VCR (Toshiba) ejects tape with cover off, keeps cycling thru with cover on

The SD-V291U model acts normal when light is on chassis with cover off, but with cover on it will eject tape, but take it back in & keep cycling through. Should I be looking at sensors?

It sounds like the emitter of a photo sensor set. The problem is the sensor are hard to find and they use infra red so you can't see the beam.

I don't have the service manual for that unit so I can't tell you where to find it. The tape will block the light when in the unit.

The part in the link is probably the part but I can't confirm as there is no picture available.

For the record, many digital and cell phone cameras can see infrared. I use mine to check remotes. If the rear-facing cam on a smart phone or tablet doesn't work, try the front-facing cam.

That was helpfull, can you tell if these sensors are plugins?

that website took me right to the exact parts place for the sensors, they have no pics, can you tell me by these pics of the sensors, it they are plugins?
On is the IR in the middle, the other the photosensor, am suspecting the one on the right is bad, as the tape catches there when trying to load.

Checkin..... Be sure to keep all your questions within this thread. You had several going on this VCR.

The sensor assembly in the first picture is soldered into the PC board.
The sensor in the second picture may have a lead on it.
