    I Had already figured that the set was going into protection and I was hoping you website was going to give me advice on a particular component that has a history of going bad in this model of TV. I am capable of relacing components in TV sets but I don't have a schematic for this TV.

    I have the same problems as this person. It's the craziest thing, as the tv has worked perfectly for several years, up until a couple of weeks ago. I can turn the power on, and it will show a perfect picture and sound for about 10 seconds, then shut off. VERY FRUSTRATING!



    Anyone have any ideas what component(s) are going bad? I don't think the tv is worth paying a repair person to fix it, as I'm sure he/ she will charge me more than what I can puchase a new one for.

I've seen problems like this with 2 tv/vcr combo sets before. in my case each time the sensors in the machine think there's a tape jammed, and it shuts down to prevent damage. if tihs is what's going on it should actually say onscreen that it's trying to eject a tape, whether there's one in or not.

WARNING: this fix may get the tv working again, but the vcr will not be usable.
if this is what you're seeing then step one would be to remove the tape (assuming there's one there at all), now turn it back on and see that: THIS DIDN'T FIX ANYTHING! that's where step 2 comes in, you need to probe around a bit, in my case this was very much a trial and error thing, and find which mechanical parts are in the wrong positions. you want everything in the position it should be with a tape ejected. with this done you should be able to turn the tv on without getting the eject message and having the tv turn off.

I have one of these with the "shut off" problem..... sprayed some compressed air, like for computer keyboards and stuff, through the VCR door and she started working.... must have been some dust in the wrong spot,,,,

This problem is more than likely a defected mode switch! Disassemble the vcr, take mode swith apart and lightly sand contacts and clean pathway where the contacts ride with a cotton swab and alcohol, then reassemlbe.

Tv goes off because it detects there is a problem in internal circuits, goes in protected mode., and activates an internal safety switch to turn tv off.

Try first unplugging power cable for twenty minutes, see if this clears the problem.

If it does not work it means it is an internal problem, probably a faulty component of a short.

If you want to call a repairman you can use the phone number listed in the user manual.

Every television for the past 20 years has remote capability, with no exceptions. Purchase a universal remote, then there will be a piece of paper with the remote telling you how to program it for your brand of television.

The TV should be on channel 2, 3, or 4 to work correctly. There might be a small switch on the back of the VCR that lets you select the channel that it wil play back on.

Also, look on the remote control for the VCR and see if there is a button labeled TV/Video, and press that while something is playing. This switches back and forth between the TV signal and the VCR signal and it could solve your problem.
