As I told you, when the tv main chip detects a problem, it force the TV in protected mode, and activates an internal safety switch to turn tv off.
This is why TV goes off in ten seconds.

when this happens TV must be taken apart and inside component tested and eventually replaced.

The technician will test the inside of your TV starting from the power supply board.

If you want to do it yourself you will need experience in testing and precision soldering, otherwise call a repairman using the phone number listed in the user manual.

Tv/vcr shuts down after 5 secs.


There is likely an issue in either the primary or the secondary power supply that is causing the TV to shut down. Unless you or someone you know is good at repairing switching power supplies, there's not much you can do to save this unit.

We recently connected to Direct TV...I want to transfer some old western TV Shows I recorded on my Direct TV DVR Recorder to VCR Tape. I was told by the people at Direct TV that I would need to contact you...


You can try this: Connect your DirecTv to VCR with Red/White/Yellow cables. Then the VCR to your TV with the same type of cables. Make sure the VCR is set to the video input, not the tuner. Turn your TV to the correct video input. Get the program ready on the DVR as if you were going to watch it. Press record on the VCR and then play on the DVR. At the end of the program, press stop on both. You may have a problem with the video recording properly. Some stations broadcast with copyright protection.

Trying to connect Sharp VCA310X VCR to TEAC TV CTM5140; am only getting blue screen with audio; no picture! Have tried every possible combo with the AV cables (red, white, yellow).


I would suggest trying to change the channel, either on the tv or the vcr. Sometimes, if the channel is one off, you will get sound but not a picture. On the back of the vcr, there SHOULD be a switch to change it to either channel 3 or channel 4. You must match this up with the channel your tv is set for. I hope this helps, but if not, I hope you can get it figured out soon. Good luck! Der Strom

I've got a rank arena tv/dvd combo,I've hooked up an old vcr so we can tape tv shows,but I get sound but no picture-what am I doing wrong?


Two things. 1 Scart. 2 VCR head dirty.
The biggest cause of sound but no picture is the scart lead. The pins often fail to make a good connection and so leave you with sound only. Solution is to replace the scart lead, the better quality the better.
2 If you are playing a video and get no picture, the cause is dirt, clean the head with Servisol Video 40.

If it is not a bad soldering joint somewhere, it could be the mode switch. They can sometimes be cleaned with Servisol Video 40, but you might have to replace it.

My emerson EWV603 vcr. When I turn it on or when I insert a videocasette, the screen is blue. How do I get to the menu stuff so that I can program my vcr?


Sounds like your VCR & TV are on different channels.
The VCR's ouput is channel 3 or 4. Try turning your TV to either channel and see if you get a picture. OR try playing the tape and after 2 or 3 seconds, push the play button again for a few seconds to change the VCR's ouput channel.

Goldstar KMV-9012 (year 1990) TV/VCR Combo


This is the problem with these combo units. When the VCR has trouble (this sounds like a mechanical one) it inhibits the TV from working as well cause they share the same power supply. It needs a VCR expert to fix ya up.
I tell people all the time not to buy these combo units unless they really need the conveinience cause you get to throw away the TV when the VCR goes bad.
