TV/VCR eject issue

I own a Sylvania SSC130 TV/VCR, and something happened to the VCR portion that has effected the TV. It all started when I put in a tape to watch, and it got stuck, and suddenly the TV shut off. I turned it back on, and it tried to eject, and it was making horrible noises. It wasn't succesful in the ejection process. I had to take the thing apart and remove the tape. I removed the tape, but it's still trying to eject. When it tried, it failed, and thus, shut off. So it appeared that I had fixed the problem after messing around for a while. The tape ejects just fine, however, after it's done ejecting, it appears it continues to attempt to eject. After a while of that, it shuts off. I've tried unplugging it for a while, and plugging it back in, but it still tries to eject on powerup. The VCR is pretty much useless at this point. The glass lense tube broke off. I still have it, but I don't plan to use the VCR again after I fix the problem. I don't know what the problem is, and I'm having trouble locating the mode switch. That could give me some answers. It has displayed the word "eject" on screen with a few different letters following it at different times. I've seen R, T, and C. What do those mean? I've never really dealt with this sort of thing before, so please excuse my lack of knowledge.
