You will have to disassemble the player enough to get access to the adapter and free it up. Once the adapter is free, you will have to troubleshoot it to determine whether it is damaged or defective and whether the tape can be played.

I have a couple VHS-C tapes that drag

This may be caused by a faulty adapter. 1. try playing in the camera. 2. try a different tape. 3. try a different adapter.99% this is a problem with the adapter or the tape. It really sounds like the tape isn't turning freely, which can be caused by a brake sticking, or spindle in the tape or adapter.

I bought a panasonic cassette adaptor for my vhs-c tapes . it says svhs adaptor on the front of the box .will the ordinary vhs-c tapes fit in it and does the door open on the front or is it loaded from the...

You don't specify the adapter you have, but most load from the top. The main thing here is that VHS and VHS-C are both the same size of tape. Whether they are recorded in SVHS mode or not will not affect the adapter, just whether or not you get a picture. Theadapter only allows you to put a compact cassette (VHS-C) into a standard VHS VCR. The adapter will require batteries to allow it to place the VHS-C cassette tape into the proper position for use in the VCR.

VHS player ejects the adaptor

Please check to see it the battery on your adapter is worrking fine. Or else replace the battery . If mechanical type load up the tape before you load the cassette to the player. If this ejects again the adapter is not landing well into the mechansim. cleck within the tray for any foreign bits that is preventing the adapter from loading. Also if the end sensors are detecting , use a tape to cover the inner hole of the adapter. if the tape is tight in the adaptor- check for free state by turning with the finger.
If your regular tapes are playing well then you will get the fault without much of an issue but recheck on these tips. Helpful? good day

I inserted a vhs-c tape in to my cassette adaptor and the motor started running but it won't stop. I tried to remove the vhs-c tape but the switch does not respond. I can put the cassette adaptor in the...

That may be what you will have to do, in this case, unless you can somehow get that switch to work. I don't understand why the motor continues to run, but it's probably a broken plastic piece or other gear part that's not functioning. When you take the cassette apart, try to look for any broken parts, or loose components that you can reseat. You may have to end up buying another adapter. Wish I knew more to tell you, but that's all I can think of.

Is there a VHS adapter to view tapes on TV?

The 8mm recording system is totally different to the VHS system and therefore cannot be played in a VHS player. No adaptor is available such as the VHS-C to VHS adaptor.
Sony did release a dedicated 8mm Player/Recorder many years ago although these tend to be difficult to find offered for sale. RHN

Convert NTSC VHS video tapes to DVD PAL

If you do not have an adaptor to play the tapes to a standard VHS viseo player, you can use the camera as the player by connecting the AV out to a DVD recorder. There are hundreds of models in the market, and do not worry if it is NTSC or PAL because 99% of DVD recorder accepts both.

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.
