Re: Sharp vt 2128m

You didn't say whether the unit was shutting down. Usually when there is a fault in the VCR the TV shuts down to protect the unit. Your unit has a fault in the tape system. It has a bad sensor or something in it which is triggering a fault. Sometimes kids put things in the slot and cause this kind of problem. Using a flashlight look into the slot and see if there is an obstruction. If there is try to get it out. If you are capable and understand TV safety, unplug the set and remove the back to look for any foreign objects in the set. If there are no foreign objects you will probably have to have the set looked at by a shop if you want the VCR to work. If you have composite video and audio inputs on the unit you can hook up an external DVD player with an RCA patch cable. Hook the same colors together on each unit. Yellow for video, red and white for audio. You will have to select the input through the menu. Good luck.

Sound and just a Static picture when playing a VCR tape on a Sharp 13vt-N100

More likely a damaged tape got inserted, if the video heads get blocked or even partly blocked every tape after will do this, heads can be cleaned manually (careful if not sure how to do it) or a cleaning tape MAY clear this up or not.

Always auto tunning everytime how can i solve this problem....

Could be losing settings if it is an older tv when unpluged other wise are you letting it finish the auto scan, if so then the tuner is failing.

Tv shuts off after 10 seconds

Many times, Cam Gear in VCR gets Stuck due to its age (Loose Belt most time).


The Cassette Housing is off Track (Usually Bent, or Toys inside!!!)

Solution, if you are not all thumbs,

1) UN-PLUG first!!
2) Get Alcohol Pad Ready.
3) Open Back Cover,
4) Clean the Belt on Worm gear (Usually Side of the mechanism towrds back).
5) while at it, Make sure to Dust with Air Aerosol (like ones that you use for computer)

50% of time this will Fix the Problem!!

Tv vcr combo

The best way I can think of is to REMOVE the rubber band that loads the tape into the transport unit.Be KILLFULL (careful) the band is right next to the B+ (power supply) or the A\C 120volt
( and if u can find the replacement rubber bands, buy 2 kits)
