I have exactly the same problem-tapes will not eject on either deck and I keep getting "ERROR" on front display. I've been asking for help on this for awhile now. I've taken the cover off and can't make sense of anything inside. Is there a video or manual available somewhere where there are pictures describing/showing the parts involved, so I can make sense of it and not ruin anything? Thanks!

1. Check to see if a tape is jammed inside (see 284 Extract a Jammed Videotape). 2.
Try changing the video input and/or output source. Many VCRs have two
ways to receive and send a video signal (coaxial and video direct). If
that works, try changing the cable for the other method to see whether
you need a new cable. 3. Clean tape heads (see How to Clean VCR Heads). 4.
Open VCR and inspect any belts that are accessible (see 284 Extract a
Jammed Videotape). A drive belt may be broken or loose.
If tapes are getting stuck / enmeshed inside the machine, itis 90%
probability) a mechanical problem. Change the Belts, clean all rollers,
idlers, and braking pads. I would suggest that you also replace the Capstan Pinch Roller.
