the VHS player, take it apart so that you can access the inside. See how the tape is stuck inside and start to take it out the best you can. Once you get it out you may have to throw away the tape if it is messed up badly, if not wind it back up. Put the VHS player back together once you get the tape out. Then try to play another VHS tape and see if it works again. If not, it may be a bad VHS player or it may be the tapes. Hope this helps. I have had to take mine apart to take a tape out, so that's how I know

My Panasonic VHS Player Model PV-V4020 is locked up so I cannot insert a new tape.

This will be some form of physical damage to the carriage mechanism, that holds the tape. Sometimes it's a simple thing like the flap getting stuck. But often it's a broken piece of plastic.

Power off when inserting vhs tape

I had this problem when copying an old family vhs tape. I had to unscrew the top of the magnavox to access the vhs tape. Then, I gently removed the tape and replaced the cover. After winding the tape back, I put it in the player and immediately pushed fast forward for about 3 seconds before hitting play followed by d.dubbing. I was able to make a copy of the tape and did not damage my original.

My daughter just had a problem with her Philips tv. It has a built-in vhs player on it, and when she put in a tape, the tv started turning off. I turned it on and got a blue screen that says 't-eject'. I...

It is possible that the Tape mechanism is struck and so is shutting off the power to the unit. Since the power is shared it is possible that the cut off to the set is due to the error in the VHS player.
So in this case you will need to remove the VCR and get the entangled or the stuck up cassette from the player so as to reset the error. Also if there is a mechanical issue to the player must be checked.
