VCR won't eject tape

    One of my two S-VHS recorders has this problem, an RCA VR695HF.

    I press the eject button and I hear a mechanism kick in but the tape
    doesn't eject. Until a couple weeks ago, it usually ejected on the
    second press (the same sound happened both presses, but the second time
    the tape came out). A couple weeks ago I had to press it 40-50 times
    before the tape finally came out.

    Some months ago I took the cover off and looked for something to adjust
    or lubricate but whatever I did didn't help (cleaned, a bit of
    lubrication here and there, blow compressed air, etc.). Using a
    different tape has no evident effect.

    Any ideas?
