How do you get a stuck cassette out of a VCR?
Considering this, how do you get a stuck VHS out of a TV?
Sometimes if you unplug the unit and then plug it back in it will eject the tape by itself. I will try using either an ice pick or a butter knife to see if you can't gently lift the VHS tape that may give the eject button the nudge it needs to eject the tape.
Secondly, how do I remove a stuck cassette?
Insert a thin, flat-head screwdriver beneath the cassette tape inside the deck. Gently pry upward on the tape until it comes free from the tape deck's heads. Grasp the tape with a pair of needle-nosed pliers. Pull the cassette out of the deck.
Check the cable connection running from the VCR to your television set. If the cable is not completely hooked up into both devices, the audio and video signal is going to be dropped. Eject any tape inside the VCR. You are unable to correct the problem when a tape is inside the player.
