Question about Philips 14PV375 14 in. TV/VCR Combo
About a month ago, my TV/VCR developed a problem: It would switch itself off while it was playing certain video tapes. Whenever it would do this spontaneous shutdown, the remote and manual controls were useless, and the only way to get the video playing again was to cut the power, eject the cassette, re-insert the cassette and turn it on again. Initially, it was a rare occurance, and I put the disruption down to faulty or old video tapes. The problem persisted however, and began to get much worse. For a while I was able to resolve it by repeatedly fast-forwarding and rewinding the video for several minutes before playing. After a week though, even this solution proved fruitless. As it stands now, the screen flashes off as soon as any cassette is inserted into the video slot, and no amount of forwarding or rewinding can get it to play for more than a few seconds. At first I was sure the problem stemmed from the video portion of the machine, and that possibly the tape heads needed cleaning. But the machine is barely a year old, and the shutdowns are so persistant that I can't help but think that the problem is linked to the power supply of the entire unit. Has anyone out there experienced anything like this before, and if so, how did you remedy it? Robert

The set has a problem on the mechanical section of the VCR,it might be out of aligment or a part has gone bad completely and now needs to be replaced,dirty heads will not give you these symptoms,the power supply is sensing a problem and is doing what is suppose to do when it detects a problem,it seems that you only have a use for the TV unless you get the vcr repair.
