My emerson EWV401 vcr keeps turning off after a few seconds. how do i fix this?

Sounds like a problem with the power supply, due to age, or power outages/surges. Best off buying a new vcr since they are really inexpensive.

Vcr does not run

Try changing the channels on the VCR itself. If you can do that, then it would indicate a problem with the VCR's remote. If you are still unable to change channels on the VCR manually, it could indicate a circuitry problem, for which you will have to get the VCR serviced.

HR-A37U remote won't work

It's not unusual for remote controls to stop functioning either partially or fully. To determine where the problem is, you will have to go through a process of elimination. The easiest way to find out where the problem lies is to purchase an inexpensive universal remote at a nearby store. Try the different codes and see if you can activate the VCR. If it works, you have the option of keeping the remote or returning it for another one if you cannot access all the functions of the VCR. I have seen exact replacements online for under $20.
If it does not work then the trouble is most likely in the VCR itself, unless the proper code could not be found in the universal remote, in which case you need to try another brand or model.
The only other suggestion I have for you would be to unplug the VCR from the AC power for at least 5 to 10 minutes and then plug it back in and try the original remote again.
I hope this helps, good luck.

TV image goes off when VCR power turned on

The vcr is connected in between the antenna (or cable) and the tv, and when it turns on its tuner takes control of the signal. Either:
1) press the VCR/TV button on the VCR to let the signal go stright thru
2) Tune the VCR to the channel you want to watch and set the TV to the VCR's input.
3) If you use a coax cable connection to the TV, try switching the VCR to the other channel (3 or 4, switch in the back)
4) Change the TV connection to RCA cables on the A/V inputs.
Hope Ya Fix It!
