T.V. shuts off when I try to play a DVD in the built-in player

My Magnavox T.V. has a built-in DVD player and a built-in VHS player. Neither player will work. When I try to play a DVD, the screen flashes and the entire tv shuts off. I've unpluged the satellite cable to see if thats the problem and it still won't work. I've tried putting the tv on different channels (3, 4) and that doesn't work either. Help!!!

    The VCR player on the tv works fine. However, anytime I try to do anything with the DVD player, the entire tv powers off.

    I earlier said both did not work, because my fiance told me that. I later found out the VCR player works fine. I tried what you suggested, but when I loaded the VCR and hit stop, it stopped like it should. Its only when I try to do anything with the DVD player that the t.v. flashes and shuts off. Its not instant though....when I hit the play button, the t.v. appears to change to DVD mode. Then after about five seconds, the t.v. shuts off.

Try putting in a VCR tape let it load and hit stop. If the set stays on it's the VCR deck causing the problem. It will be either be bad sensors or LED or possibly the mode switch. Let me know if this helps.

    First you say "Neither player will work."
    Then you say "The VCR player on the tv works fine'

    Which is it ?

    Did you do what I suggested ?

    The timing on the VCR will shut down the TV .

    Nothing in the DVD will shut down the TV.

    I'm just trying to help you.

We have a Philips Magnavox Model #TP3284C101 TV and plugged in a Durabrand DVD Model #DVD1002 player to it. It will only play in black and white on this TV. But when we plug the DVD player into another TV...


It sounds like you have a standard problem.
Is the TV you are using, that gives the black and white picture, the same as the other ie, both NTSC or PAL and both on RGB or Y-C or S-Video?
Check to see what is required and set the DVD player accordingly.
Hope that helps.

Toshiba 26AV502U (new) video dropout if VHS tapeis not perfect


Had problem checked by local outfit called "Circuit Pro"; their analysis was compatibility.
Actual answer was that the Toshiba required a better quality input from "any" VHS source.
I finally took a "less than perfect" VHS tape with me when I returned the Toshiba TV to the store and demonstrated the problem to one of the TV sales people. He played the VHS tape through a display VHS/DVD player to three different brands of TV. The picture was often "black screen" on a Toshiba, but was merely poor quality on the other two brands. I upgraded to a Sony KDL26M4000 from the Toshiba 26AV502U.

My tv shuts off


I picked one up in the trash 2004 model 27MDTR20/17. I turn it on and it shuts off. I opened the back and pulled the DVD/VHS board out. I removed a metal cover on the VHS housing (three screws). There was a broken clear plastic rod and one of the gear stop plastic cords (on the left side) was ripped where it attached to the front metal bracket through a hole in the plastic tab. The plastic chord has a piece of white felt like material attached to it. I epoxied the plastic rod back and put a piece of tape over the broken plastic end of the cord. The tape was folded over the edge of the plastic and then wrapped back on itself. I trimmed the outline with a scissor and poked a new hole in the end where the original hole was under the tape. I attached the chord back to the metal bracket. The problem was still there, the power would go off after a few seconds and the VHS gear train would make a slight motion like it was getting stuck. I then removed the mounting screws on the VHS housing and lifted it off the board slightly (ther are 2 screws that need to be removed from the far side also). There is a small gear under the right side of the board that was not aligned with another gear. The alignment is between a pin on one gear and a hole on the other. After I aligned them I reassembled the unit. The power stays on now only if I leave a tape in it but the DVD and VHS seem to work. My problem now is that I can only select AUX and channel 2! On well thats my next battle. Good luck.

Hi channyfanny. Have you tried beating on the set, LIGHTLY!!!
After it has shut off??? If it tries to come back on when you do this, it may be a bad solder joint or cracked component in the tv, if not, it may be a faulty component in the shutdown circuit, or a high voltage problem.

What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill
