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.

I will show you how to eject a stuck vhs tape. I did this on the sony slv-d300p
first, unplug it. Next, take out all the screws on the back. Take off the cover.
Locate the loading motor on the right. Turn the gears next to it. After about 5 minutes, the tape should eject. While its open, take a CLEAN piece of paper, hold it up to the drum, and rotate it with the paper against the back. after 5 minutes, take the paper off and stop spinning. the paper may be dirty. put the cover back on, and try to put in a vhs c adapter with NO vhs c in it. when you put it in, it should spit it back out.
This can be due to many faults and need a full check up but I can fill up with few tips. 1. If the cassette loads and the take up spool does not turn then the machine will shut and rewind. 2. If the take up spool rotates but then it shuts down then the reel sensor at the bottom of the forward wheel can be faulty- there are opto devices or proximity sensors/magnetic type. 3. If the drum does not rotate it will shut down as well a fault in the SERVO section. 4. Defective HALL IC can shut the switching and so the servo will shut down the processor. 5. Fault in the power section to deliver the correct voltage to the circuits/loading servo to take up. 6. Finally if the loading is not to the MODE switch point or failure of mode can make the loading to trip as it will not complete the load to the desired point.
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.
Left up the VCR tape gate,see,if the tape still in there?Yes,unplug,10 mins.replug the Tv and push the tape forward botton.Let the tape go forward about 5 sec. eject the tape take out.Grandson probally rewind the same seen to many times,causing power power shotdown mode.
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.
Try a different tape in case the take up isn't working in the previous tape.
Clean the tape heads with a tape cleaner in case there is buildup on the pinch rollers causing the tape to jam or slip.
If those solutions don't work, you should take it into a repair shop to have a closeup view as to what the problem is unless you see something obvious like a spring broken or loose or a bent piece or foriegn objects in the deck.
not to overlook the obvious but check to make sure the record safe tab is still on the tape.
(little black tab on lower left corner on back of tape)if tab is gone the machine will not go into record mode.
