A video tape has become stuck in my Mitsubishi VCR

A video tape has become stuck in my Mitsubishi HS-M58 VCR. The machine powers up OK, but then just powers down itself. It will not eject, play or FF/RW...note the machine was perfect before insertion of this dubious tape. Thanks

Hs-u54 vcr has snow on video


Head amplifier circuit/module could be the problem in your case. You could also check the power supply to see if any electrolytic caps are out of tolerance or have changed value and replace them if necessary.
~
Here are a couple of examples of similar VCR issues I've had; some years ago, I had a Panasonic NV-F70A, with snowy video playback, and, after a lot of investigation and exhaustive testing it turned out to be the video head amplifier module that was the problem (not the heads themselves which were new) - replacing the plug-in aluminium-cased module fixed it and restored the video picture as well as the stereo audio output and flying head erase. Power supply was OK and the whole VCR good to go.
~
With another Panasonic (NV-J11A), it was several out of tolerance electrolytic capacitors in the power supply (another metal-cased plug-in module) that caused the snow on screen, erratic tape counter, and slightly wobbly audio. Head amp was OK in this one. I replaced every electrolytic in the PSU - and after plugging the module back in and turning the VCR on, the playback picture and tape counter were soon restored to normal - after some soak-testing, the machine went home.

You may not need to do anything to or with your machine's power supply at all but it doesn't hurt to check anyway so that you can rule it out as a possible problem source.

E-2 error what does that mean


E2 means: Loading motor locked in the unload direction. Usually(not always) happens with a going bad VCR tape on the rewind. Tape is becoming too difficult to rewind and/or VCR is getting tired. Eject tape. Discard tape as soon as practical, new tapes are cheap. To clear: Hold power on/off button for 8 seconds.

I have a Mitsubishi HSU48. The tape is stuck in the VCR. I cannot get it out. Do you have any suggestions


I had this problem with this specific machine. These answers have all been general to any VCR. The Mitsubishi HS-U448 has its motor underneath the machine. You don't have to remove the top cover at all. Just remove the bottom plate and spin the motor (the correct direction) to completely eject the tape.

Your front display is worn out, it has gotten gassy. Therefore the luminance level is low & the part is no longer available.

More likley it's not the little white thingy but the belt that drives it. Take the bottom off and get that broken belt out and runn down to the VCR / Tv repair shop and see if they have a new belt

When a tape won't eject, the problem can be caused by several things. The most common problem is that the belt that operates the eject mechanism is slipping and not allowing it to eject the tape. This can be fixed by either using a re-grip solution on the belt or have the belt replaced. Belts are inexpensive but sometimes difficult to get to. Most of the repair expense will be in the labor. Unplug the unit and take the cover off. Hopefully there will be enough clearance so you can get to the tape. Try to find the motor and belt that is responsible for operating the eject mechanism. The motor will look like a shiny cylinder, about the diameter of a quarter and will have a plastic pulley attched to the shaft. You can rotate the pulley and belt with your fingers and manually eject the tape. If the tape is around the spindles and video head, you will need to manually move the mechansim that retracts the spindles and returns the tape to the cartridge. While you may be successful in getting the tape out, you need to find out what caused the problem in the first place. Putting in another tape will most like become stuck again unless the problem is identified and resolved. Also look for a broken spring or cracked gear (missing teeth) in the eject mechanism. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance Good luck! - Jim
