Hi there,

This can happen if there is a problem with the mechanism.

It will require opening the cover of the VHS player and checking the mechanism for any damage requiring repair, or you may need to make some necessary adjustments to the mechanism to prevent it from ejecting the tapes after they are inserted.

If you have some familiarity with this type of work you can attempt to fix it yourself; otherwise a local repair tech can carry out the repair for you.
