Mine does something similar (AFAIK) to a recent question.
When the power button is pressed the normal display apears and there are some mechanical noises. After about 10 seconds it shuts down, not ejecting any tape that had been inserted.
I opened the unit to see what was going on, or not.
The small motor that triggers the arms to bring the tape into position, does move a little in each direction, but not enough to move the arms. The large silver wheel (head?) spins fine.
On the bottom of the mechanical section there is a belt that's in place,and spins freely, but I can't tell if this moves when operated.
What I never see move are the white plastic cogs that rock into place to turn the spools.
The VCR does not seem to be able to eject the tape, even if turned on and "eject" is his when a tape is sitiing inside.
looks like something is not moving as it should, or is not being triggered to move.
Thanks for any advice or things to try.

Is your VCR fixed? From what you have written, I understand that you have not used the VCR for many months. And since you are hearing a whirring noise, the eject motor is working, but the belts are spoilt, and are slipping. Hence your problem. I suggest you open the top cover of the VCR and observe the eject mechanism. As suggested, you will - in all likelihood, observe that the belt driving the eject gears is slipping.
Dave, your problem is most likely with the mode sensors. I had the same symptoms and it turned out that some lubricating gel had migrated onto the electrical contacts that make up part of the mode sensing system.
If you go over to the HV-MX100 page, I've posted a guide (with photos) under the Tips section showing how I fixed it.
Too little information to give any information / help / opinion.
What actually happens? Does the Display come on properly? Do you hear any mechanical Noises? Like a motor whirring? Are you able to load a cassette into the machine? Does it get ejected automatically? As you say that the machine switches ON, I assume tyhat the Power supply cicuits are Ok, and this leaves us with the possibility that there is a mechanical problem.Is it that the machine was not used for a long operiod of months or years? If that is the case, in all probability the belts are damaged / broken / loose.
I really need more info, please.
