    Default Tape stuck in VCR

    My son borrowed a VHS tape from a friend, and now it's stuck in the

    VCR. It's a VCR/TV combo, and has never had a tape stuck in it before.

    Or course it is a few years old, and out of all our tapes, it would

    have a borrowed tape stuck. I am so reluctant to take it to a repair

    shop because the repair will probably cost more than the TV is worth.

    I just want to have a tape to give back. Does anyone have any

    suggestions? Thanks.

    Default Tape stuck in VCR

    Most of vcrs have a top cover that is pretty easy to take off with a

    screwdriver, you may be able to get to the tape from the top and get

    it untagled.

    Default Tape stuck in VCR

    Our aging VCR has taken to a regular diet of eating tapes. We just unplug the VCR, take the top off (the screws are on the bottom) & carefully work the tape out of the mechanism, then hold the flap of the machine open while taking the tape out off the machine. The tape will still be partly unwound. There is a little button on the side of the tape that you can push in to lift the front flap. While you hold the flap open, you can turn the one of the reels to get the tape wound back into the case.
