Re: ejecting of tapes
This sounds like the sensor that when you put a tape in then it places it over the sensor saying tape in then takes tape in ready for play and band maybe streached if machine is over 1 year old open case and load tape in and see whats going on if the tape is getting through the guide loading to drumhead and look to see if drum is turning if it is and guides come out to drum then it ejects tape have a look to see if any object is jaming the pinch wheel if pinch wheel is clear then when tape is removed from loading bay use a cotton bud to clean the pinch wheel from dirt as this is the take up side and spindle then try tape again if same resaults clean the sensor where tape sits if same again screw lid down and take for repair
but if in 1 yrs warranty take straight for repair.

When a tape won't eject, the problem can be caused by several things. The most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the tape. This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution on the belt or having the belt replaced. With the cover off (be careful not to touch anything live with power) and try loading and unloading a tape. Try to find the motor and belt which operates the loading mechanism. When it "catches" as you say, try moving the belt pulley with your finger to give it a little help and see if it continues on with the operation. If it does, the belt is probably slipping. It takes more effort on the belt & pulley during an eject sequence rather than the a load sequence, so it may load fine but have trouble ejecting. Gravity and the weight of the tape is why you may not have this problem during the load sequence.
Good day It sounds to me like that 1 or more of the drive belts has lost it's tension..(meaning it's time for new belts). Another thing,..some models have a wee light bulb inside that is involved with the loading drawer..it senses that the tape has loaded properly, ..(continue towards "play tape".) If it has burned out,..the machine cannot "see" that the tape is/is not in place,.."shuts down".
Best bet to send to a repair tech for service. Have a "belt&tire kit" plus the bulb replaced...& check over the loading drawer...(a trouble area also).
Unplug the power from the combo unit and give it 30 seconds, now plug back in, sometimes this will eject the tape, if not! take the top off the machine and check to see if the tape is spewed in the mechanical section and around the video head, if yes! get a pair of scissors and cut the tape carefully to avoid damaging the video head and remove all tape deb-ri, now power up and eject the main cassette. But! if you find the cassette has loaded in place and the tape is still in the vhs cassette, this would indicate a loading problem with the main carriage, broken belt, bad idler assembly and possibly sensor issues.
I just had the same issue except I left my camera out in the rain. My camera is a DCRF-HC32 Sony Handicam. There is a reset button on the side of the camera where the eject door is. Take a paper clip and hold the reset button in for 5-10 secs. The camera will beep, power on, open the door and it ejected.
you need to clean the vcr with a cleaner that you can buy at a store. If that doesnt work then you need to take the 4 or 5 skrews out that hold the top on and look at the motor and gears move while you put a tape in and you should spot the problem pretty quick. It'll be with the round metal wheel that turns the tape.
Hi. This is from Dells site regarding automatic ejection of tape once inserted:
The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive reads and writes DLTtape
VS1 cartridges. The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape drive can read - but
not write - DLTtape™ IV cartridges written using the DLT1/VS80 format. NOTE: The PowerVault 110T DLT VS160 Tape
drive automatically ejects any other cartridge types and any cartridges
whose format it cannot read. Make sure all cartridges that you want to use
for writing are DLTtape VS1 cartridges.
Perhaps your cartridge is improperly formatted or is of the incorrect type?
The flip up cover over the cassette housing has the "eject" button built into it. Sony has had problems with the flexible harness that connects this door to the camera body. The harness rubs against the metal frame of the camera and causes various malfunctions such as the constant eject symptom you are having.
Sony service in Laredo, TX can repair this for you, it is no big deal.
Good luck, this is a nice camera!
The tape might be wrapped around the head or the capstan. The mechanism is delicate so you risk more damage by trying yourself - check with some of the repair shops on the Fixya home page for prices to remove the tape.
