Ejects Tape after high pitched noise

After about 10-15 minutes in use it makes a high pitched noise and beeps then ejects the tape. When I try to insert the tape again, it will not take it and pops it back out. I get a "d" and arrow messsage, which I don't know what this means. It seems like it may be overheating. It is practically usless now that it will only run for 10 minutes at a time.

Hi friends. (Excuse my poor English). Well, i bought a SCD364 Samsung CamCoder that is physically and mechanically exactly as scd363. My scd364 also have the same problem. Because the warranty has expired, i discovered a solution. The problem ocurs due to a missing calibrati?n at tape motion mechanism then when the cam goes heat, the motor grazes with another part of the mechanism that this located very near (wax)causing a metallic noise, eating the battery and, finally the blinking "D" eject signal. I amazing when discovered that the solution is to open the tape compartment and place the opened camera infront of the air conditioning machine by 2 minutes in order to cool it. Once cold, the camera is ready to play or record again without noise and blinking "D".

WHEN INSERT THE VHS TAPE TO VCR IT EJECTS BACK... WHAT MAY BE THE PROBLEM?

Tape ejects and will not play

the tape player will first look to see that the tape threaded properly around the video and audio heads ... then it will check to make sure the tape take up reel starts to move before allowing it to continue .. if the take up reel doesn't move in a couple of seconds after insertion then the tape would spill out inside the machine and make a real mess ..in order to prevent that the machine ejects the tape.

take up reels often quit because the rubber wheels, belts or friction drive components have become hardened from age .. if the take up drive is not strong enough then it wont pull in the tape .. in order to prevent tape and machine damage the recorder ejects the tape .. that can also happen if the rubber parts have contamination or lubricant on the friction surfaces ... you can sometimes clean those wheels and parts using distilled water or special cleaning fluid .. dont use alcohol since that will remove elastomers in the rubber .. sometimes you can use a pencil eraser to clean up the friction surface by removing oxidized rubber... the proper fix is to replace the rubber take up reel drive parts if they are still available .. a rubber wheel liquid dressing is available that improves the surface for a while ..

the same problem happens in high humidity areas .. if the humidity is high enough then the tape tends to stick to the audio head and other guide parts .. if that happens then the take up reel will also stop moving .. warming or drying the tape and air (air conditioning or dehumidifier) can fix that but it takes a few hours ..

if a machine has not been run for a long time then sometimes just by cycling it many times trying fast forward and reverse can clean up the drive parts enough to get it working .. but do that on tape you can afford to lose .. be careful you dont end up with a lot of tape piled up inside the machine.

some late model high quality machines have a different drive mechanism that is more reliable .. sometimes you can find really nice machines at goodwill .. the better name brand ones may still have parts available .. the low cost units are considered disposable and are almost never worth the work that it takes to fix them unless you do it yourself .. the mechanism borders on genius but workmanship and mechanical cost cutting often resulted in machines that barely worked even when new ..

Everytime a place a cassette in the recorder...it makes a high pitched wine sound and ejects the tape...and says "remove the cassette" with 5 "beeps" following. I've read these complaints on other...


Tape mechanism problems are quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.

Tape ejects after playing for about 30 minutes

it could be dirty pinch rollers causing the tapes to tighten and be ejected. try fast forarding the tape to the end and rewinding. if this does not cure the problem, run a wet cleaner tape through.

Sony SLV-940HF automatically ejects tape.

1st try a different tape.
If it's the same, listen carefully for unusual noises, clunks, grinding, etc. when the tape goes in. Is something binding?

With the tape out, look inside the door, see if you can spot anything in there that shouldnt be there such as a small toy, money, playing card, sandwich, bits of food? Those are the usuals.

Turn the vcr upside down and holding the tape door open, tilt it so if there was a foreign object in there, it would fall out.

TAPE EJECTS WHEN I PUSH THE RECORD BUTTON

Simple solution.In all probability the Erasure prevention Tab on the cassette is broken. Just paste a Scotch tape on the broken Tab and try again.

A beeping noise goes off, when i put in a tape, like it starts beeping then ejects it out, and the screen shows "remove casset", ive already tried the dry video head cleaners, but it ejects that tape back...

Does the unit say anything about moisture? This sounds like a moisture fault. Leave the unit open for a day in a dry area and try it. If it is moisture and everything is OK this should solve your problem. If it doesn't solve your problem you could have a bad moisture detector. This is a small square metal looking device near the video drum with two wires hooked to it. It's job is to protect the camcorder and keep it from damaging tapes when moisture is present in the unit. The simplist way to verify if it is defective is to jump a wire across the two connections and try the unit. If it works this is your problem and you will need it replaced. A good repair shop should be able to do it for about $50 US. Two websites which give free estimates are http://www.videotech.com and http://www.camcorderrepair.com Good luck.
