Stuck halfway inside could indicate that the actual tape is stuck in the capstan/heads. It may have never fully released from the mechanisms and returned to casing. Basically it ate your tape. You could try taking the cover off the unit and manually and carefully remove jammed tape. Unplug the unit first. Hope this is helpful.

Vhs tape wont go in all the way


Hello, Shirley -

I suspect something is stuck inside the video tape slot. The video tape player will need to be opened to determine if something is stuck inside.

Years ago, when my niece's son was a toddler, my niece and her son were going to visit me, so I child proofed my home, including installing covers to all of the electric outlets which were in "toddler range." After they left, I was unable to insert a video tape in my machine. I took it to a business to have the machine repaired. The repair technician found an electric outlet cover had been inserted in the video tape slot and that blocked any video tape from being inserted.

If you can, with a flashlight, open the flap of the video tape slot and peer inside. Perhaps you can see some foreign object which might have been pushed inside.

You can chose to remove the video tape player cover yourself (ignoring the "do not open" warnings which may be printed on it) to see if something is stuck inside, or you can take it to a TV / Video repair business and pay to have the video tape player checked out (and perhaps repaired, if needed.)

Best wishes.

Vhs is stuck in machine. Won't play and won't eject.


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.

Cassette does not eject


Either the tape is jamed round sound head, or the door is stuck with somthing like a handle of the case on side of camera, but sounds like tape stuck, run film backward a little (not forward) as more tape will get stuck in forward motion.

Tape seems to be stuck to itself, I can't free it up


I think you are refering to the tape itself in the VHS cassette and it not being stuck inside the Video itself!
So if you are... don't use the spray... video cassettes have a brake system inside them. It sometimes breaks. If you turn the cassette upside down so you can see the white reels, inbetween them near the bottom (where the side label goes) you will see a small hole. If you put a pen inside it should release the reels so you can turn them with your finger. If they don't turn it may be broken. In which case... Get hold of a blank tape, the same length as yours. Carefully remove the screws (5) on the bottom. See how it's put together. Once you understand how the tape moves etc. Take out the reels with the tape, then dismantle your video and put the reels with the old tape into the new holder. It should work as good as new.
PS try not to touch with fingers the tape.

There is a little plastic piece on the tape and it is getting stuck, you have to maually move this piece, witha paper clip or something else. it might break the piece off, but that is the only way I know to get it out.

Tape will not eject


If you remove the power while the basket is halfway up, you should be able to remove the door. Then look to see if the reels are turning when you try to elect the tape. The error code you are getting indicates the reels are not turning for some reason. You can ssist the reels turning as the tape is ejected if you have a small plastic pick or a toothpick into the reels to assist the reels turning and tehn you may be able to remove the tape.

How can I remove a stuck video tape from out of a VCR?


You will have to take the cover off. ( un-plug the AC cord)
Look for the loading motor at the back right side.
Rotate the motor and you will see the tray moving thru its cycle to un-load the tape, it does take quite a few turns, its slow.
Let me know if you run into a problem?

Canon ZR 45 Won't Eject Tape


That would be the take up or supply reel fault. It may also be a mode position error. Try here for advice but I don't advise tackling this job without full service instruction manual for the deck. No idea of your country so try here first;
