Magnavox 27MDTR10S TV/VCR/DVD VCR Problem

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.

Thank you,
Mike Wassmuth

SOURCE: VCR TAPE IS STICK IN VCR PLAYER.

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.

My EWC1394 records programs, but when I rewind th tape, it shuts off. This happens several times before it starts to rewind the tape.


this is caused by the tape winding too tightly so when it rewinds it gets tension and thinks it is at the end of tape ,so stops.

It pays to FF and REW several times on new or other peoples tapes to have the tape acclimatised to the tension on your machine. It may also need to be serviced if it is doing it to tapes you have previously FF to the end and rewound. Older tapes stretch a little more than new tapes so are more forgiving.

Magnavox mwd 2206 dvd vcr player....shuts off with eject word across screen.


On a unit I checked with this same symptom, removing the top cover allows the unit to stay on and operate normally. There is some sort of sensor at the left middle of the chassis, which, when unblocked by any opaque object, allows the unit to remain on. A temporary fix (not advisable) would be to replace the top cover with a piece of clear plastic or taut saran wrap (no vent holes needed). It's unclear exactly where/what that sensor is from a cursory test. This is a work in progress on someone else's machine that I lack full access to.

TV shuts off by itself


I think that this might be a power supply problem. The VCR might be loading down the supply and causing the shut down. If you are going to try to fix this yourself I would shuuest you get a schematic and multimeter, and an oscilloscope, here is why, The schematic will tell you what voltages are normal, The multimeter will allow you to measure those voltages, the oscilloscope will allow you to test for ripple voltage which might be present riding on your dc voltage level. If you do not have access to this equipment or do not know how to use this type of equipment, I would suggest that you take the unit to a shop.

Symphonic sc1304, vcr problem


Pulley belt stretched, replace. Remove the back cover to tv, slide the chassis out, remove speaker connector, and other ones to allow the chassis to be out away from cabinet to take the metal cover off surrouding the vcr unit. Usually a couple of screws that hold the whole vcr unit in, remove these, lift the unit from the chassis carefully and check the belt as it is stretched and not making tight grip on the white pulleys that perform the mechanical functions of the VCR. When putting back together, and replaced the belt be sure to lift the vcr door inward before sliding the chassis back into cabinet so the door latch will open and close properly, otherwise you put a tape in and the door won't open back up.
