Question about Philips Magnavox 20MC4304 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo
When I try to FF or Rewind VCR tape with tape not playing it shuts TV down and ejects tape. I can FF and FR when tape is playing??? Any ideas? I have not opened it up and looked yet, thought I would ask first. I am a tech and have experience with TV's and such.

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

if you can't get the tape out enough to pull it very carefully out by hand, you'll have to bring it to a repair shop. the tape is probably twisted up inside and jammed.

You will need a technical person to open the unit. This problem can be as simple as a dirty sensor, or bad tape drive parts, or burned out computer chip.
