Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

What is the model number of the player?

vhs play starts to play then shuts when I turn on ejects tape.
Electronics Technician: Nathan, Technician replied 4 months ago

Thank you,

that type of ejection issue is the result of an internal hardware defect or contamination,

You can attempt to clean it by blowing out the tape area with a can of compressed air for dusting computers (keep the can upright only so you don't get chemical propellant iinside).

If this doesn't help, you can try a specialty cleaning tape (Example cleaner) which clean more thoroughly.

If neither of these cleaning steps help, then this is more likely a hardware fault, which could include a bad head, sensor, or control board. Any of these issues would require repair/replacement.

Let me know the results, and I'll advise further, if needed.

Nathan

It was not in player itself! Fault was TV connection. TV was not receiving. I bought new DVD and TV is not taking that. So I want a refund on my card. New TV it all works.

26.00 for phone call is to much for trouble shooting. I now have warranty on all my items. I don't need to come to you for anything.

I bought new DVD and TV. Now all is working.
