Tv shuts off after5 seconds

My tv is one of those 13 inch portable vcr/tv combos. Recently it started going off about 5 seconds after it was turned on.I've tried plugging it into a wall outlet versus an extension cord but it won't stay on. Could this have been caused by a power surge? Does it mean there is a short in the wiring?

Always be the belt on the charge motor of the vcr,when is to old slips and make the microprocesor detects error thats why shuts off the combo.
Good luck

My guess is that the prisim broken or led (light emitting diode) below it has failed so the vcr is stuck in an endless load...
It will have to be taken apart and the tape in it manually unloaded by turning the load motor counter clockwise. Then visually inspect the prisim and test the diode.
If any of this sounds too foreign take it to a good shop and they'll have it back and running in no time..
Hope this helps!

Tv problems

Este problema es muy usual en los combos,necesitas sacar dicho casete y despues checar si la video esta a tiempo si no lo esta remplazale la banda.Esto se deriva de que el micro detecta un error en la casetera por eso se te apaga.

In RCA T13208 13 in. TV/VCR Combo shut down after turn it on

The safety circuit is sensing a problem and is why it will not let the tv stay on,the cause could be a problem on the mechanics of the vcr,you need to get an estimate to see if it is worth the repair and might be able to keep using just the tv.
