Tape eject

I have an Emerson VCR. Its 6years old. As soon as I put a tape in it ejects it. Could it be the age? Or is there something else I should look at? Thank You

I guess if you are handy you could open it and look inside while inserting your tape. You’ll probably see incredibly flimsy looking plastic wheels, pulleys, and levers and what not. Emerson wasn’t exactly high on the quality list. Almost any VCR only unit you find in stores these days will be junk.

Do make sure that the specific tape you tried isn’t jammed up. I assume you’ve tried more than one.
