    The VCR is a Toshiba M-683. I get a blue screen in the brief time it is on, but nothing else works, either from the front panel or from the remote.

    Frankly, I was hoping for something more specific to my Toshiba M-683 and the problem of it turning itself off after about 8 seconds, as opposed to a link to another (free) website.

  • g35tommyt Sep 13, 2008

    I inserted the tape and the VCR turned off. When I attempt to turn it back on, it only stays on for about 8 secords, then turns itself off.

  • g35tommyt Sep 17, 2008

    Manually cycled the mechanism and got the tape to eject. Tried another tape and had the same problem. Since I had (wisely) left the cover off, I was able to eject that one.



    I'm thinking maybe an inexpensive new VC player is going to be the best solution. Any thoughts?

Some thing wrong in mechanism of vcr. Please take off top cover of vcr and turn back loading motor manually to eject cassette. Loading motors in VCRs usually rotates worm gear to start loading / unloading in vcr mechanism. in your case, it seems loading motor / worm gear is stuck. I hope, rotating manually will release it and vcr will start work normally.

    VCR turns off itself is not problem. Its just caused by stuck mechanism and micro processor of vcr waits for any mecha movement and then shuts down power to avoid any damage.

    Yeah, you can get another vcr on ebay etc in less then $25 so its better choice.

Hi
My guess is that the tape got wrapped around the capstan shaft so it
can't be pulled back into the cassette so that it can be ejected.
Somebody will have to disassemble part of the camcorder and manually
unwind the tape from around the shaft. Unless you are nimble of
hands and fingers, have a well lit work surface and possess jewelers
tools, that job is best left to a repair person.
thanks..........

Vcr ejects after 10 seconds


The tape is wound tight or is not wound evenly creating friction. There is a safety feature designed into the vcr that senses that there is too much tension. Fast forward all the way then rewind all the way. This is the way it was in the 70's 80's for cassette tapes and vhs tapes. If the tape still ejects then check the belts.

I put a tape in and I hear a loud clicking noise and the VCR doesn't play the tape and turns itself off after 8-10 seconds.


first, try another tape. if it does the same thing the vcr is out of alignment. many times a broken lever inside the vhs tape can cause the vcr to shut down.

Dubbing from VCR to VCR


you should just have to plug the first vcr using the RCA jacks,(yellow,red,white). into the second vcr. so the output from the first vcr to the input of the other. then if you want to watch it while its recording though its not necassary you just plug the video/audio out of the second vcr into the tv. So the first vcr you play the tape in and the second you put the blank tape in and press record.
Thats all there is to it.
Let me know how it goes.
Thanks,
Lee

Some tapes will start and immediately shut down


the vcr is on threshold of belt life. try replacing (or cleaning with alcohol) the take-up reel belt. The vcr has a built-in time-out feature to protect the video tape. if it takes too long for things to happen, shut-down occurs.

TV keeps shutting off after 10 seconds


It's possible from what you described that your center LED or prisim was broken when the tape was extracted. Like many others these units depend on a series of startup checks and one being the tape path. On the play table of the VCR is a center prisim/LED and two light sensitive diodes on either side of the tape loading assembly. If these diodes do not detect the infared beam the unit will go into shutdown. I'd check there and let me know. Bill

Tape stuck and tv turns off


With the set unplugged remove the back and extract the main board. You'll find a metal cover over the tape housing area that is easily removed by removing some screws holding it to the board area and manipulating some wired over it... You should then be able to see the tape and what's hanging it up. If you need to unwrap tape from the pinch roller or around the guides do so carefully. When it all looks free you can either manually crank the load motor assembly to eject the tape or put it back together enough to plug it in and press eject. If you do the later be VERY careful... Good Luck! Bill
