    JVC 400 Super VHS camcorder will not eject. It ate one tape and would not disgorge for 3 years. Now it has swallowed another and, after ruining a tape with not one minute usable, will not eject. Solution so far has been to give up and buy a Samsung disk cam.
    We recharged and reconnected the battery, unscrewed the door and peeped in, coaxed and repowered. All it did was go into some paranoid mode.

    I have never had this problem before. I played a tape and it ejected fine. Then we watched another one and now I can not get it to eject this one... HELP!!! It is a tape of my baby's firsts :(

Panasonic VHS PlayPak tape is stuck inside

I've only seen one of these, but I seem to remember there was a manual release that would let you unwind and open it. I cant find any documentation for this thing online or I might be of more help.

How do you use the Panasonic PV-P1 Vhs C Adaptor?

I do not know if this is the permanent solution, but I just rewound the tape to the beginning and ejected it. The cassette came right out of the PlayPak. I will let you know if this always works or not.

Why does the VCR ejects my tape?

The VHS PlayPak adaptor uses 1 AA battery. When you place your VHS-C tape into the adaptor and close the cover, you will hear the motor running and the red piece on the adapter will move inside. Check the placement of the battery and make sure the clear shrink-wrap has been removed from the battery.
