Question about Zenith VR4127 VCR

1 Answer

VCR continually tries to eject the tape after it is inserted

When you insert a tape the VCR immediately ejects it. After ejecting the tape, the VCR still continues to try to eject. After repeatedly trying to eject "nothing" it errors out. Sometimes when you repeatedly try to insert a tape, many, many times, it will eventually take in the tape.

If you have cleaned the head with a good head cleaner and you are still having a problem...the belt is probably worn. A good head clean should fix the problem.

When I insert a tape, it is immediately ejected. it had been working fine until this evening.


Probably you are inserting a tape taht has it;s safe tab removed, and you unit is set to record.
Put some clear tape over the hole and try it.
Or try a different tape.

Power goes off when a cassette is inserted. Tried cleaning heads but it won't even run that. When power is turned back on the cassette is immediately ejected.


Good day!!!

Most common problems
  • VCR refuses to FF or REW and shuts off.
  • VCR shuts off entering PLAY or REC or at random during PLAY or REC.
  • VCR eats tapes.
  • VCR doesn't accept tapes or ejects them without cause.
  • Sound is wavery, fluctuating, or muddy.
The cause for all of these is very often a bad idler tire or other dirty, worn, or tired rubber parts

When I try to record a VHS tape or play one it continually ejects the tape as soon as TV is turned on.


Try turning the TV on first and then inserting the tape into the VCR. You may be getting a small voltage spike that is causing your VCR to eject the tape.

Tape stuck in VCR, won't eject.


you posted 2 different problems here...
to answer this one ". The tape is stuck, won't eject and I'd like to get it out without damaging the VCR unit."...open unit, find motor that moves tape ejector and spin that motor by hand (power off)

the other problem, "the VCR will not insert a tape. It keeps rejecting it."...open unit and fully turn ejection motor until home position is reached...this is a home sensor switch not being activated.

the tape carriage is probably stuck, or something stuck inside blocking the tape sensor.

Tape Ejects Immediately


There are normally 2 causes. One is some obstruction in the tape path. Please open the cover of the VCR and shake and see for foriegn objects. Nothing??? Then there is one more possibility - Belts are loose.. Check the Tape Loading motor belt.Is it slack? This can happen over time.Change the belt.
