How to you get a vhs tape out of a tv-vcr combo?

again, this is stuck inside a tv-vcr combo. the vcr no longer works and the tape is stuck in there b/c the buttons no longer respond to ejecting a tape. we still use the television every day. any advice on how to get it out appreciated

Robert’s right – you need to take the cover off the machine and carefully free the tape. Even if the tape hasn’t snarled itself inside the machine, you wouldn’t believe how convoluted the tape path is in ‘normal’ operation. Good luck with it!

Source(s): We have a *lot* of VHS tapes, and all of them are slowly deteriorating with time. Transferring the tapes to DVD is not a trivial task, so we put together a web page at to discuss how best to save the tapes so we can enjoy them well into the future.
