There are any number of reasons why it won't play. The loading basket is jammed, the video tape has got tangled up in the mechanical section of the vcr or the loading gears are stripped. Unplug machine and remove top, [screws side and back] if the tape is spewed carefully remove by cutting it and clean tape particles, for any other problem have a technician check it out.
You might be able to unbolt the two halves of the VCR to remove the tape, but it depends on the VCR type and how it's stuck. You might end up having to get it serviced, or just getting a new VCR, as I can almost guarantee the tape is probably damaged beyond recovery, unfortunately.
the tape won't come out then it means you will have to manually remove
the stuck tape. This involves you disassembling the unit in order to
help/assist the player get the stuck tape out.
Turn of the unit
and remove from the wall, get a Philip screw driver, use it to remove
all the screws from the unit and take it apart.
Open the cover and you will see the stuck tape and what's hooking or preventing it from coming out/ejecting.
plug the unit, and turn it on. Press the eject button, as the tape
tries to come out, support it with your hand so that it can come out.
if it happen that the cassette tape has coiled inside the unit,
carefully free the coiled tape and the press the eject button.
the moment you disassemble the player, you would see what's preventing
it from coming out, then you can free whatsoever that is making it stuck
press the eject button and the tape should come out.
Make sure the unit is turned off each time you want to remove what's making the cassette stuck.
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.
