Toshiba MD13N3 13" TV/DVD COMBO powers up but will shut off

Powers up... but shuts itself off after about five seconds, long enough for a picture to show quick and sound to function and then off. Will NOT open DVD drawer. It was in surge protector, no event happened that I know of and all other appliances on same surge protector are fine. Still, I tried in direct wall outlet change. Tried keeping it off and unplugged for hours and then replugging it in to see if it would reset. No change. IT is holding my DVD Hostage. Please help!... Thank you so much. If it cannot be repaired how do I force the door open safely to get DVD OUT?

This is a hard call my friend as it could be a power supply circuit problem or a mechanical problem with the disc mechanism. Most likly the first. Your probably gonna cause more damage to the unit trying to force open the door to get the disc out. SERVICING Do not attempt to service this unit yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. For example: a. When the power-supply cord or plug is damaged. b. If liquid has been spilled, or objects have fallen into the unit. c. If the unit has been exposed to rain or water. d. If the unit does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions, as an improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage and will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the unit to its normal operation. e. If the unit has been dropped or the cabinet has been damaged. f. When the unit exhibits a distinct change in performance, this indicates a need for service. Call 800-457-7777 Good Luck

My tv turns on and flashes the an image and then immediately turns off. Never has had any problems before and was working only an hour before problem began. What's up?

Today's tv now has its auto shut off protection. The TV, when it detected a hardware failure, shuts itself off to protect itself from further damage. Problems can be cause by a blown fuse, bad power supply or bad capacitors that might be leaking or bulging. If you take off your TV's cover and observed these things, they may need replacement. Do not touch those capacitors as it may get you electrically shocked. If you are not a technician, this is something that you cannot do yourself and needs professional expertise.

If it is still under warranty, you can save cost by having it serviced by an authorized Toshiba service center.

Toshiba TV/DVD combo turns on then off again.

try letting it sit for 15-20 minutes unplugged from the wall and maybe try another outlet depending on if u got plugged in to a power strip, possibly pulling to much power from that perticular outlet.

VHS problem, any help?

It sounds to me like you have a problem with the reel sensors not detecting movement of the tape through the VCR. This could also be caused by a defective voltage regulator(s) that powers the sensors. This model was made by symphonic/funai (1-800-242-7158), and it is not likely worth repairing.
