You will need to rotate the gears manually with power cut off to get the vcr to return to the "unloaded" position.

Its fairly simple, find the motor and rotate the gear its connected to into a direction, if noting happens try the other direction, look for locks / switches that might be preventing it from moving if its still stuck.

Once on the unloaded position, plug it in and see if the unit works properly by loading a casette.

The main problem is that you have an antique dinosaur that is well past its sell by date.

Here is an answer, but the age is the problem. An 86" Ultra HD 4K flat screen set would greatly improve your viewing enjoyment, though not the effect on your pocket!
