JVC VCR Model # HR-VP653U will not eject cartridge

    I have a JVC VCR Model # HR-VP653U
    which will not eject the cassette.
    I have removed the cover and found information per
    removing a metal plate that covers the cassette (but was
    unable to press the required tabs allowing removal ??)

    Is there a way to eject the cartridge without removing
    the metal plate. This might be powering the eject motor,
    but connections are unknown.

    Also, what is the usual reason for failing to eject.

    Current solution would be to physically cut out the cassette
    and hope that I remove all the pieces.

    Can't you turn the loading motor pulley with your fingers? It's that
    short gear that turns the horizontal cam on the right in front of the
    A/C heads. Going one way will unload it, the other loads it. Be
    prepared to wind the video tape into the case by hand before the
    casing door shuts or it be crinkled. Another method is to remove about
    4 screws holding down the basket but then you must preserve the
    timing.

    .... If all else fails, hurl it across the room a few times!

    Usually: a slack rubber drive belt / foreign object in mechanism
    (child's toys are often a cause!) / damaged or deformed carriage
    mechanism (usually due to rough insertion of cassette) / mode switch
    dirty or worn.

    This is usually an inexpensive repair. Don't be tempted to use force
    or you amy end up causing so much damage the unit would have to be
    binned.
