I recently bought this 25inch TV with a DVD/VCR combo (side by side, not stacked) and recently had to fish out a tape, well, after fishing it out, non-violently, the colors became horribly distorted... like when I used to hold a powerful magnet to the screen and warp the colors for a few hours, this however has gone on for days. I can't think of how this could have happened, because there aren't any magnets in this house powerful enough to do that, and the speaker magnets in the tv just don't seem to have the strength to do this.
The view is like looking at the tv with bad colors in the center (sorta circular in shape), and the corners are darkened in, you can still see detail, but it's not great. I've tried fixing the colors with very weak refrigerator magnets, and at about an inch, they do fix the local colors, but the fix doesn't stay. Do I need a more powerful magnet or should I try and return it? Thanks in advance.

Assuming the machine is working correctly, there is only one reason why the picture will be distorted and that is interference.
Here are a couple of things your son-in-law may be able to check for you.
Firstly, make sure that the DVD/VCR is connected to the television using a scart lead. The DVD/VCR was probably supplied with one. It is a short cable with a large rectangular connector at each end.
If a scart lead is already being used, there may be other units connected to the tv that are causing interference. Try removing all the other units like cable tv, satellite receivers etc and see if the DVD/VCR is any better when it is the only unit connected to the tv. If it is, you will need to use a scart selector box so you can switch each unit connected to the tv separately. (Sorry I know it's getting confusing now!)
If it still isn't any better, ask you son-in-law to check through the menu on the DVD/VCR and look for a setting for Video Format. This should be set to PAL Format unless you are in North America in which case it should be set to NTSC Format.
Hope this helps, please feel free to ask me for more info if you still have problems.
Sounds as if something got bent in the loading mechanism when you freed the stuck tape. Careful examination of the loading operation with the cover off may reveal the problem, but you may require a service shop, as there are hazardous voltages present inside, even when switched off.
Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder.
You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
this combo unit as far as i know has only one power source which is in the vcr unit. if the vcr has a problem it affects the tv likewise. i beleive u did removed the tape, but unfortunately you misaligned the mechanism of the vcr which will in turn sense an error causing the automatic shuts off of the vcr and likewise the tv. u need to bring it to a qualified service technician if u dont know anything about this.
